The pretense is over.
The U.S. backed illegal military coup in Egypt which overthrew the democratically elected government is now codified by the Obama administration as a legitimate government worthy of Sec. John Kerry’s praise.
Thousands have died at the hands of the rekindled Mubarak era death squads and many more disappeared into the old Mubarak style secret police detention systems brought back by al-Sisi when he took power after being given the go-ahead by Kerry and other high ranking Obama administration officials.
The constitution which was purposefully written by the Morsi government to prohibit IMF austerity reforms and safeguard worker’s rights in Egypt, is gone. Torn up. Being rewritten by technocrats with neoliberalism and free market reforms at the forefront of their concerns.
Morsi was about to sign up with the BRICS nations, creating what he called the E-BRICS alignment. All of that is over with now.
al-Sisi has cracked down on the tunnels leading into Gaza which the Palestinians have come to depend on for providing the bare necessities of life in the largest open air prison in the world.
