Wow. Reuters going after “Islamist” abusers in Egypt. Someone pinch me. It seems like only months ago that Reuters was supporting the leftist delusion that the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt was an essentially “secular” organization. This is what top Obama administration officials were telling America.

Won’t hold my breath waiting for any apologies. The fundamentalist left NEVER says it’s sorry. They don’t care a bit about naive stuff like truth or honor. They just want to control every scrap of political power by any means necessary.

Mixing religion and state will always be an explosive and unstable cocktail. Tampering with a nation’s constitution like Egypt recently did without a long and grueling debate even more so. Turkey for example, enjoys a peaceful society as they have managed to remain secular and succeeded in separating religion and state. Stay secular, stay stable Egypt.

For Morsi to try to hide behind the thin veil of a democratic government, after making inflammatory moves towards an religious state after being democratically elected, forebode a difficult track for the people of Egypt. All these little emperors are the same the world over: one taste of power and they are hooked like heroin junkies.

How different things would be with a forward thinker like Sadat still in the mix. Mubarak may have been a brute, but I guess that’s what’s needed to keep the anarchists in their place. The common man will be worse off with these thugs.

@ kurmudgeon
Are you saying that Egypt has “anarchists”?
Are you saying that Egyptians “need” a “brute”?
Sadat threw thousands of people who belong to the opposition in jail. He signed a peace treaty without any parliamentary consent. He oppressed Egyptians so horribly they thought they had no choice but to assassinate him.
You call that a “forward thinker”?

Where are you from, sir, if I may ask?

Easy to understand: the MB and the Egyptian army formed an alliance to out Mubarak. Now the MB feels they don’t need the army any more, so the alliance is being broken.

The only person on earth that could try to stop the MB is Mr. Obama. But he will no do anything. The MB had reserved seats on the front row at his historical speech in Cairo… He is actually more aligned to them than to his own party.

If I were someone I would support the Jordanian king at the moment.

@elven_archer, if you recall, it was the MB that killed Sadat, not the Egyptian people. But except that the MB has a strong constituency in the throngs of the illiterate.

It seems to me the “lemmings” would be those who continue to believe ridiculous unfounded theories about our president when faced with the reality that there are no facts to base those theories on.

It is not love, but respect that the office of the President deserves. The lack of respect shown this President is getting very old after 4 years. The conspiracy theorists need to let go and move on and hopefully gain back some of the self-respect they have lost by following such idiotic attempts to discredit our president.

There is no easy fix in the middle east. I think overall the administration has done a good job at walking the tightrope between to little action and too much action.

We (the United States) are not the world’s watch dog, or a global dictatorship. It is refreshing to have a president who understands this and is not quick to launch us into another war.

The middle east must find it’s own path, it may not be what we (Americans) support, but it is also not our country. In some cases we need to just allow other governments to govern without our interference. Action or inaction by the U.S. concerning the M.E. is going to be criticized either way.

That’s rich coming from a guy that probably cheered the movie made about assasinating Bush.

Sorry to break it to you, but repsect is EARNED. So far Obama hasn’t done much to earn my respect. All I see is a guy driven by ideology that demonizes those that don’t share his specific views.

Funny how Hillary was saying just a few years ago that it was PATRIOTIC to disagree with the president. Now they just call you a racist…

bobber1956 felt the need to defend which in my book makes him a lacky or a lemming. My post did not mention a conspiracy. It was an reaction to a posters need to defend.

Really how respectful were you to the last president? How respectful was the Liberal Left to last president? Pratice what you preach.
Most wanted to impeach him and the vice pres for war crimes.

Also notice how my post got taken down??? No conspiracy there eh…

Egypt’s relative freedoms, such as they were under the Mubarak regime, have been snatched away and trampled by the godless savages who will institute the harsh reality that is Sharia law. This “freely elected” government is bent on one thing only – a theist state run strictly for the benefit of those who would institute the new caliphate and enthrone the Mahdi. Crucifying dissenters in front of the presidential palace sends shivers up many spines in this country as we watch what our own “caliph” is doing to the United States of America. Could this be a harbinger of the fate that awaits us? Crosses in use in front of the White House? God help us all.

Read the posts by 1942.bill & MikeyLikesIt for a different perspective.
By the way Obama didn’t support the “Arab Spring” that was going to bring freedom and democracy to Egypt?
