EGYPT: FIRING THE SECOND SHOT
In the last blog, I examined President Mohammed Morsi’s challenge to the generals. On the heels of that confrontation, Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton arrived in town. The exchange wasn’t much better.
Of course, the United States is concerned. Hosni Mubarak proved to be a good ally. Even with the problems of his administration, the strong man helped both the USA and Israel. A period of relative peace provided prosperity for Egypt. Clinton wisely wanted to encourage the relationship. Unfortunately, the new day remains filled with old wounds. Clinton’s initial encounter didn’t come off any better than Morsi’s first dance with the generals.
