Egypt people, are you missing Mubarak already?

Reader comment on item: Better Dictators than Elected Islamists

Submitted by NuritG (United States), Dec 11, 2012 at 17:03

The dissent of the people in Egypt, Libya, etc., may have ousted a dictator, but have replaced these autocrats with a collective Islamic dictatorship that will send these societies back to the 7th century and will yield less freedom they have known before. As they say, you do not throw dirty water to replace it with dirtier water and that is exactly what the people in Egypt and Libya have done. The extra freedom the people in the street wanted and were protesting to have has been stolen from them. No happy days are in Egypt's cards.
