  •  On the issue of Mubarak though (1+ / 0-)

    I think the charge is valid

    The right liked Mubarak and was flogging the Muslim Brotherhood boogieman for quite a stretch - that not supporting Mubarak was tantamount to selling out Israel.

    But in the case of Qaddafi - no. That was all FAIL in my part.

    •  Yes.. they definitely were backing Mubarek (0+ / 0-)

      Not strongly, I think.. but their general view was, I think, that a known dictator that is an ally is somewhat better than an unknown.  They are afraid of the Muslim Brotherhood taking over the whole middle east.

      And no prob on the Qadfaffi thing.. happens to me all the time.

      And speaking of the Lockerbie bomber.. would be nice if one thing that comes out of this is to have that guy put back in prison.. but not likely.
