Egypt is not ours to have or to lose. Egyptians lost Egypt because they are so damn stupid. Stupid with Islam. Stupid with ignorance. Stupid with hate to Israel. Stupid with hate to the U.S.A. I have no sympathy for the Egyptian people. They are dumb as stumps and are going to start paying the price for it.

I concur with your view on this. Although I fear the Islamic rising around the world and its impact on my own country, I am tired of worrying about the people of these other countries. America has shed enough blood and treasure for that bunch "over there". Always the same nonsense - religion and hatred. Nothing ever changes, and America always gets kicked in the teeth. The Egyptians were hell bent on bring this change about. Live with it and please shut up about it. I want no further news stories about how unhappy the "youth" in Egypt are. I won't get any either, because the media is now all Islamic, all the time.

Pay attention...

In 1949, the Communist takeover of China rattled the US foreign policy establishment to its core. China's fall to Communism was correctly perceived as a massive strategic defeat for the US. The triumphant Mao Zedong placed China firmly in the Soviet camp and implemented foreign policies antithetical to US interests.

For the American foreign policy establishment, China's fall forced a reconsideration of basic axioms of US foreign policy. Until China went Red, the view resonant among foreign policy specialists was that it was possible for the US to peacefully coexist and even be strategic allies with Communists.

With Mao's...
