Oh, yes. We were so smart to help change Egypt. How much more success can we provide to the world?

@supervon "Oh, yes. We were so smart to help change Egypt. How much more success can we provide to the world?" ------------ There were so many options. Too bad Mubarak didn't silence, ignore, kill, maim, jail or torture enough people over his 30 years on the US payroll to keep himself in power. The US is still trying to wield some control through the army, which they trained and supplied.

Mubarak was a bad man...so the people changed the county and elected someone new. Turns out he was more interested in power than people. It makes me realize how lucky America had George Washington, a man willing to do the right thing and then step away from power willingly and on his own.

What's with the above posters commenting about US or Mubarak? This is about Egyptian people objecting to President Morsi's polarizing tactics. The Egyptian people are smart and they want no part of religious extremism in their government.
