    Ok. And?

    Nasser said that, too. So did Lenin. Hitler, Mussolini, Ho Chi Minh, Pol Pot, Khomeni...they all had the, "peoples's", best interests in mind.

    You think I'm going to be convinced, just because the army says they're not up to any good?

    Here's the hero that started it all.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

Their hatreds for each other (mostly Sunni sided) is absolutely about Islam. If you don't know what you are talking about...shut the hell up and don't waste my time. In fact, why don't you apply for a job with the media or Washington.

    **** it, I'll just get you on this one.

    If you looked at the crowds in Cairo and across the country, would your first thought be, "Hey I'd like to try and govern that".

    I rest my case.

    What crowds, "across the country"?

    Let's not forget that less than 1% of Egyptians were represented during these protests.
