Col: How would you distinquish his negative attitude toward US versus his negative attitude toward Israel?

In re Amre Moussa, he is a kind of vestigial Nasserist. He would not admit that, but he is. The US is seen by him as a manifestation of the colonialist and imperialist past while Israel is a violation of "Arab" "national" sovereignty. pl

And I gotta tell ya this, though you will disagree, implying that there is a US "Left" left, never mind that it has any influence, is heartening to this old leftie.

Friggin IKE would "Left" in this world. Now, politically correct obsessives, that is whole nother thing, as they say. I could readily imagine that group reaching for the vapors if Suleiman ran. Once, that is, it was explained to them who Suleiman was and what he was seen 'representing'. They would not know him on a 'cold call'.

Supreme Command of the Armed Forces?

Supreme Council of the Armed Forces. This is the group of generals who had been an advisory body but which Mubarak left in charge when he resigned. They have ruled since then with no real legal authority. pl

That's some "R", but thank you for your suggestion.
