this discussion should be about what is happening there right now. there are people from many walks of life there. we do not want to embrace the idea that they are expendable because of world view, because there are many world views there, not just one, and because we are supposed to adapt a loving view of our fellow humans, even if they don't love us, because anything less is not productive. to pick one out to condemn would not be revealing enough either, and as a result, would give a false impression of the contents of their country.

it is also extremely important to remember that at this very moment, they are hungry. millions of egyptians are going hungry. if we suddenly join the bandwagon that they are expendable, millions of people would die. you do not want that on your conscience.

Then go ahead and prove me wrong, stop using ad-hominem for a defence.

Show me where in my post, in context, I was hate filled or bigoted please? No, then please refrain from name calling.

I'll debate you on ANY aspect of Islam if you so desire. I'll expose it all as a massive sham, death cult religion.

The President tells the media "to behave?" The Executive Branch is in charge of the press now? What kind of pressure do they have on the press? Can they get members fired or killed or something? Or put in prison under The Patriot Act?

They have been reading the press emails, they can ruin a persons life, yes.

I know, it is completely retarded and backwards - we are supposed to be making law from the bottom up, not the top down, in other words -

Citizens are supposed to be giving input based on their experiences and how they would like their lives to improve, and that is supposed to go through congress and the executive branch - and the press is supposed to expose corruption -

Instead, we have the executive branch telling congress and the press what to do, and therefore the people, who, instead of having quality lives, are used as batteries (like in The Matrix) for corporate machines.
