No wonder Obama was so eager to knife our key ally Mubarak in the back to help the Arab Spring bloom in Egypt â€” it’sÂ a lot like Hope & Change: Â (Moonbattery)
Many disillusioned Egyptians say things are worse than ever. Thugs often run the streets,Â crime rates have skyrocketed, and police feel they’reÂ outgunned, faced with the flood of weapons filling Cairo’s streets.

The U.S. believes that the southwest corner of Libya is now attracting Islamist fighters from Ansar al Dine and al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb who fled from Mali. In Libya, these groups are blending with local militant groups, including members of Ansar al Sharia, which the U.S. implicated in the 2012 attacks on U.S. outposts in Benghazi, in eastern Libya.Â ….As A Result Of “Liberated” LibyaÂ (Hugh Fitzgerald)
You couldn’t make this up: As thousands of people in large swathes of the planet, including war-torn Syria, are dying daily for lack of adequate medical care, the one geographic area whose “health conditions” are slated forÂ condemnationÂ at the World Health Organization’s annual conference is, naturally, “the occupied Palestinian territory, including east Jerusalem, and in the occupied Syrian Golan.”
What makes this surreal isn’t just that the above areas enjoy far better “health conditions” than much of the rest of the world. It’s that the Palestinian Authority (Israel’s “peace partner”), together with Syria and other Arab countries, is seeking to condemn Israel at a time when it is actively providing medical services to both Palestinians and Syrians.
