To the editor:
I am scratching my head attempting to figure out why the Obama administration has absolutely "no clue" when it comes to foreign policy in the Middle East.
The United States under the leadership of Obama and Hillary have opened the flood gates for extremists and the Muslim Brotherhood to take over whole countries. Now, they what to replace a "no clue" Hillary Clinton with another "no clue" Susan Rice.
I opined on Nov. 3, 2011, "What I see is this: The Islamists are using NATO and the United States to do their job for them. We are being played for fools! We are assisting them in removing the obstacles that prevented them from controlling Egypt, Tunisia and Libya."
On Nov. 30, I opined that, "Here we go again! No Clue Administration! It is reported that the White House on Nov. 22 called for an end to the "deplorable" violence in Egypt and said elections there must go forward. As I alluded to in a previous letter to the editor, Egypt is headed for Islamist rule.
Will the Obama administration call for an end to the "deplorable" violence now being played out in Egypt? Must Morsi go?
A recent and on going Egyptian poll asked the question: "Do you support President Mohamed Morsi's new constitutional decree?" A total of 81 percent voted against Morsi's attempt to elevate himself to Pharaoh. A total of 47 percent of those stated they will join protests against him. Only 10 percent voted to protest in favor of his power grab. If Morsi and the Brotherhood do not change course, civil unrest will increase and it will get ugly quick. Civil war is not out of the realm of possibility.
From reading Egyptian newspapers one can conclude that Egyptians understand far more than most Americans and our elected officials what freedom and democracy actually is. Here in the United States, Obama is well on his way to his own power grab. A sad commentary indeed!
