I guess you missed this from the NY Times:
"CAIRO Perhaps the most radical change in U.S. foreign policy under President Obama has occurred here in Egypt, where the Muslim Brotherhood, long shunned as a collection of dangerous Islamist extremists, is now the de facto object of American support."

So that makes it true? The US continued its aid to Egypt, not the Brotherhood...

So, you're good with the Obama administration giving Egypt 4 F16 fighter jets, an Egypt controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood? Why not? After all, it is "aid for Egypt."

John Kerry supports it so I'm certain you will too.

If McCain gets any dumber he'll be a fence post. Go away John, you've lost it with your help the Lybians rebels, help the Syrian rebels, and help the muslim Brotherhood crap and take that other Navy traitor, Kerry with you. Your both a disgrace!

Do YOU seriously think that the U.S. is going to make public what the C.I.A. might actually be causing and whatever other covert activities, on behalf of intelligent U.S. interests, might be brewing!?

Islamic brotherhood dictatorship...BAD.

Egyptian military which has proven to be pro democratic elections...not so BAD.

Separation of church & state...

INFINITELY BETTER!

Stop US aid to Egypt...........soon all the Arabs will be dead. Lawrence of Arabia said the tribes will kill themselves for tribal religious laws.

Egypt is the cornerstone of any future dealings we may have in that part of the arab world. We can't just throw them under the bus. Every thing is a gamble? But this is worth our time and money.

Out of 100 U.S. senators, will someone please explain why we have to or should pay attention to the bitchin' of Lame Brain McCain? It is long past time for this old has-been media 'ho to go, because most of us don't want to hear or see him no mo'. Speaking for myself, I had rather hear and see almost anybody else.

I am sorry, my old Cold War fans and friends, the American Empire is over, it has to end. If the empire you still love and want to see, view and listen to "Victory at Sea" on DVD. Foreign conflicts make State Department, CIA and Pentagon panties wet; they not wanting us to quit because they do not give a shit about our $17 trillion national debt. They and their military-media whores still wanting us to "invest" and spend even more while they bore and ignore, while the taxpayers implore.

Sure it does. Just like I believe that the govt should NEVER place children in a home with a pair of gay men to somehow suggest a normal and balanced structure for parenthood. This decision denies, and in fact punishes a child by not providing him or her the basic human right to be endowed with a female mother during the childs most indelible years of their lives.
How does this have anything to do with my other assertion you might ask. Well, it just goes to show you who virtually is running and ruining this nation morally, physically, spiritually, and financially. Take a guess who my friend.
So there are two things that I believe are and should be unconstitutional.
what about putting childern in home where both parents are meth heads?Thats not normal an balanced.I would have given anything to have as you say normal parents that didnt spend more time in an out of jail or prison who cares if they were gay long as they love the child.Love matters.
