Phil: What is the president doing using CIA to arm factions in a covert operation to shape the region-- --not for "freedom" but for the Muslim Brotherhood.
Fred: Lest we forget - that's what it's all about...might as well ask, was the US using NATO to destroy Libya...for the same reason?
My take on this "Arab Spring" has been it's the systematic replacement of secular regimes by Islamist ones instigated by the Hussein-Hillary-Huma troika on behalf of Saudi sponsors.
It's not about "freedom"; it's not about "democracy"--
--and "Islam" does not mean "peace"--more accurately, submission.
Hence the continued abuse of the intelligence and military apparatus by a president of suspicious origin is treasonous.
U.S. foreign policy is hijacked in the interest of unnamed foreign interests.
Clinton allowed Iran to arm Bosnians; Hussein channels Saudi aid into the undeclared war.
Saudis put him through Harvard, and he puts on his dog collar and bow-wows.
He is using foreign assets to avoid the requirement of a presidential finding presented to congress.
Washington warned against foreign entanglements--he never imagined foreign presidents.
Knowing that the communist MSM is shielding a communist US dictator, why don't they say that 0b0z0 is expending American blood and treasure on behalf of Saudi Arabia?
After all, the MSM "forgot" about 9/11/01 and accused President Bush of fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq on behalf of Israel!
What they are sweeping under the rug is that when 0b0z0 takes down Egypt, hands it to the Muslim Brotherhood and causes it to disintegrate by facing a famine that leads to the inevitable civil war, 0b0z0 in fact is taking down the whole Middle East.
Unlike Qatar, Saudi Arabia DID NOT WANT the Sunni MB and are refusing to loan them money. Taking the Middle East down will only help Ahmadi-Nejad, al Qaeda and ALL other Islamic terrorists, let alone, very tough decades for America and its allies.
Syria IS next in line.........
PS. At the risk of being smacked down by anyone of the addressees, it's a conversation courtesy. :-)
