      If you are willing to give a pass to despots and their supporters then we'll end up with countless more killing fields, gas chambers, genocides, ethnic cleansings and so on.  At some point we have to stop giving despots and their followers a pass.  That goes for both here and abroad.  

      We sit here and ridicule, deride and fight (figuratively) the braindead GOP voters for going against their own best interests and electing assholes Scott Walker.  We do everything we can to stop and thwart fundamentalist assholes from imposing their wills in Texas and North Carolina.  Why and how is it any different than the Egyptian people rising up against Morsi and his followers?  We can't sit here and say the GOP and the efforts of a vocal and radical minority to impose their extremist agenda on the majority of the people is wrong and yet at the same time say it's ok if Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood do it in Egypt.  

      It's called being consistent.

        place to determine what should happen in Egypt. The fact that you clearly take it upon yourself to do so, is dictatorial in character.

          When I take up any arms in the fight then you can talk stupid shit like that.  

          Frankly you trying to squelch me for having an opinion on the matter that is contrary to your own smacks far more of of dictatorial authoritarian bullshit than my opinion.
