more on Egypt

This is an interesting article to read about the unfolding story of what is happening in Egypt, what might have led to this point. It will take books to really explore the aspects and someday figure out all the ramifications; but for today, it's about pieces that we all try to put together.


You know he was someone I had regarded as the good guy with no clue what has gone wrong there until this all began to erupt. How much of what went wrong was the United States engaging in torture and asking our allies to do it for us when we did not? Did our policies unleash an unethical barrage of mistreatment that caused others to grow worse in what they were doing OR is it just how governments go as we see it over and over in history?

Excellent questions which will probably never get an honest answer.

I agree with Kay. We will never know just how involved our policies have been. And I, for one, deeply resent much of what has been done in 'my' name.

I think that Egypt will go in the direction of the Muslim Brotherhood. I honestly don't see democracy developing there. Some of our media seemed intent on cheerleading sad yo say instead of reporting the story...Anderson Cooper case in point...
