When Sara Palin Talks Foreign Policy… The Tea Party Shouldn’t Listen
2011 Mike Church
Hi folks its Mike Church with todays Church Doctrine
There you go again, Ronald Reagan famously told Jimmy Carter and the next time Sara Palin decides to weigh in on our Empires warfare state, Tea Party patriots should say the same thing there you go again. Palin is apparently not happy with Obamas handling of the American created and sponsored uprising in Egypt. We need to know what it is that America stands for so we know who it is America will stand with Mrs Palin said.
Well lets see, America stands for forking over $80 billion to the current Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak, this is hush money paid him for keeping the peace with Israel. Well thats great but what else have we purchased for that $80 billion? Well according to the Pew Research Center by the count of 95 – 2 Egyptians says Islam should play a large role in Egyptian politics. Our wealth transfer to Mubarak has also earned us an 82% disapproval rating. Wow, we are just slightly more popular in Egypt that Pelosis Congress was here and a full 20% of Egyptians say that suicide bombings are at least sometimes A-O-K.
Now we have made similar bargains with other Mid-Eastern dictators whose people share similar views so it seems the answer to Palins query is America should shut down our losing investment there while shutting off the rhetoric that supports it.
