I am thinking hard of a complete, critical article on the situation in Egypt but it will take a lot of work and I am quite busy. Here is a summary:
Egypt is experiencing a democratic revolution. It’s not hard to grasp: Millions of Egyptians want what we have, what we take for granted. If you listen to them you will find that it’s what they say.
Our government does not know what to do (here again). Not all Obama’s fault. The Arab policy of all administrations – except that of Georges W. Bush – has been completely lacking in imagination for twenty years.
I am embarrassed by the ignorance of the media, left to right. That includes Fox News and Rush Limbaugh who was caught flat-footed regurgitating old cliches.
American passivity in this circumstance might well give us what all the media say we fear most and which has been used to justify our support of tyrants: An Islamist take-over.
