What's The Difference?

Two years ago there was a "Green Revolution" in Iran. People took to the streets after Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad won the presidential election by a obviously rigged landslide. The protesters shouted and used sites like Twitter to get their voices out to the world. Here in America we watched the blood flow on the streets of Iran as the govt. put down the uprising. We watched as an innocent young girl named Neda (video is VERY GRAPHIC) die on the street, along with countless others. Obama tossed out a "We don't condone violence" line but otherwise did nothing to help the Iranian people get out from under the oppressive regime. The radical islamist stay firmly seated in Iran today and are probably less than 2 years from building a nuclear weapon. They continue to terrorize our ally Israel through their bastard offshoot Hamas and threaten to take Israel off the map.

Jump to this week in Cairo Egypt, radical islamist group the muslim brotherhood, creators of Al Qeada and Hamas, started a "revolution".  Riots have broken out in the streets and the people are burning govt buildings and demanding that President Mubarak step down. Secretary of State Clinton was the first to speak out against the Egyptian Govt and now President Obama has come out and has threatened the Egyptian Govt to let the people have what they want. Specifically saying "Surely, there will be difficult days to come, but the United States will continue to stand up for the rights of the Egyptian people and work with their government in pursuit of a future that is more just, more free and more hopeful". Obama seems to want our biggest ally in the Middle East to fail. Even though it is very clear that Egypt will be overtaken by islamic radicals exactly like the ones in Iran

So I pose the question to you; What's the difference?

The UK Telegraph has a interesting story suggesting that Obama helped start this unrest in Egypt. Read and decide for yourself.
