Is this what Obama wanted for our U.S. ally? Mubarek defends himself in a cage at his death penalty trial
So this is what happens to you if you are a loyal ally of the United States when Barack Obama is President. The U.S. turns on you. You then end up in a kangaroo court show trial. You are then hanged by the neck until dead.
The 83-year-old Hosni Mubarak is now lying in a bed in a cage as his trial is being broadcast on national Egyptian TV. Either way, Mubarek looks like he’s on death’s doorstep.
Mubarek was far from being an ideal leader. But except for Israel, Mubarek was America’s best ally in the Middle East. Now he’s on trial for murdering the 800 anti-Mubarek protesters.
But that’s a big part of what governments do, including our own — kill people. Our government has certainly killed a lot of people (including innocent civilians) during the past decade in Iraq and Afghanistan. So should our Presidents be put on trial?
Mubarek’s trial in a cage and coming execution will certainly make it very tough to convince dictators and strongmen to exit power in the future — if this is what happens to them. Not that Mubarek was even a dictator by Middle East standards.
No wonder Muammar Gaddafi is fighting to the death to avoid this fate.
Obama’s foreign policy is so misguided, so incompetent that it borders on criminal. Who in their right mind would would to be an ally of the United States after this?
