Looking that way..If I were DoS I’d be closing embassies as fast as we could, it’s obvious the Obambi will do nothing to protect US citizens...

I don’t think people understand. As a leftist, Obama doesn’t respect countries that are allies. Especially Islamic countries. He now respects Egypt more because they don’t support the United States as a true ally.

He sees this as progress.

Mubarak was a rotten SOB but he was OUR SOB. He kept the peace...honored agreements with Israel. The Arab Spring is a disaster. GOP should put out ads showing how Obama’s support resulted in what’s going on now.

It’s funny. We support democracy in the Middle East, cheer when it happens and then stand by as they vote themselves fundamentalist Islamic terrorists into power.

"We support democracy in the Middle East, cheer when it happens and then stand by as they vote themselves fundamentalist Islamic terrorists into power."

That's because in "Middle Eastern" democracy there's only one free election - the one manipulated to put the terrorists in power. After that, no more free elections.

Obama likes the result. If you know liberalism that’s not any exaggeration. Liberals have contempt for our allies.

To Obama, Egypt as an ally was a pathetic kow tow to Israel. Don’t people realize Obama is immersed in an ideology where the “legitimate aspirations of the Palestinians” are paramount. He sees us as having to back Israel to appease the “Jewish Lobby”. He sees what is happening in Egypt as justice.

I guarantee you though he will BS as much as possible, Obama will not say he wants Egypt to return to being the ally it was.

Exactly right. I specifically recall posting at the time that Obama lost Egypt. And so it is.

And yes, Obama might actually see this as progress. Obama’s goal is to diminish America’s standing in the world so losing Egypt as an ally is likely seen as progress by Obama.

Obama continues to destroy everything he touches.

The money is going straight to Egypt's military, who are still our allies and who will hopefully take the country over from the fundamentalist Islamic Brotherhood that Egyptians freely elected.

Obama destroys Jimmy Carter’s one accomplishment: the Camp David Accords.

Carter had tons of faults, but he should be given credit when it’s due. The Camp David Accords was a major accomplishment that stabilized the Middle East for decades.

And now it’s dust.

The Egyptian military are no longer our allies. Morsi knew they weren’t on the MB side and purged a number of them (those who didn’t support the MB) and others retired while they could still get out alive.

They may still be a little less inclined to engage in outright savagery than the rabble, but they’re no longer our friends.

If this is truly the case, then the foreign aid needs to get turned off immediately. I believe after Israel, Egypt was our largest beneficiary of cash. To hell with 'em. If this is what they wanted, we'd better not be paying them for it.

Someone needs to start asking Obama and Congress questions; are we still sending Egypt money and if so, why?

They were only going to be an ally as long as we were providing tech and ground services to pump their oil and make them rich now that they can do it themselves i’d say they haven’t been allies for at last 25 years they just play the game better than most !

It is far worst than that, the “Nation of Islam” is rising. Egypt and Iran are simply parts (and a small parts) of the nation of Islam. The only thing yet to be worked out is the role of the House of Saud. Once the Suadis fall to the new nation of Islam the wars will begin in earnest. It will be the middle ages all over again only this time with nukes.

“He’s so stupid he didn’t even know he was stupid by saying it out loud. He honestly didn’t understand the implications of what he was saying.”

Hussein’s been so positively reinforced for so long that he and his fawning media no longer care what he says.

And the wookie gets to say “Barack doesn’t CARE about low polls” as a positive.

He needs to give a major foreign policy speech and lay out why Obama’s naive policies have failed Israel and the Middle East.

If Romney shows real leadership in the face of the onslaught of media attacks and Obama/Clinton’s appeasement efforts, he wing swing many undecideds towards him, imho.
