America Play Its Hand

Since the first day when the Egyptian military staged the coup that ousted Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, it had been a suspicion of the world. The suspicion was that there was no way the Egyptian military would have staged the coup without the approval, or at least the tacit acknowledge, of the U.S government.

The suspicion was that despite what they say publicly, privately the U.S government was more than happy to see the back of President Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood government. The suspicions are now all in the past tense because U.S Secretary of State John Kerry has now all but admitted it.

In his strongest support yet for Egypt's new leadership, Kerry told a Pakistani television station that the Egyptian military was "restoring democracy" when it ousted Morsi on July 3. In his words, Kerry said that the military was “asked” to intervene by protesters and even so far to claim that the military “did not take over” the government.

Talk about a bloody joke! Not only did the U.S government not called the military coup a coup, they are now even saying that Egyptian military did not take over the government! Talk about a statement that defy common sense! If there was any doubts about America's position on the coup in Egypt, this most definitely settled it.
