From Egypt, the message is 'Obama keep your aid'

From Egypt, the message is 'Obama keep your aid' | Anal-ysis | Scoop.it
TheAlienanthropologist's insight:

2. To say the Gulf monarchies are replacing the void is a joke. We all know who these monarchies are beholden to. Saudi, Qatar etc... cannot fart without explicit permission from the US.
