Miss Me Yet?

Does anyone still believe that supporting the ouster of Hosni Mubarak was good foreign policy?

Just wondering.

Good question.

Sometimes an experiment has to be tried to be proven worthless. Under Pax Mubarak, the bros could make any claim they wished. They've had a chance and shown to be worse.

I think people are not so stupid: The totalitarian ideology there is at stake, for it is shown now to prophet them not. (cough)

Personally, in the Arab countries I think people need a strong-armed man like Mubarak, because of the "tribal culture" they still seem to embrace. They need someone to forcibly unite them and enter the modern world with some tolerance for other religions and cultures. Personally, when all this talk in the U.S. of the Arab Spring was heard I had grave doubts, and I think thus far my doubts were right on the mark. I was sorry to see Mubarak go because I suspected that things would only fall apart and get worse. I still hope all the current madness and chaos is temporary---but I doubt it.
