Bachmann’s pro-dictator policy

“He wasn’t perfect, but [former Egyptian President Hosni] Mubarak was one of the best friends that we had in the Middle East region,” Bachmann said. “When Mubarak was in trouble, where was the president? He was sitting on his hands and let Mubarak fall.”

So Bachmann would have sent U.S. troops to Egypt to defend a corrupt dictator? Bachmann and Donald Trump seem to think the American ideal is taking what you want and telling the rest of the world to fuck off.

Of thee I sing …

One response to “Bachmann’s pro-dictator policy”

  1. Well, under the “right for any reason” rule, I concur with Bachmann. Obama was nowhere to be found when Teheran was erupting and the pro-democratic forces were violently suppressed by the Iranian government in 2009. How and why are Egypt and Libya different? Oh, that’s right, Egypt is our ally.

    The Muslim Brotherhood will take control of Egypt and impose a theocratic state. Mubarak fought the Brotherhood for 30 years, and was largely responsible for keeping peace in the region. It was the Brotherhood, recall, that assassinated Anwar Sadat for effecting a peace treaty with Israel.

    We don’t get to pick and choose who we want to deal with. Pakistan since Musharref relinquished power has become destabilized and is no longer reliable. Looking at the long term consequences of events in the Middle East, it will become painfully obvious over the next decade that Obama’s foreign policy was shortsighted, naive, and not in U.S. interests.

    Israel is the canary in the coal mine for the West. My belief is that Obama’s “peculiar” (I am being kind) foreign policy will result in the U.S. throwing Israel under the bus during Obama’s inevitable second term.
