What hath ‘Cairo’ wrought?

Is this the democratic Muslim world President Obama called for in his much-publicized Cairo address three years ago?

Chaos there and a US impotent to do much of anything about it?

With the election this past weekend of Mohammed Morsi as president, Cairo became capital to an Egypt under the banner of the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood.

Obama’s 2009 speech, recall, was a mishmash of moral equivalence—apologizing for US intervention in the Middle East; comparing the CIA’s alleged role in the 1953 Iranian coup to the 1979 Iranian Revolution’s hostage-taking and subsequent state-sponsorship of terror.

Most reasonable people were at least skeptical as Obama stretched out a hand to the Muslim world, urging it to reject extremism and move closer to Washington.

Such skepticism has proved warranted.

Egypt’s Arab Spring democracy movement, for better or for worse, led to longtime US ally Hosni Mubarak being nudged aside—and the rise of the Brotherhood.

In Libya, the US “lead from behind” strategy to push out Moammar Khadafy accomplished that goal—but a dangerous leadership vacuum persists and the future is dark.

And in Syria, a full-blown civil war rages.

In a nutshell, the US has far less influence in Egypt today than at any point during the last four decades—a fact of serious consequence strategically and economically. …

“What hath ‘Cairo’ wrought?”

Just what Obama wanted:

More radical muzzie handiwork and marginalized America and Christians.

That’s why his imam Jeremiah Wright said “God **** America!”

Exactly what mubama wanted it to ‘wrought’. Woe to the ‘unbelievers’...which is exactly what he said.

British journalist raped by hundreds of Muslim men near Tahrir Square.
  Hey Barry and Hill- what did you expect when you gave the green light opening the gates of hell?

http://natashajsmith.wordpress.com/2012/06/26/please-god-please-make-it-stop/

“Please God, please make it stop”
This is a shocking, appalling, sickening account by a British journalist, Natasha Smith, who was sexually assaulted the other day by hundreds of men on the Kasr al-Nil bridge in Cairo, near Tahrir Square. Such attacks on women have become a banal occurrence in Egypt. Movies have been made about it. Read Ms Smith’s account and be enraged.  It’s barbarism, pure and simple.

It’s a graphic read, to be sure.

But after Lara Logan and Tahrir Square, I would think it would be avoided like the plague.

The stories of Uday Hussein in Iraq ought to be enough to wake one up.

I’m often astonished at Westerners who head into muslim riot / civil wars and then find out, not surprisingly, that it is barbaric mob mentality. Just as we’ve seen for a decade.

I wouldn’t go into those areas without a well-armed Army platoon and a few Blackhawk helicopters on aerial station.

This will end in war.

The Egyptian Islamists who now rule Egypt (a country of some 90million) have declared that Jerusalem will be their capital.

The only reassuring factor is the fact that Israel has some 200-400 nuclear and thermonuclear weapons - and hopefully, the backbone to use them if they are ganged up upon by their nasty neighbors again.

Islam has to be exterminated.

She didn’t have it coming.

She still comes across as a nutjob.

Thanks Cincinna.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Short answer:

The rise of Obama utopian fascism in the United States
and the rise of Islamofascism in the Middle East.

Incredible suffering of millions of human beings will be the result.

I watched how those mobs operated (protested) and it was just like a repeat of anti-Vietnam protests from the 60's. Burn effigies, flags and stomp on them, throw riot control CS canisters back at the police. The liberal media think these Muslim lunatics are their friends that were led and trained by the socialist liberals from here in the States.

In the immortal words of David Webster yelling at surrendering German forces at the end of WWII (Band of Brothers), “What were you thinking? [Pres. Obama]. Webster then followed up with, “you have horses”! I would convert this for Pres. Obama to: What were you thinking, they are tribal with scimitars!!!

I think Obama chalks this one up in the WIN column. Not as far as he’d like to go, but a win is a win.

Maybe she’ll finally wake up. She was raped by Islam, and she needs to go Jodie Foster on it.

As do we all.

““What hath ‘Cairo’ wrought?”

The same thing Carter did for Iran. Iran today is what Egypt, Libya, Syria and I am betting Iraq are going to be in 20 years.

Good luck fixing that.
