I think that we should let Egypt do their own thing. Part of the problem has been the US support of Mubarak. It would be very bad if Egypt elected an anti-Israeli Islamist, but we should deal with that if it happens. We must remember that Egypt isn't like every other Middle Eastern nation. They are almost half Christian and they seem to take a general stance against terrorism.
Tired of elections being between the lesser of two evils.When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser. -Socrates
If it is truly the will of the people to be free then why would you not support U.S. help to the region when elections are fraudulent?
As far as our support of Egypt, it should be primarily verbal. I think we should get out of the business of building democracies and determining what the governance of other nations should be. It's not our place.
Regarding the Green Revolution, I was probably the most supportive person (of that movement) on this board. Feel free to do a search.
