    Sudden Split Recasts U.S. Foreign Policy


    I absolutely LOVE the position and diplomacy that Obama is taking on Egypt. GIVE MUBARAK HELL, OBAMA!!!!


    After days of delicate public and private diplomacy, the United States openly broke with its most stalwart ally in the Arab world on Wednesday, as the Obama administration strongly condemned violence by allies of President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt against protesters and called on him to speed up his exit from power.

    Egypt’s government hit back swiftly. The Foreign Ministry released a defiant statement saying the calls from “foreign parties” had been “rejected and aimed to incite the internal situation in Egypt.” And Egyptian officials reached out to reporters to make clear how angry they were at their onetime friend.

    Separately, in an interview, a senior Egyptian government official took aim at President Obama’s call on Tuesday night for a political transition to begin “now” — a call that infuriated Cairo.

    But the White House was not backing down. “I want to be clear,” said Robert Gibbs, the press secretary. “ ‘Now’ started yesterday.

    There were the reasons for going in. Then there were the objectives we intended to achieve. The reasons for going in were multifold (WMD, Terrorists, violated UN Resolutions, Humanitarian Intervention). The objective was always to free Iraqis and bring Democracy to Iraq that would be a model for the rest of the Middle East. This was said repeatedly by the representatives of the Bush administration. Were you not listening?

    I cannot believe that anyone on earth believes that Bush gave a rat's arse about the Iraqi people and their freedom. I'm sorry, I can only laugh, or bang my head against my keyboard, no I guess I'll just laugh, not worth hurting my beautiful head over such bovine manure.

    Perhaps - but the post I was replying to said getting rid of Saddam was not a reason for the war as he remembered, thus I was refreshing his/her memory.

    I think we can expect conservative skeptics on Fox News to change some of their tune now. Because of the treatment of journalists in Egypt by the mob, we can be assured that journalists of any ideological stripe will stick to their tribe and demand that justice be delivered to their sacred job.

    Mira, it was the whole point in doing it. We would not have bothered otherwise. It was the core strategy.
