Assessing Blame for the Violence in Egypt - New York Times

Re "Military Madness in Cairo" (editorial, Aug. 15):

In analyzing the military's violence, you write: "The Muslim Brotherhood must also share responsibility. Since the July 3 coup that ousted President Mohamed Morsi, it has shown too little interest in negotiating a peaceful path out of the crisis. And even before that coup, Mr. Morsi and other Brotherhood leaders had displayed little interest in reaching out to Egyptians of different political and religious persuasions."

Yet the same day, Reuters published remarks by Bernardino Leon, the European Union envoy for the Middle East, stating clearly that the United States and the European Union had presented a compromise that would likely have resolved the impasse, which was accepted by the Muslim Brotherhood but rejected by the military. His conclusion was: "All that has happened today was unnecessary."

Accounts by your own Cairo correspondents in the immediate aftermath of the July 3 coup also revealed that President Morsi was willing to meet demands by the opposition.

In the United States it is fashionable to try to blame all sides, but in this case, the facts point to one murderer only.

Re "His Options Few, Obama Rebukes Egypt's Leaders" (front page, Aug. 16):

President Obama's options may be few, but one that he has — the suspension of military and economic aid to Egypt — is a mighty cudgel. Even if the ending of $1.3 billion a year of American support did not cause Egypt's generals to end their murderous ways, it would dissociate the United States from the carnage that is currently being carried out with full American material support.

That United States tax dollars are being used to kill hundreds of civilians, including the shooting of wounded people trying to make their way to makeshift hospitals, is nauseating in the extreme.
