And More Blather

I don’t know that I am really qualified to say what our reaction should be to the events in Egypt. Many are saying that we should openly support the protestors, and I’m sympathetic to that concept but don’t really agree with it because I don’t believe this country’s government should be taking official positions regarding the internal affairs of other nations.

The one thing I’m pretty sure of is that with street riots occurring, the army in the street, and with military jets and helicopters overflying the cities, it sounds absolutely inane for our Secretary of State to be babbling about a “peaceful transition to democracy” in that country.

I am a bit leery of what will come after the chaos.

So am I, which doesn't mean that I think we should be interfering.

we should have learned our lesson in Iraq and others... And tell HRC to put a sock in it.
