What I do know is that Egypt has the largest population in the Arab world. It also has the largest, best trained, and best equipped armed forces in the Arab world. And while some Egyptians no doubt would like a real democracy, there are plenty of others, influenced by the Muslim Brotherhood, that think killing Christians and planning for war with Israel and introducing Sharia law would be good things. Among Arab countries, Egypt has the greatest potential for good -- and the correspondingly greatest potential for disaster.
Now maybe nothing we can do will nudge this situation into a better or safer direction. I don't know. But do I sleep better because Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are dealing with this on our behalf? Do you?
