    Yes, who needs women’s rights? Why shouldn’t a government change the constitution to impose religious fundamentalism? And if the people object, it’s the army’s job to prop up the regime, not to help peacefully try new elections!

    Signe doesn’t want to deviate from her simplistic agenda. They acted against an elected person, and that is WRONG and the military are the BAD guys.

    WE need the aid here in the US. The only people the aid goes to now are the jerks at the top of those countries who line their pockets at the expense of their own people and US taxpayers.

    You will be surprised to know that this DOES deviate from my simplistic agenda! I would be in jail under a government run unchecked by the Muslim Brotherhood or their more radical counterparts elsewhere. Ive been picketed and denounced by angry Muslim readers for numerous cartoons on their treatment of women and dissenters. Still, if we believe in democratic elections, we’ve got to grapple with the fact that this one has gone haywire. Signe

    The issue is that all these countries know the money spout will just keep on giving. Cutting off a few countries and cutting aid in half to a few more will cost less and give us a lot more leverage.

    Graple, yes. But your toon doesn’t invite “graple” it invites absolutism.
    .
    I understand that it presents a particular POV, but only states the symptom of the “problem” it shows no course through the issue.
    .
    IIUC, the issue is that (in general) the rural folks want a right wing, repressive government of a fundie type and the Urban folks want a more left ish style of government that embraces the western ideals of a 21st century sensibility.
    .
    Yeah, we’re for the latter (at least those of us who prefer this in our country) and that should be our stance, rather than the “simple” doctrine of “Democracy” as defined by presidential elections (which the right in this country don’t even agree with, see the 2000 [s]election).
    .
    In much of the world, our form of government just won’t work! Look at the math, in reality it doesn’t even work here. In this country we have senators for life that hold senior positions of power even though they come from states that have less total population than other states have in a single congressional district!
    .
    Now, what if China had a representative for each 125,000 people. Their “House of Representatives” would have 10,750. If they had our maximum 435 then each one would represent 3.1 million people. In each case, representation is nigh on impossible.
    .
    Point being, absolutism is the hobgoblin of stultified minds.

    @jack75287

    Yeah, because China isn’t out there, just looking to buy friends and influence policies!
    .
    Then, when China has such control guys like you can pitch and mown about how statist liberal socialists sold us down the river to the commies.
    .
    It is astounding just how blind you guys can be!

    Ok so what is your solution sounds to me between your two points between me and swilkins, your own opinions have forced you into inaction and inaction solves very little. Neither did I say cut off all the funding, it is cheaper than a war, but just keep handing it out to thugs who are heads of state, in itself is inaction.

    That is where the Left loses to the Right, we honestly have more options than the you. As for your 21 Century sensibilities such values were created in a pop culture and pop culture can take it away when the debt causes a lot of people to have empty stomachs, how important will your sensibilities be then.

    The military have been running things behind-the-scenes since Egypt stopped being a British protectorate.
    -
    The USA doesn’t want to lose Egypt and they really don’t care who is in charge just so they are beholding to the US and won’t threaten Israel.

    None recently because they aren’t yet ruling the country. But do not think they wouldn’t—they would and much more besides. The Bible and Christianity is against democracy and republicanism.

    Agree with Night! If the left loses to the right, why are the Repubs opposed to whichever policy Obama tries to use? Egypt? It’s a coup! Syria, Go in NOW!!!. Libya, Go in NOWWW! Oh, you want to go in? NOOO!!!
