Once a government is overthrown forcibly, it is a repeat prescription for carnage.
This is the crux of the matter though, isn't it? These people elected a man who made promises to take them toward a better future, and there are even
suggestions that the election was rigged to place him in power. Since then, he had basically continued on the same path of religious dictatorship,
trying to force the will of the MB on all of Egypt.
The country is becoming increasingly secular, which is definitely something that should be supported. A religious leader in a nation like that is
never going to be supported by the majority when their actions are clearly religiously guided.
At what point do the people say that enough is enough? Do they just leave him there and hope that when they elect the next leader he or she rolls back
the damage done? That's not worked in the USA now, has it?
This comes down to two things...
The lies of politicians who have, until now, believed that they can say whatever they like to gain power, and then follow a completely different
And, the people becoming more secular and open, while an extremely religious minority want to cling to power.
I hope that other nations are inspired. The political class is out of control all around the world, lying through their teeth without any
accountability. They hunger for power and wealth, and they couldn't give a rats behind about the people they are representing.
If a revolution in Egypt works to wake up the masses around the world and encourages them to actually hold their own governments and politicians to
account, then in my opinion that's a great thing.
It doesn't have to be violent, that's the choice a leader has to make. A real leader would step down and call for fresh elections, not cling to their
chair like a spoiled schoolboy stamping his feet and blaming others for the continued spiral into chaos.
