"The Brotherhood is tyrannical in its opinions and views..."

"... and I think they will take the side of the Islamist businessmen who fund it and have strict Islamic ideologies."

"Wait, I thought they were misunderstood moderates?"

Why would ANYONE at least the age of 12 and with an IQ to match be surprised? Useful idiots all--some people never learn..

The pro-democracy activists need to be prepared for a real fight. Because they’ll have one, and win it, or they’ll lose.

Anyone see the Islamic Mickey Mouse picture that started such a ruckus?

But by all means continue the illegal US bombing of Libya, because, you know, what could go wrong with creating a power vacuum in another north African Islamic state?

When the people were overthrowing Mubarak I wondered what their next move was going to be.

There was no next move.

Now the bad guys are trying to fill the vacuum. Everyone says that the military has always been the controlling force in Egypt, now we'll see.

It is inevitable in that country that you will have islamic rule or rule by the military. The islamic parties have all the energy and the military has all the power. There is no energy in the pro-democracy movement.

Hopefully the Obama Administration is planning and encouraging the latter. Islamic rule in Egypt would be a massive failure.

I had to go to Memri.org to see it; the mainstream media are too afraid of having their tongues cut out for insulting the religion.

Don't forget, the Muslim Brotherhood is a secular group too. Bambi's people said so.

It's too late for Egypt.

The Egyptians that sought freedom will lose it.

The Coptic Christians that sought to live their lives will lose them.

Everyone paying attention knew the Brotherhood would replace Mubarek and turn Egypt into Gaza.

Yes, that includes Obama and his State-run media tools that told you not to fear the Brotherhood.

Well, at least this is one worry I don't have to fret over anymore. It's turning into shit, but then, again, turning stuff into shit is one thing Obama does consistently.

Sloanasaurus said...

If the Muslim Brotherhood takes over Egypt - the largest and most populus arab country - that will be Obama's signature foreign policy achievement. I would guess that Libya would also quickly fall to the Brotherhood as well since that country is currently in chaos.

The Muslim Brotherhood is the granddaddy of Islamic fundamentalism. They may be a bit more polished than Hamas, but they believe the same things.

Fred4Pres said...

Well they said if you voted for Obama it would mean change. And change is exactly what we are getting.

"Wait, I thought they were misunderstood moderates?"

I think somebody said that about Little Zero.

So how long would it take to raise about 90 divisions?

Egypt is totally bankrupt.

It cannot feed its population.

Tourism is dead.

Who wants to win an election to lead a bankrupt, impoverished nation that has nothing to sell and which no longer can depend upon its rich Uncle Sam for subsidies to stabilize its impossible political economy?

The most fascinating part of the scenario is that even if we wanted to send bucks to keep things quiet, we don't have any to send anyway.

After 1400 years of being the dumb assholes in charge and abusing the Infidels that they stole Egypt from, the Muslims are getting back into Muslim business as usual. Mubarak held them at bay for 40 years, but with Obama's help they are once again in the saddle in a re-conquista mode screaming and waiving their " We Will Kill You For Allah" sword.

The Muslim Brotherhood declared war on us a few months ago.

Obama fucked up, and badly. Mubarak on three occasions attempted to end the practice of female genital mutilation in Egypt. About 85% of Egyptian women have their clits cut out between ages 6 and 12. Sexual pleasure, after all, is for the man, and him alone.

Given that 10 to 15 percent of all Egyptians are Christians, it indicates the barbaric practice is nearly universal within Islam there.

On each occasion Mubarak attempted to end the practice he was blocked by islamists.

In a similar vein, compare these two pictures at the University of Cairo

Egypt is moving in a rather dark direction, and Obama's utter cluelessness is making things significantly worse.

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A MODERATE MUSLIM!!!

If there were, then groups like the Muslim Brotherhood would have disintegrated already. But we all know what happens to 'moderate Muslims'. They either join the jihad or end up as terrorist fodder. Leftards are just as death cultists as Muslims. You have 1 billion death cultists who are being served by their lapdogs on the left, fellow traveling death cultists. A match made in hell.

Use a crowbar and a 20 pound mallet. I find that helps to get past the initial crust of occular blocking crust that socialism tends to grow.
