    I'm not as concerned as some that Egypt will turn into a radical Islamic theocracy. The vast majority of the populace are quite secular, and wouldn't be okay with that. As we've seen, when the vast majority of Egyptians are not okay with something, they have ways of expressing themselves in person.

    I'm am concerned about tomorrow. I want these people to have more freedom and a real democracy. The country has been under Martial Law for 30 years, and they've been absolutely terrorized by the police and the plain-clothed equivalent of our FBI. There's no way I can't hope that they achieve what they've fought so hard for the past 18 days. Over 300 dead. That's a pretty hefty sacrifice. Clearly these people are willing to die for their freedom. Tomorrow I hope it doesn't come to that.

    Well you mentioned freedom and I agree with you that it is a wonderful thing, and the people of Iraq are enjoying their freedom right now. I hope it turns out as well for the Egyptians as it did for the Iraqis. Elections, a constitution, all of it.

    And of course I am for freedom for the Egyptian people. Who wouldn't support freedom and democracy for everyone?? They'd have to be pretty sick not to, wouldn't they?

    Yeah, those darned fearful Americans.

    Good that you're not one of them, huh?

    Given the choice between democracy and dictatorship, I've got to go with democracy. I've never thought of democracy as a socialist concept.
