Recommendation 1 from ‘The NY Times’

Article Name:‘Enabling Egypt’s military rulers’

By: ‘Editorial’

Looking at it, its America’s internal matter, but on the other hand one country not granting basic freedoms and then supporting that country with military is not done at all. Instead, part of the international community, America should pressurise Egypt to grant basic freedoms. Because with great power comes great responsibility, America, being one of the world power should focus on humanity and its rights and military and weapons are usually used to suppress the both of them.

Summary:

The article talks about the relationship between America and Egypt, which is solely based on America supporting Egypt’s military. Further, the article states that Obama’s administration should have taken the chance when it had to support the civil society when the revolution brewed in Egypt, but it did not and it made a serious error. further the error is being made even more grave by giving Egypt the aid even when Egypt is not supporting basic freedoms. The article states that Congress had held up the aid, which was only to be released if Egypt met the criterion of providing basic freedoms. However, instead of making sure that this criterion was met, Hillary Clinton waived off the requirement.

By: ‘Daniel Poulter’

Agreed, such a law not be put into legislation as it is bound to put pressure on the patient and the family, including the feeling of guilt that it will instill in the people who help the assisted easy dying with the help of the law, always wondering what if. What really can be done is that a special cell can be maintained, which can look into the requests of patients and decide accordingly.
