Foreign Policy

The US has given billion of dollars in “help” to Egypt, every year, since the Camp David accords with Israel in the late 1980’s. Why did the US helped this foreign dictator for so long?

Egypt was never a democracy under Mubarak; nevertheless, the most democratic and most powerful country in the world – the US – helped his regime for decades, at the expense of his people. Not a “proud American” moment.
