Barack Obama’s incompetence is destroying another US allegiance.

Squeezing a few precious moments from his golf vacation, Barack Obama informed us that he will not choose sides in Egypt


CHILMARK, Mass. (CBSDC/AP) — President Barack Obama is calling for an end to the violence in Egypt a day after 525 people were killed in protests across the country.

Speaking from Martha’s Vineyard Thursday, the president strongly condemned security forces going after supporters of ousted Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi.

“America cannot determine the future of Egypt, that’s a task for the Egyptian people,” Obama said. “We don’t take sides.”

We don’t take sides when Christians are persecuted.​
Obama also decided to cancel a joint military exercise with Egypt


Washington (CNN) — President Barack Obama announced Thursday that the United States has canceled joint military training exercises with the Egyptian military and alluded to the fact that his administration could take further steps to deal with the violence in Egypt.

“Going forward, I’ve asked my national security team to assess the implications of the actions taken by the interim government and further steps we may take as necessary with respect to the U.S.-Egyptian relationship,” Obama said.

In a statement from his vacation home on Martha’s Vineyard, the president, however, refrained from calling the government overthrow a coup, which would have implications for the military and humanitarian aid the United States sends to Egypt.

“The United States strongly condemns the steps that have been taken by Egypt interim government and security forces,” Obama said about this week’s Egyptian military crackdown against protests in Cairo. “We deplore violence against civilians.”​

Obama and his LSM are purposely avoiding addressing the persecution of Christians in Egypt and throughout the M.E. by Muslims.

Obama doesn't take sides, eh? What was Libya again?

Other than that asinine statement, I agree. Egypt is going through some powerful stuff, and the US would be accomplishing nothing by getting directly involved.

As for your last statement about Egyptian Christians; why does that have anything to do with Obama's decision here? Here is the most powerful country in Africa and the Middle East going through so frightening civil strife that could break into a civil war and you are only worried about the Christians in the country? 84 million people live in Egypt, their livelihoods are all at risk, and you worry only for the Christians? Some nice humanity you have there.

Don't look at me for that. I was against Obama's favoritism in Libya and his touting the Arab Spring. It's falling around his shoulders. He can't blame anyone but himself.
