    I didn't say I approved of that either.....
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Agreed. I don't know when the U.S. will learn that the quick "friends" you make now could be our enemies in a decade or sooner. We shouldn't be selling arms or weapons to these places.

    Really ??

    I suppose I should expect a response like that from you.

    In the interest of ourf National Security and the Security of our long time ally, Israel AND in the interest of the ENTIRE AREA !!!! .....there should be some Consideration to the arbitrary removal of a dictator who has for decades kept his region in a relative state of peace.

    Obama and his thug ilk he drug in with him are either so incompetent when it comes to Foreign Policy they didn't realize the stabilizing effect that Mubarek had on his Country and on the Region, OR they want as many radical Islamic theocracies surrounding Israel as possible.

    I vote for a little bit of BOTH.

    And your statment ? What is it with you Libs and your arbitrary Comparisons on the Fly.

    Are you guys just too lazy to offer up any specific consideration ?

    The key word in your whole little rant is "DICTATOR". I thought you were for peace and freedom? Oh wait, you're not. Your fascist self is evident of that.

    How does the overthrowing of an octogenarian dictator become Obama's fault? ODS is just as bad, if not worse than, BDS ever was.

    SEE ??!!

    Unreal. Your kneejerk response to the keyword " DICTATOR " is noted.

    Your'e being NAIVE.....and the " Fascist" comment is just hillarious. It's Internet Debate 101. You'll be calling me a NAZI in no time.

    This Nations ME priority SHOULD be the Safety of our Nation and the Safety of Israel. Above all and if that means supporting a " DICTATOR" who's been a Ally to the US and who also happens to keep the Islamo-Nuts in check FOR YEARS then so be it.

    It would make sense that a hard left Jr Senator with ZERO experience would come in with your ideology in mind. A simplistic view of the world and of the ME.

    Obama's ME policy is this broad brush approach without any consideration to the consequences, and he actually tried to take credit for it...LOL !!

    Remember the US sychophant reporters from CNN in Tahrir Square trying to get "Thank You Obama" sound bites from the protestors ?? Lol..

    What a dolt. Presidents before him knew the value of assistance to leaders and dictators IF it kept the area stable and Mubarek did just that.

    The current unrest speaks for itself so I really don't have to argue the point. Notice the whole " Arab Spring thanks to Obama's Foriegn Policy Genius " False Narrative is long gone ?

    Lol...." fascist"

    US foreign policy assistance has kept Mubarek in place for years and for Good reason.

    Your'e not seriously going to play the " Coincidence " angle are you ?

    The current unrest and destabilizztion of the entire region with the rise of fundamental islamic groups is proof enough.

    C'mon, Mubarek or the Muslim Brotherhood. Have you read their charter ? Their stance on Israel ?

    Doesn't the latter undermine the former?

    Destabilizing the region was why we went into Iraq.

    Mubarak was going to die fairly soon. Dictatorships end with the death of the dictator. What do you think would have happened when he died?

    Re: State of Emergancy declared in Egypt!

    It is a bit knee jerk to claim prior to the Arab Spring terrorists were held in check when the Gaza crowd got their weapons through very well known smuggler tunnels from Egypt.

    It would appear the people of Egypt are throwing out the Muslim Brotherhood for overstepping the boundaries of democracy. I'd say that's a good thang.

    Egypt was being bribed big time to keep their standing army at peace but it never the less turned a blind eye to terrorists smuggling arms, and money into Gaza.

    We tried the support your local dictator thing with Iran, I do believe most open minded folks say our refusal to distance ourselves from the vicious crackdown of the secret police in Iran before the fall of the Shah got a radical theocracy installed.

    It does cause me pause to see those who would speak for a dictator in Egypt as someone who prevented religious fanatics totally ignore the dictator who supports and how's nation is the leading exporter of radical religious terrorists from the region.

    Most of the 9-11 hijackers came form which ME country?
    Wahhabi home is in which country?
    Osama been hiding came from which nation?
