  1. Why not just stop meddling with the politics of other nations? After all, I think that you have now supported all three sides of this conflict and have somehow managed to get most Egyptians to hate the United States government. That is not so easy given the fact that most Egyptians tend to like and admire Americans.

    1. Because it’s NOT us meddling in anything, it’s THEM waging war against us for generations. Egypt is aflame now in large part because Obama is a complete amateur at leadership and they openly call him on it.

        Not meddling? You have given the Egyptian military leaders $20 billion since 1970. You have sent advanced aircraft, tanks, and other weapons. How is that anything but meddling?

        It is not just Obama. For blame you have to look to Reagan, Bush I & II, Clinton, and Obama. Not to mention Congress and all kinds of ‘think tanks’ in and around Washington.

        If you look at the situation closely you have to conclude that both parties are equally bad and equally guilty.

  2. The fact is Iraqis HAVE embraced democracy – what they need is opportunity to make it grow unencumbered by another Islamo-Arab attack; this is something Obama has refused to do.

      Democracy? You mean the system that allows the Shiite majority to tell Sunnis and Christians what to do? Why is that a good thing? And stop blaming Obama. It was Bush who lied the country into war.
