    It is pitiful that Obama does not make a more deffinet stand. Marbarack has put his people in jeprody over and over with toltarian cruel punishment.
    Yes, America send over a billion dollars a yea to Egyptr, But according to the press there only spends 250 million on the Egyptian people.
    Same in Haitii so much relief never gets to the people. They have to dictatt when money is given where it directly goes to and if not "NO MORE MONEY"
    And, weapons, jets, and tear gas now used on its own people? Supplied by Americans? Unfreaking believable. I would rather see them get tractors, well, and have some direct funding with people who can get directly to the people.
    We should back only the people of that country not the dictators. Tell this Mubarak his days are ended and get out..
    Good leaders do not live in palaces and pomp and glory no more than their poorest citizens. Most politiicians in all countries merely exploit the humans of their countries.
