Required viewing and reading for Obama supporters
“Video of Niall Ferguson, professor of History at Harvard, giving a priceless smackdown of MSNBC libs: http://blog.heritage.org/2011/02/15/niall-ferguson-slams-obamas-handling-of-egypt-on-morning-joe/
Ferguson's newsweek article: http://www.newsweek.com/2011/02/13/wanted-a-grand-strategy-for-america.html”
“Wow, and people think NBC doesn't have a biased viewpoint but Fox does? LMAO! These guys are apoplectic that this guy has a viewpoint different than theirs! LOL”
“and they keep making his point that Obama's strategy consists of saying "I'm not Bush", as they keep asking him "Do you think Obama is worse than Bush?" Wow! LMAO!”
“Harvard Elites and Presidents, all alike as they can be, because they work for everyone BUT the american people, isn't that what we really have?”
“This is just the beginning....
“The coming insurrection has begun....

“I think King Crimson is the dark lord of prog...”
Iranian officials have announced plans to deploy warships to areas near Israel and to dock at a Syrian port for a year. Such a move would be a "serious provocation," a senior [Israeli] official said. There is no justification for Iran to deploy its battleships to the Mediterranea Sea, he said, and if it does so, Israel will view the move as "a change in the situation" and "Israel will know how to deal with it."
Iranian warships are now deployed in Bab el-Mandeb in the Indian Ocean, as part of international efforts to combat piracy, the paper reported. It cited Western intelligence officials who said that Iranian warships in the Red Sea could supply radical Islamic groups from Yemen with weapons.”
“Bets on their response ...
How about "a stern warning".”
“Hands out for more money?”
“Yes Money, come on Uncle Sam, you can borrow some more to buy these guys off, offer more parts, Offer Mubarak's shares in the US's IMC.”
“Last week I thought maybe it was money well spent
“Iraq War 3 Trillion
Bush Domino Policy
Iraq War, Tunisia, Egypt..... 1 Trillion EACH
Just like that first rainstorm with that new $240 dollar rain jacket by the third storm its only $80 a storm then $60 then $48, then $40 etc.....
Money well spent”
This week I cant figure it out Well spent in, say for Egypt Tunisia, Iran? But even Iraq may unravel but then there is Libya Algeria, Yemen, Bahrain sp? Who will fill the void - what kind of Government?
Bush Dominos may be disasterous”
“Well Bahrian is behaving much more like the stereotypical despot ruler than Mubarak ever did.
So much publicity about how Mubarak was an "Iron Fisted" ruler but he did not set the cavalry with sabers on the mob (Tsar Winter Palace) or even some of the strike busting behavior used against the Unions in the aerly days of the USA.
He seems almost benign in retrospect, perhaps he got a bad Press.”
“The army wasn't brutal in Egypt because apparently it was a hell of a lot smarter to use the protestors to smooth the process of removing Mubarak from power, while maintaining the regime. Egypt's situation is probably unique in that respect.”
“I so smart I know so much about Egypt and I can solve the problems over there and I should have been a diplomat but instead I post on trailtalk.”
“We would have never guessed?”
“LOL - are you mocking me? I think geopolitics is fascinating.”
““LOL - are you mocking me? I think geopolitics is fascinating.”
Yes! But only because I'm jealous and have no clue about the politics of that region. Good on you!”
“Wake up and smell the Caliphate !
Wonder why Obama's own Organizing for America and Google are involved....hmmmm, that's wierd”
“I'm jealous and have no clue about the politics of that region. Good on you!
Thanks Dad! The condescending self deprecation was not lost on me - LOL”
“Another Koch Sucker on every thread.”
“"Wake up and smell the Caliphate !"
This statement is about as entertaining as "Jihad Bush!".”
“The labs at Crest* are formulating a new tooth paste to remove caliphate, that private sector again.”
““Muslim Brotherhood, anyone?
Walk like an Egyptian.....”

“Ummmmm, Egypt has a Islamic population component but it is a minority.
Some folks need to do some research ... for once.”
FLAMO QUEBALL. Told ya.
EGYPT’S MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD CANDIDATE OFFICIALLY SWORN IN AMID FRESH INTERNATIONAL CONCERNS
Isn't that weird?”
“Strat ole boy, Q is a good guy, from what I hear thru dependable channels, but American he is not.......
......you would feel better screaming at a run-down barn.”
“Oh I have no doubt he's a good guy, just wrong. Everybody on this thread thought I was wrong, in fact.
I quit yellin at barns years ago....”
“"I quit yellin at barns years ago...."
Step in the right direction. Now once you recognize that this electron is merely window dressing, the "Presidency" doesn't actually have any power (now, since the military took control under their Constitution) and that the Egyptian military is actually still in control of most everything in the country, well, call yourself really enlightened.
Get yer head out of Beck's ass.”
“Still denying it. Isn't that weird...”
“It's called not believing BS when I heard it.
I would love to stand right next to you when you realize that everything you've spouted has been a lie.
lol! Actually, I could prolly hear yer head exploded from Michigan ...”
“when you realize that everything you've spouted has been a lie.
It's not a lie in the sense that his emotional reaction to what he's been spoonfed is real. He's not so much saying that the MB is in control of Egypt like he "prophesied" (obviously that IS a risible distortion, as you pointed out) as he is acknowledging that yes, indeed, he sure did have the emotional response he predicted he would have to the sensationalist crap he's uncritically swallowed from entertainers in the media. "Muslim Brotherhood...election...must mean Egypt is now 1979 Iran! I was right!" Cue emotional outcry on TT...”
“"Strat ole boy, Q is a good guy, from what I hear thru dependable channels, but American he is not......."
And there we go. The standard line when someone has nothing else to say because they've had their asses handed to them.
I'm not American everybody. Shyt, I haven't heard that one since last week. Oh, this coming from someone who didn't live in this country until recently.
Shyt, how much tax money did you contribute to your homeland while you were away there, American?
FLMAO!!! ExPats are so cute when they come back home and tell us how bad we have it here.
You're not American, either. You (if you really are a citizen) are a citizen of the United States of America.
You know .. that means the United States of America.
You know what the Americas are right, Ex Pat?
The Americas are comprised of a few things that are called continents.
You must be a really important person to claim to be a person of all of that land.
“Whatever boneheads. I told you it was gonna happen and all of you called me crazy and stupid. Now that it HAS happened, you are all calling me crazy and stupid.
“You are even better than Becky Glenn, I'll never figure out how you could foresee this outcome from a muslim country surrounded by other muslim countries allowing the only real organization in the muslim world to take over a whole US Military outpost called Egypt.”
