“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

It's about to hit the fan in Egypt

If you are one of those people who think that Egypt's former President Mubarak was a horrible, brutal dictator and the Egypt is better off without him, you are an idiot. This is what has become of Egypt since Mubarak's departure.....

From Yahoo News -- Close to 100 women have fallen victim to "rampant" sexual attacks in Cairo's Tahrir Square during four days of protests against Egypt's Islamist President Mohamed Morsi, Human Rights Watch said on Wednesday.
"Mobs sexually assaulted and in some cases raped at least 91 women in Tahrir Square... amid a climate of impunity."

Normal, evolved Arabs do not mob-rape women by the hundreds at random, but Sharia-compliant Muslim men do. Ever since Obama pulled the rug out from under Mubarak the way that moron Jimmy Carter did with the Shah in Iran, the respective countries have plunged into the dark abyss of 7th century Islam where anything can be done to any woman with total impunity.

These demonstrators aren't necessarily peace-loving democrats who just want a representative government and safety for the tourists. We don't know who they are or what they want except to be rid of Morsi. Perhaps their choice of leader would be worse.

Ed, you are correct. And what a powder keg.

At this point David, I think a military coup is by far the best solution. The military is the only force in Egypt that is stable and who we understand. They would bring peace back to the country and the tourists would eventually return....at least once the military dealt harshly and publicly with the first person to harm a tourist. How is that a bad thing?

David said...

It seems it might not be a military coup per se.

Ed said...

Maybe I misjudged the situation. So far so good, as the military doesn't seem to want power and the acting President wants to hold free, open, transparent, and legitimate elections as soon as possible.

Perhaps I was partially wrong about the Egyptian people. Of course Morsi was democratically elected too....what's to stop the Brotherhood from turning out to elect another hardliner like Morsi? And, the military suspending the Constitution and turning over an election because the people demand it, is a dangerous precedent to be setting going forward.
