George W. Bush’s Naive Op-Ed defense of the Muslim Brotherhood lead Arab Spring

On 9/11 we were attacked  by Islamic terrorists. What should have been a war of retaliation and teaching Islamic nations a lesson, turned into a Leftist nation building project. We can thank our President at the time the compassionate Conservative George W. Bush for that. Rather than do his own research and thinking, he followed the advice of some terrible advisers and his own soft spot for Islam, to spread Democracy in the Arab World. This was the Freedom agenda which finally did bear fruits in the Arab Spring. This Arab Popular Uprising was coordinated by the Muslim Brotherhood and is supported by both political parties.

Rather than admit he made a mistake, Bush doubles down and comes out in full support for the Muslim Brotherhood’s agenda.

These are extraordinary times in the history of freedom. In the Arab Spring, we have seen the broadest challenge to authoritarian rule since the collapse of Soviet communism. The idea that Arab peoples are somehow content with oppression has been discredited forever.

[....]

Some in both parties in Washington look at the risks inherent in democratic change—particularly in the Middle East and North Africa—and find the dangers too great. America, they argue, should be content with supporting the flawed leaders they know in the name of stability.

But in the long run, this foreign policy approach is not realistic. It is not within the power of America to indefinitely preserve the old order, which is inherently unstable. Oppressive governments distrust the diffusion of choice and power, choking off the best source of national prosperity and success.

[....]

We know the problems. But there is a source of hope. The people of North Africa and the Middle East now realize that their leaders are not invincible. Citizens of the region have developed habits of dissent and expectations of economic performance. Future rulers who ignore those expectations—who try returning to oppression and blame shifting—may find an accountability of their own.

[....]

This work will require patience, creativity and active American leadership. It will involve the strengthening of civil society—with a particular emphasis on the role of women. It will require a consistent defense of religious liberty. It will mean the encouragement of development, education and health, as well as trade and foreign investment. There will certainly be setbacks. But if America does not support the advance of democratic institutions and values, who will?

Is George W. Bush really this stupid and naive? How can any sane rational human being support a movement that is Totalitarian. Bush claims to be a Christian yet did nothing when Christians were killed in Iraq under US Troops noses nor does he condemn the killing of Coptic Christians. Yet Bush takes time to write an op-ed defending the Islamist Arab Spring.

Sorry Bush fans, there’s no defending this one.

    Rodan, have you seen this? Israpundit is reporting that Obama is all set to overthrow King Abdullah of Jordan and replace him w/Muslim Brotherhood.

    Somehow, I’m not surprised.

    Report: Obama Is Looking to Replace Abdullah With Muslim Brotherhood – Will Wipe Out All US Allies in Mideast

    I have just received reliable information from a certain insider that a meeting was held two weeks ago in Turkey attended by the Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood, Qatar and CIA. Allegedly, Israel’s Mosad sat in as an observer. The attendees discussed what they want to happen in Jordan when the King falls.

    The MB was asked specifically whether it would uphold the peace treaty with Israel if it came to power and they said yes. Furthermore the MB offered to take in many Palestinians from Judea and Samaria.

    It struck me that this is exactly what Mudar Zahran is intending to do should he come to power. The MB is obviously following his playbook.

    From a different source I heard that Obama is putting financial pressure on Abdullah so that he will fall. Obama wants to replace him with the MB.

    George W. is incapable of learning anything, mainly because he doesn’t have anything to learn with.
