    • Worth repeating:
      "The U.S. provides roughly 1.6 billion dollars, including 1.3 billion dollars in sophisticated weaponry, in annual aid to Egypt, an agreement backed with powerful lobbying by the ISRAELI GOVERNMENT and U.S. WEAPONS MANUFACTURERS." (emphasis, mine) -- Jacob Chamberlain

      "A large chunk [of aid to Egypt] is conditional on buying U.S. made fighter jets and tanks – Lockheed Martin signed an agreement in 2010 to sell 20 F-16 fighter jets to Egypt by December 2014, under a $2.5 billion deal. Boeing and Sikorsky Aircraft sell Egypt CH-47 Chinook and Black Hawk helicopters respectively, while General Dynamics got $395 million in 2011 to assemble Abrams tanks in suburban Cairo. [...]

      Presidents in Cairo and Washington may come and go, but both the Egyptian military and the CONTRACTORS THAT SUPPLY THEM, know that their bond is stronger than democracy." (emphasis mine) --Pratap Chatterjee
