    Re: Riots erupt in Egypt as protesters demand end to Mubarak regime

    The Egyptian protesters are furious with the United States for not standing with them.
    Why would they be furious if they didn’t expect Berry to help them?? As you admit, they do expect Berry to help and they are wondering why he hasn’t yet.

    He will but he is such a coward that it will take some time. Once the Islamic Brotherhood is firmly in control Berry will send someone to talk to them and offer aid.

    We already see that the military is uncertain which side they want to be on. It makes sense for the military to hold back because once they pick a side things will get worse or put the MB in charge.

    I don't think Berry's going to help the protestors and I can't blame him. He already looks stupid enough, and doesn't want to look even more stupider for helping a terrorist org take control of the Egyptian government.

    Re: Riots erupt in Egypt as protesters demand end to Mubarak regime

    I would love to see a system of self governance in Egypt but the Muslim Brotherhood is very strong and will do what ever it takes to seize power.

    Most important, of course, is that the people get universal internet access. And if Egypt gets it why not all of America?

    Apdst – Berry won’t go in until the MB has the country by the throat and he may be super stupid but he a fellow brother so he will have to help if he wants to achieve collective salvation.

    The US need not fear the Muslim Brotherhood...certainly not to the point where we need to support a dictator to prevent it from gaining power. Granted, the Muslim Brotherhood probably will not be as compliant with US interests as Mubarak has been...but there's no reason to assume it's going to be a radicalized organization seeking war with Israel.

    Anytime an Islamist party, that supports anti-American terrorism, takes control of a government, the US should be concerned.

    We have Iran, Syria supporting terrorists. Hamas and Hezbollah are in Gaza and Lebanon. Now, it appears that the Muslim Brotherhood and there's no telling who those clowns are, that are starting trouble in Jordon.

    Yeah, this should be of very high concern.

    Re: Riots erupt in Egypt as protesters demand end to Mubarak regime

    I’m a little confused by the liberals who can’t accept that Berry might be a muslim. Do they not like muslims? Surely our liberal horde can’t have enough hate in their hearts to hate conservatives, christians, Jews and muslims too.

    but there's no reason to assume it's going to be a radicalized organization seeking war with Israel.
    So, we should discount the years of actions and words from the MB as it relates to Israel???

    Well, I may have miscalled this one. Maybe. We'll see.

    The Islamic Brotherhood does not support "anti-American terrorism." They renounced violence long ago and have mostly kept that promise. Furthermore, Islamist does not necessarily mean radical. There have been moderate Islamist parties in control of Iraq and Turkey in recent years. Neither of them are particularly close to the United States, but they aren't firebreathing extremists either. If that's who the people want to elect, so be it.

    Well, first of all, Syria is not an Islamist regime...they're just opportunistic. And why do you assume that people who are protesting for democratic freedoms are "clowns starting trouble"?
