The Dominoes Begin To Fall !!

Egypt is the second domino to fall, Tunisia was the first.They Arab world as America has perceived is about to change face and not in a good way! And now we are caught between old world dictatorships and the reality of having the Muslim Brotherhood and the Iranian fill the vacuums in the Arab governments of the Middle East!


The leader of Jordan's powerful Muslim Brotherhood warned Saturday that unrest in Egypt will spread across the Mideast and Arabs will topple leaders allied with the United States.
Hammam Saeed's comments were made at a protest outside the Egyptian Embassy in Amman, inspired by massive rallies in neighboring Egypt demanding the downfall of the country's longtime president, Hosni Mubarak.
About 100 members of the fundamentalist group and activists from other leftist organizations and trade unions chanted "Mubarak, step down" and "the decision is made, the people's revolt will remain."
Elsewhere, a separate group of 300 protesters gathered in front of the office of Jordanian Prime Minister Samir Rifai, demanding his ouster. "Rifai, it's time for you to go," chanted the group.
Jordan's protests have been relatively small in size, but they underline a rising tension with Jordan's King Abdullah II, a key U.S. ally who has been making promises of reform in recent days in an apparent attempt to quell domestic discontent over economic degradation and lack of political freedoms.
But as a monarch with deep support from the Bedouin-dominated military, Jordan's ruler is not seen as vulnerable as Mubarak or Tunisia's deposed leader. Even the Brotherhood - a fiery critic of Jordan's moderate government - has remained largely loyal to the king, who claims ancestry to Islam's Prophet Muhammad.
Many believe it's unlikely King Abdullah will bow to demands for popular election of the prime minister and Cabinet officials, traditionally appointed by the king.
Saeed said Arabs have grown disgruntled with U.S. domination of their oil wealth, military occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan and its support for "totalitarian" leaders in the region.
"The Americans and (President Barack) Obama must be losing sleep over the popular revolt in Egypt," he said. "Now, Obama must understand that the people have woken up and are ready to unseat the tyrant leaders who remained in power because of U.S. backing."
Saeed did not specifically name King Abdullah. But he said Jordan's prime minister "must draw lessons from Tunisia and Egypt and must swiftly implement political reforms."
"We tell the Americans 'enough is enough'," he said.
Rifai has in the last two weeks announced a $550 million package of new subsidies for fuel and staple products like rice, sugar, livestock and liquefied gas used for heating and cooking. It includes a raise for civil servants and security personnel.
Still, Jordan's economy struggles, weighed down by a record deficit of $2 billion this year, rising inflation and rampant unemployment and poverty.
And here we are with the most inexperienced President in history facing a world calamity. But then again he stoked this during his speech in Cairo last year, so maybe just maybe every thing is going according to his plan!!

This is one of USA's worst nightmares! The bottom line is that we, the United State's of America CANNOT allow the Muslim Brotherhood, the Iranians or Al-Quieda to come to power in Egypt. This could very well be the start of World War 3 and whatever it takes, we must win it! Hopefully, it will not come to that, there's always hope, but if hope fails, we must be ready to act with the full force and might of the United States Military and that includes the Nuclear Option!

Of course our ability to act depends upon our President and personally, I have no faith in his ability to act decisively. Obama is an appeaser of the first rank! Think Neville Chamberlain or more recently, Jimmy Carter. Perhaps he will surprise me, but I doubt it!  

If Egypt falls to  Muslim domination, how long will the Saudi Royal clan remain in power next door ? Cool

What is truth -

The Saud's are a different animal they maintain and control a very high end intelligence and oversight on the Muslim Brotherhood and anyone else who may be a risk to them usually the leaders just "disappear!

GOD FAMILY SELF COUNTRY In that order!

Every person on this Planet Earth under the Heaven's, has a right to life, liberty freedom, happiness. And any religion, or God one believe's in and has faith in. As long as one doesn't infringe on another's belief as long as the belief is peace freedom and  love of one's neighbor, as one's self. Any culture that  seperates itself from other culture's and tries to rule, or dominate other's in any way, is not the God's wishe's in any religion, or what ever God one believe's in, or has faith in. Unfortunately, in our world today, there are some cultures that break the rule of the God's, for peace and transquility for all people. and cause much hurt and sorrow among other's and the God's. Until all people come together on this planet earth and work in tranquility. Tear's from the Heavens and the Gods, like river's, will never stop flowing !...
