Egypt near starvation. OBAMA sends weapons

Egypt is down to a less-than-two-month supply of wheat, but that doesn’t disturb the Hussein Obama administration. They’re sending F-16’s to Egypt instead. The US officials say Washington will deliver four F-16 fighter jets in the next few weeks. They are part of an already agreed bigger order of 20 planes – eight of which were sent to Egypt in January. The final eight are expected to be shipped later this year. White House spokesman Jay Carney on Wednesday reiterated that it would not be “in the best interests of the United States to make immediate changes to our assistance programmes”. He added that the administration would take its time to consider the implications of removing Mr Morsi from power. US military aid to Egypt is estimated to be $1.3bn (£860m) each year.
