Egypt and the middle-east is in an uproar, meanwhile shrillary and company sits back and calls for restraint--seriously, do they really believe anyone in the middle-east gives a flying fig what they say? That's like putting a note in a bottle asking the ocean not to create any more tsunamis. It just ain't gonna happen.
|Mohammed ElBaradei Returns|
In this article from Mesopotamia West he states...Owing to US aid, the Egyptian military today makes the military Israel barely defeated in 1973, look like a gang of cavemen. Egypt has nearly 300 F-16s. Its main battle tank is the M1A1 which it produces in Egypt. Its navy is largest in the region. Its army is twice the size of the IDF. Its air defense force constitutes a massive threat to the IAF. And of course, the ballistic missiles and chemical weapons it has purchased from the likes of North Korea and China give it a significant stand-off mass destruction capability. Now just imagine all that military power in the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood--Oh, by the way, their motto is: Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur'an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope... Thank you to the USA for making it possible for radical Islam to have a fully outfitted military force readily available for them to use in fulfilling their goals.
You may remember that Elbaradei, as head of the IAEA shielded Iran's nuclear weapons program from the Security Council. When Iran's goals became too glaring to ignore, he continued to lobby against sanctions, or any actions, against Iran, while having the chutzpah to equate Israel's purported nuclear program to Iran's. This of course has earned him the glowing love of the Iranian regime. Elbaradei's support for the Iranian ayatollahs is matched only by his support for the Muslim Brotherhood. This group is the harbinger of Hamas and al Qaida and openly seeks Egypt's transformation into an Islamic regime. Just like Turkey, they have visions of standing at the forefront of the global jihad. Just like in the US and Europe, this group's attorneys actively represents terrorists arrested in Egypt. In a recent interview to Der Spiegel, Elbaradei stated, I take the Muslim Brotherhood at their word. Egypt is a country shaped by Islam. And in another interview, "We should stop demonizing the Muslim Brotherhood..."
It should be noted that the Muslim Brotherhood is backing Elbaradei's aspirations to take over the regime in Egypt--Surprise, Surprise, Surprise...
For an excellent report of on the implications of these riots to take over in Egypt--and possible consequenses here is an article by Caroline Glick that touches on the key issues. Do take the time to read it. You can see pictures of the situation HERE--Warning there are some graphic images.
