    I think you misunderstood the post, she is not saying we did.

    It takes decades to put in place what we have, and there's still only about a 10 percent chance it will take root. (in that part of the world, probably 1 percent or less of a chance)
    What right do we have to use our military might to force a country to our way of government in the first place?

    Yes how lucky they are that we killed tens of thousands of innocent civilians, displaced millions from their country, wrecked their infrastructure, and militarily took over control of their property.

    The United States is so wonderful!

    No, and we should never have supported Mubarak in the first place. Just as we should never have supported Saddam. Supporting ruthless dictators has a way of coming back to bite you.

    With the exception of humanitarian aid in some cases, no one until we get our own house in order. Have you noticed the size of our national debt?

    That's why we shouldn't be supporting these clowns, either.

    That's the same justification used by terrorists when they kill people for their beliefs.

    I think we have the potential to be better than the terrorists.
