Your'e saying Mubarek's abillity to hold power right up until millions of low information voters elected a Jr Senator with Zero Qualifications AND who had a ideological bone to pick with Israel was based on Coincidence ?
That the Egyptian Islamic Extremist achieved everything they needed in one year to stage a successful Coup ?
I'm begining to notice a pattern here.
Saddam was a crazy and brutal dictator that continually stepped over the line and the only ones who realized that were the two Bush's... The best part is that his sons (who would have succeeded him) were even crazier and more brutal than he was.
I only wish the people of Iraq were capable of an "Arab spring" -- they weren't because Iraq was a borderline cult of personality - similar to North Korea (just not as mindboggling whacky)
And you didn't answer my question: Do you think the US should have tried to help Mubarak crush the Egyptian protesters? It seems that you approve of Brutal dictatorships killing their own people if it's in the US interests.
