Stratrisks: “Russia and Egypt have reached a preliminary deal for Cairo to buy arms worth $3.5 billion from Moscow, Interfax news agency quoted the head of a Russian state arms agency as saying on Wednesday.
Speaking during an arms trade exhibition in South Africa, the head of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation, Alexander Fomin, did not give further details.
Russia, the world’s second-largest arms exporter, has sought to boost its military ties with Egypt after relations between Cairo and its long-standing ally Washington soured, causing some defense cooperation between the two countries to be frozen.”
Opinion: The great uniter who would ‘calm the oceans and heal the planet’, blew a 30-year relationship with Egypt to smithereens.
It began with an invitation to the June 2009 Cairo speech. The Muslim Brotherhood, parent organization to Hamas, al Qaeda, and Islamic Jihad was front-row center by invitation of America’s new president Barack Obama.
By February 2011, the Middle East was in flames. The Arab Spring gave the US president the opportunity to dump Hosni Mubarak and his 30 year relationship with Israel, and install the Muslim Brotherhood as president of Egypt.
Department of National Intelligence James Clapper told the American people that the Brotherhood eschewed violence. The US State Dept., headed by Hillary Clinton, bestowed 1.5 billion dollars, Abrahams tanks, and F15 fighter jets with absolutely no strings attached.
Corruption and mayhem followed, until the Egyptian military headed by General Al-Sisi intervened and executed thousands of members and locked up the Brotherhood senior officials to stand trial.
Now the relationship with the largest Muslim state in the world is fractured and Al-Sisi is in league with Russia and, by extension, China.
Not coincidentally, all three nations: Russia, Egypt and China represent the three kings who will meet to do battle in the campaign of Armageddon against the Beast army of Antichrist.
