I didn’t realize this was an issue, but it looks like the dreaded neo-conservatives are bemoaning the outcome in Egypt as a loss for U.S. foreign policy. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, considering the debacle they led us into in Iraq and Afghanistan.
All in all, I agree with this guy.
“I think I can suggest one thing that’s more pathetic than the usual round of “who lost [fill in the blank]”, and that would be a round of “who lost [fill in the blank]” when we won. Nobody lost Egypt! Egypt just ousted its dictator in a non-violent popular revolution! It’s going to have democratic elections in six months! In what perverse universe does this count as a defeat for American foreign policy, for the West, for enlightenment civilisation, for lovers of human rights? Sweet Douglas Feith, what do these people want?”
