Turmoil in The Arab World

I hate to say "I told you so," but I did predict that the rioting would spread.  To me it's just so obvious, I can't understand how anyone can honestly believe that the demonstrators are really for benign western style democracy.  Remember how U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama was raised and his mother's extreme Leftist ideology.  He really may be incapable of comprehending what's going on

It's not going to be easy for the American military to leave Iraq with dignity.  Either they will have to stay or they'll flee, like from Vietnam.  Yes, the riots have reached Iraq.  And they're rioting in Lybia and Bahrain, too.

And about Egypt...  now that the military has taken over, things seem to be getting worse for the general population.  Will they soon miss the days of Hosni Mubarak?  Well, they wanted change. 

Maybe it was the military who secretly instigated the riots because they didn't want Mubarak's son to take over....

That's entirely possible.


As for the US and Iraq we can either admit defeat and leave, fight indefinitely, or make Iraq an unofficial commonwealth of the US (we're responsible for keeping the 'peace' and providing for their needs).

Personally, I think the US should forget about its dignity (who wants the respect of these loser countries anyway?)and just put an end to our involvement.

We helped to topple s. Hussein. That was more than enough. He tortured/murdered 200,000 of his own people. After his execution that ball was in Iraq's court and they dropped it.

re: Egypt, that's a real possiblitiy.
Don't forget that the Americans killed plenty of Iraqis while searching for Saddam Hussein.
