The U.S. won't allow a true democratic election in Egypt. The risk of the Suez Canal and the oil companies there being nationalized are too great. Whoever is in power must capitulate to the demands of the western nations. Whatever Obama is saying on t.v. is what is needed to show the world a certain face. You can bet the intelligence community is working overtime in Egypt right now to ensure the proper person comes to power.
The Suez Canal is one of the most important economic pathways in the world, if not the most. As if it will be left up to simple elections to determine who runs Egypt?
