After Cairo’s Coup

....the United States certainly should not be backing the coup makers against the Muslim Brotherhood. Of course that is exactly what the neocons are suggesting we do, David Brooks opining that Egyptians don’t have the “mental ingredients” to be real democrats, and Commentary arguing that this time the Obama administration has a “second chance” which it can redeem by wholeheartedly backing the Egyptian military. It is mildly satisfying to see the neoconservatives’ supposed “idealistic” interest in “democracy promotion” exposed as the dishonest huckstering for military aggression it always was. But if the United States has no real interest in invading other countries to bring them democracy, it certainly does not need to antagonize Muslims the world over by embracing a military coup against a freely elected Muslim political figure. Morsi’s failings were legion, and his downfall may well turn out to be a positive thing for Egypt. But he was neither brutal dictator nor mass murderer, and the millions of Egyptians who elected him in good faith don’t need an advertisement of American hypocrisy, which is what rewriting American law to allow a massive financial aid package for the coup makers would be.

No, that's the job of the police, that's why we have 911. Someone was in my backyard once, I called 911, the cops came and adamantly told me to stay in the house. That's how it goes.
I actually agree with you. Zimmerman should have stayed put after calling the police.

But neighbors are allowed to protect their neighborhoods even if it means walking around the neighborhood or waiting for the police.

If Zimmerman had not been carrying a weapon that night, it might have been Trayvon on trial - unless help had arrived first.

We'll never know, sadly enough.

Well, the so-called "talks" with the Taliban is falling apart. This was predictable. There's no reason whatsoever to talk with the Taliban. The only reason to stage this fraud show would be to sabotage the Karzai government.
As a result of Obama again appearing like an ignorant buffoon to the world, the US is now considering complete withdrawal from Afghanistan.

We should have done that the first day Obama took office. When the Commander in Chief is one of the enemy, all of the Armed Forces should be withdrawn.

Now, we should consider history. Yes, there is a parallel in history for this. South Vietnam.

In 1972 the South Vietnamese defeated the single largest communist invasion of the entire war WITH NO ASSISTANCE FROM US GROUND COMBAT UNITS which had been withdrawn from Vietnam the previous year. This caused the South Vietnamese to consume nearly all of their munitions and supplies.
The Democrat-controlled Congress of 1973 cut off all support for the government and country of South Vietnam, and passed the Case-Church Amendment which prevented any transfer of munitions and supplies from US Armed Forces to South Vietnam. The South Vietnamese could not replenish their exhausted supplies, and in 1975 the communists invaded a disarmed and defenseless South Vietnam.

Afghanistan is beginning to look like an exact parallel.

The study of killings by military veterans was conducted by The New York Times. It showed an 89 percent increase - from 184 cases to 349 - in the six years following the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan in the number of homicides involving active-duty military personnel and new veterans. About three-quarters of these cases involved Iraq and Afghanistan veterans.
More than half of the crimes involved guns while the rest were stabbings, beatings, strangulations and bath drownings, the report said. Twenty-five offenders faced murder, manslaughter or homicide charges for fatal car crashes resulting from drunken, reckless or suicidal driving.
https://www.commondreams.org/archive/2008/01/...
Wasn't the New York Times busted multiple times for printing fraudulent stories as "news"?

But, let's say 349.

How many murders were there in, oh, say, the south side of Chicago during this same time period?
I'll tell you. Over 3,000.

Obama voters in just one city murder over 3,000 people during the same time veterans are responsible for 349 deaths from the total population of the entire country.

... and you want the people who murdered as many people in just one city as were killed in a goddam war to run the country....

Teresa Heinz Kerry's condition has been upgraded from critical to "fair," according to a spokesman, after the wife of Secretary of State John Kerry was rushed to a Massachusetts hospital over the holiday weekend.

Kerry spokesman Glen Johnson said Monday that Heinz Kerry continues to undergo further evaluation. He said the secretary of State and other members of the family are with her at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. Doctors upgraded her condition after conducting a series of tests.

"The family is touched by the outpouring of well-wishes," he said.

Heinz Kerry was first taken by ambulance to a Nantucket hospital on Sunday. The family has not offered additional details on her condition, though speculation has focused on symptoms potentially connected with those of a seizure.

Nantucket Police Lt. Jerry Adams said a call requesting medical aid was received just after 3:30 p.m. for a home on Hulbert Avenue, and an ambulance was dispatched. Online records show the property is connected to Heinz Kerry's family.

So, what you're saying is, the Muslim Brotherhood terrorists in the White House every day are really the government-in-exile for Egypt, right?

How about this:

We join the side that is against the goddam terrorists at war with us and want to kill us.

Morsi had a chance. The Muslim Brotherhood's intollerance of any other faction sharing political power with them caused the Egyptian military to toss the terrorists' asses out of the government.
Now, there shouldn't be any reason to have the Muslim Brotherhood in the White House every day, should there?

Get back with us when you know enough to participate in the discussion. Give us the link for it.
Or, how about you open your lying yap and say something like "that didn't happen."
Hey son. You continually demand others answer your questions as if you're some sort of god.

Hoodieman called his girlfriend and told her he was going to kick some creepy ass cracker's ass, idiot.
Then, there's the location of Zimmerman versus the location of Hoodieman, the busted nose, the grass on the back of the shirt, and the evidence of Zimmerman's head being bashed against the concrete sidewalk.
On the other side, there's a hole blown through Hoodieman's chest cavity... and nothing else.
