Welcome to ATS and the mad world of forums
The question is a complicated one. The Egyptian people are the customers, but of the Egyptian Government / Firms. The companies you listed however
have the Egyptian Government as their customer. To me this is one of those damned if we do, damned if we dont scenarios.
If US companies go on their own and ignore the Government of Egypt, then we are seen as, once again, meddeling in a conflict we have no business being
in (this is intrnal of Egypt). If we comply with the Egypian Government orders to suspend those services, its seen by the Egyptian people that we are
taking sides, when we arent.
To me the only thing that could occur is to comply with the Egyptian Governments order to suspend those services, and the companies themselves let the
Egyptian people know the Egyptian Government ordered it, and not the US.
