Call in to speak with the host
Recent events in Egypt have shown the world the power and importance of the Egyptian military on that countries government and affairs. One of the most modern and well-equipped such forces in the Middle East, Egypts Armed Forces are quite different from those of the United States and other Western nations. Their reach extends into politics, but business, foreign affairs, and even the keeping of the peace between themselves and Israel. Arguably the most stable and influential institution in all of Egypt, the Armed Forces have become the power base around which all other government institutions must operate.
Few Americans have any real experience with the Egyptian military, but today on Military Monday, host and author John D Gresham will guide you through this powerful and influential force with guest Lon Nordeen. Mr. Nordeen is a former marketing representative for McDonnell Douglas and Boeing, with extensive experience and travel throughout the Middle East. In addition, he is the author of a number of books on Middle Eastern air forces, including one on the Egyptian Air Force. Please join us at 1 PM EDT for what will be a rare look inside the Egyptian military.
It's good to talk.
