Mubarak is out in Egypt: now what???
When new democracies were formed in Europe the United States sent in people well in advance to help the people of those nations make a smooth transition into democracy. It took years. Yet Egypt has been run by Pharaohs, kings and dictators for over 4,000 years, so such a transition may be difficult.
In fact, some wonder if it's even possible to form a democracy at all in Egypt. Some believe that what happened in Iran in 1979, where a revolution took place to remove a dictator, and new leaders came into power who were evil. Jimmy Carter sat on his butt back then and did nothing to help the people to form a new government and an effective democracy. Some fear this is what might happen in Egypt.
Freedom doesn't come without a price. Likewise, it takes years of training and researching to form a democracy. It doesn't just appear one day. It took hundreds of years from kings to the Magna Carta to the signing of the Declaration of Independence to the signing of the U.S. Constitution. Egypt doesn't have that kind of time. So one wonders if a democracy can be formed in such a short period of time.
What will Obama do? Will Obama be like Jimmy Carter and sit on his behind? He supported supported a dictator in China and treated him with royalty, yet he treated a dictator in Egypt poorly. He's inconsistent. So, what will Obama do now?
Obama also did nothing when the people of Iran -- an enemy of the West and pro-Caliphate dictator -- tried to overtake the government and create a democracy. So what will Obama do? Your guess is as good as mine.
So what will happen in Egypt now that Mubarak is out?
Your guess is as good as mine. Yet in my humble opinion we ought to be sending in people over there who are experts in creating a democracy in an attempt to teach those who truly want freedom how to do it.
Otherwise, if radical Islam takes over Egypt, there is a good chance we could see another slaughter of Jews. Those people who are celebrating in the streets, and those of you who feel good for them, should also be leary of what could happen over there.
We ought to take this seriously. We ought to be teaching democracy, and we ought to do it now. We should have started years ago.
