Condi's speech in Cairo 2005 is an American Classic! Compare this to zer-O's Cairo speech.
"No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the invisible hand which conducts the affairs of men more than the people of the United States. Every step by which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation seems to have been distinguished by some token of providential agency...We ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of heaven cannot be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which heaven itself has ordained."
Here's another fine one:
"It appears to me
little short of a miracle, that the Delegates from so many different States ... should unite in forming a system of national Government, so little liable to well founded objections."
No, yes & yes. It really is that simple for people not blinded by the state run media and people like you. Im not saying Murbarki is a good thing but the animals in the street remind me of the fall of the Shah. You may be too young to remember, but I do.
I know Mubarak aint no saint, but has anybody heard what the complains of the people are?
He has been in power for 30 years.
Has there been a sudden shift in his policy?
They are going to use the poverty of the people to put themselves into power ... then things will REALLY get BAD for the people.
And if Egypt ends up as another Iran?
The Brotherhood views them as “Useful Idiots.”
So you you are thinking this is more like when communism (Muslim Brotherhood) hijacked the Russian revolution than the American Revolution?
Where are the 350 American Hostages? That is what made Iran so bad. We would have cared less what was going on in Iran had the hostages not been part of it. Same with Egypt. Unless we take casualties or hostages no one really cares. Now of course I have been to Egypt on vacation and it was great but their politics are going to change one way or the other.
Condi?Naaah!!But I’m sure somewhere...flittng about in the usually empty recesses of a liberal mind...its occurred to someone its all BUSH’S FAULT!!!
I doubt this goes they way you’re thinking. It seems to be running a similar course to Lebanon. After Rafiq Hariri’s assassination, the Cedar Revolution attempted to form a government free of outside interference, largely from Syria. Six years later, we have Hezbollah (Iran, by proxy) calling the shots. Might seem OK in the initial phase, but won’t end well if the MB is included. Democratic rule isn’t their main concern.
I think this is exactly like what happened when the Shah of Iran fell.
That’s the first hi-rez, color photo of Teddy Roosevelt I’ve ever seen.

The American Revolution?
I don’t see a “Violent Overthrow” at all. I see protestors marching and expressing the opinions that Condi Rice, in the linked video, said they were entitled to and that the Mubarak regime keeping them from.
Mubarak hasn’t visited D.C. in 5 years. Is that because he’s a closet “mooselimb” conspirator? Or maybe it’s because W saw him as a hindrance to democracy in the region.
I don’t claim they’re Mensa candidates. I just think this is more a case of them having seen what is possible (Iraq) juxtaposed against what they keep getting from Mubarak.
I don’t think this is an Islamist revolution.
Has that happened?
I’m done with you and your name-calling. Go bugger up someone else’s thread.
Sorry! I’ve booked one for 2:30 am Wed if you wish to be pinged.
