Surely we learned our lesson from the cold war. Supporting dictators that kills its own people to stay in power are always eventually overthrown.
Mubarack wouldn't have had to go to the lengths of Assad, but even after we abandoned him, we still could have sided with the military over the MB. Whatever we did, we should have done something different because it's hard to imagine it being much worse (although Obama does have another 4 years to work at it, so I won't rule it out).
