No love lost
Sir-- I guess Hillary's not any more popular in Egypt than she is here. Maybe we should mind our own business.
Sir-- Why are we giving money to countries like Egypt? Seems like all we do is funnel money into these places and they don't even say "thank you" but instead hate and threaten us. I'm tired of seeing taxpayer money wasted. We're broke as it is without giving more away to people who are not US citizens, don't like us and who would just as soon see us all dead. If you can throw food away, it's time to stop giving you any of ours.
Sir-- I take it you're not happy with the present administration. Well neither are we.
Shoes and tomatoes
Sir-- Bush gets shoes thrown at him in Iraq and Clinton gets tomatoes in Cairo. I get the feeling you're not earning the hearts and minds in the Muslim world.
Not your business
Sir-- Well, that should pretty much settle what Egypt thinks of the USA. I imagine that is also the sentiment from the rest of the Middle East, too. If you want to measure what a country thinks of the US, you don't look at the leadership, you look at the streets. Is anyone surprised by this? Ron Paul is spot on when he says this is what happens when the US goes out and sticks its nose where it doesn't belong.
Sir-- It was not clear who the protesters were or what political affiliations they had. To me it was very clear; the protesters were anti-Islamists who oppose Obama's policy of supporting the Islamists.
Sir-- Your idea of the role of the military is directly opposite to that of the military of all Western democracies. The elected representatives of a country controls the military, not the other way round. You confuse the military with the police.
Sir-- The Egyptian military is the real power of Egypt and anyone who knows anything about this country knows this fact. If the military gets tired of this president they'll oust him so fast your head will spin.
Sir-- Why would the US urge Egypt's military to transition to civilian rule when the civilian rulers want an oppressive Islamist regime? The Islamic Brotherhood does not promote a single democratic ideal other than getting elected. Then they can pretend they are implementing the will of the people.
Sir-- We keep pouring billions of dollars into these countries' coffers and can't even take care of our own county's social and economic problems? I guess I just don't see the "bigger picture".
Sir-- Can Egypt create a modern, secular 21st century economy that can bring prosperity, jobs and a secure and peaceful future to the millions of Egyptian living hand to mouth?
Sir-- Mubarak is reaping what he sowed -- deep despair. He was a brutal corrupt dictator. He neglected his people and looted the country. But as bad as we hate to say it, maybe this is the best thing for him, rather than to fall into the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood, who would like nothing better than to execute him.
Sir-- The Muslim Brotherhood will control Egypt after the elections. This is the first step to uniting the Middle East and World War III.
