Would Egypt be better of without suspension of US aid?

Though the partial suspension of the US economic and military assistance to Egypt seems to pose negative impacts to Egypt in terms of its economic and military health. In the long run, suspension of such aid might be advantageous rather than disadvantageous for the Egyptians.

Freedom from economic assistance from the United States, would motivate Egyptians towards self-relianceIt to develop their independent economic life and take advantage of the vast Arab and Moslem markets. Turkey in the late 60’s and early 70’s after being free of US economic assistance, its economy grew more independently towards success. Egypt has enough technology and entrepreneurship that can yield stronger relations with surrounding markets in particular through the common language and mutual interests.
