I've previously noted that the Egyptian revolution shows that the us-versus-them narrative of the war on terror is false.
The events in Egypt also prove that democracy does not come from the barrel of a gun.
fact that the Egyptian protesters have made more strides away from
tyranny and towards democracy in 2 and 1/2 weeks than the American
military has been able to do in 9 years if Afghanistan and 7 years in
Iraq proves it.
Obviously, there is a long way to go. The military has to hand over power
and let elections take place. But Egyptian people have taken a giant
step in the right direction, while America's offensive military
campaigns have caused more harm than good, destabilized the region and created new terrorists.
