What if Egyptians, instead of rising up in revolution against their own rulers, had merely demonstrated in support of U.S. resisters like Bradley Manning who were being tortured by Obama?

Egypt, Reagan, Obama: U.S. Hypocrisy Is All That Really Trickles Down 12.Feb.2011 15:48

"As I see it two persistent hypocritical stories seem unavoidable lately and each speak to the weakness of progressive politics in the United States and to a hypocrisy I suspect would be the case regarding equal support for a domestic uprising of that kind. I don't mean a one-day march where everyone goes home. I mean a sustained uprising that challenged the normal flow of daily business or that threatened to overthrow someone the political elite of this country supports."
