White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs says Egypt is a strong and important ally and will remain that way.

Gibbs added that Washington is closely monitoring the protests in Egypt and that US President Barack Obama recognizes the right of people to express themselves peacefully without being subjected to violence.

Gibbs called for Egyptians to refrain from violence, insisting that the right to freedom of expression should not include violence.

The US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had previously said that the Egyptian government is stable and trying to find solutions for the woes of the Egyptian people.

I totally agree that the U.S. should stay out of the political conflict and let the sheeplovers take care of their own animalhouse the only way they know, destroying everything that is good and converting nice places in shitholes.
