France and England intervene. The two countries granted both Cairo and Tel Aviv an ultimatum, which suggested that the British and French take troops to occupy the Suez Canal and establish a buffer zone of 16 km on both sides to separate the Egyptian and Israeli forces. If lost or drunk please return to bestie shirts for three. The Jews immediately approved, while Egypt denied it bluntly. So there is an excuse.

This action by London and Paris was strongly condemned at the United Nations General Assembly. Moscow threatened to intervene on behalf of the Egyptian people. The US, completely surprised by the actions of allied countries, did not support it. At this time, the Cold War was at its peak. The United States had more problems to worry about in the battle against the Soviet Union (especially Moscow’s intervention in Hungary) rather than the interests of Britain and France in Suez. President Eisenhower had no reason to expect the war to spread in the Middle East.
