Egypt’s top leaders in Russia

13 02 2014

Egypt’s new strong man, Field Marshall President-to-be Sisi, along with the Junta regime’s Foreign Minister Fahmy, is in Russia.  They’re not there for the Olympics.  They are there in Moscow for arms, political cover, and regional alignment shuffling.  Furthermore, at the behest of the Saudis, their primary money patron now, they will also be pressuring and enticing the Russians to back-off support for the Assad Regime in Damascus in return for help repositioning Russia as a Great Power in the Middle East region once again.   It’s an offer Putin will no doubt find interesting, fitting, and enticing.

Then, after the upcoming shame election being arranged to put General Sisi in a Presidential suit — like predecessor Generals Nasser, Sadat, and Mubarak before him — may be expect the same delegation to be heading to Beijing, maybe this very Year of the Horse in fact.
