    The Arabs revolting throughout the Middle East are doing so now, why? 1 reason. They've always thought the US would back the gov't to keep stability, and likely prevent an uprising. Until now. True or not, they THINK there is a Muslim in the White House who is sympathetic to their cause. The radicals, like the Muslim Brotherhood, in their minds think that now is the time to revolt, because the US president will do everything possible not to intervene because, as a Muslim, he sympathizes with them.

    I think that has a lot to do with it. Obama's speech in Cairo apologizing for America was almost like an official "go ahead" call to begin preparing for revolt.

    Thanks Mr. Obama. Your legacy may well read that you allowed the Middle East to implode.

    Why US silence on Bahrain's crackdown could backfire
    April 14, 2011 - For the fourth time in two weeks, a detainee died in police custody. Witnesses say his body, like the others, bore signs of abuse.

    Libya Conflict Has Displaced 550,000 People
    April 25, 2011 - U.S. officials said Monday that more than a half-million people, most of them third-country nationals, have fled Libya since the uprising against Moammar Gadhafi's government began in February. And they say about 5,000 people are joining the exodus every day.

    Oh man, you dug this thread up from the grave. Yep, they are. Theres a reason Muslim radicals worldwide see NOW as the time to revolt. Because the "world police" is being led by someone who is sympathetic to them.

    Think about it. Why would all the drug dealers in Los Angeles suddenly become brazen and bold? Only if the LAPD was being led by a person sympathetic to drug dealers.

    We are being led by a president who is at best sympathetic to their cause.......and at worst, one of them.

    Why not just make a new thread instead of resurrecting a seemingly random dead thread from a couple of years ago?
