Jimmy Carter Part Deux

29 Jan

Check out this excellent post at Gateway Pundit on our Dear Leader’s fumbling of the crisis in Egypt. The thought of Egypt becoming another “Iran” is frighting.

Jimmy Carter gave us the current regime in Iran and all its horrors with his fecklessness. Obama appears to on the cusp of matching Carter, this time with Israel’s largest neighbor. God watch over and project the Jewish State.

I just hope and pray no Americans become hostages. We don’t need another “disaster in the desert” with our service men and women dying on some ill-planned and desperate rescue mission.

    Architect,

    What I do not understand clearly, and maybe you can help me, is why exactly are there protests in Egypt? Who is protesting (what group) and why? Who is the bad guy here. The Egyptian government, or the people protesting?

    Josh:
    The answer is neither and both.
    In my opinion, the Arab world finds itself in a no win situation, sadly of their own making. They have oppressed their populations for so long with people like Mubarak and the Shah (in the 70’s) that the fields are now ripe for revolution across the Arab world (Tunis, Egypt, Yemen, Jordan et al). The problem with revolution is that it opens the door for groups like Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood to fill the power vacuum with Islamo-fascism.
    We should have been working much harder to get these dictators to liberalize and modernize their societies. It’s too late for that now. Now we should be supporting pro-democracy, secular elements within the protest movement instead of standing around with our thumbs in our nether regions. We missed a huge opportunity last year with the protests in Iran.
    No easy answers. The time to fix and prevent this has long since passed.
