Out of the mouth of babes

This is the inocense we all have at the begining, then someone comes along and tells ya to grow up, and proceeds to tell ya the world dont work like that, while being a participant in the world not being like that, they say, be a man, i say, FUCK OFF you twat, YOU be a man, and stand up for what you BELIEVE, when we were ALL babes

You have the right of it my egyptian brother, dont ever lose it

The kid seems clever, but he

The kid seems clever, but he isn't particularly intelligent. Democracy will not save Egypt any more than it has the United States.

The expansion of democratic principles in the US is causing our slide into tyranny. Obama was elected president of the United States. Think about that long and hard.

brought to you

by the US state dept via National Endowment for Democracy and TRACCS.

..call me cynical.

Hope the kid is alive and

Hope the kid is alive and well. How can the US Government, the Neo Cons and the American people not look at the Egyptian crisis as another failed intervention? Mubarak stepped down in 2011 and here we are two years later watching the newly elected government collapse.

I certainly hope I'm not the only one...

...to consider the possibility that the subtitles placed on the video may, in fact, not be what the boy is saying. Hell, for all I know, he could be talking about Grand Theft Auto 5 coming out this year for Play Station. I guess it's the " Question Everything " mentality I have. The very same that brought me to Ron Paul in the first place.

I used a translator to translate some of the comments

from the video on YouTube. Of course translations from using translators are rarely perfect, but it seems that others were praising him.

One translation said: "Tongue and mind clean ... God protect him and baptized Egypt..."

Another: "A nation where Children Speak this logic fine cannot be governed by the President of the اهبل such as Morsi"

One user said:

"it is his words and the translation was right, I'm an Arab take it from me.

نعم الترجمة صحيحة

The last line translates to: "Yes correct translation"

I guess it's accurate.

lol. i agree, egypts assembly

lol. i agree, egypts assembly needs more women.

as does our own

we are running at a record 20% women roughly.

Sometimes kids can see things better, faster, earlier than we do

If the translation was faithful to what this kid said, the main thing I heard stunning, from a child's mouth is his understanding of how that works every time, indeed:

Bread and Circuses.

Instead, he wants FREEDOM AND JUSTICE, starting with respect for his people's texts.

I wonder if that still rings a bell over here, beyond these forums.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

Hope he lives to see his 13th birthday.

Watch out for drones overhead.

On the lighter side, perhaps he was really talking about the NBA playoffs with some passion, and the subtitles were made up making him look well-read and quick on his feet.

This is exactly the type of thinking

That CIA funded 'decapitation' squads try to stamp out.

I hope that the Egyptian people will prevail and regain their independence from the puppet masters.

Of course, they just 'appointed' El Baradei, who quickly named his 'chief rival' from the Muslim Brotherhood to appease dissenters.

They are trying to suck the Egyptians into the left/right paradigm we are stuck in. Both groups are of course controlled by our foreign intel agencies.

The propaganda in Egypt is as thick as morning fog in the fall.

Free Thinker?

This kid is very interesting. Speaking his thoughts very quickly, which to me indicates a thinker more so than someone subjected to rote learning or indoctrination.

The Ron Paul of Egypt has just been identified.

Out of the mouths of babes comes free-flowing Liberty. Wow! This is great. Thanks.
