    I was talking about this on here a while back, and I said that I didn't think Egypt would go that route for various reasons. Looks like I was overly optimistic. Hey, if they want to become vilified pariahs and destroy their entire economy in one fell swoop, I say let 'em. Just to teach all the assholes who thought this was a wonderful revolution a fucking lesson. Bah bye, wonders of the ancient world.

    Every liberal jackass loved arguing to me that the M.B. was a "moderate" organization.

    I debated chasing the picture with "No, I'm not talking about Sting," but decided against it.

    I don't think he's defending him now, but let's not pretend that Assad was a wonderful humanitarian who just snapped. The Assads have been running Syria since 1971, and their methods haven't really changed. The only thing that changed was the level of civil pushback. But they speak good English and wear designer clothes so I guess they're cool. It's funny how these ultra lib types rail against the west, but are immediately attracted to any third world tyrant who behaves like a westerner.

    I thought compared to his father he was pretty moderate

    If I remember he is a physician by trade

    I just think if he goes what will replace him will be even worse, of course if that's he case the relationship with the Russians will also end.

    The Russian Navy has a huge interest in Syria

    His father was around for rougher times (until now. Not even his father killed these many of his own civilians. Not even close). The mechanisms of state with the militias, tortures, etc. continued full force. The only political party allowed is the Ba'ath party. You can't say shit about the regime without their approval. Bashar was the one that most likely ordered the assassination of the former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq Hariri, etc.

    So was Mengele.

    I hate when people say this. How much worse can it get? The country is acting like a go-between with Iran and Hizbullah, funneling Iranian money and weapons to terrorists, and acting as the seat of Hamas, AND it is massacring its own citizens by the tens of thousands. Not to mention the stuff I said above like International assassinations of political figures.

    I have no vested interest in him staying or leaving personally, but how can the people who lecture Israel and America and talk about the Arab spring and peace and love sit back when this is going down? Because "what will replace him will be even worse"? That's a pretty pathetic excuse.

    I think for most of the Lefties they embrace these muslims because of their latent hatred of Jews

    The one constant of Socialists from the early part of the 20the century today is their being anti Jew, some like Adolf Hitler are happy to publicly admit it while the likes of Jimmy Carter are much less vocal about it, and of course we have the collaborators like Charles Schumer.

    Europe has a cultural heritage of antisemitism dating back well over 1,000 years, and Jews were still being gassed to death there less than 70 years ago. That shit doesn't just go away.

    No point, just something I remember about him from when I was in college, before his father died and he took power.

    I edited that section. I like it better now. :)

    I believe you are correct. He also speaks very good English (I believe he studied in England). Many of the old guard of Pan Arabists sent their kids to get educated in the West. As we see in the above picture I posted, it was a tactic that paid off rather well.

    That is gonna be one tough demolition job. No way to use explosives or thermite paint because they are pretty much solid stone. It will be a piece by piece deal, and there are millions of pieces. And if the theory that they are cast of concrete is correct, they might be almost one big piece.

    I wouldn't mind seeing them get started on one of the pyramids to confuse and anger the muzzie sympathizers who can find justification and excuses for all their crazy actions. Let them watch as one of the wonders of the world is slowly demolished and see how long til they have to speak up against it.

    You're right on every level here whether it be morally or intellectually. I know he's obviously more of a thug than Sadat or Mubarak and Syria is by no means a friend to Israel or the US, probably after Iran Syria is the worst under Assad, maybe even worse for Israel because of geography. but I'm concerned about a Taliban style gov't coming to power who would be happy to have a real war with Israel (although we know it wouldn't be much of a war) as opposed to just shooting off rockets and terrorist attacks - of course I personally would prefer a real war that ends as opposed to the never ending terrorist attacks & proportional responses. You know more about the region than I ever will, I just think its better for "The West" to have a guy who will kill the citizens of his own country by the 10s of thousands to remain in power if it means a more stable world - but is often the case, I may have no idea what I'm talking about.

    And I was right again if you remember that post, I said they were up to no good with those pyramids and I believe it was you that told me that would never happen.

    The talking point will be it's our fault. Because we supported autocrats in the area, only fundamentalist anti-western arabs would become popular.

    There's always a way to blame the US.
