It is clear from many media outlets and the ground facts that the overthrow of the democratically elected leader of Egypt was indeed a coup. But, the USA is hesitant to declare it as a coup. What are the reasons, apart from the promised fund aid to Egypt, which deter the US from declaring this coup as a coup?
According to U.S. law, military aid must be suspended to Egypt as this is clearly a coup. Is it possible that the USA actually favors this coup and wants to replace the leader with its own UN backed leader like El Baradei?
