    I'm sure Egypt will only improve.
    The youth wish for democracy and liberty, they will protest again if they do not receive it.

    I hope the Egyptian military takes a similar role as that of Turkey's Army. The Guardians of the Secular State

    How do you know the Egyptian constitution prohibited democracy?

    but tell us, what actions should have been implemented instead
    The army taking total control, voiding the constitution and disbanding the parliament probably isn't what I would choose.

    I'm blown away that Leftists are excited about the army taking total control of the government.

    we see it has not made its appearance in the past 30 years
    in what time span do you project democracy would have been able to take root under the existing constitution - one which has allowed a continuous state of emergency for over 20 years

    our military has a long established relationship with its egyptian counterparts
    the egyptian army played the role of referee in this uprising. it certainly had the means to quash the rebellion had it sought to do so to preserve the old order
    there is effectively a one party system now in place. this will provide an opportunity for new parties to form for truly representative government to evolve
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    He's not whining. He's keeping his eye on the ball by pointing out the hypocrisy of American leftists. He isn't denigrating the First Stage of the Egyptian Revolution.

    Since Mubarack is gone, does that mean that the United States is no longer responsible for anything that happens from this point on?

    Or, if/when the army decides to hose down the protestors with automatic weapons fire, are you going to blame that on the United States, too, because we sold them baseball bats, or something?

    The constitution allowed Mubarack to rule with emergency powers? Care to show us the text?

    Let me ask you a question: what rule book is the army bound to, at this point? There isn't one, anymore. Is it?


    our military has a long established relationship with its egyptian counterparts
    ohhhhhh, so now our relationship with Egypt is a good thing?

    the egyptian army played the role of referee in this uprising. it certainly had the means to quash the rebellion had it sought to do so to preserve the old order
    Yeah, and now there is a new order and the army is it. I'm betting they'll gladly light up the protestors to protect the new order.

    there is effectively a one party system now in place. this will provide an opportunity for new parties to form for truly representative government to evolve
    I believe that there will continue to be a one party system in place, as well.

    At least he's focusing on the important part of this story.
