Cairo in flames and riots

Welcome to the Return of Jimmy Carter!

The scenes on television are so reminicent of 1978 Tehran.  I'm not the only one feeling this way.  Could we be seeing confirmation that we are witnessing the 2nd term of Jimmy Carter?  I have no doubt Obama will once again sit back and watch, as he did with the protests in Iran back in June of 2009.

We could very well see an overthrow of the Hosni Mubarak administration.  Then what?!?!?  A fundamentalist Caliphate government?

This is exactly what I've been afraid of (though not with Egypt - I've been more concerned with the Glenn Becks of the world railing on Saudi Arabia)  I've seen Glenn many times repeat how "the 9/11 hijackers were mostly Saudi's"  Yes... they were Saudi's .... EXILED Saudi's.  If the Mubarak regime falls that's not good... but if the Saudi family is overthrown, that is catastrophic!  Not only in the terms of Jihadists having their paws on the oil spigot, but the de-stabilizing effect it would have on the nascent democracy in Iraq, the wave of liberty spreading through Jordan, Lebannon, Lybia, and yes, Egypt.

Once again, a weak president (like Carter in '78) will be shown to have long-ranging, detrimental effects effecting the entire world!

    actually, he is doing just like Carter. helping the islamists in the name of 'democracy' but being so wishy-washy that the street level people will hate us more than they did before we 'helped'
