Humpty Obumpty And
The Arab Spring

by Spengler - June 1st, 2011 - Asia Times

I've been warning for months that Egypt, Syria, Tunisia and other Arab oil-importing countries face a total economic meltdown (see Food and failed Arab states, Feb 2, and The hunger to come in Egypt, May 10). Now the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has confirmed my warnings.


"Should we be borrowing money from China to turn around and give it to the Muslim Brotherhood?" Sarah Palin asked on May 27.

"Now, given that Egypt has a history of corruption when it comes to utilizing American aid, it is doubtful that the money will really help needy Egyptian people. Couple that with the fact that the Muslim Brotherhood is organized to have a real shot at taking control of Egypt’s government, and one has to ask why we would send money (that we don't have) into unknown Egyptian hands," the former Republican vice-presidential candidate added.

What is interesting is that Sarah Palin repeatedly reacts with intelligent responses to issues that arise. Those who claim she is "inexperienced" never seem able to explain how she can rapidly explain the same rational strategy that serious intellectual conservatives agree address these same issues. Just luck according to Republican leaders. She seems especially annoying to the moderate Republicans who seem just as willing as the Democrats to send the American taxpayer's hard earned money to countries and peoples who hate us. Moderate Republicans are also just as quick as Democrats to smear Palin. Why is that? Especially since she was known as a good partner with both moderates and Democrats when she was Governor. There was a reason she had an 80% popularity rating!
