    Sounds like the guy is praying for another 9/11.

    Which clip did you watch? The guy is an internationally well respected historian. Is it that you don't like what he had to say that makes you seek to find some way to dismiss his thoughts?

    How did you arrive at that conclusion from the clip that was posted?

    What a load of partisan blather.

    This guy is so clueless that responding to his nonsense is pointless.

    Obama is not in charge, lad.

    Wake up.

    Partisan? He's not even an American, yet alone a conservative. :lol: He's an academic.... from Harvard, and Oxford... and one of the most respected historians around. He speaks at global security conferences, and the UK Government (both before and after their recent elections.... so both their 'left' and 'right') take him seriously. He is, in short, a world renown expert.

    I would challenge you to point out where he said anything that was not historically accurate, and how that history informs his opinion of the current situation in Egypt.

    Egyptians toppled a 30 year old dictatorship -- which we helped prop up -- in 18 days without a shot fired. They are well on their way to democracy and freedom.

    When, exactly, did we decide only Americans should be free?

    Oh goodie.... Miss 'Ain't Got a Fucking Clue About the Fact but I'll Form an Opinion Anyway' is on the thread... Adding stupid fucking pics again.

    Personally, I'll listen to a Professor of History, from Harvard and Oxford, and an international reputation over the blatherings of Mad-o-lyin.

    Techy, the partisan blather would be your post...
    1. The Obama CIA had not a clue, but, as pointed out in the clip, Israel suggested the course of events a year ago.

    2. The Obama administrastion had numerous conflicting statements as to what would happen, when it should happen, and what they wished to happen....
    What a terrible image of the US competence for the world to see.

    Not seen since 1979.

    3. As far as blather, how did you like the response about how successful the 'revolution' was, and Ferguson came back with something like 'how could it be successful' with the army in charge'?
    Nail on the head by Niall!
