Exactly What I Have Been Thinking For The Last 6 Days

We can’t get caught up in the excitement of seeing people over there demanding ‘freedom’, when we know who/what is waiting like a vulture to inflict Sharia on them once in power. This …

It is dangerously very close to this Iran …

Thad McCotter: “This is not a nostalgic ‘anti-colonial uprising’ from within”

The Egyptian demonstrations are not the equivalent of Iran’s 2009 Green Revolution. The Egyptian demonstrations are the reprise of Iran’s 1979 radical revolution.

Thus, America must stand with her ally Egypt to preserve an imperfect government capable of reform; and prevent a tyrannical government capable of harm …

Though many will be tempted to superficially interpret the Egyptian demonstrations as an uprising for populist democracy, they must recall how such similar initial views of the 1979 Iranian Revolution were belied by the mullahs’ radical jackbooted murderers, who remain bent upon grasping regional hegemony and nuclear weaponry …

This is not a nostalgic ‘anti-colonial uprising’ from within, of all places, the land of Nassar. Right now, freedom’s radicalized enemies are subverting Egypt and our other allies.

Amb. John Bolton: Is Democracy Coming to Egypt at Last?

“I don’t think we have evidence yet that these demonstrations are necessarily about democracy. You know the old saying, “one person, one vote, one time.” The Muslim Brotherhood doesn’t care about democracy, if they get into power you’re not going to have free and fair elections either.

And I think there is substantial reason, for example, to worry the minority Coptic Christian population, about 10% of the population will be very worried if the Muslim Brotherhood came to power.

Let’s be clear what the stakes are for the United States. We have an authoritarian regime in power that has been our ally. We don’t know at this point what the real alternatives are.”

The people of Egypt could very well be on the verge of trading one tyrant for another. And therein is the plan, I fear

Is there any doubt that Iran, the Black Scorpion, has finally concluded that Obama is a one-term president? The Mullahs and Ahmadinejad must believe that their unique historical opportunity to extend the New Islamic Caliphate from Morocco to Turkey including Saudi Arabia, without the intervention of the US Sixth Fleet, ends in less than 650 days.

WikiLeaks Julian Assange: “I’ll reveal info that will spark Arab world coups”

I want to believe it’s fueled by a hunger for true democracy and freedom, but I am forced by the reality to be an agnostic

Obama’s “astroturf” activist in the Egyptian uprising?

Update: H/T Mr. Mojito in comments … From one of today’s Egypt support rallies here in the States. See anything— anyone familiar?

  1. There will always be the usual suspects turning up who will take advantage of unrest to try to install the next Muslim dictator. But on Fox News Sunday there seemed to be hope that this could turn out to be a moderate change. I am skeptical, but want to believe Kristol was right because the alternative is too scary.
    It worries me because Obama, who ignored the green revolutionaries in Iraq and who picked the wrong side in Honduras and anywhere else he could, suddenly is talking support of moderate change in Egypt and telling Mubarek to make it start, in other words to leave. Is this another Shah, get out, we must pave the way for the next Ayatollah? I mean it worries me that with Obama’s record so far, whatever side he is on is the one I am not on.
    I don’t know about the rest of you, but I fear a spread of radical Islam in the works.

  2. This is definitely not a job for Obama. It’s a terrible time to have someone like him in the White House (not that there would ever be a good time). Every day I find it more incredible and more disturbing that so many American voters were so inexcusably irresponsible. It’s the equivalent of needing risky, delicate, technically difficult surgery and putting yourself in the hands of somebody with virtually no experience who’s never done that surgery before.

  3. Mark my words. If the Muslim Brotherhood takes over Egypt this will be the foundation for WWIII.
    As said on another post, do not forget the importance of the Suez Canal as well as the fact that the Muslim hatred of Israel will now go unchecked.

  4. asombra,
    How right you are. I am every day angrier and angrier at my liberal friends. They still don’t get it.

  5. “The Egyptian demonstrations are the reprise of Iran’s 1979 radical revolution.

    Thus, America must stand with her ally Egypt to preserve an imperfect government capable of reform…”

    Bullshit. Total, fear-mongering, occidentalist bullshit.
