The resending of the Egyptian Amb. simply confirms what many of us expected back in late November, early December. This should draw a close to any further democratization talk from Washington for a little while while Ayman Nor and other political activists sit in prison.
Bush urged Egypt to â€œshow the way toward democracy in the Middle Eastâ€� in the SOTU last week. Bushie is happily ignorant as democratization seems to mean being friends with Israel, not actually democratizing.
Ummm...friends with Israel, unrepentant authoritarianism - what a novel concept.
