With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

from the BBC feed, a State Department messenger boy named Frank Wisner said:
Frank Wisner: ‘This is an ideal moment for Mubarak to show the way forward’
Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak “must stay in office” during a power transition, a US special envoy says.
Frank Wisner was speaking as protesters kept up their demands for Mr Mubarak to step down immediately.

See, in the "democracy" envisioned by at least some, the will of the people in the hopefully soon-to-be former Satrapy must be put aside for the National Imperial interests of the biggest threat to democracy in the world today.

The Egyptian people are having their collective head rubbed and told that Washington knows best, and they'll get their freedom when Washington decides they're ready for it, meanwhile they have to be patient while Mummy and Daddy Washington make absolutely certain that the "Wrong People" aren't allowed to participate in their freedom.
Ska-roo that noise. I personally feel like going to Egypt, shaking each persons hand and apologizing for even being associated with that through being a Citizen.

If freedom in Egypt interferes with the carefully crafted and possibly Nuclear attacks planned against Iran and North Korea, GROOVY.
It's not like God Himself came down and told us that we have a right and an absolute duty to run Iran, North Korea, South Korea, PPRC, Taiwan, Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, where-ever-the-Hell-istan

and, while there are certain people who say that we must, readily identified by the drool hanging out the corners of their mouths, we can't do it in the first place -so there- end of story.
"Our" leaders really need to get over themselves. They also, college educated men and women all, need to go back to 6th grade vocabulary lessons and How To Use A Freakin' Dictionary, and look up the differences between, say, Freedom and Puppet Dictatorship, or... Nationalism and Imperialism.
The terms aren't interchangeable and they embarrass me by speaking in my name, with the name of every other citizen, and trying to use the terms like that.
