“Obama And Egypt’s Future” by Nicholas D. Kristof (TIMES, 2/10/11)


The fear of American officials is that the secular democratic opposition might do well in any genuine election, now or in the future.  U.S. foreign policy is committed to stability, not democracy , in every part of the world. An experienced columnist like Kristof should know that by now.

When U.S. officials, especially Republicans, cheer for democracy, what they mean is an economic system that is good for business.  They don’t give a damn about human rights and democratic principles.  Popular democracy gives them the sweats.
