The anti-American riots in the Middle East are a natural result of the impotence of Hope & Change, an empty slogan that doesn’t hold water with impoverished people who live under the yolk of dictatorial regimes. Only guilty Liberals are seduced by the promise of a society where people pay their ‘fair share’ and the State knows best and will punish those who are successful.
Class warfare doesn’t work in places like Egypt, Libya, Sudan, Tunisia where there are only three real classes: the military, the Imams, and everybody else.
“Hope and Change” was built for America with its guilt-ridden Upper Middle Class and relatively stable society.
In places like the Middle East where survival is important and securing your next meal, “Hope and Change” are as illusionary – and permanent – as a sandcastle.
