That is probably the lowest a human can get. Very selfish and sick.
Get over yourself, Fritz88. No one here would begrudge the people of Egypt having a government that is genuinely based on individual freedom. But there's not a lot of that going on in the Arab and muslim world these days. It's perfectly reasonable to be skeptical and it's also perfectly reasonable to be concerned about what a contrary outcome would mean for our interests. F*** Egypt if it reverts to an alliance with anti-Western socialism or decides to side with anti-Western islamism.
