Adding to the spectacular absurdity of U.S. troops protecting Morsi’ thuggish regime–and by extension a Muslim Brotherhood that spawned al Qaeda and Hamas–is the reality that some of the troops deployed there come from the same military base where another Islamist, Maj. Nidal Hasan, killed 13 and wounded 32 of his fellow soldiers in 2009.

In yet another remarkable display of Obama’s determination to secure the Middle East for 
Islamofascists, 400 U.S. troops will reportedly be deployed to Egypt to augment the police force of  Islamist President Mohamed Morsi. They will be part of a 13-country force stationed in Egypt inanticipation of protests, scheduled for June 30th, calling for the removal of Morsi. Curiously,whereas Obama readily threw former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak under the bus in 2011,the White House is now eager to defend the regime of Morsi, who, like his Muslim Brotherhoodsponsors, is well on his way to imposing the Saudi Arabianmodel of governance on Egypt.The so-
called “peacekeeping mission” on which the U.S. troops
will serve is expected to last nine months. It follows six months of training by troops at both Fort Hood, Texas and Fort Irwin,California. That training reportedly included crowd controlmeasures as well as Molotov cocktail attack response.
”Soldiers
encountered Molotov cocktails and other dangerous items in the
training,” reported a local TV
news station out of Killeen, TX thatbroke the story.A Fort Hood Press Center releaserevealsthat a battalion taskforce from the 3rd Brigade Combat Team will be part of theMultinational Force and Observers (MFO) peacekeeping contingency based along the southeastcoast of the Sinai Peninsula between Eilat, Israel, and Sharm-el-Sheikh, Egypt. Once there, theywillmanpositions and checkpoints, report any violations of the 1979 Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty,and remain prepared to respond to threats. That treaty required Israeli forces to withdraw from theSinai Peninsula and for Egypt to keep the area demilitarized. An exception to the treaty wasauthorized in 2011 when Israel allowed several hundred Egyptian troops into the area to quellviolence that occurred then.Troops assigned to the MFO are not under operational command of their respective nations, but
commanded by the MFO itself. The MFO’s headquarters are loc
ated in Rome, Italy. With regard toAmerican troops, the MFOwebsitenotes they will be expected to provide a Quick Reaction Forceshould the need arise.The need is likely to arise. Since former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was ousted

Mohamed Morsi has moved swiftly to consolidate hispower. He hassuppressedthe media and the arts, and issued an edict boosting his power andsideliningthe judiciary in the process. Heremovedkey officers from the Egyptian military, and allowed Muslim Brotherhood loyalists torewrite
the nation’s constitution.
Attackson CopticChristian churches has occurred with alarming frequency, and women also face a dark future in anation sexual harassment in endemic, and Muslim Brotherhood memberscondemneda UN reportthat gave judges, rather than husbands, authority in cases of divorce while granting women fullrights to file legal complaints against their husbands for rape or sexual harassment.
 
As a result of his overreach, there is massive opposition
to Morsi’s
oppressive regime. A liberalsecular group known as the Rebels hascollected15 million signatures on petitions calling for 
Morsi’s imp
eachment. That number represents a substantially larger total than the 13.2 millionvotes Morsi got in the 2012 election. The group intends todeliver 
the petitions to Egypt’s SupremeConstitutional Court, the nation’s highest, prior 
to the June 30 demonstrations.
 
The regime did not take one step toward fulfilling the goals of the revolution,” said Rebel
volunteer Amir Mahrous, 21, who was gatheri
ng signatures in Cairo. “This is why we are rebellingagain.”
 Morsi supporters claim they have garnered 10 million signatures in support of the regime. OnJune 21, 100,000 of his supporters held a pro-government rally in Cairo. Signs carried by thedemonstrators read,
”The Koran is the constitution” and “Islam is the solution.” Morsi himself 
contends the Rebels petition carries no weight.Thus, there is a burgeoning standoff between liberal secular Egyptians one side, and dedicatedIslamists on the other. One that could precipitate widespread violence in four days. And PresidentBarack Obama has sent American troops to Egypt

is the reality that some of thetroops deployed there come from the same military base where another Islamist, Maj. Nidal Hasan,killed 13 and wounded 32 of his fellow soldiers in 2009.
That attack was labeled “workplace violence” and troops and their families were denied Purple
Hearts and survivors benefits when the administrationclaimedthat such awards, given tothose
”wounded or killed in any action against an enemy of the United States”
would
”set thestage for a formal declaration that Major Hasan is a terrorist,” thereby jeopardizi
ng his ability toreceive a fair trial.
As is often the case with the “most transparent administration in history,” the White House
hasmaintainedsilence regarding American troops being deployed into a potential nation-widefirestorm. Egyptian military spokesman Ahmed Ali insists that media reports regarding the
deployment are inaccurate and that American troops will be nothing more than part of “the
periodical renewal routine for the US faction of the 13-state multinational force deployed in Sinai
since the peace treaty.” He further insisted the MFO “is
 
not armed with military operations gear.”
 Egyptian Major Ahmed Shaaban echoed that contentioninsistingthe 400 troops were only part of 
a “routine” replacement of 
 
fellow U.S. soldiers on Sinai’s border.
 
“They are only training
to protect themselves as a matter of high-
level security,” he insisted. “I don’t think these trainings
are necessary because the peacekeeping force is not even authorized to conduct any military
operations; they are only there to observe and report,” he added.
 In the meantime, Reuters reports that Egyptians are stocking up on food, fuel and cash in
anticipation of protests that “many fear will be the most violent and disruptive this year.”
Furthermore, the U.S. embassy announced it would be closed on June 30, and warned Americansin Egypt to ge
t enough supplies to make it through an “extended period of time.”
 Last month, Secretary of State John Kerryreleased$1.3 billion in U.S. military aid to the Morsiregime, despite a law that requires him to certify that the Egyptian government
”is supporting the
transition to civilian government, including holding free and fair elections, implementing policiesto protect freedom of expression, association and religi
on, and due process of law.” Kerry waived
that restriction
