WHAYT??? the Americans are doing something USEFUL for Egypt for once??? I can't believe it...
If this is true, then it's a VERY good step in the right direction for Egypt.
"But there’s more to it. The Americans have started considering a new barter tactic if the Egyptian military want their continued aid. There’s talk of SCAF divesting significant parts of their non-military corporations: the pots and pans manufacturing plant; the Wataniyya petrol station network; Alexandria Shipyard that produces merchant vessels and warships and offers its repair services to private shipping companies, and the General Egyptian Company for Railway Wagons and Coaches."
