I spoke to Shukrallah in February, just after I returned to the United States from an extended visit to Cairo. Over the course of several weeks in the city, I saw the conflict between the Brotherhood and its urban-based opposition turn violent, first in December, with a massive street clash near the Presidential Palace that began when Brotherhood supporters bused in from the countryside assaulted young protesters encamped outside the palace, which ended with hundreds injured and a handful dead. Following a wave of attacks days later on Brotherhood offices around the country, a group of Salafists held a sit-in outside Media City, an area outside Cairo that is home to many of Egypt’s private broadcasting outlets. There, the Islamists called for the “purification” of the media, accusing the networks of inciting violence against Morsi and attacking journalists in retaliation.

According to Shukrallah, the events at Media City reflected the determination of the Brotherhood and its allies to exert at least as much control over private media as over state-run institutions like Al Ahram. The criminal investigation launched in January against Bassem Youssef, a comedian known as the Egyptian Jon Stewart, who has grown famous for his satirical portrayals of Islamists including Morsi, is another example Shukrallah cited as evidence of the government’s authoritarian impulses. This month, Youssef was accused of defaming Morsi in a new lawsuit filed by Brotherhood supporters who claimed they were “psychologically affected by this nonsense, ridicule and slander addressed to the head of state.”
Other than this cut and paste bullshit, what do you know of the brotherhood?

Dont expect Noriega to make any new revelations or shift the ground in Panama much less the hemisphere. After interviewing the general extensively and investigating the U.S. invasion and the problematic politics surrounding the U.S. drug war, Ive concluded that General Noriega all along was but a minor chess piece in a global game and was thrown off the board when he stopped cooperating with his former U.S. mastershe was a CIA asset for years."

You are way off in your assumptions. The member nations of the Allied Forces from WW II supported Israels mythical claim about a holy land so long as that freed those nations from having to host the Jewish Refugee.....

That's not no different than how the Confederates tried to section off the South in America even after the South surrender, many southerners refuses to abide by the laws of Congress and the U.S Constitution for more than 100 years.

Gadiffi has not been dead 6 Months it's going to take a while before restoring law and order to all Libya.

As your post suggest, you aren't lying you just don't have a understanding of what's going on in Libya.

The Government, run by Gadiffi at one time has crumbled in Libya, it's a virtual free for all with no police or military in vast areas of the country.

In some areas, gangs of criminals armed from dethroning Gadiffi are fighting for control of those areas, until Libya can dispatch personnel to bring those areas back under the control of the Libya Government and restore order.

Do not confuse population growth with emigration, goofball!

Example: pretend you have a large tank of water. Then you have a hole at the bottom where the water drains while you add water on the top. Then also imagine the water INSIDE also growth cause water molecules procreate more water molecules.

So you have water coming in the top, immigration, water coming out, emigration and water being "crated" inside, birth growth!

Now, can you show us that the REASON, INTENTION, PURPOSE, CAUSE, of the 3,000 gallons of water leaving the tanks is the same reason the 5,000 new gallons of water COME into the tank are the same?

You can not prove me wrong unless you do this:

If you can show that the REASON, PURPOSE, INTENTION, EXCUSE, CAUSE, for California's growth is BECAUSE people want to pay more taxes and want to be more and more regulated and being told how much to drink, what to drive, what to eat, etc,

Then and only then you can prove me wrong, goofball!
