    Considering the political inclination of Morsi, it was only a matter of time.
    Be ready for more posturing like this, but at the same time, they cannot behave like Iran as well because Israel is just next to the border.:lol:

    @pack leader : What is your assessment of the morale of the Egyptian Armed forces after the sacking of their Chief.

    I am under the impression that there is no love lost between the army and the MB.

    I need to confirm about the M1 Abrams. Saudi has them, but I thought Egyptian army was equipped with Russian tanks.

    Hahahhaa. American have a tendency of picking the wrong sides. Now a "democratic" government in Egypt showing all the signs of being anything but friendly. Enjoy the "Arab Spring".

    It's not too late in Syria.

    Under Hosni Mubarak, both Egypt and Israel had a good working relationship. Egyptian forces had kept the Palestinian groups on a tight leash and had sealed the border with Israel. However in the recent chaos in Egypt, it seems that the Sinai area has become a hot bed of militant activities.

    Egyptian sources believe that part of Al Qaeda cell may be operating in this restive region along with other Palestinian Groups.

    The Egyptian forces have come under attack from militants and there are unconfirmed news item in Egyptian media that the recent Sinai mopping up by the Army has been done at the request of Israel.

    There are media reports which claim that Israel is in the loop, with regards to the Egyptian troop reinforcements in Sinai, and has agreed to it.

    i don't blame America they had no choice Mubarak was old and politically weak
    you cant stop history the Russians will learn the same in Syria
    frankly Egypt is weak and not a major threat
    they have a large advanced armor core and air force but both are under armed (monkey model trash ) and under trained

    What makes you think that the current Egyptian government will not bow to Amreeka? For all I know this repositioning of armored force may genuinely be to forestall the so far unchecked rise of a more radical Islamic factions in the Sinai region, which is not only a threat to the more secular military but even to the current mildly Islamic regime (who no doubt cut a deal with Washington to rise to power).

    There is a saying today's radicals are tomorrow's moderates. Same is the case with Morsi.

    Meanwhile Morsi has tried to assure that Egypt would honour all international treaties. This seems to be aimed at Israel and the US, wrt the Camp David Agreement.

    Meantime the Sinai operations continue.
