That's up to the Egyptian people to decide as to whether or not they want to be our allies. If not, fine with me. One more country to cross off of our foreign aid list.

Yes. And then all the posters calling Caliphate warners, tin foil hat fools, will be smiling and defending it with a shrug of the shoulder. That's the way it works.

So then, what were we supposed to do. Stop the revolution? That's not our place to have had a say so in which type of government they want.

If they want a caliphate, then so be it. Not my problem.

We dont have to stop it, but we played cheerleader in Egypt and more so in Libya. We didn't stay out of it, rather we enabled our enemies

Enemies? What enemy? No one in Egypt has done anything to me. YOUR enemies maybe, but not mine.

I would. They aren't my problem. If they're yours, then speak for yourself.

Obama and friends sold this as people wanting democracy - crapola.
