whether or not Pres obama calls the military ouster of a freely elected Egyptian
president a 'coup' or not - it was a coup. Lines in the sand and
established rules mean nothing when word games are played. Egypt, regardless
of the violence and military coup, will continue to receive its annual allowance
from the US in order to fund a 'coup' that is not a 'coup'
So now it appears Obama is playing games using semantics to assure his agenda is
maintained. As the other commenter said, what is happening in Egypt is
unquestionably a coup. But admitting as much would undermine Obama's
political agenda with this particular Muslim country. He seems to always find
new ways to skirt US laws and procedures to accommodate his agenda.And just why is it necessary for us to pay a foreign government over a billion
dollars a year primarily to protect our embassy? First of all, it's
already that foreign government's responsibility. No one else sends money
to the USA for us to protect their embassies. And yet we always do, since
it's legally our responsibility. And even short of that, we
already have enough military personnel in the region that we could provide our
own embassy protection during questionable times, without throwing taxpayer
money around so irresponsibly. It's actually money we don't have to
spend. We are still spending nearly a trillion more per year than we take in for
our federal budget. And yet even questionable spending continues unabated and
The ouster was a coup. In fact, it is becoming very hard to call what is going
on in Egypt anything but a civil war.
Title of the article "Benghazi aftershocks affecting U.S. policy." I
only hope that the biggest effect and aftershock will be if Hillary decides to
run for President. Miss "WHAT DOES IT MATTER", should not be given a
pass on that one.
After shocks?That must have been some video.
The United States of America's founding fathers and the Constitution of our
great country's premise was that our country's leaders would have
honesty and integrity as part of their being and a caring attitude about the
precedence set by normally honorable leaders. We have paid a price
for a lack of caring by this President. He is what Hillary Clinton said that we
didn't want, a person that avoided the 3 a.m. call. He will act on every
social agenda that comes forth to thwart what people have come to this country
to enjoy. Freedoms and the pursuit of happiness and not pleasures. This man will do anything he can to be on a late-night show, even miss the
activities such as Benghazi in a leadership role or being the model. People on that street that Jay Leno interviews don't know what happened
the day before let alone 2 weeks later. They only know what is on their social
agenda and don't care about sacrifice and honor. They want glory through
their social media.Our military failed with Panetta at their helm as
with Hagel now. John Kerry disgraces the military from 1970-present.
