Obama's Bestest Pal In Cairo Flees His Pharaoic Palace As Demonstrators Battle Police

Oh, Obama.

housands of Egyptians massed in Cairo Tuesday for a march to the presidential palace to protest the assumption by the nation's Islamist president of nearly unrestricted powers and a draft constitution hurriedly adopted by his allies.

The march comes amid rising anger over the draft charter and decrees issued by Mohammed Morsi giving himself sweeping powers. Morsi called for a nationwide referendum on the draft constitution on Dec. 15.

It is Egypt's worst political crisis since the ouster nearly two years ago of authoritarian president Hosni Mubarak. The country has been divided into two camps: Morsi and his fundamentalist Muslim Brotherhood, as well as ultraconservative Salafi Islamists versus youth groups, liberal parties and large sectors of the public.

Hundreds of black-clad riot police deployed around the Itihadiya palace in Cairo's district of Heliopolis. Barbed wire was also placed outside the complex, and side roads leading to it were blocked to traffic. Protesters gathered at Cairo's Tahrir square and several other points not far from the palace to march to the presidential complex.

Remember when Obama offered some shoot-from-the-lip demands that "Mubarak must go," and quickly too?

I don't see him calling for the ouster of the Muslim Brotherhood tyrant. He seems to like Morsi. I wonder what accounts for the difference in treatment between Mubarak and Morsi. Besides the fact that one was pro-American and secular and the other anti-American and Islamist.

Update: Some cops are apparently siding with the anti-Morsi protesters.

4 Don't you know, it's simply that they haven't *given* him the time to repress and kill people.

Once he does, and they are surprised that a duck is a duck, then they will muse about wanting him to go - but imagine how much instability it will make!

11 Besides the fact that one was pro-American and secular and the other anti-American and Islamist.

When talking about Obama you have to make sure to couch everything in terms of how it reflects on Obama personally.

Obama told Mubarak to scram because he wanted to sound like a strong world leader who could unseat dictators with only his words.

Obama supported Morsi and the MB because he wanted to be seen as a diplomat, helping to aid in the creation of a fledgling new democracy.

Now that Morsi is proving to be every bit the tyrant we all knew he would be, Obama will say and do nothing. If he did anything it would undercut his previously cultivated image as a statesman and a leader.

It really has nothing to do with religion or American allegiance; those are just gravy. It's all about what makes Obama feel like a super special snowflake.

104 On the Superman thing, I'm pretty sure the plot of the new Superman movie is the same plot as Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Well, with some modifications, but in broad strokes I think they're the same.

Gen Zod and his two buddies show up on earth, and proceed to terrorize the US/World and blame Superman for it. The government decides to detain/exile him and, since he's "The Good Guy" he doesn't actually say, "Fuck that shit, I'm fucking Superman, and if they want a piece of me, they can come take it."

Sadly, in the comics, Luther is much like the MFM's caricature of Romney. FWIW.

Seriously, if Luthor were a Republican, he'd have a withering press and be treated like the charicature of Nixon (all comic book writers are living in 1973).

But a Democrat Luthor would actually work. I'm thinking a Huey Long type, you wouldn't even have to go the full Obama. He'd be populist and the poor would love him from their squalor. He'd blame Superman for every problem with the world, either for what Superman does or didn't do.

But if Luthor were a Republican, the media would treat Superman like the real Jesus.

Fair enough.

Revolutions that 'succeed' (read, aren't put down hard) usually have an organized actor stepping into a power vacuum and assuming control. When this does not entirely happen--or when a winning coalition sours--you see infighting like we have now. This is the most common template--France, Russia, et al. It's unusual for the organized party to immediately take up and hold power after the old regime is gone--America and (of all places) Iran are outliers in that regard.

Egypt is much more on the standard script so far, rather than the quick one. Given that the 'standard script' usually goes revolution-civil unrest-wars of conquest, you can see the problem...

199 Revolutions that 'succeed' (read, aren't put down hard) usually have an organized actor stepping into a power vacuum and assuming control. When this does not entirely happen--or when a winning coalition sours--you see infighting like we have now. This is the most common template--France, Russia, et al. It's unusual for the organized party to immediately take up and hold power after the old regime is gone--America and (of all places) Iran are outliers in that regard.

I think the Muslim Brotherhood are very similar to the Bolsheviks - they're mean, organized, and want to rule. They aren't going to accept defeat.

The question is if there are enough elements in Egypt to oppose them. A civil war seems inevitable.

Sphinx in the hope of controlling the flood cycle, which wouldresult in
a successful harvest. Outraged by this blatant show of devotion, Saim
al-Dahr destroyed the nose and was later executed for vandalism."

253 Tens of thousands of Jews in Greater Arabia were thrown out in 1948. For example, Iraq had about 150,000 Jews in '48. They're down to about 10 now. The Persian Jewish community was famous for the beauty of their women. Starting with Esther, I guess. (I met one once over whom I am still drooling over 30 years later.)
I haven't read the Steyn piece, but I faintly recall another by someone else about "the last Jew in Samarkand". Yehudi Menuhin, the fabulous violinist, was an Indian Jew. The Mumbai terror attacks in '08 included the torture, murder, and desecration of the Rabbi of a Chabad House, and his wife.
They don't call it a diaspora for nothing, I guess.

No, they would not be worth the grandour. In another century they were builders, engineers, mathmaticians some of the greatest minds the world had to offer.

I wonder if they ever look at themselves with shame.

I forgot about Patti Smith. She's good.

279 274 No, they don't at all OSP. Modern Egyptians are very aware that they are a completely different people-group than the pyramid builders. This, coupled with the fatalism of islam does a lot to explain why they're not terribly interested in Egypt's historical treasures except ss money makers.

280 Now you've got me time traveling to the 80s when her and Lita Ford were together..
I'll be in my bunk

Lita was actually straight and married with 2 kids, but her husband turned out to be an abusive asshole, so maybe she's ghey now.

Here's a pic of her (in her teens) and her parents, who look like they'd feel right at home among the Moron Horde: http://tinyurl.com/b3qkklo

If I'm not mistaken, the Coptic Christians are the only remnant of the ancient Egyptians. The rest of the population consists of the descendants of Arab Muslim invaders.

If Morsi Obama orders the Army to fire, will they?



That's really the only question that needs to be answered.
