    Yep yet another repressive corrupt regime we have a hand in keeping in power so we can get our precious black gold. If unrest ensues in the House of Saud I wonder how much oil will shoot up in price? But don't worry our CIA has trained them well in ruthless interrogations and intimidation just like we did the Shah of Iran's regime.

    There's more evidence to suggest that this won't have a happy ending than there is that it will, so I'll wait until this all comes out in the wash, before I get excited.

    I trully apologize for having an opinion based on reality, rather than fantascy, but there it is. It in no way excuses the insults.

    Question: if this goes to hell in a handbag, are you going to blame the Egyptian people?
    For every failed revolution, I could name a successful one. The growth in democracies over the past 60 years is amazing - everywhere but the ME.

    I have no idea why you, and other conservatives, decide to be pessimistic and harp on the negative.

    The insult is not specifically directed at you, as we agree on lots of other things and I typically like what you have to say. Gotta respect the service to country as well.

    The insult is to all conservatives (except neocons). America in totality is a big disappointment to me in these events. Especially conservatives. We should be jumping for joy with the Egyptians and shipping them flowers by the ton. We should be demonstrating in support.

    Conservatives especially earn my disdain and anger. Talk about complete and utter hypocrisy. And even worse, it is hypocrisy regarding the VERY FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLE OF CONSERVATISM, LIBERTY. Evidently, it isn't good enough to bless Egyptians and other Middle Easterners with. Utterly pathetic. I have no fair thoughts toward conservatives today. ****ers.

    I thought conservatives were principled. Not.

    Re: Egypt's Mubarak resigns as leader

    Wow. I felt chills today watching the jubilation in Egypt that I haven't experienced since watching the Berlin Wall crumble... on my birthday!! These people have gambled with their very lives, because they believed that death was better than living in terror, poverty, humiliation and bone-chilling fear. For 30 years they have lived under Martial Law, under the thumb of a tyrant who sent secret police out to brutalize the populace at will. Now they have a chance at freedom and democracy. So many of them were crying on tv that they have their dignity now, that they feel as if they are worth something as people.

    Mubarak may have been a pro-western tyrant, but he made his people feel worthless. That anyone on this forum or anywhere else could believe that we should have done something to help a vicious dictator continue to abuse his people because it was in our best interests is astounding. This is America, remember? We're supposed to stand for freedom and democracy. We'll deal with Egypt's next government, the government the people choose, which may not be the government we would have preferred. Tough noogies for us.

    This has been a glorious day for Egypt. I feel like I have watched the birth of a nation. Oh, I know, time will tell, but let me be happy for them for at least one day. And I AM happy for them.

    The conservative woe-is-me bitchfest in this thread... not so much.

    "I can't help but admire their disinterested and courageous conduct on behalf of Cuba. Those who in one form or another have helped to protect the Cuban people from the terrorist plans and assassination plots organised by various U.S. administrations have done so at the initiative of their own conscience and are deserving, in my judgment, of all the honours in the world."
    Well unions did play a significant role, and you know how evil unions are...
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    The Egyptian military deposed a dictator. We will see what happens.

    The American people are responsible for the liberty of the American people. The American people have no obligations to foreigners.
