    In an interview on Fox a few days ago, John McCain describe the uprising in the Arab world as a virus that must be contained.

    Huh?? The Republican candidate for President and a leading conservative describes the uprisings of people seeking freedom as a virus that must be contained. When I first heard this, I couldn’t believe it. I know McCain prides himself on being a maverick, but to oppose people trying to overthrow dictators and secure free elections, in order to promote stability is wrong.

    There are two problems with your analysis:

    1 McCain is not a conservative, let alone a leading one.

    2. There is no evidence that this uprising is "democratic" and it's quite more likely that there will be an even more oppressive regime put in place.

    And what, praytell, constitutes a "democratic" uprising. Do the protesters have to first vote for a spokesperson?

    I know we have supported a lot of dictators and tyrants because we felt it was in our best interest, but I don't remember any respected member of the government going on TV and announced that people fighting for freedom need to be contained.

    Another George Soros "media matters" cherry picked quote turned over to left wing blogs like Huff. What would we do without Soros?

    Ok, he's not a leading conservative. He just thinks he is. I didn't say this was a democratic uprising, not sure what a democratic uprising is. I said it was an uprising of the people seeking freedom and to overthrow a dictator. The demonstrators have certainly made that clear.
