It is ridiculous how senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham are busy dictating how Egyptians should handle their situation by threatening to withhold $1.5b in annual US charity. The American manifest destiny is a fools errand.

What does it say about the Egyptians if their survival as a people depend on the goodwill of American policy and politicians. The universe did not forget that the Republican NeoCon ideology got America involved in all the wars in the Middle East.

What is senators McCain and Graham’s agenda? In Afghanistan they inform the world and the troops how more unstable the Middle East is now than before. No kidding so hundreds of thousands of lives lost, Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden killed, trillions of dollars spent, collapse of many economies and 13 years later senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham are telling the world what. Their plan did not work so we need to bomb them some more.

Why is Egypt tagged in the Middle East? We know Egypt is in the center of the world and in the African Continent. Today Egypt might show an Arab face and physically placed in the Middle East but the fact remains Egypt is in Africa and African.

Egypt has never had an Arab pharaoh so when Mohamed Morsi proclaimed himself pharaoh it was no different from when Alexandra “the great” first arrived in Egypt.

Remember the story of the pharaoh holding the Jews in captivity? The “let my people go” deal. So erasing all signs of the great history of the black man is an ongoing agenda.

In time man will come to realize that religion and government cannot be used to dominate the people, every man manifests their own destiny.
