Fall of Mubarak

I don't have much to add on the transition of Egypt to military rule. But it is a very dangerous time for our interests, which are served by a transition to democracy. However, I don't know that a true democracy will be the outcome in Egypt. There are many examples throughout history of democratic revolutions devolving into brutal dictatorships, from France in 1789 to Iran in 1979. Egypt's army is well respected, but the groups that organized Mubarak's defeat aren't going to be appeased unless they gain power.


  1. Finally, an issue that I am passionate about. I have looked for information of this caliber for the last several hours. Your site is greatly appreciated.

  2. The more I read about the Egyptian army, the more I was relieved with the interim progress of this revolution.
