Good work Hillary and Barack. After Egypt asked for the military support it was promised and never received, Sissi is moving on to Russia for support. I thought I would play a few of the clips and go down memory lane of another failed policy that now will turn one of our former allies over to Russia who has been licking their chops at getting back to Egypt after getting kicked out decades ago. (WordPress has been acting up, so here goes.)
MOSCOW (AP) — Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi arrived in Russia on Tuesday for his first official visit as president and was immediately shown a selection of Russian military hardware for sale.
Russia, through expanded military and economic cooperation, has been seeking greater influence with Egypt, an important U.S. ally in the Middle East.
The military hardware, including new armored vehicles and missile systems, was put on display at the airport in Sochi for el-Sissi, the former Egyptian army chief, to inspect upon his arrival, Russian news agencies reported. He “listened attentively” to explanations of the weapons systems’ potential, the reports said.
He then headed for a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the mountains above Sochi, the site of the 2014 Winter Olympics.
