  • Wael Ghonim vs. Barack Obama: Change we Can Believe in, Yes we Can
    • To these posters repeating the much overblown threat of a Iranian Revolution Redux (You know, the threat stated constantly by Mubarack & The Jerusalem Post.):
      I ask you, even if it was so, don't you understand that trying to squelch the will of the people would simply enhance the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood; just as Kissinger's groping of Iran empowered the fundamentalists.

      I just love it when Obomabots & Hillbots contend that "he's just playing it smart" or that "he's walking a tightrope, poor thing.."
      The point is, at the minimum, he shouldn't have endorsed Suleiman and Hillary shouldn't have been protecting a constitution written by a dictatorship and insisting that Mubarak stay on till the fall. In order to stay in the good grace of our other dictator friends & Israel, he should have remained silent while warning the regime, through diplomatic channels, of the risks if there is a bloodbath.
      Tragically:
      What was lost, was a golden moment to bolster our credibility with the people of the Muslim world.

      Here is a link to a piece that exemplifies our major problem in this domain: (one may find it nauseating)

  • Egypt: I ask Myself Why
    • Forgot to say thank you, once again, for calling out our nation's foreign policy.
      It looks as though any chance for improved relations between the Muslim world and we "judeo-christians" has again been squandered.
      Again, we chose to sacrifice the "other's" freedom in order to execute our "War on Terror".
      Seems as though BHO & HRC haven't a clue and that they aren't aware the term blowback.

    • I am dumbfounded by the willful turning away from asking serious questions of the administration's motives by fellow Obama supporters.
      I'll bet that, if it was Dubya & Condi running the same show,
      there would be real dissent.
