The massive protests that led to the downfall of the Tunisian dictatorship have now spread to Egypt. There are massive protests in the street in Egypt. people are sick of the 30 year rule of the authoritarian and corrupt Mubarak regime.
And as was the case in Iran last year, where is your government? Throwing the people in the streets under the bus. http://af.reuters.com/article/…
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also said that the United States believed that the government of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, in power for three decades, was stable and looking for ways to meet the Egyptian people’s aspirations.
makes one look back fondly for the days of Jimmy Carter when the Democrats cared about human rights. Obama just wants to cozy up authoritarian regimes.
