    We're heard the usual pronouncements, that we are for Democracy in Egypt and the Middle East, etc. However, there is no guarantee that any democratic government arising in Egypt will have positions favorable to the U.S., its security and its interests.

      we be credible in stating that "we" are for democracy anywhere else. Wolin is right, we have the forms of democracy and rule by oligarchy, which is what we really champion. As long as the foreign oligarchs agree with the positions of the American oligarchs.
