Egypt and US Weapons Sales: Oh The Irony Of It All!

In response:

Let me see if I can wrap my head around this.

From the article: "The U.S. gives Egypt about $1.5 billion in annual aid, of which $1.3 billion is in the form of military assistance".

That annual aid and "military assistance" translates into American weapons manufacturers' jobs (General Dynamics Corp and Lockheed Martin Corp) being dependent upon US sales contracts with Egypt?

Obama is going to review this "aid" after the Egyptian Military (who de facto employs American weapons manufactures) did a coup?  How embarrassingly undemocratic! 

Oh the irony of it all!  This is another perfect example of the corporate 1% running and ruining our country.
