What’s Happening in the Middle East?

For those who believe that the demonstrations in Egypt are about the desire for liberty and freedom, go back and watch Katie Couric talk about unicorns and rainbows…  this uprising is about poor people fed up with an aristocracy and spiteful of not having enough money to pay for simple staples such as milk.  Naturally, Obama and company are clueless.   Some pertinent comments from an editorial writer in Israel:

How can it be that Bush’s America understood the problem of repression in the Arab world, but Obama’s America ignored it until last week? How can it be that in May 2009, Hosni Mubarak was an esteemed president whom Barack Obama respected, and in January 2011, Mubarak is a dictator whom even Obama is casting aside? How can it be that in June 2009, Obama didn’t support the masses who came out against the zealot Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, while now he stands by the masses who are coming out against the moderate Mubarak?
