Seriously, would anybody care to note that our cherished Administration fully backed the so-called 'Arab Spring' and the Muslim Brotherhood's rise to totalitarian power? Ask yourself this, if you are a woman, are you better or worse off for this transition? No education, no driving, no rights. Sounds like a pretty bad deal.

---Seriously, would anybody care to note that our cherished Administration fully backed the so-called 'Arab Spring' and the Muslim Brotherhood's rise to totalitarian power? Ask yourself this, if you are a woman, are you better or worse off for this transition? No education, no driving, no rights. Sounds like a pretty bad deal.---Backing the Arab Spring gave a chance for authoritarian states to turn to democracies. Egypt as with Libya were authoritarian states prior to the "Arab spring", the difference was that Egypt was a non-sectarian regime. They had elections and unfortunately the right / conservatives of the region won. It's no surprise that the religious right would turn to a totalitarian because that's what religion strives for....control over the masses. They utilized the uneducated, the gullible, and superstitious to win the election. All we have to do is look to our own elections and what the conservative right wanted to understand it...it is NO DIFFERENT. For a true Democracy to form it takes time and education. For a true democracy it takes all parties to be willing to compromise and no one to have/want absolute power which is counter to what religion strives for.

"All we have to do is look to our own elections and what the conservative right wanted to understand it...it is NO DIFFERENT. For a true Democracy to form it takes time and education." I'm the conservative right...please tell me how I wanted to understand our elections. What gives you the right to judge us? I have a vote, and you have a vote...your guy won. Can't you accept graciously and stop spewing contempt on us? And, we are not a democracy. The USA is a constitutional Republic.

Hmmmm, we backed the "arab spring?" Funny, I thought we were backing a democratically held election in Egypt. How could I be so wrong?

"Morsi accused some in the opposition of serving remnants of Hosni Mubarak's authoritarian regime and vowed he would never tolerate anyone working for the overthrow of his "legitimate" government." That statement by Morsi, kind of says it all. So what should the American people do about this? Absolutely nothing. It is none of our business right now, and let the will of the people prevail in this country. We have this thing about getting mired down in wars and other peoples' business. It has got to end. You have to remember that even the USA didn't get it right the first time; ever hear of the Articles of Confederation?
