    I was going to post a sarcastic picture of a race card, but all the google results were racist. Oh well.

    Before you posted this, you did google to see there weren't any examples of rightists in political romances with tyrants?

    Re: Egypt women protesters forced to take 'virginity tests'

    This story about the Egyptian military humiliating women democracy protesters is in no way a partisan issue and those who would attempt to make it into one demonstrate their indifference to human suffering and disregard for equality and liberty, American foundational values. These provocative opinions are symptomatic of a deep seated desire to invent political advantage in every fanciful way imaginable, no matter how bogus. It is contemptible.

    I never thought I'd ever agree with Chappy, but he's right. The abuse of women in Egypt is not a partisian issue. Shame on those who are trying to make it one.

    It would seem to be a partisan issue for groups like NOW.

    They were happy to support Bill Clinton with his issues but are silent on the treatment of Muslim women.

    There are plenty of valid critiques of certain middle eastern countries and I am a proponent of many of them. That I don't see the world in black and white terms as you do is rather pleasing to me. You are a woefully misguided soul when it comes to politics, I'm afraid, and a tiresome little creature to boot.
    Where are the Good Muslims? Why arn't they actively condemning and making change in Islamic countries!?

    i think there should be lot more Islam people criticizing the extremist that are corrupting their religion.

    My question is, how do you know they aren't?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    It's quite easy to tell when Muslims are protesting.

    What makes you think they are 'corrupting their religion"?

    What you see is what you get. It hasn't changed. It's just that it had one time been easy and safe to ignore.
