Update, 20-Feb. 2011:
Shiite vs. Sunni, government versus Arab, Obama his lit a raging fire of violence and rape across the entire mid-East from Iran all the way across northern Africa.
Good work, Obama. Your body count is small, so far, though; less than a thousand dead I think.
There is a small, but finite chance that this will work out positively for the civilized world; but the liklihood is indeed small, as I say again. Obama doesn’t have a clue how it will work out; he is just a progressive bomb-thrower hoping to start any trouble he can for the civilized world; regardless of the cost in human lives, and regardless of the potentialy huge economic costs.
Iranian military vessels are passing through the Suez canal for the first time in over 30 years; another bloody victory for Obama against Israel and the civilized world.
Clever Obama. A real foreign relations genius, I am sure media will explain to us.
Obama sure knows how to pick his friends!
Breaking news in the mid-East.
Obama and his Department of State led by moron Hillary Clinton have thrown a hand grenade into the mid-East tinderbox.
Secret U.S. diplomatic dispatches released by the WikiLeaks website seem to suggest that the American Embassy in Cairo was quietly aiding young Egyptian political dissidents who were plotting to overthrow President Hosni Mubarak and install a democratic government in 2011, the UK’s Telegraph is reporting.
According to the Telegraph, American embassy officials helped at least one young dissident attend a U.S.-sponsored summit for political activists in New York while simultaneously working to keep his identity secret from Egyptian state police. Upon his return to Cairo in December 2008, the activist reportedly told American diplomats that an alliance of opposition groups planned to overthrow Mubarack before the country’s 2011 national elections.
In addition, diplomatic cables published by WikiLeaks show American officials pressuring the Egyptian government to release other dissidents who had been detained by police.
Maybe one of the central motivations of Obama and Hillary was to “skyrocket” the price of oil. If so, they have succeeded dramatically.
In a secret diplomatic dispatch, sent on December 30 2008, Margaret Scobey, the US Ambassador to Cairo, recorded that opposition groups had allegedly drawn up secret plans for “regime change” to take place before elections, scheduled for September this year.
The memo, which Ambassador Scobey sent to the US Secretary of State in Washington DC, was marked “confidential” and headed: “April 6 activist on his US visit and regime change in Egypt.”
It said the activist claimed “several opposition forces” had “agreed to support an unwritten plan for a transition to a parliamentary democracy, involving a weakened presidency and an empowered prime minister and parliament, before the scheduled 2011 presidential elections”. The embassy’s source said the plan was “so sensitive it cannot be written down”.
Ambassador Scobey questioned whether such an “unrealistic” plot could work, or ever even existed. However, the documents showed that the activist had been approached by US diplomats and received extensive support for his pro-democracy campaign from officials in Washington. The embassy helped the campaigner attend a “summit” for youth activists in New York, which was organised by the US State Department.
