Lucky LaRue: I know, right? If they started picking-and-choosing laws, the next thing you know, you've got a coup on your hands. And nobody wants to deal with that.


Its funny, the current US Egyptian diplomat was on All Things Considered a day or two ago and was squirming circles around the question of why is the law important here yet at the same time didn't you ignore the law when deposing a democratically elected president?

I think they now prefer the 40 years of peaceful dictatorship over the nutbag Islamists after seeing what they do when they are in power.

We fund the military so they can prevent crazies from being in charge and crazy. If we really do abandon them, the Russians step right in.

archichris: Lets see...... for 40 years Egypt is a secular, law abiding, nation that is a force for stability and peace int eh region.

Then some islamic radicals get support from our President and overthrow Mubarak, who is admittedly a dictator.

Then we have a couple years of absolute chaos, ethnic and religious cleansing, riots, terrorism, threats of war, etc.....

And you think that Mubarak is the one who will start a Civil War?

Put him on a ballot and see what happens.


I think enough of the populace will remember the 40 years of dictatorship.

Dictators in the Middle East are looking better all the time. Their cultural/religious inclinations seem to trend that way
