Egypt has taken a very Dude-like approach to the prospect of Washington cutting off aid.
"Egypt’s interim Prime Minister Hazem el-Beblawi said in an interview Tuesday it would be a mistake if the United States cut off military aid but insisted Cairo could survive without it. . . . “Let’s not forget that Egypt went with the Russian military for support and we survived. So, there is no end to life,” he said. “You can live with different circumstances.”" - Al Arabiya, "Egypt could survive without U.S. military aid, says interim PM."
