If there are no good alternatives, America should choose the least bad alternative. U.S. policy should be guided by self-interest. It may not be in the world community's power to avert Egyptian state failure, short of a massive and continuing commitment of financial aid that seems outside the realm of political possibility. At a minimum, America should seek to prevent Egypt's crisis from turning into a regional security disaster, while maximizing its influence over Egyptian institutions and prospective governments.In summary: the United States should do its utmost to prevent terrorists from taking advantage of political instability in Egypt, and to pre-empt any regionalization of the country's crisis, while taking steps in conjunction with the international community to mitigate the burgeoning humanitarian disaster. There is no recent precedent for managing state failure in a country of Egypt's size and regional importance, and it is difficult to specify policy responses ex ante. Below are some general indications of what American crisis management might attempt to accomplish.The United States should distance itself from the parties perceived to be responsible for state failure. America's identification with the Morsi government has become an embarrassment and a liability. Whether the government of Mohamed Morsi bears responsibility for Egypt's economic collapse, or whether the mismanagement of the economy during 60 years of military rule is responsible, is something for economic historians to decide. For the present, nothing fails like failure, and the United States should not take ownership of the failure.The United States should not endorse any political party or institution in a fluid and possibly chaotic period of social turmoil. Rather, it should emphasize America's sympathy for pluralistic democracy, open markets and financial transparency. It is too much to expect the much-vaunted but ephemeral spirit of Tahrir Square in February 2011 to triumph over Egypt's propensity towards chaos, but the United States at this point has nothing to lose by standing up for its own principles and encouraging pro-Western political elements.The United States should emphasize sharply and unambiguously that anti-Western tendencies in the Egyptian government, including inflammatory statements about Israel by President Morsi and his advisors, undermine world confidence in Egypt and worsen the economic crisis.The United States should have contingency plans in cooperation with the Egyptian military to prevent disruption of traffic plying the Suez Canal.The United States should cooperate with elements of Egypt's military leadership to ensure that weapons stockpiles do not make their way into the hands of elements hostile to American interests. Arms sales to Egypt should be suspended until the political situation is resolved to America's satisfaction. The Egyptian military must understand that future military cooperation depends on its cooperation in the present crisis.
The United States should warn Iran and its allies in the strongest possible terms not to fish in Egypt's troubled waters.The United States should work with international relief organizations to provide emergency food supplies, with the proviso that food distribution remains under the direct control of international organizations. The United States should be seen as a friend of the Egyptian poor in a moment of dire need, rather than as a prop to an unpopular and incompetent government.In this sort of crisis management, the object of each policy measure is not to end the crisis - that is not within America's power to accomplish - but at each step to give America more maneuvering room and credibility to act in the next phase of the crisis. It is a different sort of thinking than typically applies to foreign policy, but Egypt's predicament is a new and unwelcome challenge that demands a different sort of policy response.
[ed notes;Priceless little gem we have here..because they(JINSA) the jewish zionist war lobby in U.S., makes pretty interesting admissions.It admits us(zionist ran)was backing mb!It admits(its no secret to anyone really)that us is responsible for the coming state failure in Egypt,due to us support for the military establishment and its expenditures for decades(i should also mention the pro us neoliberal model).They also then want to have the zionist ran us govt do their best to extricate themselves from finding themselves culpable and cumplicit when the state finally collapses and angry egyptians start pointing fingers not just at u.s. who backed mubarak and now backs mb ,but the u.s.(zionist ran)could counter those crimes it committed against egyptians by posing as being on the side of democracy and their struggle for dignity,something the zionist ran us government has supressed for decades,thru its brutal client regimes!More of an insult is them saying this can be done by offering food assistance when masses literally starve(food shortages in Egypt are already alarming at moment)soon as state collapses, on a scale similar to what ethiopia experienced for decades!
