Re: Underhanded Humiliation Edition (Robert Wright & Ann Althouse)
Concerning Egypt, I think it is a bit ironic that U.S is not openly supporting democratic developments in Egypt and urging Mubarak to step down. I mean bringing democracy to Irak and to Middle East at large was, as i recall it, one of the main talking points when U.S chose to invade Irak. The second irony of the situation is that, Wikileaks, which was condemned by U.S officials at both sides of the political fence, has had a remarkable role - I would suggest - in bringing about the recent uprising in Tunisia and Egypt. The horrendous vandals Wikileaks conspirators are in fact doing exactly U.S. wasn't able to accomplish by spending billions in a military campaing in Irak.
