Egypt: Death Penalty for Americans Who Blaspheme Mohammad! (And why the time for disengagement is now)

What was the Obama administration saying about the Muslim Brotherhood being 'moderates' again?

Egypt's general prosecutor issued arrest warrants Tuesday for seven Egyptian Coptic Christians and a Florida-based American pastor and referred them to trial on charges linked to an anti-Islam film that has sparked riots across the Muslim world....

The prosecutor's office said in a statement that the accused, which includes the film's alleged producer, face charges of harming national unity, insulting and publicly attacking Islam and spreading false information. The office said they could face the death penalty, if convicted.

The time has come for us to leave Muslim countries to their own devices. If they wish to civilize, I wish them all the best.

We tried supporting dictators and that didn't work. We tried supporting democracy, that didn't work. We tried nation building, and that didn't work.

Homer Simpson summed it up precisely. We tried our best and failed miserably. The lesson is: never try.

Not caring about what happens in the Muslim world is a cathartic and liberating experience. You should try it.

If a country can't protect our embassy, the answer is to close the embassy. If a country takes $1 billion of our dollars, and then returns the favor by indicting our citizens for religious "crimes", then stop giving them money.

If the Muslim world wishes to join the 21st century, I wish them all the luck in the world.

But if they don't? It's not my problem. I just don't care anymore.

I don't care about nation building in Afghanistan anymore. I don't care about the Muslim Brotherhood being in power in Egypt anymore. Let al Qaeda take over Tunisia. I. Just. Don't. Care.

Our foreign policy towards the Muslim world should simply be this: leave us the f*ck alone, if you don't we will utterly annihilate you. We will not invade. We will not depose. We will not nation build. We will destroy.

And if after being destroyed you choose to f*ck with us again, we will destroy you again. Until either you stop f*cking with us or you are all dead.

The nuclear option is on the table.

We will put no more American lives at risk to give you freedom. American freedom was won by American blood. Afghan freedom will be won by Afghan blood. Iraqi freedom will be won by Iraqi blood. Etc.

I've had it. I'm checking out. It's not my problem anymore. Call me when you've matured. I'm moving on.

So long Muslim world, and thanks for all the fish!
