Barry Obama: “We’re sending a brigade to help. What’s that? That brigade has been disbanded? They’ve been sent home?

Ah, we are sending you our best wishes.”

Rest assured, I am responding to this crisis quickly. I have ordered yet another $300 Billion cut to the Dept of Defense, furloughs to hundreds of thousands of DoD personnel; and I am pledging Billions more in aid to Sub-Sahara Africa to prevent rolling power blackouts.

The first mistake is thinking that democracy can ever come to bearded-savage countries. Bearded savages kill normal people, other bearded savages, and everything that moves.

The smart members of the “Brotherhood” will take the money and intelligence Obama’s coup gained them and leave and run the country with blackmail and bribes from say... San Francisco.

Tanks? Egypt has tanks? Yeah, lot's of them. Hopefully they're in the hands of the military, not Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood. (Thanks a lot Obama.)

From 2011:

Despite revolution, US set to approve tank sales to Egypt

The Jerusalem Post
7/8/2011
http://www.jpost.com/International/Despite-revolution-US-set-to-approve-tank-sales-to-Egypt

The US signaled last week that it plans to continue business as usual when it comes to arms sales to the Egyptian military, despite the recent revolution in Egypt and continued anti-government demonstrations there.

On Friday, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress of a possible sale of 125 M1A1 Abrams tank to Egypt – the first large arms deal since Hosni Mubarak was ousted from power in February – including associated weapons, equipment, parts, training and logistical support at an estimated cost of just over $1.3 billion.

If approved, the deal would increase the number of Abrams tanks in Egypt from around 1,000 to 1,130.

According to the notification to Congress, Egypt would receive 125 tanks, parts of which would be produced in Egypt, as well as M256 Armament Systems, M2 .50 caliber machine guns, 7.62mm machine guns, spare parts, maintenance, support equipment, personnel training and other related elements of logistics and program support.

Another group of thugs will be in power tomorrow.

Obviously, every third world country is going to be ruled by crooks and thugs (come to think of it, many first world countries are too, they're just more subtle about their abuse of power).

However, some thugs are preferable to others. Would you rather have a Hosni Mubarak-style thug from the Army running things, who, while corrupt and brutal, suppresses Islamist factions like the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Quaeda fronts while protecting secularists and Christians, or a Muslim Brotherhood thug who is even more extreme and fanatical than Morsi?

The goal of US foreign policy shouldn't be supporting "Democracy" or the fantasy of western style representative governments in the Middle East. Our goal should be making sure that secular strongmen open to trade and diplomatic relations with the US rule these nations.

Folks need to get over their fixation on the Muslim Brotherhood being the only nasty players in the area. This bunch of raping “freedom” protesters are the same as the last bunch of raping “freedom” protesters. I also wouldn’t be so sure the military will be this secular force for good, certainly not for very long.

Agreed, which is why any mass democratic movement in Egypt or most other third world countries is bound to fail.

I also wouldn’t be so sure the military will be this secular force for good, certainly not for very long.

The Egyptian military still has many Mubarak loyalists in its ranks. Whatever their faults, they and not the "Arab spring liberation" protesters the best hope for both secularism and stability in Egypt.

I hate to say this because Morsi is a POS...but...the Egyptian people asked for this...as a matter of fact...DEMANDED this man go into power....the REAL question is...will we ever get back to talking about Benghazi, IRS, NSA, Snowden, and Obamacare? Or are the headlines going to go all Egypt 24/7 now?
