The United States and other Capitalist nations have a policy of self-interest but are sugar coated with sweet words to appease the public opinion.
With regards to Egypt, the United States has been pouring $1.5 billion each year for military aid and similar amount for economic aid. That amounts to almost $60 billion over the past 3 decades. The United States has been fully aware of imprisonment and torture of all political, religious voices in Egypt and the corruption at a systemic level. She supported Mubarak till his last days, she then supported the SCAF, and then Morsi and his Islamist government. Now it is the turn of Sisi and the old regime with a new face to receive support from the States.
The US has now agreed to continue to release the military aid to Egypt which was frozen over the past years or so due to the uncertainty. In other words the US will be paying the Egyptians to ensure their interests will be fulfilled in the region and Egypt can continue to be its lacky.
Although strict conditions have been put in place that go with the aid, however ‘The conditions include free and fair elections and the right to free assembly. However, Congress also passed a waiver that allows the secretary of state to sidestep the conditions if necessary for national security.’
