The US, the Brotherhood and the opposition: Old wine in new bottles | Egypt Independent

“Washington is walking a fine line to preserve these conflicting interests, all the while realizing that sacrificing Egypt as a strategic ally is out of the question, not only because of the cost, but also because it is not the proper time to radically review relationships. Washington is counting on being able to provide economic and financial support to bolster the Egyptian economy, and on the ability of the Egyptian military to intervene if internal conditions deteriorate and Morsy’s regime loses control like Mubarak’s.

In other words, Washington is dealing with Morsy as a bitter medication that will either treat the patient or push him to take another pill that may be even more bitter and less effective.”
