So just how many of our Allies will Obama piss of before he is done?

President Barack Obama's attempt to abruptly push aside Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in favor of a transition government has sparked a rift with key Arab allies Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates, which fear the U.S. is opening the door for Islamist groups to gain influence and destabilize the region.

Vying to influence the outcome of events, Saudi Arabia and the U.A.E. have sent public and private messages of solidarity to Mr. Mubarak and his vice president, longtime intelligence chief Omar Suleiman, diplomats said. The messages amount to support for the president and Mr. Suleiman to oversee the transition and to ensure that Islamists can't fill any possible power vacuum.

    Do you have any idea of what Egyptians went through for the past 30 years??????

    Obama could slaughter all the unborn kids in the WORLD and still not cost us as many Allies as Bush did.

  • I think any other person sitting in the Oval Office right now would have made the same move.

    News flash. We did not lose any allies under Bush. If so, please elaborate.

  • Are we holding up Saudi Arabia, a country where women are FORCED to cover (unlike Egypt), where women's rights are oppressed, and where Christians are not allowed even to enter in to parts of it (also unlike Egypt), as the standard of Middle Eastern moderates? OMG lol. Please pay attention people. You all are getting mixed up here. Just FYI, the Saudi royalty has an interest in making sure democracy doesn't spread in the ME. And it's NOT because they are worried about extremists. lmao they are one of the MOST extreme Muslim countries! You can't honestly be falling for this, can you? OMG

  • By the way, Saudi is also well known for sheltering terrorists. Their court system is MUCH more oppressive and extreme than the Muslim Brotherhood. Wow! People are really uninformed.
