More about the Egyptian protests, including the immensely touching role of women.
This is one of those stirring, spirit-rousing moments, like 1956 and 1968 and 1989, and Ukraine’s Orange Revolution. Let’s hope and pray it doesn’t meet the fate of Iran’s green one. But even when such surges are beaten back, as at Tiananmen, they are not broken.
More. I wonder why Secretary Clinton is speaking out forcefully in support of the rights of Egypt’s protesters, as no one in the Obama administration did for the Iranians. Well, clearly the difference is strategic. But it also underscored, rather than helping to undermine, the Iranian regime’s power, no? I am notoriously naïve about these things, please enlighten me.
