If the majority of the population rose up and truly wanted a change in their leadership, they would have appealed to the Arab League, or the West for support. I applaud those who truly want change, yet I question the vast population.
Egypt ousted an aging leader. Now what? What is happening in Egypt that shows any movement towards greater civil liberties?

Well put ALlen - can't send you another green star - yet.
We remember the Muslim Brotherhood's platitudes of 'we are not interested in the leadership of Egypt' - next thing we know they are going to run in the elections later this year. Civil liberties are not on the agenda!!!

Thanks Cal.

Most Arabs do want freedom, and change. But unfourtuanately the majority does not alway rule.

Revolution is like childbirth, loud, messy and painful. As with child rearing, the tricky bit comes later!
