Not only has the administration’s “reset” button failed with Russia, but now Middle Eastern countries which have been in the American sphere of influence for decades are looking for better relations with other major nations. Saudi Arabia has said “major changes” are coming concerning their relationship with the US. And now Egypt is turning away from the US as well:
The Russian foreign and defence ministers will travel to Egypt next week on a visit seen as signalling a growing rapprochement between the two countries as the military-backed authorities in Cairo reach out for new allies and seek to lessen dependence on Washington.
ALSO HOT AIR: "Some Egyptians this as a “back to the future” moment for Egypt when Gamal Abdel Nasser aligned Egypt with the then USSR in what some consider to be “glory days” of Egypt."
I PREDICTED THIS ON AUGUST 5 - NO ONE ELSE DID, ANYWHERE:

PREDICTION: BECAUSE OF OBAMA'S SUPPORT FOR THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, EGYPT WILL SOON BE BACK IN RUSSIA'S CAMP
PUTIN WILL TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OBAMA'S DISASTROUS SUPPORT OF THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD AND OUR CRUMBLING RELATIONSHIP WITH THE EGYPTIAN MILITARY FORGE AN ALLIANCE WITH THE EGYPTIAN MILITARY AND HENCE THE GOVERNMENT OF EGYPT - WHICH WAS FIRMLY IN THE USSR'S CAMP UNTIL NIXON'S ADMINISTRATION.HMMM: If Obama was secretly working for Putin, then he couldn't have done a better job of helping Russia.
