DP-J Also Not to Be Missed on Egypt



Text  



Read the whole post (“Compromise Is Impossible in Egypt”) at David’s NRO blog, but this is so right:

There is no democracy in Egypt, and never has been, and never will be until there are institutions to put it in place and people to ensure their proper working. No such institutions exist, and potential democrats are found, if at all, in a few think-tanks or Western universities. Identical in their pursuit of power, the army and the Muslim Brothers differ only in why they want power and what they will do with it. Elections, constitutions, law courts, are instruments of control disconnected from popular consent.
