Egypt = Wow! The cradle of civilization.......! Look what happened to Iran after the Shaw was deposed?
Mubarak has been given a lot of US ammo. Iraq was also given a lot of ammo. This is how the US knew they had weapons of mass destruction because the US gave them these weapons and they were used against Iraqis.
Now people are protesting in Egypt, wanting freedom. What does this mean exactly?
Under Mubarak Egyptian law prohibits the formation of political parties based on religion. Yet these religious groups do exist and if Mubarek leaves, will they get elected to replace him? And if they do get elected, what freedom would the people get under democracy? Nothing will change under Islamic laws.
Who will replace Mubarak?
What freedom does Iran have today after the Shaw?
When will the US learn that you cannot give freedom to people who are brain washed by a religion of hate? You cannot be modern,if you believe in a book that dictates Jihad against everyone that is not Muslim.
Why does America continue to give arms to unstable countries who are known to turn against her and every infidel, which is the rest of the world?
And why would Canada help here? We have 60,000 Egyptians here who do not say Canada is their country. Egypt is. So why are they here? Are they Expats? Expats do not get to vote in other countries and yet they vote here, in Canada.
The answer to dictatorship, does not lie in civil disobedience alone, if they have no other ruling alternative. They just open doors for Iran or some other dictator to take over and begin all over again.
With friends like this, who needs enemies? lol
Who are these young Egyptians and what have they been trained to believe in? Do they hate Israel? Do the love Palestine? Are they Shiite? Will they keep American Ammo and how will the US take back her arms from a regime that's to replace Mubaraks?
Very messy all this. Very messy. I hope they did enough in Egypt to teach people, to understand not to involve religion in government.
Although I do not see how it can be avoided in Muslim lands, believing in the intolerance, found in the Quran, especially when Christians are forced to live in garbage dumps with rats and not allowed to make a living, in Egypt. Reporters said the people want democracy and they are not impressed with Mubarek firing his government.
Well, hello. Political parties do fire their people. In Canada, Chretien did , when he demanded MPs support everything he wanted in spite of the fact the MP's were elected to represent the people. In Canada, it's not kept in the forefront but maybe it should be. You elect your MP to represent you. If he is not allowed to do this, then why elect him?lol
They said there are no Islamic groups in Egypt. They say this is an opportunity for Egypt to free itself. It remains to be seen, because right now, no one seems to know what this all means exactly .
