    Normally, the revelation that America started all the color revolutions and the Arab Spring would trigger Congressional Investigations and hearings for impeachment.

    Now that the Corporations have such a strangle hold on government these days, I don't know.

    The relationship between the American oil people and the Saudis is very interesting..

    They learned English from slow talking guys from Texas, Oklahoma, Alabama .... and that's sort of the way they learned to relate to Westerners.

    Wait a second. A political party wants to have power and thinks that their opposition isn't doing a good job?

    I've seen this before. Where was that again? Wasn't democracy in the region one of the foreign policy goals of the right back in 2003? I guess I'm wrong. Democracy = bad, my mistake.

    Re: Egypt's Brotherhood says it should govern

    Is there a political party that DOESN'T want to govern?
    Don't work out, work in.

    Regardless of what you think of them, would you rather Mubarak was still in power? Would you want the US military to go in and make Egypt's politics something we like? I don't know what another solution would be...

    I'm personally in favor of letting Egypt decide what their democracy looks like. It's their country and their democracy.

    BTW, do you know that probably the single biggest contributor to terrorism is lack of a voice in the political system? Leaving violence as the only option to effect political change. I'm guessing not. No matter what, the Muslim Brotherhood is going to be an influential force in Egypt. So do they participate within the system, or outside of it?

    I didn't say that did I? Although, Mubarak was what held Egyptian peace with Israel for decades. The 'Brotherhood' is just another band of thugs that seeks destruction of Israel. So, great, what a win.


    Would you want the US military to go in and make Egypt's politics something we like?

    Didn't say that either.

    So strawman fallacies are all you have? Ok. Thanks.

    Not really, but I do know that the Brotherhood is not the solution. That isn't democracy, it is enslavment of another kind, and not for the better of the Egyptian people....Or LaHood's son.

    Is that sarcasm? Israel is the most important country on earth. More important than ours.
