White House Condemns Violence in Egypt

The White House on Wednesday condemned violence in Egypt that has killed more than 100 people and said it opposed the state of emergency declared in that country. 

The escalating violence poses a challenge to the Obama administration, which refused to declare it a coup when Egypt's military toppled Mohamed Morsi, who had been democratically elected president.

    What exactly is the point of this?

    When is the last time they released a press statement applauding violence anywhere? Even if they actually did they'd have to be idiots to say it.

    "White House applauds violence in Kashmir, encourages both sides to escallate rapidly" just isn't ever going to happen.
