PressTV - 2,200 killed in security forces' crackdown on Cairo sit-ins: Muslim Brotherhood
Photos from Egypt: Death, chaos and grief grip Cairo

Hundreds of Israelis stranded in Sinai - Israel News, Ynetnews

There is definitely no intention for democracy by this regime.
Do you people think Morsi should be released to save Egypt??

Rumors says that Israel is going against Egypt in case the situation collapse.
But the Syria seems a hot war zone too.
Obama seems to be still in dilemma regarding the Syria and the Egypt.

Releasing Morsi will not save Egypt - Morsi is an Islamist version of Mubarak and unless you want Egypt to be a larger version of Iran, he should never be allowed back.

The US propping up Mubarak for decades and then not reacting in a timely way when Egyptian youth went to the streets is what has caused so much turmoil there.

Decades of playing nice with some of the most despicable actors in the world is coming back to haunt the west.

Very true.
Realpolitik comes home to roost.
I don't have any good solutions....just stand back and stay out of the line of fire, I guess.
Too bad for the innocent bystanders.

Obama will come out with a strong position on this after a clear winner has been declared.

I wonder if Mubarek would consider another go...

Well I think the WH never dreamed that the Arab Spring would bring more radical Muslims to power. Not really that much different than what happened in Iran. first rule of revolution is to get rid of the revolutionaries.

And the Arab Spring that Obama supported continues.

Everyone supported the Arab Spring in theory.
Should Obama have propped up Mubarak?
What do you think that would have achieved?
You make the call President Apache.....what would you do?

As for some other comments on DP, thank you for not playing politics. In all sincerity, it is too bad McCain and Graham were not able to broker a peace. They were more pro-Arab spring than Obama. Republicans in the late 1940's were famous for saying that politics ended at our shoreline. Today, not so much.

Heya, Linc.
How goes it in the mighty Midwest?
As to the middle-east, no one's able to broker any sort of peace.
Until people get sick of their loved ones bleeding and dying, no peace will come.

Why on earth should Obama do anything about Syria and Egypt other than what he's already done, which is criticize the violence and ask for peace? It galls me that any time anything happens anywhere on the planet, the first thing the world says is, "Why isn't President (fill in the blank) of the USA doing anything about this?"

I sure in hell didn't support the Arab Spring.

I learned decades ago that western form of democracy doesn't work in the Muslim Middle East.

There were many who knew the only people who would benefit from the Arab Spring was either the Muslim Brotherhood or Al Qaeda or other radical Islamist extremest who are not in the best interest for the western world.

But the Middle East during the Obama administration became a complete basket case a year before the Arab Spring.

Obama is an incompetent statesman who has surrounded himself with second rate people. He had an incompetent Secretary of State and he may have had a competent Director at the helm of the CIA but he was a yes man.

A competent President would have never thrown President Mubarak, a long time ally who protected Israels southern flank under the bus.

A competent President would have looked at the only two options America and the western world had.

1.) In early 2011 the administration should have approached President Mubarak and convinced him that times have changed, it's time to step down and turn the power over too someone we can deal with and would be in the best interest of Egypt, America, the western world and Israel.

2.) Have the CIA overthrow the Mubarak government and replace it with a government that would be in the best interest of America and the western world.

All Obama accomplished was to show America's allies that America can't be trusted that they could be next to be thrown under the bus.

Obama was not the instigator in Libya. France, Spain and UK led the charge, and asked the USA, as an ally, to support them. Since they had supported us previously in unpopular military actions overseas, Obama wisely agreed. That is what was different about Libya.

So obama went into Libya because other countries wanted him to huh, that's a good reason.:roll: Hopefully other countries won't tell him to go into Egypt anytime soon. Funny how nothing obama does is his fault or his decision, he's always a hapless victim.
