    You said, "Osama been hiding came from which nation?" He was found hiding in Pakistan.

    My bad, Osama bin Hidin as a play on his name, he was a Saudi national.

    and yes we should have been a lot tougher on our 'dear ally' Saudi Arabia but they are the cash cow for big oil so we tread lightly there.

    Egyptians security forces escort an Islamist supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood out of the al-Fatah mosque, after hundreds of Islamist protesters barricaded themselves inside …more the mosque overnight, following a day of fierce street battles that left scores of people dead, near Ramses Square in downtown Cairo, Egypt, Saturday, Aug. 17, 2013. Authorities say police in Cairo are negotiating with people barricaded in a mosque and promising them safe passage if they leave. Muslim Brotherhood supporters of Egypt's ousted Islamist president are vowing to defy a state of emergency with new protests today, adding to the tension

    In the most recent standoff, Egyptian security forces exchanged heavy gunfire Saturday with armed men at top of a minaret of a Cairo mosque. The security forces fired tear gas, stormed the mosque and rounded up hundreds of Islamists supporters of Morsi who had been barricaded inside overnight.

    Egypt's Interior Ministry said in a statement that a total of 1,004 Brotherhood members were detained in raids across the country and that weapons, bombs and ammunition were confiscated with the detainees.

    Among the dead Friday was Ammar Badie, a son of Brotherhood spiritual leader Mohammed Badie, the group's political arm said in a statement.

    Also Saturday, authorities arrested the brother of al-Qaida chief Ayman al-Zawahri, a security official said Saturday. Mohammed al-Zawahri, leader of the ultraconservative Jihadi Salafist group, was detained at a checkpoint in Giza, the city across the Nile from Cairo, the official said.....snip~

    Egypt considers outlawing Muslim Brotherhood
    I cant blame them for taking shelter and fighting back.

    They just went from one dictator to another. The only solution to the ills of the Middle East is to kill off all the Islamofacists. The sooner the, "can't we all just get along?", crowd figures that out, the better off everyone will be.

    If we try to do that and it only breeds a next generation of "Islamofascists", then what?

    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 ?
    You noticed Obama never said a word when the MB was screwing the country over, but now that the MB is geting their asses kicked, he's all miffed.

    We killed off all the facists during WW2. That seemed to have worked purdy good. The Islamofacists aren't going to just go away. Appessement doesn't work.

    I think you are right we should not be selling arms to our friends. But you are wrong about selling arms. We should be selling arms to EVERYBODY that can rub two pennies together. Iran, Russia, North Korea, everybody. We should sell them almost everything we make besides the really nasty stuff like weaponized biologicals, and especially nasty gases, or nukes. Everything else should be fair game to everyone if they can afford it. We should be the worlds arsenal. The Swiss make watches and chocolate, the Germans nice cars, the Chinese cheap plastic junk, the Koreans and Taiwanese electronic stuff, and America makes the best tanks and aircraft carriers and warplanes. If the Russians want aircraft and aircraft carriers from us we should sell them the equipment and vessels. If Johnny Jihad wants his very own F-22 Raptor with optional Premium Audiophile equipment, why should we deny him the very best, hell we ought to throw in a gold plated M-4 carbine in with it as a thank you. If anybody anywhere needs to defend themselves then they should all know to come to Uncle Sam's Munitions and Weapons Warehouse and Manufactory. After all nothing quite says I love you more then the gift of a fine weapon. It really shows you care.

    There absolutely no sarcastic comments in the proceeding section. Really. No really............ Ok maybe.
