Egyptian Protesters Did in 2 1/2 Weeks What the American Military Could Not Do in 9 Years of War … Bring Democracy to the Middle East

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.

The 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.
