    I think that's how a military coup occurs. It's by force. Anyway, here's the lady that started it all.

    "A coup consists of the infiltration of a small but critical segment of the state apparatus, which is then used to displace the government from its control of the remainder."

    Yes, what with over 20 assassination attempts, 4 that were successful. That's not peaceful. There are extreme-minded people everywhere, and to suggest that it only occurs in one part of the world is absurd. Either way, I was specifically speaking to Erod who posted the false analogy.

    Can you say "Radical Islamic State of Egypt"? I knew you could!
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    No, that's very specific.

    How many resulted in an overthrow of our government? None of them? That's what I thought.

    Don't forget the Carter Doctrine. You don't think the US is going to let some Islamic radicals control the Suez Canal, do you?

    No it's not. Your statement makes the assumption that all Palestinians are hell bent on destroying Israel and killing Jewish people. It's apparent you have no idea what a faulty generalization is.

    Your statement is utterly devoid of common sense. In case you didn't know, the Vice President belongs to the same party as the President. The assassination of a President will not see any changes in party policies. It's obvious you only support revolution if it is imposed by America. Your hypocrisy has already been exposed.
