The Arab Spring. Sounds so refreshing and cleansing. Obama applauded it and supported it.
All it's doing is turning Egypt, Libya, etc, into southern Afghanistan.
1. I think there was a problem with the way Morsi was removed from office
2. To my knowlege, no one has demonstrated that the MB as an organization, is advocating attacks on whoever opposes their agenda
3. I think that to go persecute everyone in an organization for the activities of a few members is a recipe to increase terrorism
Injustice is the breeding ground for terrorism. What the Egyptian government is doing is way too heavy handed. I find it amazing that Putin is labeled as Hitler by someone like HC, yet el-Sisi has done far worse and we say nothing. In fact we continue to send billions of dollars to Egypt.
One of our biggest problems is that we are way to inconsistent about how we apply standards, especially when it comes to human rights and democracy.
Heya MS. The MB is an Organization and furthermore all know who have been supporting them That would be Qatar. The Syrian MB helped get the Issus with Syria going. The MB has been is into several ME countries as well as even here in the US. We even have some threads here that info on them. Just check search and they should come up.
The Saud and other Sunni are all agreeing that the MB are terrorists. Here is a piece I had up. Although, I do think the children can be saved and the indoctrination removed.
Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain said Wednesday they have recalled their ambassadors from Qatar in the clearest move yet underscoring their apparent displeasure over Doha's support for the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood group in Egypt and elsewhere the region.
The three Gulf Arab states made the announcement in a joint statement on state media, saying Qatar had breached a regional security deal. They said the move was made to protect their security.
Qatar's massive financial and public support for Mubarak's successor, President Mohammed Morsi, who hails from the Brotherhood, stood at odds with UAE and Saudi policies — as did its condemnation of Morsi's ouster last July by the Egyptian military, following days of massive protests in Cairo against the Islamist president.
At home, both the UAE and Saudi Arabia have cracked down on Islamist groups with links to the Brotherhood, which they see as a threat to their ruling systems. They are both staunch supporters of Egypt's new military-backed government, which subsequently launched sweeping crackdowns on Morsi and his Brotherhood supporters.
The agreement called on all GCC members not to interfere, "whether directly or indirectly" in another member nation's internal affairs. It also stipulated that GCC countries would not support organizations or individuals that threaten the security and stability of Arabian Peninsula countries "either through direct security work or by attempting to influence politics.".....snip~

Obama Administration Urges Mubarak to Step Down - US News
not really. he put down an uprising mostly from the muslim brotherhood and obama calls for him to step down.
so yea obama is to blame for all the non-sense going on over there because obama has no clue.
just like he has no clue on how to deal with putin. putin is running all over obama and pretty much ignoring everything he has to say.
weak leadership yields no respect and obama has no respect.
i would say that nuremburg was pretty much a just stand there and you are guilty type court. sure they had some kind of defense but it did them little good. i think almost all were found guilty of something, and most of them were either killed or put in prison for life.
