Mideast protests cause a shift in U.S. policy
The Obama administration initially backed away from a strong push for reforms in the Middle East, but with Egypt's uprising now in its second week, activists credit it for changing tack and backing pro-democracy protesters.
If US and Egypt are good allies, why did Obama find out about Mubarak stepping down from watching the same news we watch? Shouldn't he be privied to intelligence and communications with our allies in the middle wast?

Because the operative word here is if. We were allies until a week ago when Obama decided to throw Mubarak under the bus
You wanted him to support a dictator against the people of the country? the ally is the country not one man. He was a criminal stealing foreign aid money for his own personal wealth and plunging his country INTO these protests

Israel, thy name is arrogance
If the international community had slapped Israel down off its pedestal every time it dictated to others, Israel would not be so haughty. But the fact is, Israel has learned from the best—what better teacher in arrogance and superiority than the United States? Iraq and Afghanistan are still recovering from the US’s “democratic intervention”.
