    Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.

      Egypt is for Egyptians to handle.

      It's a very tricky situation for the United States because we have such a history of aid to and interaction with the Egyptian military.

      I pray that it doesn't turn into full-scale genocide because part of me isn't very comfortable with my usual hands-off outlook when it comes to mass killings of civilians.

      Still -- we didn't take out Saddam Hussein when he was killing tens of thousands of his own people, so the bar must be pretty high.
