    Media mogul Rupert Murdoch is under fire for weighing in on the violence cascading throughout the Middle East on his Twitter account, where he implied that President Obama should have more influence with the Egyptians he helped put into power.

    “Can’t Obama stop his friends in Egypt shelling Israel?” the News Corp. chief wrote from his verified Twitter account.

    “Middle East ready to boil over any day. Israel position precarious. Meanwhile watch CNN and AP bias to point of embarrassment,” he asserted.

    Israel has been under attack from all sides for the past four days, facing hundreds of rockets from Gaza, skirmishes on the Syrian border, and now rockets from extremists in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula as well.

    The Egyptian government was arguably the most significant transfer of power during the so-called “Arab Spring,” when President Obama supported what appeared to be the youth of Egypt calling for freedom from longtime leader Hosni Mubarak, but ended with Islamists controlling the government.
  2. Five years from now Egypt will look a lot like Iran. Islamists will dominate every aspect of Egyptian life.
  3. It's their state, if that is what they choose, that is what they choose.

    It could even look worse. And, If Iran gets nukes, Egypt will get nukes.
  5. It's not what they choose, it's what they will be forced to live with.

    Do you think women "choose" to be treated as the property of men?


    Three dozen universities across the country are not allowing women to study in 77 different majors, according to the Shafaf news website and Mehr News.


    Regular officers and members of the "morality police" raided 87 cafes and restaurants in a single district of the capital Tehran on Saturday and arrested women for flouting the Islamic dress code, according to the Iranian Students' News Agency (ISNA).
  6. It's not our business. The End.
  7. Only nukes are our business, not the people?
  8. Clear and present danger to our national interest is our business. Nothing else.

    America has fought for human rights the world over for at least the last 100 years. If you want to close your eyes then you needn't read this thread anymore nor post about it.
  10. A typical Glenn Beck type exaggeration. What is the fate of those countries we have "liberated"?
