    I suppose its the West's fault for the Ottoman Empire as well?

    You deal with what the third world elects.

    While much of the planet has developed, the middle east is stuck in 200 B.C. Xerxces could still walk down the street and fit right in. LOL

    And outside of that oil underneath that wasteland, they have nothing else to trade on a global scale of any value. Don't spit on the lone resource you have.

    From your article:

    "Western policy towards this part of the world has been a total failure, in my view. It has not been based on dialogue, understanding, supporting civil society and empowering people, but rather it's been based on supporting authoritarian systems as long as the oil keeps pumping."
    How exactly do you limit that to Egypt?


    And your link is broken

    Another reason why all tax payer funded "foreign aid" should be destroyed.

    Not sure what happened but try copying and Mohamed ElBaradei hits out at west's support for repressive regimes | World news | The Guardian Egypt is one such authoritarian system.

    Edit. It works, i think the article may have been moved, could the mods kindly fix the OP

    Well in the long term what this really boils down to is whether you want to Egyptian people on your side. You can support those like ElBaradei and reach a modus vivendi *which benefits both sides or you can try to torture the people into submission by backing an unpopular and oppressive government, yet compliant government (much like the Shah during the cold war).The latter strategy got you Khomeini

    Traditionally you overthrow the democratically elected leaders like Patrice Lumumba and Kwame Nkrumah then replace them with dictators more suited to your economic mindset.

    The quote clearly says "systems" not "system" This goes far beyond Egypt.
