    Then after that we ate and got drunk. I like that part better.
    it's a pretty well documented phenomenon, even with a few collage courses focusing on the subject

    I just find it rather wrong that the same people who vehemently said we had to depose Saddam are upset over Mubarak and Gaddafi, who at best were only slightly less odious than Saddam.

    Democracy in that region was sure to include people that we don't particularly care for. Especially in Egypt where Mubarak had to use all of his power just to repress the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Absolutely. It became more cemented after hearing an extended conversation about the inner character (or from their perspective, lack of it) of those who were Jewish. The irony was that I was doing this for a university education course on multicultural education. It was western indifference to other culture's explicit ethnocentrism. :p

    The Arab Spring was about Democracy...you know that thing Conservatives claim is our mission to bring to the middle east?

    Morsi is Egypts Democratically elected leader. Until that changes (he subverts elections) he has the same legitimacy as any other Democratically elected President despite whatever he says.

    Just because someone says something idiotic does not mean you have to fire them. And just because you didnt fire them doesnt mean you endorse the comments.

    Hes either stupid, incompetent, or ignorant of PR. None of which belong in a position of leadership associated with the current leader of any country. You dont fire him for the statement, you fire him because he was stupid enough to say it and mean it---embarassing his boss. As an aid, your primary job is to make your boss look good. This didnt quite make it.
    Egypt and US political cultures... WAY DIFFERENT.

    Let's be realistic here. Morsi likely holds many of the same ideas, he's just aware enough to not state them publicly.
