Foreign policy dilemma -

Seems a dilemma has now occurred for US/UK foreign policy. For some time now we've heard criticism of the Syrian secular dictator "killing his own people", with talk of arming the rebels, even though most will be fundementalists and not necessarily friends of the West. Now, we have a Military dictatorship in Egypt "killing it's own people". So where do we go from here?

Let's get this right. You saw the headlines about the security forces shooting to kill people and you automatically jump to the conclusion it was the army. Well the security forces are the police not the army. The army was firing tear gas to drive back the pro Morsi camp and to disperse them. It was at this point of turmoil that THE  POLICE (uniformed and plain clothed) and rooftop snipers started to shoot to kill - not the army.

Does it matter if its the army or police they are still killing their own people. :unsure:  :unsure:

No it doeesn't matter and I have said myself it is so, so terrible because they could be killing their own brother or father, mother or sister or cousin etc.,. The general public would embrace them if they refused to follow orders on occasions such as this. They were only following orders is not an acceptable excuse in these instances. How difficult could it be to turn the gun onto whomever gave the order - FIRE!?

Robespierre etc, were part of the revolutionary process, and he succumbed to the ongoing anarchy with a date with Madame Guillottine .  The Paris mob was finally quelled by Napoleon's "whiff of grapeshot", and he became a joint Consul, before leading French Armies from victory to victory, and himself becoming sole dictator, rather than the previous system of rule by faceless committees.
