    The mistake comes from equating democratic elections with liberty. There's no such guarantee. That's why the "Arab Spring" was a fairy tale viewed as reality by the criminally naive.

    Could it be that outside forces are at work to destabilize Egypt.

    Have we or other countries ever used clandestine forces to stir the pot of political discontent in Egypt?

    Who would benefit from turmoil in Egypt?

    You may be sure the Muslim Brotherhood would not allow a free election again. In fact their election is suspect. If we are going to support democracy in the world we do not want to support the Muslim Brotherhood a jihadist terrorist organization.

    Democracy without a Bill of RIghts is an open invitation to the tyranny of the majority. Iran is a recent example. The problem in Egypt is not democracy or lack thereof, it is the militant Islamists whose agenda is based on sharia law and religious hegemony. They use the veil of elections to defend their oppression and human rights abuses.

    Why does the Chicago Tribune and the Deseret News ignore mentioning the "peaceful Muslim Brotherhood protesters" who have burned over 50 Christian churches, abducted and killed Christian children and terrorized Christian business communities since the start of the latest Egyptian violence?

    Seriously Des News, if a LDS church was burned or even a single Mormon missionary killed by the "peaceful protesters" would you report on it?
