Another Egyptian Tragedy

During the past sixty years, the people of Egypt have enjoyed the benefit of one military ruler after another. As of this date, there is no evidence being led by a general is any better than being led by the corner candy store man. The economy is stagnant, thousands who obtain education, flee seeking a job, and opportunity to enjoy freedom of speech. The latest example of an incompetent general is General Abdel Fatah al Sisi, who definitely is NOT a sissy when it comes to violating human rights. There was something termed a “trial” for three members of al-Jazeera and all three were found guilty of something. Amnesty International insists the so called, trial,”failed to produce a single shred of solid evidence.”

Australian Peter Geste, Canadian-Egyptian Mohamed Fahmy,and Egyptian Baher Mohamed were sentenced to terms of seven to ten years. US Secretary of State John Kerry asked President Sisi to reverse the decision. The General–I have no idea if this general actually did any fighting in a war–responded: “We will not interfere in judicial rulings. We must respect judicial rulings and not criticize them even if we do not understand this.”

How about Canada, Australia, and the US freezing funds for Egypt?
