Do you believe that the turmoil and strife in Egypt right now is the fault of the U.S., the Egyptians, or some other group or individual? How do you think it the U.S. should respond, if at all? Regardless, may peace break out over Egypt and may life return to "normal" at the earliest possible time. My thoughts are with this wonderful nation of people with such a rich and proud history.

Perhaps also the world's countries all expect us to bail them out any time they have trouble without pay or thanks. Perhaps that's why we're struggling to keep our heads above water financially with our enormous debt pool.
But, pardon, I still don't understand your point of view. The US didn't start civil wars in Egypt, which doesn't seem to have anything to do with oil, which we have enough of anyway. We provide military and financial aid when asked by our allies.
When a country wants to help it doesn't provide military services to other countries.This is not a way to prevent a war.Please don't misunderstand me because I like USA and the people who live there, however I don't like your government's decisions.
kategidascy, this is troubling--I adore Egypt and its peoples! But... How would ANY other country who provided military services to other countries cause civil war (war in the factions inside Egypt)? I'm just trying to understand, not offend, you.
No country has done anything! (openly). However people don't feel very well when another country's army is inside their country and it doesn't make things better. This is more for American interest than for saving the people of Egypt.
OH! I'm stupid, I finally understand: you're saying that American troops were in Egypt. Wow, that's news to me (with the exception of a small force for protecting embassies). I see where you're coming from now! Peace and apologies for the confusion!
Wow! I'm speechless! Excellent commentary and insight--you've voiced what many of us are thinking. Thank you for your response! I especially love your line, "Lady Liberty may mock us someday." I wonder if she already is... Let freedom ring!
