    Obama sent 400 US troops to Egypt. Nothing has changed for the better in Egypt and many Egyptians suspect Morsi is working for the USA. Are they right?

    What hysterical rot. The article itself explains:

    A Fort Hood Press Center release reveals that a battalion task force from the 3rd Brigade Combat Team will be part of the Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) peacekeeping contingency based along the southeast coast of the Sinai Peninsula between Eilat, Israel, and Sharm-el-Sheikh, Egypt. Once there, they will man positions and checkpoints, report any violations of the 1979 Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty, and remain prepared to respond to threats. That treaty required Israeli forces to withdraw from the Sinai Peninsula and for Egypt to keep the area demilitarized.


    Morsi is the democratically elected President of Egypt. "Working for the US"?

    EDIT: Maybe Morsi is working for the Fiji islands; they have 329 troops in the MFO.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multinational_Force_and_Observers

    He may be working too closely in cooperation with the US to suit some of his political rivals in Egypt.

    So the military, the protesting hordes of civilians and the Muslim Brotherhood are the three players in Egypt, with Al Qaeda, Iran, "the Blacks", Israel, the Saudis maybe even some Brits lurking in the shadows.

    I wonder what the Saudis have to say?

    The Constitution that the military just suspended indefinitely got about 64% of the vote in a popular referendum just last December.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egyptian_constitutional_referendum,_2012

    If he was a USA puppet, wouldn't the New World Order/Bilderberg group/freemasons/illuminati/Monsanto have prevented his demise?

    People in Egypt don't trust the USA. Supporters of Morsi often blame the USA for Morsi's removal from power and the opposition to Morsi think he is another puppet of the USA like Mubarak. Criticism of the USA comes from both sides.

    The USA government is losing influence because of their past meddling. Assad is glad Morsi was removed from power and the USA is not having much success removing Assad any longer.

    Puppet? Why there was an election. Everybody knows that elections prevent that sort of thing since they are democratic and all.

    I find Mohamed ElBaradei, a former U.N. nuclear agency chief's appointment troubling. Maybe I am wrong.

    You list 5 groups that have similar aims, but there are also as many, if not more, radical Islamic groups with similar aims, whose hatred for each other is only exceeded by their hatred of Western/Judeo-Christion values.

    The groups that favor a collectivist NWO are many, but none support the others, despite their common hatred of capitalist free markets.

    I don't know any groups that strive for a "collectivist NWO". Can you name a few, and how they are influencing the situation in Egypt?

    You just named five. No their Islamic counterparts are fighting for influence in Egypt. Getting into a debate on the CFR, Bilderbergers, or the variety of Islamic extremist groups and sects isn't my purpose. Only trying to get recognition that on every basic front, there are multiple players, and because they are similar doesn't mean they play on the same team.

    I named five groups, three of which don't exist, and the other two have absolutely nothing to do with a "collectivist NWO", even with an absurd mushroom-induced stretch of the imagination.
