[QUOTE]No....If you remember we did not take the lead on this. We waited for the Arab league to beg us via NATO to help. We/Obama was taking sh*t about Egypt, Libya and now Syria for not jumping right in. I'm good with our response to the Arab Spring uprisings. It's been extremely Hands Off. If one tyrant is replaced by another well that's the population's problem for letting it happen. As long as the new governments don't plot to kill Americans, it's OK. Plus I'm going to be positive and be happy for them. I'm not going to buy into what the fear mongers at Fox NEWS always try selling.

Now, that's funny! NIce to know that you're putting faith in an uneducated mass of rebels to determine who will lead them in a strategically important part of the world. Let's take a look at how "the people chose" their leadres after rbellion in places like: Russia, China, Iran, Libya, and my personal favorite, Cuba. They don't know or can grasp long term ideas and concepts. They're only concern is the here and now, using the preface "in the name of the people". Meanwhile, some yahoo is plotting behind eh scenes to make their meger existance ongoing, while he, and a handful of cohorts, reap the benefits of things that they deposed the previous regime over. Want proof />?ook only as far as Iraq and Afghanistan. They have rtheir "freedon", yet some of them can't stop being "brave" and secretly blowing up people set up to defend and protect them, innocent women and children just trying to,live, and soldies of the only country in the world strong enough to give them their freedom.
Here's a thoguht. Give me $1000 to invest for you. You don't need to know where or how I'll invest it, and I'll tell you how well your investment was doing at some point in the future. Would you buy into that? Ah! But if it dopesn't work out and provide you with $500 of profit, fear not. It's what YOU wanted to do.
