He warned that, "As long as the Middle East remains a place where freedom does not flourish, it will remain a place of stagnation, resentment, and violence ready for export."Answer Question

So, why did he jump to the condemnation of Mubarak so quickly when Egypt is our ally, but has remained so quiet about Libya. His silence is seen as support of Ghaddafi by many who matter. Ghaddafi has been our adversary for years. England has evidence he ordered the bombing of the Lockerbie Pan Am flight 103. How do you remain silent in one case and vocal in another? Mubarak was more of a "king" and had a more oppressive rule than we are use to, but Ghaddafi is a tyant who had dungeons under the streets to torture and kill his citizens. Egyptian protesters get PBO's support. Libyan's protesters get crickets from the WH, basically. I don't get it.

somewhat...I just dont agree that we should bomb them then pretend we are bringing them freedom. The reason ALOT of their HATE and VIOLENCE is directed at us is our interference for decades....Had we stayed OUT of there , and NOT instilled corrupt governments / regimes...they could fight it out regionally ...
