I am going to tell you the truth about the so-called "Arab spring": First, the "Arab spring" as a force for democracy and peace in Egypt seems to me to be a fraud.
The dictator and his entourage who were kicked out in Egypt were pro-West, a bit restrained on Israel, open to free enterprise, and resistant to Iranian-sponsored terror.
Now what? Egypt is now rapidly becoming anti-Israel, pro-Iran, pro Hamas, and very far from being pro-human rights.
The most potent of the political forces in Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood, hates the United States, loathes Israel, condemns the killing of bin Laden (whom they praised as a martyr), and have been wedded to terror for their entire existence.
They will probably take over Egypt completely sooner or later.
And as the terrorist government of Syria cracks down on its own people, the U.N. Security Council does exactly nothing about it.
When the dust settles, Iran is going to own the Middle East.
There is a gigantic coup by Iran taking place. We are doing very little, if anything, to stop it.
