    Well, my confidence in Egypt and Egyptians (never high, admittedly) has plummeted since 2009. So we’re even.

    So much for leading from behind. Now we got an Egyptian government we can’t control even with money and a population that the Egyptian government can’t control.

    Does Professor Mead have any idea for how to improve this situation? Apparently not, which is understandable, considering how hopeless it seems to be.

    What? You mean the Cairo speech and the Tahrir Square demonstrations weren’t all it takes to make Egypt a democratic utopia?

    What fools these liberals be…

    Tell me, is our humanitarian aid contingent on their having a government we like? (That probably wouldn’t help us with the population in general, if that’s a goal.) Alternatively, are we doing anything to prevent nastiness to the Copts and other minorities in the country?

    Or are we just failing to prioritize any goal, and putting up with across-the-board disaster as a result?
