All of us, every single man, woman, and child on the face of the Earth were born with the same unalienable rights; to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And, if the governments of the world can't get that through their thick skulls, then, regime change will be necessary.

NO credibility in the Arab world? Sen McCain, we have none ANYWHERE
McCain charges U.S. lost ‘credibility’ on Egypt
The United States has “no credibility” in the Middle East due to the Obama administration’s inaction in Egypt, Sen. John McCain said Sunday.
The administration previously threatened to cut off aid if there was a coup in Egypt, the Arizona Republican said, but has refused to honor that promise. “We could be cutting off the aid,” as well as cutting off economic assistance, tourism and exports, he said, but the administration is “not sticking to our values.”.
McCain has just visited Egypt in an effort to broker an agreement between military leaders and supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi. While there, he said he wanted to give the military generals an opportunity to get on the “path to democracy.”
Sen McCain has complained repeatedly about our inaction in Libya, Syria and now Egypt. As proponent of Mubarak we had no credibility with the people of the ME. As haters of Assad we had none. As despisers of Qaddafi we had none. We had none because were CERTAINLY since about 2006 PREPARED TO DO VERY LITTLE. And most of all, to those who voted in the govts of Turkey, Tunisia, Egypt and others, our freedoms are their blasphemy and thus we can NEVER have credibility there.
Since 2009 we have demonstrated the willingness to risk only drones and seal teams WHERE NOT ALREADY ENGAGED. We have no credibility as an international power ANYWHERE becuase every nation friend or foe knows we will take no action which implies political risk domestically.
But now, Mr. McCain, over these nations the USA has absolutely NOTHING at stake. Worse still, what is it McCain wished us to do? What Obama wishes and back those whose philosophy is totally opposed to our liberal values of free expression, and utter religious freedom?
The Muslim Brotherhood is the ENEMY of the people of this nation. Assad is the is the ENEMY of the people of this nation. Those rebelling against Assad, are the ENEMIES of the people of this nation.
This is a clear set of realities. Why this is not clear to this administration, and opposition senators such as McCain and Graham BOGGLES THE MIND
