The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and the United States had and has no greater friend than Barack Hussein Obama.
Obama ordered, aided and abetted the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak, Egypt’s former President who was a long time friend and ally of the United States, a long time friend and ally whose presence and cooperation kept peace between Egypt and Israel and allowed the U.S. to implement its foreign policy in the region and the wider Middle East.
That paved the way for the Brotherhoods rise to power.
Throughout the Muslim Brotherhood’s rise to power and time in power Obama did everything he possibly could to support and maintain it, even though it was vicious and dictatorial, even though it abused, tortured and killed religious minorities, even though it destroyed the Egyptian economy, even though it was rapidly turning Egypt into a country governed by Sharia, Islamic Law, even though it was rabidly and fanatically anti-American, anti-Semitic and anti-Israel, even though the honesty and results of the elections which brought it into power in the first place were questionable, even though it was plain that the Egyptian people rejected the Brotherhood and what it was doing to their lives and their country and even though it was obvious from the beginning that a Muslim Brotherhood government was not and never would be in the best interests of the United States in the Middle East or anywhere else…was in fact harmful to the best interests of the United States in the Middle East and everywhere else.
Obama’s angry and upset alright, so angry and upset that he has threatened to curtail funding of the Egyptian military in retaliation for deposing the Muslim Brotherhood government in spite of being warned not to do so, so angry and upset that he has failed to congratulate the Egyptian people for rising up and getting rid of a brutal dictator, Mohamed Morsi, and a government which was rapidly bringing the country to rack and ruin, so angry and upset that he isn’t detached and looking at or acting in the best interests of the United States but is allowing his bias for the Brotherhood to govern his reaction, so angry and upset that he is taking its ouster as a personal repudiation, which of course it is and which fits in perfectly with his personality and mentality.
So angry and upset that he would return Morsi and the Brotherhood to power if he could.
Politics and life are full of irony and it is ironic in the extreme that the Egyptian people have rejected Obama and the Muslim Brotherhood and tossed the Brotherhood out of office at the same time that Obama has embraced the Brotherhood in the United States and allowed it unprecedented influence in the affairs of the nation.
To Americas great detriment.
Obama not angry and upset? Come on now, of course he is.
He wouldn’t be Obama if he wasn’t.
Oh, and if Washington is ambivalent and aloof to the situation in Egypt it shouldn’t be.
It should repair the damage that Obama has done.
It should support the military, support the people, provide food and material aid and invigorate the economy, at the very least.
In the best interests of peace and stability.
In the best interests of the United States.
Not Obama, the United States.
