It was a non-violent revolution and I trust it will put to an end all that silly talk about how Arabs aren’t ready for democracy. It also may be an end to the US being a major player in the Middle East. Yes, events were tumultuous and fast moving, but the White House waffled all over the place, first supporting the odious torturer Suleiman in a transition role then later backing the protesters. The real truth may be no one there much cares what the US thinks, except Israel of course.
Tyrants everywhere are clearly getting nervous, already making concessions. We’ll be feeling the repercussions of the Egypt revolution for years to come.
And hey, I think we need one here too.
