    Whose standards? You cannot just impose US standards on civilizations that have been around for 5,000 years longer than America. What exactly are "US standards" anyway - republican standards or democrat?

    Yes according to you. And those pesky christians that want to be represented as well in Egypt. Freedom has become a dirty word once again amongst you conservatives.

    So the United States has lost credibility in the Middle East because of the previous administration and that there are people in the South still upset about the civil war?

    Do you have a link for that?

    I think my statement went over your head. Are you arguing that the current Egyptian Government respects its citizens freedom?

    You tell me.
    I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

    As far as credibiilty goes we were continually told "they hate our freedoms". After further investigaion it seems WE hate both ours and their freedoms.

    Obama is being blamed because this happened on his watch. His predecessors don't matter in this context.
    So now I wonder...will Obama get the credit since Mubarak has now stepped down?

    Yes if history ends at this moment in time. But only people who are unfamiliar with the history of revolutions think that the drama is over when the curtain comes down on the first act.

    It doesn't get much more humiliating for America than this blatant ass-kissing.





    You know I said it back when the libs were posting this picture ad nauseum, all this shows is the posters igorance of arab customs. that is like a handshake.... I mean it's not like he bowed to the dood or something.

    I have no doubt some strong back room messages were sent to mubarak after he fooled the US president.... I bet he and his get air lifted out in the next few weeks.


    Obama got fooled (or his intelligence did), but I think he corrected the mistake, and that's what you are seeing here.


    Remember folks this is the suez canal, the world will go to war to keep it open.

    Are you saying that America's governments have always respected its citizens' freedoms?
