Arab Spring has sprung a leak

August 22, 2013 

I wish to applaud Col. General Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, Defense Minister of Egypt, for taking it to the Islamic fanatic group the Muslim Brotherhood. The Brotherhood is father of al-Qaida and is all about control and living under Islamic Sharia Law. Read the laws of Sharia, and you will say "no thanks" if you have had any taste of freedom in your life before.

That is what 70 percent of Egyptian citizens found out and demanded President Morsi of the Brotherhood be removed by the military. Now it will require a lot of bloodshed as Brotherhood followers are not much different than "Saal-Schutz" soldiers in World War II.

Look at those who supported the Brotherhood and its Arab Spring. Let's see, President Obama. Various American unions supported the Muslim Brotherhood, but what's the difference between them? It's all about control, obedience and retribution if you don't play it their way.

Obama should take a campaign swing through Egypt and find out how popular he is over there after supporting the Brotherhood and Morsi. I am sure he will draw huge crowds, but I don't think he will get the same response as he does from his hand-picked zombies at his American campaigns.

Come to think of it, Obama's lawless actions and edicts over the Constitution and the American people are very similar to Morsi and the Brotherhood.

Will this letter put me on Obama's watch list at the NSA or by the IRS? So be it.
