Re: "Barack Obama's Middle East interventions have replaced stable and
neutral despots in Egypt and Libya with anti-Western despots and chaos."Hear, hear! And, its most recent actions and pronouncements lend
substantial credence to the theory that the Obama regime fully intends exactly
what it has produced.Tempting as it is to throw out some bon mot
about the regime "never missing a chance to miss a chance," it all just
seems too sinister to chalk it up to liberals' typical sophomoric
hubris.Who'da thought we'd ever thank God for Saudi and
Gulf-state wisdom? They've got more skin in the game, of course, but
you'd think American liberals could summon up the sense God gave a goose,
and join them in the near-universal recognition of Muslim Brothers -- Ayman
al-Zawahiri's home chapter of international militant Islamism -- for the
clear and present danger they are to Egypt and the world.Wouldn'cha?

Does any one care to answer the question was there a coup in Egypt?If there was a coup doesn't the law demand that we cut off aid to that
country?Or do ourselves and our government choose to ignore the laws
that we do not like and do not fit into our current thinking?Foreign
Aid could be called "Corporate Welfare" for our defense industries. We
borrow money to give it away to foreign countries so they can buy US Military
equipment. If that is not "Corporate Welfare" what is it?We
should stop foreign aid to both Egypt and Israel. We can not afford it. I do
not want my grand children to pay for it.
