Obama failed utterly with regards to the Green Revolution. Lets at least do right by these people.
I think many on the right need to come forward and be honest right now. Was Iraq about the desire and belief that we need to "spread democracy" and that removing despots in favor of democracy is good for people...or was it simply about our self interest.
I think in general the United States should be supporting the will of people seeking a democracy. That does not mean we need to support the actual governmental figures they put in place if it works counter ot the United State's interests...that would be ridiculous. However, as a general stance, when placed between supporting dictatorships or democracy, the US should be given its support to the latter.
I agree with earlier posts. You can't say you care about freedom and the well being of people while simultaneously refusing any instance of destablization. For massive regime change to legitimately and fully happen in such a way that its likely to stick a period of destablization is needed. However, something far more stable and far better can come from that period if you allow it.
First steps first, I hope the Egyptian people can claim their freedom and push for their democracy. Its at that point I hope they choose the right individuals that will actually allow such ideals to continue legitimately rather than placing individuals into power who will simply manipulate the system to create a defacto-dictatorship within a handful of years once more.
