Letter: US erred in supporting Arab Spring

Having once lived in the Sinai and Cairo, I've been closely monitoring the turmoil currently going on in Egypt. I attribute much of what's going on directly to our government.

Our government, in essence, befriended and supported the Muslim Brotherhood against President Mubarak. Although our government and media clearly knew that the Muslim Brotherhood was radical, they stated it was moderate. President Mubarak kept things in order as he dealt hard with the Muslim Brotherhood. He had to deal hard with them because they're radical, and as such, he maintained stability in the region.The whole Arab Spring support by our government was one of erroneous and wrong policy. Consider that President Gaddafi had been in check since the Reagan administration and how our government supported al-Qaida linked rebels in the recent overthrow. The government and media tried to spin it well as a humanitarian effort. That said, it's hard to sell a pig with mud all over it as a clean pig.What's being achieved? Oil-rich nations are being destabilized. In time, what will this do to price of oil? Oil prices, in time, will skyrocket. Please note that America has plenty of oil resources. There's no valid reason that we should be oil dependent on the Middle East, period. We're dependent on foreign oil because of globalist policies implemented within the United States. One also needs to understand that the United States is being used by the globalists to assist them in implementation of their worldwide policies; thus, Arab Spring.

  • Viewpoint: Pray for an end to abortion pandemic There are few, if any, conditions of our day that have more impact on our lives than the shameful practice of abortion – a legalized form of murder. There are many who say that should not be spoken in polite society. There are others who buy into the fabrication that since abortion is legal, it must be a non-issue.

  • Viewpoint: Politicians creating instability in public schools

    I will begin this correspondence by stating I have known hundreds of educators from across the state of Indiana. There are a couple of fibers that commonly run through the character of most of these great people, educators truly care about kids, and they do not fear a fair and equitable evaluation.

  • Viewpoint: Resources are available to prevent child abuse The word "courage" is often associated with the fight against child abuse. Front line victim advocates have long recognized the need for courage in order to protect victims. Behind the scene advocates need courage to fight for funding and attention to the cause.

  • Viewpoint: Tree City USA distinction laughable I thoroughly enjoyed your April Fools' editorial announcing that the city of Anderson had received the Tree City USA distinction. Had I not realized it was a joke, I would have choked on my coffee. I was a little concerned that you did not announce to some of the less enlightened readers that it was an April Fools' joke.
