Why are they in war mode? (egypt military)
While this is not directed at me I would like to answer (my view, im not answering / speaking for the person you asked the question to).
When we discuss Middle East Issues on this site there is a, blurp for lack of a better word, that always shows up on the radar.
There seems to be a mindset that people in the Middle East cannot think for themselves. Anytime Arabs go against their own governments its viewed as
being incited by outsiders. There is no credit given to the Arabs for taking a stand and wanting change. Instead they are attacked and accused of
working for Israel / US / West / NATO, which then takes the conversation into those entities coupled with speculation.
I point this out to prove a minor point, in that they always accuse the same groups of countries. They ignore ARAB countries who are involved in those
same actions they condemn the west for, they also ignore China and Russia, who supported the action in Libya. Before people try and argue that point
look at the offical vote.
If Arabs rise up against their government and demand freedom they are labeled terrorists / traitors and MUST be working for the west because apprently
no loyal Arab would go aginst their government.
If Arabs rise up against their government and demand freedom they MUST be incited by the west because no loyal arab would challenge their government
on their own.
If Arabs rise up against their government and hold their own, they MUST be getting help from the west.
Its sad how Arabs are labeled and viewed by certain groups within that realm. Apparently, in their views (not directed at the posters here) Arabs are
to stupid to do anything for themselves, let alone determine their own futures.
