Egypt Poll Shows Negative Views Of U.S., Obama


Wake up America "Egyptians hold distinctly negative views of the United States and its president.­" Be afraid, be very afraid. Some of our journos and commentato­rs want Mubarak out for that's they way they see the world, but our form of democracy isn't for all. The media has censored itself to make us believe the Egyptian people want what we want. Don't fool yourself. For now, at least, Mubarak knows what is best for this country. The uprising is only in one area not all over Egypt.



WAKE UP!!!!!!!!­!

Egypt's New Government Announced On State TV


True. One can view our democracy is corporatoc­racy and kleptocrar­y, but the young in Middle Eastern and other countries (without democracy) see our democracy and freedom as being ideal. Why? Well, the media controls what gets out there. What do they show? A utopia society. Where getting rich is as easy as apple pie and once there all will love you.



I went to school with individual­s from countries where tyrants ruled. The moment they sat foot in the West it was a sigh of relief, however, once they began to look at our society _ the haves and have nots and fully understand our politics they were shocked at the corruption and dishonesty and the attitude of succeed by any means necessary you deserve it. Yet at the end of the day they favored it over what they had back home. So they settled into our way of life and become one of us. The same is happening to day in Egypt. Theirs isn't the best. They see ours and want it. All the while waiting in the shadow is a repressive government waiting for the current to be thrown out by the people so that they can seize the reigns and say the people wanted us here.

Republicans Keeping Politics Out Of Egypt Debate, Divided On Posture


What could possible go wrong? A dictatorsh­ip in an already fragile country, which will probably happen if Mubarak is removed abruptly. And yes our government­, to a degree, was found on protest; only difference is they (Egypt) has a large radical religious group wanting to take over the government­. We cannot and must not forget this crucial fact. While the people are wanting democracy, lying in the wings of democracy is the shadow of a repressive religious order. The one size fits all does not apply in the Middle East.

Obama, Incorporated


All that is written in this article, the American people have grown use to. It goes back to when Obama was running for president. The media didn't ask the follow-up question to what Obama put out there and to a degree told the American people we knew all we needed to know. Only when the media isn't given the answers or insight to the question do pieces like this surface. To that end, we got what we voted for.

Obama Administration Cut Funding To Promote Democracy In Egypt, Disappointing Human Rights Activists


Wait let's really look at this thing. Are we cutting funding to pay for a puppet democracy or are we cutting only to see a tyrant gain the reigns? The situation in Egypt isn't as cut and dry as we Americans think. We should be careful what we ask. The US hasn't always been successful in these types of crisis. Just look at the history.

America's Fragile Arab Dominoes


Merely, because we in the West feel that democracy is for all, doesn't mean this one size fits all is for other countries. Our belief of democracy is based on the premises of all men being created equal and have rights provided by the creator (I not saying this belief isn't wrong) but I am saying our views and way of justice or democracy perhaps isn't for everyone. A fact we must reconcile ourselves.



The fight for democracy isn't easy and it comes with a price. Keeping it also has its price and can't be taken lightly.



A pseudo-dem­ocracy or paid to have democracy is akin to no democracy at all.

Obama Proposed Cutting Funding To Promote Democracy In Egypt, Disappointing Human Rights Activists


True a lot of money we have spent or given to this country and others, but we were buying democracy and not really promoting.



I think one of the things we forget living in the West is that our form of government is a free for all democracy. While we have the views (and rightfully so) that all men are created equal this doesn't work in every country. We must also look at the fact that our views are biblically based on the omnipotent creator. Other countries don't have or share that view.

Obama Cut Funding To Promote Democracy In Egypt, Disappointing Human Rights Activists


Since the money spigot is cut from Egypt, do you think the President will channeling it toward the US for healthcare or jobs? Wishful thinking. That money has to got back into the pot to help other regimes.



Does the President and his administra­tion want Mubarak out? Do they know who will fill his shoes? This could be a dicey situation. Look at history and the US history on these matters. We fail miserably. So all those clapping for his removal should be careful what you are rooting for.

America's Fragile Arab Dominoes


Excellent piece which gives insight into this uprise. I listened to the author of this piece on MSNBC. Of all the guest, he was the only one seeing the matter for what it really is about. Too many times Americans see a country rallying for freedom and think the US should jump in full throttle forgetting the consequenc­es in doing so. This is the kind of logic we need understand and for people to see and read. Removing Mubarak thinking democracy will be opened to all in the region is a fairytale and wishful dreaming. There are other ramificati­ons to consider.



Key to all this is to remember President Obama is our President and not that of Egypt. While he can suggest and hope he can't force the country to do as he would like regardless of the fact of us sending billions of dollars their way (we did the same for Iraq and look at the results).

IS JORDAN NEXT?

Could Jordan be the next country to face protest by its people like Egypt and Tunisia?

While Hollywood and the US seem to have a love affair with the Hashemite King Abdullah II and Queen Rania, the kingdom's residence don't all share the love.

Many in Jordan a country of six million located in the Middle East many of the citizens are increasingly becoming immigrants from Palestine. Jordan has a friendly relationship with Israel, however, because its population growing from Palestinians from Israel the government might be forced to look at that relationship.

THE US HAS AN AWFUL TRACK RECORD...BE CAREFUL WHAT WE ASK FOR...


The US should be careful what we ask for as it pertains to the protest in Cairo, Egypt. While a demonstration by the people (made up of the young in the country) is thought provoking, hoping that the current government be overthrown could be dangerous.

Egypt is the only Muslim country in the Middle East to extend an olive branch to Israel. Since President Hosni Mubarak took office after the assassination of Anwar Sada in 1981, he has worked with the US to broker peace with other Arab countries and be a stabilizing force in the region. If Mubarak is removed we all loose, for the political group Muslim Brotherhood will take power and probably end the relationship with Israel.

The US should sit on the sidelines and let this unfold. Often times we are to eager government heads to be toppled only to have them propped up with a corrupt head. Look at our track record: Cuba, Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria.

I mean come on, he had the inside scoop that Daley wouldn't run so he was able to secure money and lay out a team to run for the office. The other candidates were privy to this inside informatio­n.

Why I Created <i>Skins</i>


So if the show is blocked from children who is the audience? Adults. And what does it say for adults watching kids have sex and misbehavin­g. Where is the sound judgment? The children who do watch will mimic unfortunat­ely what they see. Todays teens and tweens (I hate that classifica­tion) are growing up too soon.



Simply because it worked in Europe doesn't mean it will work or is for the US. Two different cultures and views on life (Not that one is wrong or right). Bottom line, the show in my opinion was created or copied for its sensationa­lism. Why not do a show on children who are getting it right? Boring? Or at least a show that really deals with the out fall of bad decisions from beginning to end (not all are Cinderella stories).



Yet we mask the bad and turn it into good or sensationa­lize it and it becomes entertainm­ent. Life isn't always a bowel and cherries. There are lemons and some of the lemons will never become lemonade.
