Remember when we were told that the poor Egyptian people just wanted a break from Mubarak, and that they just wanted democracy (Obama-style hope and changey)?
I was one of those folks that was saying that what was going to happen in Egypt was a transition into a jihad loving, Muslim Brotherhood influenced, rise of madness.
Hmmm, let's see what's been happening:
Democratic Egypt to Ban Bikinis, Beer and King Tut - Townhall
'Exterminate Christians, close pyramids, Sphinx': Rising leader in Egypt has astonishing plans - World Net Daily
Hmmmm. Would it be rude to say, "I told ya so?"
Democracy is the road to socialism, dictatorships, and mob rule.
I am not suggesting I was a fan of a dictator like Mubarak, but in hind-sight, I think he was definitely better than the alternative. . . not only for Egypt, but for the world as a whole.
