The United States is not Egypt. The United States did not cause Egypt's problems. What happens in Egypt does not dictate what happens here. Once and for all let's drop the idea that we are tied to Egypt. It is beyond silly.

As I wrote earlier:

"It's the U.S.-FUNDED EGYPTIAN ARMY that will be the REAL challenge, but the brave men and women of Egypt have proven that YES THEY CAN - and in their case, unlike our laughable Emperor Oblabla, they truly do WALK THE TALK."

Hi Brandon37. How is it going today.

Of course the US is not Egypt. But the questions remain:

  1. How can you be so sure that there will be no correlation between what happened in Egypt and what might happen here?

  2. After all, was the same can not opened here in the USA too? and according to OWS across the entire world? Is OWS lying about the extent of this grand can opening event. Or was this just boastful bragging and now we want to back out of our glorious claims made regarding that mess. Why does a label on our can that says green beans and the one in Egypt saying peas mean that the contents will be any different if some of the forces in abundance herein have their way.

  3. For me, at least, what is happening in Egypt is the part that is "beyond silly" and we promoted it all the way - did we not.

  4. The silly question, should be this, Now that we have what we wanted - what are we going to do when the real killing starts over there.

[-] 1 points by Brandon37 (372) 2 years ago

I don't even know how to respond to this. Without the media, you would have little clue of the happenings in Egypt. We do not live under a 20 year old dictatorship. We do not have the majority rising up against a dictatorship - other than getting Obama out of office. I would advise you worry about the United States. Let Egypt handle its own issues.

Brandon37

My mistake. I only know what I read on this website and I was under the impression that we DO live under a 20 year old dictatorship called corporations. Everytime I see the OWS posting information about the uprisings here, the numbers grow by multiples of two. I guess that I just assumed that OWS presented the truth. Dumb me.

[-] 1 points by Brandon37 (372) 2 years ago

You can draw up any connection you want in your mind. Most Americans are more concerned with the problems here in the states. Egypt has nothing to do with it.

[-] 0 points by blackbloc (-19) 2 years ago

yes i am more concerned about us than them, however i have empathy for those who do want freedom from the oppression or jihadism

[-] 0 points by ronjj (-241) 2 years ago

Of course that is where our concern is (Most Americans) it would be pretty silly to think otherwise and you do not even have to post a poll that proves your point.

History, even recent, is history and failure to look at comparisions is utter foolishness unless you want to do the same thing again and expect different results. You cannot assume that our problems have never occurred in any remotely similiar form anywhere else in the world and that we are just so unique that we can discard all history for what it might teach us. OR CAN YOU??

[-] 1 points by Brandon37 (372) 2 years ago

You could pick any nation on earth and draw up some correlation. I can assure you that most Americans do not wake up worrying about what is happening in Egypt. They are not our brother nation - they are a Muslim nation.

[-] 0 points by ronjj (-241) 2 years ago

Of course most Americans do not wake up that way - I happen to be very concerned for several reasons - I like the study of Egyptian history and would love to visit that area before age catches up with me - but it looks like I will never be allowed to because of some people decided to mess it up for ME. Well, you are right, I have no reason to complain or even be concerned, after all those pyramids do belong to them.

What happened, I thought that a few years ago, they were our brother nation, we could travel there, they were involved in the matter of border security, etc. Guess that was a wrong assumption on my part and that nothing has changed at all.

[-] 0 points by blackbloc (-19) 2 years ago

thats if the jihadists don't blow up the pyramids and sphinx like they did the buddha in afghanistan : (

[-] 0 points by blackbloc (-19) 2 years ago

actually we have been living under a coup since november 22, 1963

[-] 0 points by ronjj (-241) 2 years ago

And you are in charge of what part of that coup? Should I bow to you or someone else.

[-] 0 points by blackbloc (-19) 2 years ago

bow to your god the federal reserve.

What is happening not only Egypt, but Greece, etc basically worldwide is on overall PSYOP.... They are using this to gather data. IF the economy were to collapse here like Europe, Austerity measures would become the norm. Riots for food, benefits, etc would lead to martial law.... The outcome here is the same. This is why the debt ceiling was raised again, to buy time. The end game is the same...just delayed. I am not saying we planned it but the think tanks are testing the waters, things are edgy and will get worse....look at the trend, we are trending in the same direction. It is only a matter of time...

[-] 1 points by dugfmjamul (101) 2 years ago

"fail", you just can't read the 'tea leaves' can you? The revolution is turning out just the way the Muslim Brotherhood wants it to be, a transformation to 'sharia' and Islamic dominance throughout Egypt. That is called an overwhelming success to the 'fundamentalists' in Egypt.

[-] 0 points by blackbloc (-19) 2 years ago

it is a failure for the student protestors

[-] 1 points by dugfmjamul (101) 2 years ago

Of course, the student protestors didn't stand a chance against the forces of Islam.

The U.S. government are the ones that started everything in Egypt! They plan to cause chaos in the middle east, it was planned years ago!

[-] 0 points by blackbloc (-19) 2 years ago

are you insane democracy is a good thing unless it gets hijacked by radical elements who oppress the people through religious dogma...

[-] 1 points by OLLAG (84) 2 years ago

No be happy. The dictator likes America.

[-] 1 points by Oberon (35) 2 years ago

well i'm quite sure if you had any kind of dog in that fight you might think twice before writing everything off with the flick of a key.

[-] 0 points by blackbloc (-19) 2 years ago

it is obvious now that the military and the muslim brotherhood will control the country now they will kill people who try to stop this as illustrated in the latest video...

Winning! Egypt is still winning. Charlie Sheen knows. Egypt will rise up out of this and join the 7th century ASAP. If women are not equal...go fuck your selves.

[-] 0 points by Spankysmojo (849) 2 years ago

Anyone that ever read anything knew that was the fact before it started! Old news. Women are just under cattle in the Arab/Muslim world.

[-] 0 points by blackbloc (-19) 2 years ago

real egyptians are not arab if there are any left just like real iranians are not arab. it is unfortunate that jihadism destroys everything it touches and the demographic reality is that the west has a real problem demographically with islam because islam because of the desire to make nations islamic republics and the average islamic family has 8 kids western culture is averaging out 1.3-1.6 you do the math... they simply plan on out breeding us in our own countries crazy but true that is the jihadist for you. just look at the numbers islam will take over the western world in 50 years europe is just now waking up. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0HTSwUig2-0&feature=related

Hey blackbloc. Good afternoon.

All that I can really say is this: And you did not see this coming??

The original protesters were simply used by other groups to open the can and now someone else will eat the caviar - I will go so far as to state - those fish eggs are not going to look very pretty to the people watching.

[-] 0 points by blackbloc (-19) 2 years ago

well i was hoping since people under 30 make up such a large part of the country, and since the students tend to be liberal and even secular and democratic that they would win... guess not ; (.

[-] 0 points by ronjj (-241) 2 years ago

blackbloc

Since when does being under 30, liberal and secular constitute any real wisdom in matters like this?? These things take brains not MOMENTS.

[-] 0 points by blackbloc (-19) 2 years ago

secular liberals are the educated hence the ones with brains duh.

[-] 0 points by ronjj (-241) 2 years ago

blackbloc - hi again

You really need to get real about life man.

Tell me anything about the world that is important and that is not a mere regurgitation of some facts, that you DID NOT learn in kindergarten and you will have a much better picture of what your education is really worth.

Brains and education are in no way related in real life. And I can only assume that being secular means that in some way you piss in a different pot than I do.

You make one good comment that really proves your point, however, that being "duh" a real sign of education and brains to me.

[-] 0 points by blackbloc (-19) 2 years ago

being secular means keeping religion out of government. apparently you don't even know that duh

[-] 0 points by ronjj (-241) 2 years ago

If that was your example in response to the question you would get a (-) on your report card in the area marked "ability to get along with others"

Is this a problem that you actually have had since kindergarten or did it develop later in life, and more importantly is it beginning to affect your personal relationships today. We can get you help, you know.

[-] 0 points by blackbloc (-19) 2 years ago

you really do fancy yourself as intelligent don't you... but you come across like most people of your ilk as misinformed and misled... too bad you almost wasted 70 years of your life serving your money masters... one thing you and your ilk still fail to grasp is this is the internet chat not grad school so using duh to mock you is completely acceptable duh..

[-] 0 points by ronjj (-241) 2 years ago

And in my backroom so is "digeese bilagonna" so get over it.

And if it makes any difference to you, I did technically attend grad school but it was on-the-job grad school and I have the record from my playground. all the way to the halls of Congress to prove that schooling and what I learned during those 70 years.

What is your particular claim to fame that makes you a "fool maker"??

[-] 0 points by blackbloc (-19) 2 years ago

futue te ipsum!

[-] 0 points by ronjj (-241) 2 years ago

Great, you should be able to bank on that and have a successful life and a one of prosperity also. Hope you are enjoying it.

[-] 0 points by blackbloc (-19) 2 years ago

i always do

[-] 0 points by ronjj (-241) 2 years ago

Can't figure out who the short guy is that you refer to. I am 5'11' and you?? or is that your claim to fame??

[-] 0 points by TIOUAISE (2526) 2 years ago

It AIN'T over yet... How you underestimate our Egyptian brothers and sisters! Besides, the "Muslim Brotherhood" is NOT fanatical or narrow-minded. They are divided amongst themselves and will have to work with the secularists. If they do a poor job, the people will kick them out at the next election.

It's the U.S.-FUNDED EGYPTIAN ARMY that will be the REAL challenge, but the brave men and women of Egypt have proven that YES THEY CAN - and in their case, unlike our laughable Emperor Oblabla, they truly WALK THE TALK.

I disagree. I am human, therefore fallible - and that's OK because we all are.

[-] 0 points by blackbloc (-19) 2 years ago

are you insane no liberal egyptian supports the muslim brotherhood that is why the protesters are so outraged now because of the military clamp down they feel that the muslim brotherhood is taking advantage because the protesters votes are being repressed. the muslim brotherhood is a radical terrorist fundamental islamist organization make no mistake about that... how are you so ignorant about world events and the current situation???

[-] 0 points by ronjj (-241) 2 years ago

Please blackbloc:

If you have been around these forums for any length of time you would realize that you are posting to "TIOUAISE" and that is not a compliment from me regarding her.

Look around at the bottom of your computer screen - those loose screws are not from your monitor.

[-] 0 points by blackbloc (-19) 2 years ago

lol

[-] 0 points by TIOUAISE (2526) 2 years ago

Does my disagreeing with you make me "insane"? You certainly are quick to call the men in the white coats... But be careful, they might take you instead of me, especially if they see your punctuation..:)

You write "the muslim brotherhood is a radical terrorist fundamental islamist organization" : that sounds exactly like the hate speech being peddled on the Internet by ISLAMOPHOBES.

ISLAMOPHOBIA is a sickness of the soul, just as grievious as ANTISEMITISM. You're not an islamophobe, are you?

Personally I am on the side of the Coptic Christians and their beliefs where are really the onces being threatened by this great movement in Egypt.

You have only addressed two groups so far - where do you stand reagarding the Coptic Christians in this situation?? or are you anit-Christian ( as you would ask )??

[-] 0 points by blackbloc (-19) 2 years ago

you are funny you do realize what ever you think you know is in fact bullshit right... now i am an islamophobe because i judge this organization on the facts... would you like me to list for you the various statements and actions by this terrorist organization????

[-] 1 points by OLLAG (84) 2 years ago

Muslim brothers and sisters? hahahaha.

Do you have any idea what they are protesting. Unlike you who are protesting jobs and economy.

[-] 0 points by TIOUAISE (2526) 2 years ago

blackbloc writes: "you do realize what ever you think you know is in fact bullshit right" : are you talking to ME, blackbloc, or in fact blabbering to yourself?

I think I'll pass on your offer... I have more reliable, "non-hate-spewing" sources. May you be freed of your hatreds and find peace.

SALAAM SHALOM PEACE
