Listen to the Good Doctor...
I think the President made a big mistake siding with the Protesters. I thought he was handling it just right before he came out and took sides.
We play both sides...
RP has always been against foreign aid. He is just using the egypt problems as a boost for his rhetoric.
I agree-I don't think he should have done it. But, I think why he did it was the protesters will eventually get somebody new in office, and he wanted to side with them (loosely mind you-he's not going to be hands on in the situation), because of the Suez Canal. Whoever controls the Suez Canal, and whether they allow boats to come here from there does have a big impact on our economy.
Yea you're right. But we should play neither side instead.
Yea he was handling it just right before he was advised to pick a side. Now some in his Administration are even saying that it's ok for radical groups like The Muslim Brotherhood to be involved in any new Egyptian Government. These are very bad decisions being made by this President on this issue. He was not advised well on this one.
Picking sides seems to always get us into more trouble than it's worth.
DAMN HIM!!!! He should be more like Obama, say we pulled out of a war while still staying there to fight it!
You're gonna be "Evil America" either way in these Hellholes. You will be the "Evil Imperialists" no matter which side you choose. That's why aggressive Foreign Interventionism doesn't work in the end. I saw an Egyptian idiot holding a sign that read 'We hate your Hypocrisy America." This meaning they were angry we weren't supporting the uprising enough. Damned if you do,damned if you don't. That's where aggressive Foreign Interventionism always takes us. Our Foreign Policy has been a Lose/Lose for so many years. It's time for a revolutionary change. Non-Interventionism is the logical way forward for our nation. Now we just need our politicians to wake up and figure this out.
