Is this entire situation not the Islamic Take over of Egypt’s LAW and order? Did America’s Own leader not Support The Brother hood and its installed dictator? Why is the International community Ignoring the Destabilization of the Middle East that is going on today?

So when can we expect President Obama to give a speech and proclaim “Morsi has got to go”?

From Reuters Jan 31 2011

http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/01/31/us-egypt-israel-usa-idUSTRE70U53720110131

“Obama on Sunday called for an “orderly transition” to democracy in Egypt, stopping short of calling on Mubarak to step down, but signaling that his days may be numbered.”

“”Jordan and Saudi Arabia see the reactions in the West, how everyone is abandoning Mubarak, and this will have very serious implications,” Haaretz daily quoted one official as saying.”

“”The question is, do we think Obama is reliable or not,” said an Israeli official, who declined to be named.

“Right now it doesn’t look so. That is a question resonating across the region not just in Israel.”

“They say the draft constitution does not reflect the interests of Egypt’s liberals and other groups, an accusation dismissed by Islamists who insist it is a balanced document.”

A balanced document? Ha! Sure it is. That’s why thousands of protestors are beating down Morsi’s door crying foul while Obama is supporting the Brotherhood with millions of dollars of our money, all while the inner-city gangstas in places like Chicago, LA and Cleveland who know absolutely nothing about politics and everything about black versus white are on board with Obama no matter what he does or says…cuz he’s black and he gives them stuff while he demonizeds the white man.
I’ve also noticed a common theme amongst Muslims and staunch defenders of Islam: they will lie, cheat and steal right in front of you and then tell you they didn’t, right to your face, and then throw blessings to Allah as if he approved of their childish and violent ways.
Obama will do nothing to the Muslim Brotherhood even as they talk trash about Israel just like that Ahmadinijihadist does.
I don’t think I’ll ever understand how any proud American can stand behind Obama and think he’s doing anything close to a good job.
Simply amazing.

What do you say here?

The US supported a uprising against a traditional Middle Eastern despot — one that keeps the peace between the conflicting cultures with an iron hand, and in the process keeps economic development alive.

Within a few months, it became obvious that the new leader was going to be far worse than the deposed. Had this man been allowed to continue, in a year economic development would have ceased, individual rights curtailed, and the butchery of the Coptics would have begun. And within a decade, this would have been a nuclear power.

Now the REAL revolution has begun, with the US on the sidelines. I’m sure our Administration will act surprised when the new leaders are in no hurry to have warm relations.

The whole thing is a shame, with money at its heart. Morsi wouldn’t be in power if it didn’t benefit someone else’s pocket book behind the scenes. Just like Obama, Bush, and yes, most Presidents prior to them made promises and expanded government as well. The donations of everyday citizens fail in comparison to what one billionaire can contribute off the books through super pacs and other third party means. If you think any politician doesn’t have a power interest other than ‘to help the people/preserve liberty’, you are sadly mistaken. The people of Egypt see this, as well as people around the world. Governments are doing their final power grabs before everyone’s currency collapses. Before 60 years ago, most countries had gold backed currency, now almost all rely on private banks to handle/(manipulate) their countries currency. The United States is the same. We gave the Federal Reserve(private/secretive bank) the keys to the treasury and look where that has got us… My father always said, when it comes election time, politicians will say anything possible to get re elected. Sadly, the Federal Reserve is liked by both Republicans and Democrats because it allows them to fund destructive policies of entitlements, welfare, and war. As a conservative, I question all government institutions and procedures, but stay optimistic. I stay optimistic because, I hope something good comes after the collapse and that would be community and a renewed desire for freedom. Governments need to stay within their means and the only way they will learn and correct is through failure. God bless America, the world, and its people, in these trivial days.

Thank you for distinguishing between the US Government and the current US presidential administration. They are NOT the same thing. Promoting radical islam is NOT US policy it is obama’s. He did the same thing in Bengahzi. He will pay for that one. I bet reuters sensors this one-it is too true.

Obama had absolutely NO PROBLEM dumping Mubarak, when the democracy protestors took to the streets, even though Murbarak was a close U.S. ally and had kept the peace with Israel for 30 years. Now that the Muslim Brotherhood is trying to sieze total power and the democracy demonstraters are desperately trying to stop the Islamic Extremist from seizing total power, where is OBAMA? He seems fine with the Morsi and the the Muslim Brotherhood siezing total power, and turning Eygpt into a giant anti-American Israel hating Islamic Republic?

Can’t Morsi take what he dished out to get where he is and was?? What a wimp! Step down dude! That is what you told Marabuk to do, do it yourself now!! Isn’t it just like dictators and rebels and terrorist to act like a “dog” who can’t wag their tail! I mean, if you work on those principles then why can’t you do what you tell other people to do man??? In fact, I wonder if Mr. Obama, or Mr. Zero would do the same thing, you know, he supports all of these rebels and terrostis attacking Constituted legal governments and leaders and then when it comes to his own position in Washington, D.C., I wonder how he would react if the same thing happened there that happened in Egypt today? I also think he is a jerk beause of his latest yelling and screaming at Syria telling them and threatening them with something from the U.S. in terms of force if they DON’t do his bidding! Who does this man think he is really? I mean we sure have a lot of crazy people wanting to be in high offices and all of them act like jerks, have no class, incite chaos and hatred all the time, and that is WHO many of you voted for here in the U.S.! you should be ashamed. We have many statesman and classy folks who can do the job very well, but if you are not like Hollywood and talk “cool” you can’t make it in America. America likes Hollywood and doesn’t really matter if they qualify for the job or not! Nor does it matter about anything really, just so they have a “check” flowing from Washington to their grubby little hands!!

these Egyptians that want democracy and freedom may as well start an organized resistance and focus on over throwing the muslim brotherhood and the military that is supporting Morsi.

Most of the comments on here are pretty good. I am so happy to see the Egyptian people taking a stand. They didn’t want a dictatorship but they didn’t want an even worse dictatorship like the MuslimBrotherhood either. Although, they are ok to have Muslims within their society, they want the Muslims to be ok with the non-muslims also. I agree in regards to the US government behind all of these rouge and shady people that are replacing the so-called dictators in these Middle Eastern countries. I like what Americanmama wrote about how she is glad to see the Egyptians willing to fight for what they believe, while we Americans, have lost the ability to do so. I pray for all of the Middle East, I hated what happened in Iraq, Libya, Syria, and now Egypt. I pray night and day for the people there. God Bless you! I hope your all very successful.

The world has far too many people who think they are “who we’ve been waiting for.” Mursi, Obama, the dictators that proceeded them, the Mullahs in Iran, and so many more, AND NONE, it appears, understood America’s Founding Fathers admonition that the government is NOT the answer, but the problem.
Solutions are found only in a strong and diverse society where charities and churches and civic groups and businesses and schools can thrive WITHOUT the violent force of taxation from the central government.
As government grows bigger (25% bigger just counting the Federal Government over the past 4 years) everything else gets smaller, finds success harder to achieve, and withers.
When government gets out of the way, thousands of independent organizations explore, discover and exploit new paths to freedom and happiness for mankind.
It is the intolerance of those who think they “know better”, using government as a weapon to block other options, that drives people to totalitarianism.
The goal of our President must NOT be to win more power for himself, no matter how smart or well-intentioned he and his followers honestly believe he is. NO ONE MAN… unless he is God… knows better than a community of honest people working together and separately to make their lives and the lives of their families better. Taxing beyond what is strictly necessary steals opportunity from everyone else, making it impossible for them to proceed to create jobs, discover solutions, invent new techniques, give a hand up to the poor, heal a sick child, etc. UNLESS the powers that be in government approve.
Don’t trust what I say.
Don’t read and learn the lessons of history.
Don’t inform yourself about the reasoning of our founding fathers.
Simply watch what happens when you try to do something.
Get off your sofa and try to make something good happen.
The “powers that be” will find a thousand ways to block your initiative. You must be stopped, because every problem you solve independent of the “powers that be” diminishes their power, and THEIR power is the only thing they believe in.
Very, very sad to see what is happening all around the world. Power corrupts, and with a compliant mass media, the corruption is spread very broadly.
Nature heals, however. Once the depression hits, everyone will slow down and have the time to think. How did we fall for this? How did we believe government was OUR slave, when in fact it was telling us what to do at every turn, and demanding we pay for IT! ????
After the storms are over, there will be a rebirth.
