Obama: Egypt not an ally or enemy

Sep 13, 2012 Full story: KXAN-TV Austin 22

President Barack Obama says the U.S. would not consider Egypt an ally, "but we don't consider them an enemy." Obama said in an interview with the Spanish-language network Telemundo that Egypt is a "new government that is trying to find its way."

Obama's soft approach towards the Middle East has been the root cause for the unrest with militant Muslims locked in a power struggle between factions. His non-response concerning breaches of peace,attacts on troops and installations will result in more violence to the point that America will HAVE to respond. This will result in thousands of deaths in the Middle East. All thanks to an ineffectual President with an ineffectual policy. Obama is on record with being on the side of Islam,of supporting Muslims over American interests at the risk of instigating a war that can only be described as one sided with untold dead arabs in the end.

Egypt is NOT our ally! Morsi IS one of the Islamic brotherhood and the Egyptian government is no longer the same government of 50 years ago, when they were a non-NATO ally. The Muzzie savages are still rioting in Egypt in front of the American embassy and Morsi isn't doing jacksh!t because he's one of the Muzzie brothers. I say cut off all ties with Egypt and NO money to the savage brotherhood goverment.

Libya has taken action against the Muzzie brotherhood and are cooperating. They have also apologized many times. Their new goverment wants to be part of NATO.

What's really crazy, is that America still sends Egypt Billions of dollars. I heard on the radio tonight that some Republican Senators want to stop the aid, but I doubt if it will. Obama thinks if he pays them so much money, they will like him. I'm sure they just laugh at him.

-------Romney's attacks on Obama foreign policy show neocons' dominance
- Inside the swag bags that reporters received at the Republican National Convention last month were copies of Mitt Romney's book " No Apology ." In an election predicated on jobs and the economy, the candidate's foreign policy treatise, which articulates his hawkish views and his belief that Barack Obama had turned his presidency into an apology --------

*()_+)====YOU JUDGE IT!--=======

Specifically tell what the above statement means,in respect to calling Neo-cons.

What is that--does it mean a Neo-con Romney versus a war-Monger Obama?

HOW COME, IS BY THAT SAYING --AS WAR-MONGERING IS ACTUALLY HAWKISH, WHILE A NEO-CON WHO SAYS NO WORDS OF WAR LANGUAGE IS HAWKISH, BY ONE'S LABELLING?
SIMPLY, it is wrong and untrue to perceive this way by the press or others.

(See following:)

On Afghanistan: Romney (Neo-con but not war- monger) calls for time table for withdrawal as Obama (the HAWKISH war-monger) has added troops to prolong war.

On Libya and Egypt: Romney has not done those things like that Obama (the HAWKISH war-monger) has done, in Libya and Egypt.

On Iran and Syria: Romney speaks for not being seen as using war words by just calling tough sanctions, while Obama's (the HAWKISH warmonger's) war language to Iran by saying as not bluffing, and his all ready game with war in Syria has demonstrated his war monger aspiration for former Germany's Hitler.

"Are we really going to hold what we can say or do in our own country hostage to the passions of foreign lynch mobs?

If your answer is some of form of ďyes,Ē then you might want to explain why U.S. citizens arenít justified in attacking Egyptian or Libyan embassies here in America. After all, I get pretty mad when I see goons burning the American flag, and I become downright livid when a U.S. ambassador is murdered. Maybe some of my like-minded friends and I should burn down some embassies here in Washington, D.C., or maybe a consulate in New York City?

Of course we shouldnít do that. To argue that Americans shouldnít resort to mayhem while suggesting itís understandable when Muslims do is to create a double standard that either renders Muslims unaccountable savages (they canít help themselves!) or casts Americans as somehow less passionate about what we hold dear, be it our flag, our diplomats, or our religions.(Itís hardly as if Islamists donít defame Christianity, Judaism, moderate forms of Islam, or even atheism.)

But, Iím sorry to say, that may in fact be the case. After all, with barely a momentís thought these deep thinkers on MSNBC were willing to throw out the First Amendment for a little revenge. It was a moment of voluntary surrender to terrorism.

Within 24 hours, however, it became increasingly clear that the video wasnít even the motive for the murders; it was a convenient cover for them. In effect, the terrorists behind the Libyan attack not only successfully played the Muslim street for suckers, they played Barnicle & Co. for suckers, too."
