Why does the West want another puppet regime in Egypt?


Why is it that the West is so interested in what happens in Egypt, can't we just let the people of Egypt decide their own political future.

    Unfortunately, a very true statement in almost all cases. It bodes ill for Egypt, as we have seen in the years since this comment was made. :-( Peace, everyone. Live and let live.

    Much has happened, most of it badly, in Egypt since this was written but I believe the gist of it is still true: it is in the Arab worlds' nightmare that democracy should rule, not dictatorship however submissive the people are to it. Peace!

    True, our founding fathers built a republic that has lasted in relative peace (minus civil war and slaughter of Native Americans) for over 200 years. We may act democratically, but indeed we are a Republic (Act IV section 4 of the US Constitution).
