  •  The Egyptian people say they (0+ / 0-)

    voted for democracy and got a theocrat who lied.  They say Morsi would have been okay if he'd focused on rebuilding a functional economy and a stable infrastructure.  Instead he started building an Islamic political infrastructure, ignored the day to day problems they were facing.  They say they don't trust the military to build a democracy, they want it to give THEM a chance to build their own. They want the Muslim Brotherhood run out, with all it's attendant groups firmly shut down. They are aware that change is hard, that it'll be a long, hard, rocky slog and that democracy for them won't look like Turkey, or America, or France.  

    Listen to the people who live there and ignore the Eurocentric pronouncements of our pundit and political class.  99% of Americans are clueless about foreign cultures, thank God Obama isn't.  

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
