It's not enough to make the proper noises that Mubarak should resign, but we need to stop putting weapons in the hands of dictators that are then used to oppress their people. Our government should stop facilitating sales of these weaspons into the hands of dictators and thugs in the 3rd world.
THAT SHOULD NOT BE OUR FOREIGN POLICY M.O.
It's time for our foreign policy emphasis to change. Propping up a thug with our funds for 30 years, and allowing him to purchase weapons and tear gas so that he can keep the masses quelled and under his thumb is essentially un-American.
That's very ****ing relevant to this particular thread. Mubarack would never have stayed in power without U.S. support, funds, and weapons.
