One can hardly blame the alleged president for a bit of confusion and anxiety when it comes to the situation in Egypt. Regime change is, at this point, a certainty...but very little else is.
Will a new or transitional government be more democratic...or more inclined to Shariah law? Will the demonstrations, which some people suggest have been fomented or supported by the United States, actually make the country more dangerous and anti-American? And can anyone convince Joe Biden to keep his yap shut for five consecutive minutes?
In Egypt, it seems the rioters in the streets are taking these words very seriously: "We have the power to make the world we seek, but only if we have the courage to make a new beginning, keeping in mind what has been written."
The words were spoken in Cairo in 2009. By Barack Hussein Obama.
