If you read and listen to the media, everyone is saying the same thing about Egypt.... there is no diversity of opinion. Isn't that strange? Yes it is. You know the difference. You aren't a moron. We are watching a revolution, not an uprising, class warfare on a global scale. Rioting in Egypt did not come from the poor, it came from the middle class, the educated, somewhat Westernized. It's a class struggle. The first vision of a mass revolution and it's occuring right before our eyes.
Mubarak -- friend or foe? It doesn't really matter what we think. Mubarak is keeping the peace between the Arab world and Israel. God forbid, radicals will take over no matter what happens, Israel will be in war. Mubarak didn't get out of the way as the Obama dministration wanted him too. The White House came out and said they're on the side of the middle class in Egypt. Some think Obama favors the Muslim Brotherhood to take over. That would be unacceptable.
The media has stepped a level lower. They don't understand history. Who's behind this revolution? How did it happen so quickly? Why now? A few days after a judge said the healthcare bill is unconstitutional. None of the media knows who orchestrated this. They can only assume it's our government. But who really knows? The news media isn't answering those questions.
A Coptic Christian from Egypt shared some facts on a local radio talk show. If the Muslim Brotherhood gains influence in Egypt, the Coptic Christians will be persecuted and their faith attacked. That would make things worse.
Riots started by the youth, asking Mubarak to step down and start making correct changes. Election laws were written that made it impossible for anyone except Mubarak's son to take over. Foreign players are here at hand, two days ago in Liberty square, they are Hesbolah and Hamas. A power vacuum will be created. Why would Mubarak stay and not go away? He could have left, retired in luxury. He's worth billions of dollars. He chose to stay, sacrificing to stay in power, some Egyptians call him a man of honor, even if others consider him a tyrant. There were paid people in the square. The average Egyptian is now turning against the mobs who are there. Who is on Mubarak's side? The military backs him 100%. They have been given an order not to fire on the population. Once the military gives in, and Mubarak is removed, there will be chaos in Eqypt.
Our Vice President Jos Biden-- When asked if Mubarak was a dictator, Biden responded, "Mubarak has been an ally of ours in a number of things and he's been very responsible on, relative to geopolitical interests in the region, Middle East peace efforts, the actions Egypt has taken relative to normalizing the relationship with Israel ... I would not refer to him as a dictator." read more
What will happen? Some Egyptians have predicted that order will be restored, Mubarak will make the necessary changes, Egypt will move forward. The U.S. will be unable to force Mubarak out of office, the Egyptian people will not allow them to. We'll have to wait and see what transpires.
God bless America. Pray for our country! Listen to the Star Spangled Banner. Wear an American flag.
