The United States urged Egypt’s military to move swiftly on plans to transfer full power to an elected civilian government and suggested that failure to do so would prompt a review of US-Egypt ties—which includes billions of dollars in military and civilian aid.

This step from the US administration could actually make things worse for the Egyptian people and could hamper US interests in the region. These interests include keeping the peace treaty with Israel, cooperation in counter terrorism efforts, smooth transport in the Suez Canal, assistance in possible military operations against Iran, and respect for human rights.
