Abstract The USA was apparently opposed to the Suez treaties. Various exciting factors lead to this opposition to a country that had earlier in 1950 had broad and extensive interests in the Middle East. To begin with, during the Arab-Israel treaty, the USA deceived the two countries that it would stay neutral in addition to ensuring other states involved also were not biased. Later, these were perceived as divisive decisions as the USA already had taken sides. Additionally, the Western countries heavily lost their diplomacy due to the lost potential agreement with the region. In the same way, it could not in any way criticize the crushing between Russia and Hungary due to its lost diplomatic standing. The total respect of this narrative questions the validity and the reasons why the USA failed to back up Britain during the beginning of the run on Sterling that was initiated as a result of the Suez Canal Crisis.

The dam was purposed to provide an effective flow of food and export the surplus to other nations. In this way, the president believed the people would be relieved off hunger and their economic status substantiated and elevated. This proposed project by President Nasser was a significant prerequisite to the relationship between the USA and Egypt states especially with respect to economic issues. In the 1952 revolution however, it was politically infringed. As a result, King Farouq was not only overthrown through a coup but also the constitution and democratic monarchy of Egypt was obliterated. Ultimately, Egypt became an independent state. Whilst all these happenings occurred, the USA had projected an effective strategy that would help support and protect the Egypt’s Suez Canal from destruction.
