Bump for obamas explanation of supporting muzziesa in egypt
Sometimes survival is at stake, in which case.....
I think you are not giving enough forethought to Obama.
Obama's basic core value is he believes in shifting power to the "people" and taking it from the establishment. Obama supports Islamic revolutions because they are popular among the citizenry, and he always opposes established leaders. This goes back to his Alinskyite community organizing days.
This naive bias of "the people" over "the powerful" sometimes leads to conundrums and disaster, especially when applied to a third-world model.
Obama wanted the Muslim Brotherhood to rule Egypt because he believed the Muslim Brotherhood was a noble, peaceful, reformed political movement which represented 100% of the Egyptian people. Any Egyptian who thought differently must be suspect. They could not be a legitimate part of "the people"--they must be a beneficiary of Mubarek's government. Likewise, and American who opposed or feared the Muslim Brotherhood must be a xenophobic racist who could not accept the Muslim Brotherhood was actually a reformed political party and not a terrorist organization.
It was exactly this thought which led the political left to support Mao against Chiang Kai-shek in China, and Khomeini against the Shah in Iran.
Remember, Alinsky did not believe in a small "d" democratic system, where the meek gain power though numbers and the ballot box. He believes in replacing the powerful overthrowing the powerful, where the new power simply gains the popular support of the people through organizing and propaganda, but is not responsible to them.
so, basically the newest Egyptian government is executing 528 of the people that Hosni Mubarak got in trouble for fighting?
quote “They were convicted of charges including murdering a policeman and attacks on people and property”
hm... sounds sort of similar to what the Ukrainian protestors did..
These sentences will undoubtedly by delayed/deferred/commuted. There’s just no way to order up the required 38,000+ virgins in time.
Very accurate point.
When their political belief includes enslaving the entire world,and they are actively working towards that goal, I’m fine with their removal from the scene.
