RE: If we only had a decent President now would be the time to support the protesters.
And who, pray tell, in Egypt can we support?
This is the country that OVERWHELMINGLY voted for the Muslim Brotherhood and in a poll, tells Pew that 92% want some for of Sharia Law.
And of that 92%, the majority 60%, want it strictly applied.
The poll, by the Pew Global Attitudes Project, also finds a small decline among Egyptians in favorable views of the United States now just 19 percent while 61 percent of respondents said the billions of dollars the U.S. gives their country in military and economic aid has a mostly negative impact.
The majority (61%) also want to DITCH the peace treaty in place with Israel for over 30 years.
This was May 2012. I don’t see any good options for the USA.
IIRC, the Salafist are battling for control against the MB, we might want to wait and find out more about who these protesters are.
