Egypt- Ruled by the Mobs, Rioters Rule

Let's call this a dark day for world peace.

That so-called “wonderful Arab Spring”  by political pundits like United States President Barack Hussein Obama has taken off its mask and is proving to be pure anarchy in Egypt.

Tara Todras-Whitehill for The New York Times

CAIRO — Egypt’s military officers removed the country’s first democratically elected president, Mohamed Morsi, on Wednesday, suspended the Constitution and installed an interim government presided over by a senior jurist.

Let’s call this a dark day for world peace.  One has to be more than delusional to believe that the sacking of elected President Morsi is a benign show of Egyptian democracy.

BBC

Egypt’s army has removed President Mohammed Morsi from power, suspended the constitution and pledged new elections following mass protests. The army chief announced the move in a TV address. The head of the constitutional court is expected to be sworn in as interim leader on Thursday. Mr Morsi’s supporters denounced the move as a military coup and said he was being held in detention.

No doubt that things will only get worse in Egypt and other Arab countries.  It’s important to remember that when a nation does not have a history, culture or tradition of democracy, it’s terribly difficult to suddenly develop it.  Imposing democracy and western values and procedures on a country that never, ever lived in such ways  is dangerous and foolish, totally unrealistic.

The United States hasn’t learned its lesson, neither from Vietnam, nor from Iraq and the entire Israeli “peace process/negotiations” is based on the very same fallacy, that you can turn a bunch of terrorists into law-abiding, peaceful citizens of a democratic country.

I’m a realist, a pragmatist, I wasn’t impressed by any of the “Arab springs,” and I’m certainly not impressed or reassured by this latest change of leadership in Egypt.  It’s simply the rule of the mob.  It’s dangerous and it can be very contagious. I hope the world is ready, but hoping is a rather useless emotion.  Good luck everyone.
