That's a bit of an extreme reaction to the comments.

If you read the article again, you'll notice that Mubarak doesn't give his opinion of the US, but rather makes a comment about public opinion in the Middle East.

The reality, though, is that removing the money will essentially lead to what happened in Haiti with Aristide. Bush knew this; that's why he pulled the money out of Haiti to all but ensure the nation's instability.

The money, of course, will stay put.

Why was it our responsibility to keep Iraq stable?

I'll leave it open-ended.

Back to the original topic:

Quote:
So jaws dropped across Washington when Kerry responded with just one word after host Tim Russert asked him on "Meet the Press" whether he supported Bush's promises to Sharon.

"Yes," Kerry said.

"Completely?" Russert followed.

"Yes," Kerry said again.

Not much ambiguity there. Kerry probably hasn't answered an important question in so few words since his wedding day.

Kerry Skips Nuance on Mideast Policy When It's Needed Most

I wonder if Kerry's comments made it to "Alternet"?
