re: Anybody here watch Shark Tank? - Bayou Sam
One of my buddies was on that show. I could see him crunching the numbers on their offer in his head--but it took him too long, and they pulled out. Really he was just on there for the free publicity and trip to LA, though....

[quote]meet the new boss; same as the old boss [/quote] This kind of statement is exactly the problem with overgeneralizing. It fails to appreciate the reality of the situation. The MB was NOT the same as the old boss. Just because we do not like either the MB or the military dictatorship, doe...

It's also worth considering that there are simply no unambiguous allies in the ME, not the Shia Iraqis, not the Jordanians, not the Saudis, not even the Turks and not even the Kurds (though they are the closest--perhaps). You have to take the good with the bad and think about long-term strategy....

[quote]the people vote in authoritarian regimes pretty much every time they're allowed the opportunity to vote[/quote] I'm talking about "authoritarian" in the sense of "non-democratic". The MB was elected legitimately. The military power currently ruling Egypt was not. [quote]what do you m...

Now, I'm going to try to talk some reason to you. In a world as complex as the world of the Middle East, you have to be very careful in choosing allies, and willing to live with people that you don't like. I like the MB even less than I like Pat Robertson and the more radical Christianists in th...

[quote]Just one day after the Egyptian military overthrew the elected Muslim Brotherhood government, Shabaab was at the forefront of those arguing that the Brotherhood made the mistake of attempting to gain power and impose sharia, or Islamic law, by following the democratic process. Shabaab's argum...

Well, the claim that the root cause is "Islam" is exactly the claim that my objections are attempting to refute. (Hence the propriety of the point about essence). It seems to me that Islam is as compatible with democratic institutions as Judaism and Christianity. Because 1) all of these religions...

[quote]Why did the Arab world only register 767 patents compared to 7,652 from Israel between 1980 and 2000?
