Egyptian army to host unity talks as crisis deepens

Interesting how reuters really wants us to think the people firing on these protestors are ‘unknown’!!! You couldn’t highlight this more…

Why did reuters never extend the same courtesy towards the mysterious snipers who first fired on the protestors in Syria???

From the very first shot it was “SYRIAN FORCES FIRE ON PROTESTORS!!!!!”

And before the facts were even known… even after it was shown that many of these snipers were foreign mercenaries and several of them captured by Syrian civillians, reuters still blamed all these shootings on ‘Syrian forces firing on unarmed protestors’.

You just make it up as you go along don’t you reuters!

Or is this just the will of your billionaire dictator baron owners?

Well one thing is certain, because reuters supported this black operation in Syria and spread it’s lies around the globe, it is now MUCH more likely that the same crimes and the same tactics will be used elsewhere.

I think we are seeing the “blowback” of western media propaganda happening right now in Egypt! Who will be next for a fake coup??

And the very last line of the story is where you will find the truth:

“The continuing disruption is also casting doubts on the government’s ability to push through tough economic reforms that form part of a proposed $4.8 billion IMF loan agreement.”

In short – Everything corrupt that is happening now is as a result of US financial backing for the new Egyptian dictator.

He has been given billions from the US IMF, just like famed US backed dictator Mubarak was, now it’s time for him to fulfil the conditions of that loan!

Make Egypt a western friendly dictatorship again!!!

The “economic reforms” are just guarantees that Egypt will provide a safe and stable dictatorship, capable of crushing any dissent, for outside powers to ‘do business with’.

You’re right reuters, the truth belongs at the bottom doesn’t it!

What is so problematic is that the global press had blinders on when the Muslim Brotherhood showed up to run for office following the fall of Mubarak.
This magical thinking has to stop. When will the press wake up and realize that many of the problems of Islamic dominated nations lies in the fundamentals of Islam?
In the last 25 years it has been well demonstrated that fanatical adherents of Islam find all the justification they need in the Koran to carry out atrocities in the name of Allah.
It is time to quit the fantasy that Islam is just another religion. The Muslim Brotherhood will not abide by any norm of conduct observed in other democratically elected governments and is most willing to kill to retain its new found position.

The reason the Army will always be the most important institution in Egypt – even if it never fires a shot in defense of its own territory or against another state – is the fact of the Aswan High Dam.

Over 80 million people, mostly located in the Nile River plain could be washed away if it was ever breached. The entire country could also be disrupted if any local political or military entity tried to block access to traffic. The Mississippi River gets the same attention from the US army. I don’t think there is another river with as strategic importance to this country. The St Lawrence Seaway is important to two countries.

Over 80 million people may not actually want to be one country. How large can a population become before “democracy” or self-rule is really only something that matters in theory? Once they have the army, the country also has to contend with the army’s ambitions.

Loan to Egypt, that’s hilarious. What do you suppose the credit rating is when status = “Muslim Whackos at the Gate.”

When your future development plans as a nation include throwing rocks at women and shooting 14-year-old girls in the face for getting uppity…… that’s when the world quits lending. Screw Egypt. They need to self-police better.

IF the river wasn’t enough – the most important cultural and defining influence in the country – the Islamic religion – isn’t somehow going to demand a significant voice in democratic government?

The only reason democracy and the separation of church and state made it at all in the colonies and early republic of this country was that there was no single religious tradition (except a generic Christianity) in the colonies and they had to adapt to the conditions. And they were not living with hyper compaction that demands immediate answers to all the questions government is expected to address today.

Somehow, I don’t think the Egyptians will ever be able to live without something like a “pharaoh” at the top of the pyramid.

Time to stop kissing Ackmed’s butt. Giving these unstable Islamic countries our precious money only drops our value in market. Mubarek enjoys billions that he stashed for his retirement. Now Mursi wants his share of the pie. Wait, it’s my “entitlement” money – guess I’m S.O.L.

The Egyptian people have made in crystal clear that they do not want to be governed by another tyrannical regime. Religious or otherwise. Credit must be given for them not to rollover and accept the Muslim Brotherhood governances as something that is inevitable.
The Egyptian people just want to be left alone and live in peace with each other, without the constant threat of violence staring down at them.
Unfortunately the Muslim Brotherhood is anything but another in a long list of tyrannical regimes in the Mid East. They had a chance to bring a real and lasting peace to Egypt. But the thirst of power corrupts good intentions.

What was Obama stance on this glorious “Arab Spring”? Not that they could or can do anything about it but this administration didn’t see this coming? I know don’t mention Benghazi either but didn’t the ambassador ask for…like it matters to this administration…

Psalm 2

1 Why do the nations conspire[a]
and the peoples plot in vain?
2 The kings of the earth rise up
and the rulers band together
against the Lord and against his anointed, saying,
3 “Let us break their chains
and throw off their shackles.”

4 The One enthroned in heaven laughs;
the Lord scoffs at them.
5 He rebukes them in his anger
and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,
6 “I have installed my king
on Zion, my holy mountain.”

7 I will proclaim the Lord’s decree:

He said to me, “You are my son;
today I have become your father.
8 Ask me,
and I will make the nations your inheritance,
the ends of the earth your possession.
9 You will break them with a rod of iron[b];
you will dash them to pieces like pottery.”

10 Therefore, you kings, be wise;
be warned, you rulers of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord with fear
and celebrate his rule with trembling.
12 Kiss his son, or he will be angry
and your way will lead to your destruction,
for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
Blessed are all who take refuge in him.

The real danger to America is not gay Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a filthy gay muslim like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of a gay Obama presidency than to restore the necessary,commonsense ,Godliness and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a creature for their president.

The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr.gay Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the gay fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. “The Republic can survive a gay Obama, who is, after all, merely a gay fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

This story is also very illustrative of why we in America need to fight any encroachment on the 2nd Amendment. The muslim brotherhood can only hold onto power if the people are disarmed.
