  • Does Obama's opinion on the issue even matter?

  • To a degree yes, as the lessons from Jimmy Carter show.

    Why are you so against democracy for Egypt. You don't know anything about the politics, and it's becoming clear that your bias is making you blind to the truth. You are so worried about the Muslim Brotherhood, which you have absolutely no understanding or knowledge of except what you have gleaned from whatever super right wing website you get your news from, that you would have the people live under a dictatorship with no freedom rather than take the chance of having a government that includes the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Honestly Carpy, you have absolutely NO idea what you are talking about. You just spew whatever crap you get fed without truly looking into the issue. A group is not defined as "terrorist" just because they oppose Israel. Are you so naive as to buy the line that the Mubarack regime in Egypt was anything but a corrupt dictatorship?

    Unlike you I don't look to other people's opinions to form mine. I look at the facts, as close to the source as I can get them. I do not believe the US' interest is furthered by supporting the oppression of the people of other countries. It is NOT stable, as is being shown. The choice the US must make is to get along with the democratically elected governments of the people, and not prop up dictators so they will do as we wish in regards to Israel. Who is being naive here.

  • honestly girls can i ask you something? who the hell is obama to have an opinion in whatever goes wrong around the world. On the other hand yes we know that America interferes everywhere in the name of liberty and democracy but we the Europeans know america's tricks and we also know that all these dictators were put by it and then they were send away. It's also true that people in America aren't properly informed and many facts and events have been twisted by thegoverment or the ones behind it.

  • I think Obama will do whatever his advisers and campaign managers tell him to do to make his chances of re-election better.
