    Real simple. Cut off their foreign aid and let them hate us for free. Let's see how they do without taxpayer funded U.S. "assistance"...

    All of a sudden McCain is the boss of the president? Does having your rear end kicked by a guy in an election 5 years ago make you the boss of him? How does that work?

    McCain is a bitter old man who lost to the black guy. Egypt requires 3/4 of a $ bil/mo to feed its people. It does not produce enough food petro etc to sustain itself. W/o our support Egypt has a hungry population. We own him, he knows it. McCain should fade away with whatever legacy he still has, rather than continuing to act like a silly old fool

    @martydotcom so we should just keep the money pump on and let Morsi turn Egypt into a totalitarian fundamentalist Islamic state like Iran? Are you really so anti-GOP that common sense doesn't even get a nod if it comes from that direction?

    @Capt_Morgan02 This isnt a R or D issue. tell me your long term plan to deal with Israel who no incentive to compromise: :Abbas who is too weak to compromise; Hamas who has no desire to compromise. Morsi who supports Hamas and Hezbollah and Iran but can't survive w/o us. Please give me your plan

    @martydotcom Israel shouldn't compromise anything that leaves it indefensible. We certainly shouldn't be propping up countries that are funding terrorists and radical Islamists. Either they work with us to bring stability or we cut the cord. If and when a pro American majority is in power, we reinstate some assistance with express conditions on how it is to be used and what will get it cut off again.

    Barack Obama studied the Mozlem brother culture scholar in Madrassa in Indonesia and loved the Jihadist culture will never stand up to the Mozlem brother dictators including Ahmadinajad of the Iranian regime and Morsi of the Egypt. Mozlem Brother Dictators always taking power of dictators over their people with lies and deceit and empty promises. Morsi was emboldened by Obama and praised by Hillary for telling Hamas to stop launching Fajr 5 missiles to Israel after Morsi helped in bringing the lethal Iranian missiles from Egypt through the tunnels of Gaza. Obama knew that Morsi is going to make himself a ruthless brutal dictator but he continue lie to the American people about his silent support of Morsi and he keeps his silence. Furthermore, Obama continues behind our backs to finance Mors's war against the Egyptian liberals, women and Christians that will lose their rights under the Shariya laws and become sub humans based on the Mozlem brother culture of oppression and death.

    Yes he should call this Muslim Brotherhood member up and remind him how much money the USA gives him. But, I doubt he will do so. I believe that he and/or Hillary gave him reason to believe that he could make this move now. Barack Husssein Obama has done everything in his power to leave the Middle East and let the Muslim Extremists rule as they please.

    You have no idea what goes on behind the scenes. What you demand has in fact been said publicly by Hilary. "We provide assistance and expect our money to go to the advancement of Democracy". THAT is exactly what she said. And beyond a public statement like that there is wheels churning or they won't make such a statement. We didn't overthrow Murak. The Egyptian people and the Egyptian Military did. And buddy the Egyptian Military still rules Egypt. If this guy reaches too far their Military will chop him off in an instant. You're just ranting.

    @jessejaymes No, you are the one ranting...I made a statement about what I believe. And, don't assume anyone does not know what you "claim to know." I was working in Egypt before you knew much about it, probably. I understand more about the Islamists than you think I do. I listen to the same news you do...unless you are carrying Hillary's luggage you don't know any more.

    @seedtick Let's see if we can narrow this down shall we? According to you GOP = Good DEM = Bad. That about cover it in your world?

    @jessejaymes Well, suprise-surprise....I'm a lifelong Democrat. Albeit a very conservative one, but still a Democrat. So, let's put it this way, Liberal = bad and Conservative = good....but, the ultras on either side are purely worthless to anyone but themselves.

    @seedtick Well surprise, surprise, I'm a lifelong Republican turned Libertarian and John McCain is out of line. And you sound very much like an far right wing extremist.

    As someone who once was a huge McCain supporter and in fact worked for him when he ran against GW Bush and lost I have to question if Mr McCain has lost his mind. Starting with Silly Sarah and to this latest outburst, he can't seem to stop himself from jumping into the fire on virtually everything. He made a damn fool of himself with the Rice Accusations and has had to walk that one back so he immediately jumps again. I don't like Islam. I don't like Christianity for that matter. I don't believe that us trying to buy our friends works at all. I would cut foreign aid by 90% and demand oversight of what we do spend immediately. But that's another conversation. Today John McCain has become a raving lunatic. And as one of his old time believers this is very sad to see.

    I campaigned for him too. I questioned his choice in Sarah Plain, she is not Vice Pres.
    material, however, she is very pretty and has a rather weak voice, and so has to scream to be heard and then sounds screechy. I will always admire and have great respect for John McCain...I could not have survived a week under POW conditions, the man survived for six years, he is, and always will be a Hero to me..even if/ when he does
    lose his mind.(:

    @mimi57 John McCain will always own a a soft spot in my heart for what he sacrificed for America. I just think he needs to retire before he loses that image to others. He's not doing anyone any good right now and I can't figure out what his purpose in all this is?
  • #34

    @jessejaymes You may be right...maybe he wants to feel "useful", but sometimes it's
    better to leave.. Reminds me of a song.(:

    @mimi57 McCain was once the most common sense Senator in Washington. What he is doing now is what I call "Flaming politics". Raising hell just to be raising hell. Whoever is the titular head of Egypt is only there through the grace of the Egyptian Military. McCain knows this. He's been on top of the power structure of the world for decades now. He knows this is isn't how things are done. You publicly embarrass the "new guy" an he'll run to our enemies even faster. Better to work behind the scenes and see how the Egyptian Military is sorting this all out.

    @mimi57 if he wants to feel useful, maybe he should take his grandchildren to the park on sundays and teach them how to throw a ball and fly a kite. maybe he should learn his way around the kitchen and help them make special treats. maybe he could even become a cub scout pack leader or den mother. that should keep him busy.

    i have several friends who survived being a pow... on in particular was kept in a hole in the ground for three years... with two broken knees for which he never received medical treatment until being one of the last freed from the 'hanoi hilton' after the end of the war. a survivor? certainly... a hero, not at all, and certainly not the sort of material we need in politics.

    Every time McCain opens his mouth it proves how smart the American people were in 2008. He's become a bitter and cranky old man that gets his thrills by mouthing off about issues he knows little about. He needs to be wheeled off into the sunset. Or at least have someone set up an account on Politix for him.

    It is very important right now that the US not be seen as clumsily trying to affect the outcome of the revolutionary process in Egypt. Anyway, the Egyptian people seem to be taking care of it. Revolutions are generally a messy business, and this one is not over yet.

    @CanisCanemEdit Due to sanctions Iran's economic situation is fragile at best. They cannot feed the Egyptian people
    Desire and reality are two different things
    Egyptian Pres. has his hands full with judiciary. A populace unable to buy food assures his demise. In short, at
    he moment we own him.

    OK we withhold aid, president gets thrown out. Keep in mind he was elected. Egypt in chaos, Hamas has no one watching their actions or weapons import. Hezbollah leaps in from Lebanon both attack Israel what's your plan now?

    @martydotcom
    make some popcorn and watch Israel pound Hezbollah back to the stone age in one week or less.?

    @woodtick57 and then what have they won?
    Don't confuse Hezbollah with Hamas. Hezbollah (Lebanon) has been armed unimpeded by Iran and via Syria Soviet missiles capable of destroying every airfield Jerusalem, Tel Aviv & Haifa. The former slam dunk with minimal damages & loss of life is not what it used to be.

    @joyshusband you're not naive enough to think a population accustomed to eating is going to keep a feeble government in place that can't keep food on the shelves. Military
    will not defend him they'll grab power and we own them

    This is exactly what Barry wants over there. The Muslim brotherhood in total control. He'll never condemn the behavior. He's trying to figure out how to do it here in the states.
