Muslim Brotherhood Militia throws children off roof/no video to hard to look at.
Egypt in flames
Members of the Muslim Brotherhood Militia in Egypt were spotted committing wanton acts of violence following the military coup of Egyptian President Muhammed Morsi. Now that the president has been removed, Egypt is entering a second week of political crisis as opponents and supporters of Morsi are taking to the streets. 1,000 have been wounded and 30 were killed in demonstrations that have rocked the countryside and spurred millions of protestors to converge again on Tahrir Square.
The Muslim Brotherhood has a strong foothold in the Middle Eastern nation. The fragile democracy has been shattered in spasms of violence that have rocked Egypt since the beginning of the Arab Spring. And although US leaders such as Senator John McCain have previously been supportive of aid packages to the country, the notorious war hawk has reportedly changed his mind.
Republican Senator John McCain called for a suspension of U.S. military aid to Egypt after the army ouster of Islamist president Mohammed Morsi, breaking with the official position in Washington.
“I’ve thought long and hard about this, but I believe that we have to suspend the aid to the Egyptian military, because the Egyptian military has overturned the vote of the people of Egypt,” McCain said Friday evening at a press conference in his home state of Arizona.
“We cannot repeat the same mistakes we made at other times in our history by supporting the removal of freely elected governments,” the 2008 presidential candidate said.
This is what Democracy looks like?
McCain’s words seem inconsistent with the fact that he is currently in favor of aid and arming the military rebellion now underway in Syria. The Arizona Republican has been urging American taxpayers to subsidize terrorist factions and petty dictators in the Middle East for decades, advocating for US intervention in almost every single conflict since the outbreak of Arab Spring. But despite the urgency with which McCain has pressed to supply Syrian rebels with arms, Western weapons have yet to arrive in Syria. Time will tell.
