    It's funny how some people think it's great to spend a trillion dollars and thousands of lives to remove one corrupt dictator but it's horrible when it doesn't cost us a dime and any lives to remove another.
    Damn, the fallacies keep on coming.

    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.

    Except it's not a fact... It is not a fact that the new government will post a threat to America.

    The new government will be better than the previous one by a longshot. The potential threat to America is currently nonexistent. The surpression of the Egyptian people for the last thirty years is not.

    More like, muddy the water.

    The, "fear", and the, "you must be a Mubarack supporter", arguments are no different than the, "yooz-a-racist", argument whenever someone disagrees with Obama.

    Identify the fallacy. What is it called?

    Spewing hyperbole and rhetoric like you constantly do gets you nowhere.

    Neither does making false accusations.

    I don't recall any Conservative in this thread--or any other--saying that Mubarack should stay in power.

    Who wins elections?

    The most organized group.

    What group is most organized and able to get behind a single candidate?

    Muslim Brotherhood.

    How likely is it that they will be able to win?

    Very likely.

    Ergo, the Islamic State of Egypt.

    Think I'm wrong, let's see in one year. Probably be a lot shorter then that. If I'm wrong, aces for Egypt, and the world. I seriously doubt I'm wrong.
    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.
