Two pages online of descriptions of what was or was not happening in all the protests but not **one word** (that I could find) about **why**!

Judging from the name of the "reporter", Hamza Hendawi, I'd guess s/he (not sure) is an affiliate in Egypt, writing for the AP. Perhaps this means s/he is not actually a journalist.

But, whatever Hamza's normal occupation, it's plain that s/he forgot one of the most important W's of the famous "Five W's" (Who, What, Where, When, Why) of journalism.

The power of the Internet brings enlightenment to the darkest places of the world. And despite all of this good news, the regime will blame it on the Jews.

Sometimes we think we know what we want, and then find out that it was not really what we want. Like I want chocolate, and then I find out a lot of it causes me to gain weight. But it presents itself in such a wonderful way, of course it looks good, it smells good, it tastes good, it calms me down when I am agitated and wakes me up when I am tired, so what's not to love about it. Well, if it is used with control and moderation, then it isn't bad, but once it gets out of hand, then there seems to be no going back without great effort and sacrifice. People are figuring this out in Egypt, when are they going to figure it out here?

Lets not forget that even in our history, there were many unsettled years after the founding of our nation. The abridged version of history has it we won the war, and we all lived happily ever after. The truth was it was highly unsettled, and we had many "uprisings" in the early years. Adams in a letter to Jefferson tells the story about how he was chased from Philadelphia by mobs who accused him of treason.

So we should not be surprised that these new nations will struggle with establishing a balanced democracy.... heck we still have our bouts with unrest still. The 60s were anything but restful. We still have groups very angry at our form of government.

We give aid to Egypt and rationalize it by saying that we buy leverage. Politicians who spend our taxes must document just what we are buying and how much leverage results; human rights especially toward the Coptic Egyptians, recognition of Israel, suppression of terrorism, development for the poor. At present it is a bad return on investment. Paydays should come at the end of the work week and not the beginning.
