Monica, there is no reason to be optimistic from an ethnocentric Western viewpoint as your article suggests. The balance of power in the ME and in North-Africa alike isn't going to change the way '89 changed Europe. Islam is in resurgence not in retreat. There is no reason for celebration of a newly born era of freedom. We must never forget what happened in Iran after the revolt against the Shah.

"Which way will these revolts go?" (--Monica)

-------

Of course the mooslim extremists will co-opt these revolts and cease power after it's all said and done.

Moreover, the not so secret little secret is: The Mooslim World doesn't want anything to do with crass American consumerism or degenerate secular-liberalism; even if it's dressed up and disguised as 'freedom and democracy'.

Mubarak may not be a nice guy, but like Saddam and others we have supported he is at least Western oriented and tolerant of Israel. Like the Tea Party the Egyptian protesters are driven by religious extremists. If they win it will mean a move to the far right with suppression of women's rights, persecution of homosexuals, Jews, Christians and any other minorities and fanatical desire to destroy the state of Israel.

More Obozo hypocrisy:

Democrapheads have aggressively pushed a very controversial bill which would hand President Obozo power over privately owned computer systems during a "national cyberemergency" - in effect, an Internet Kill Switch, and today the Obozo Administration, via Robert Gibbs, released a Twitter statement saying that the government of Egypt needs to turn the Egyptian Internet back on (having used the Egyptian version of the "Kill Switch" Obozo wants to have).

I oppose the idea of all Internet Kill Switches because eventually they will be mis-used, but the hypocrisy is incredibly thick. Only a Liberal Progressive like Obozo could push hard for an internet Kill Switch, and simultaneously criticize Eqypt for using one.

Infidels will boogie in their setting sun.

This is a huge problem with GOP insiderists. They sit in their climatized think tanks and get their information from consultants and cable TV.

Soggy, MJ, it's not that threatening if we are willing to REMOVE moslems who in any way support the MB and willing to use military force if they harm any of our interests.

This willingness is of course not being proclaimed by the Moonbat-in-Chief.

He's more concerned with the really important stuff like NASA outreach for moslem fell-good and repeal of DADT.

Egypt protests: America's secret backing for rebel leaders behind uprising

The American government secretly backed leading figures behind the Egyptian uprising who have been planning “regime change” for the past three years, The Daily Telegraph has learned.

Hmmm.....If this is true, and Obama has been in office TWO years, and the plan has been ongoing for at least THREE years, then if my math is correct, that would mean what is going on today in Egypt is due to what was hatched during the BUSH ADMINISTRATION!

Hear that?!? The Bush Administration, Monica!

Yup. Bush is a liberal.

You could spell it as Republican toleration for their obvious Obamanation---a tolerance which is never reciprocated.

Ummah,

I indirectly hold the Bush Administration responsable for every anti-American act Obama commits. I say that because if Bush acted as a conservative when he was in power, Obama would not be president today.

Bush managed to deflate all the enthusiasm and confidence most people had for the conservative movement -- especially as it relates to the Republican Party. I can't beleive ANYONE could still refer to him as a conservative! Even his most loyal and committed booster, "The Golfer", has demonstrated a noticeable scarcity of favorable things to say about him these days.

Yes, but even without "The Golfer" and "The Wallbanger" and "Teddy's Lover", Georgie will still have Poppy, Mommy and Monica.

The Real Truth About Sarah Palin -- Ouch !

Very interesting facts on two very different ladies.
Sarah Palin
Whether your a Democrat, Independent, or Republican....the second half of this email should make all of us very sick,
send this on .....especially the second half......
READ TO THE VERY END! VERY ENLIGHTENING!!! AND VERY DISTURBING!!!
By Dewie Whetsell, Alaskan Fisherman.
As posted in comments on Greta's article referencing the MOVEON ad about Sarah Palin.
The last 45 of my 66 years I've spent in a commercial fishing town in Alaska . I understand Alaska politics but never understood national politics well until this last year. Here's the breaking point: Neither side of the Palin controversy gets it. It's not about persona, style, rhetoric, it's about doing things. Even Palin supporters never mention the things that I'm about to mention here.
1. Democrats forget when Palin was the Darling of the Democrats, because as soon as Palin took the Governor's office away from a fellow Republican and tough SOB, Frank Murkowski, she tore into the Republican's "Corrupt Bastards Club" (CBC) and sent them packing. Many of them are now residing in State housing and wearing orange jump suits The Democrats reacted by skipping around the yard, throwing confetti and singing, "la la la la" (well, you know how they are). Name another governor in this country that has ever done anything similar.
2. Now with the CBC gone, there were fewer Alaskan politicians to protect the huge, giant oil companies here. So she constructed and enacted a new system of splitting the oil profits called "ACES." Exxon (the biggest corporation in the world) protested and Sarah told them, "don't let the door hit you in the stern on your way out." They stayed, and Alaska residents went from being merely wealthy to being filthy rich. Of course, the other huge international oil companies meekly fell in line. Again, give me the name of any other governor in the country that has done anything similar.
3. The other thing she did when she walked into the governor's office is she got the list of State requests for federal funding for projects, known as "pork." She went through the list, took 85% of them and placed them in the "when-hell-freezes-over" stack. She let locals know that if we need something built, we'll pay for it ourselves. Maybe she figured she could use the money she got from selling the previous governor's jet because it was extravagant. Maybe she could use the money she saved by dismissing the governor's cook (remarking that she could cook for her own family), giving back the State vehicle issued to her, maintaining that she already had a car, and dismissing her State provided security force (never mentioning - I imagine - that she's packing heat herself). I'm still waiting to hear the names of those other governors.
4. Now, even with her much-ridiculed "gosh and golly" mannerism, she also managed to put together a totally new approach to getting a natural gas pipeline built which will be the biggest private construction project in the history of North America. No one else could do it although they tried. If that doesn't impress you, then you're trying too hard to be unimpressed while watching her do things like this while baking up a batch of brownies with her other hand.
5. For 30 years, Exxon held a lease to do exploratory drilling at a place called Point Thompson. They made excuses the entire time why they couldn't start drilling. In truth they were holding it like an investment. No governor for 30 years could make them get started. Then, she told them she was revoking their lease and kicking them out. They protested and threatened court action. She shrugged and reminded them that she knew the way to the court house. Alaska won again.
6. President Obama wants the nation to be on 25% renewable resources for electricity by 2025. Sarah went to the legislature and submitted her plan for Alaska to be at 50% renewable by 2025. We are already at 25%. I can give you more specifics about things done, as opposed to style and persona. Everybody wants to be cool, sound cool, look cool. But that's just a cover-up. I'm still waiting to hear from liberals the names of other governors who can match what mine has done in two and a half years. I won't be holding my breath.

By the way, she was content to return to Alaska after the national election and go to work, but the haters wouldn't let her. Now these adolescent screechers are obviously not scuba divers. And no one ever told them what happens when you continually jab and pester a barracuda. Without warning, it will spin around and tear your face off. Shoulda known better.
You have just read the truth about Sarah Palin that sends the media, along with the Democrat party, into a wild uncontrolled frenzy to discredit her. I guess they are only interested in skirt chasers, dishonesty, immoral people, liars, womanizers, murderers, and bitter ex-presidents' wives.

So "You go, Girl." I only wish the men in Washington had your guts, determination, honesty, and morals.
I rest my case. Only FOOLS listen to the biased media.
NOW If you've read this far ...............................................now ,open your eyes..........

There has NEVER been anyone in the White House at any time who has created such an army of staffers whose sole duties are the facilitation of the First Lady's social life. One wonders why she needs so much help,at taxpayer expense, when even Hillary, only had three; Jackie Kennedy one; Laura Bush one; and prior to Mamie Eisenhower social help came from the President's own pocket.

Note: This does not include makeup artist Ingrid Grimes-Miles, 49, and "First Hairstylist" Johnny Wright, 31, both of whom traveled aboard Air Force One to Europe .

FRIENDS.....THESE SALARIES ADD UP TO SIX MILLION, THREE HUNDRED SIXTY FOUR THOUSAND DOLLARS ($6,364,000) FOR THE 4 YEARS OF OFFICE????? AND WE ARE IN A RECESSION????? WELL....MOST OF US ARE. I GUESS IT'S OK TO SPEND WILDLY WHEN IT'S NOT YOUR OWN MONEY?????

Yes, Yes, I know, The Canadian Free Press has to publish this because the USA media is too scared they might be considered racist.
Sorry USA !

Excellent post, MJFELL.

I'm listening to you right now. I prey you are correct, but I don't see it. Obama is a fifth columnist, or apologist at the very least, for the Muslim Brotherhood and radicals take advantage of chaos. Regardless of what one might think of these dictators in the middle east, in a chaotic region, they were a stabilizing factor, but perhaps so because of a strong and powerful US. Obama has weaken us so, that Muslim extremists are on the move. Their beachhead was Iran under Carter and I fear the breakout is Egypt under obama.

LongRifle

Politics, politics, politics. While the liberal conservatives fight the progressive Republican Democrats, 2.2 billion (soon) Muslems will be waging war on us; in our country.
The question: Are YOU ready?
Semper Paratus.

Bush was right #4,000 or so...... people want freedom, it is contagious. Now, we have no idea if it will be a positive or negative change for us in the USA. But, Egypt was not exactly Canada or UK as a friend, in spite of the billions we gave it. Nervous to see what may be the fallout. But, a message to all of how powerful the social network and new instant media can be, and how easily a govt. can shut it down too......watch out for what our federal govt. wants to do to control the internet. We hope a more open Egypt emerges, that wants to concentrate on improving Egypt....not destroying Israel or expanding militant Islam or propping up Iraq.
