    I wonder if Obama will call for Mosni to step down as quickly as he did with Mubarek.

    Muslim Brotherhood offices torched, Morsi on defensive - EGYPT - FRANCE 24

    Does anyone remember any fires during the Tahrir Square protests?

    Teargas?

    Is there a reason this isn't the top story on every newscast in the country?

    Before the Muslim Brotherhood even took charge of Egypt, they were telling Egyptians to prepare for war. Morsi makes Mubarek look like a boy scout. Obama was openly supportive of the Muslim Brotherhood, despite their deep ties to terrorism. Anyone paying attention knew that things would heat up as soon as the radical Muslim Brotherhood, led by Morsi, took over and our media pretty much yawned and repeated the talking points about how nice it was that the people would be a democracy. Yea, working out real well.

    Did anyone here think the Muslim Brotherhood was good news for Egypt or any other country, for that matter?

    I am still trying to figure out why Obama thought it was a good idea to get rid of the government that was there. The only thing I have come up with is arrogance.

    As for what we should do, we should invent a time machine and go back and fix this. Since that is impossible, nothing seems to be the best option open to us.

    The revolution Obama took credit for has nothing to do with him? Why were idiots giving him credit for it then?

    Too late for him or his supporters to back away now.
