American Legislators Urge Cautious Response to Egyptian Crisis
Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.) says we should be a force for stability
WASHINGTON — U.S. lawmakers are urging a cautious response to rapidly-unfolding events in Egypt.
Republican Senator Bob Corker says the United States should aim to play a stabilizing role in the face of upheaval and uncertainty in Egypt. He spoke on the Fox News Sunday television program.
"Something has happened [in Egypt] that is going to provoke a lot of unrest for some time. It has implications in other parts of the region. But what we [the United States] should be doing right now is urging calmness, urging the military to move through the civilian process as quickly as possible," he said.
