Ash is a friend of fair thinking. Of course, the Neocon shills and Christian Zionists at the Elephant Barcan scarcely contain their glee at the prospect of more suffering for the Egyptian people, and continue to vaunt their 'realistic' perspective that brutality always wins. They need to believe that, because it's their only weapon against human freedom. And anybody can be sacrificed as long as their interests are preserved.
Those of us who support the struggle of the Egyptians to rid themselves of tyranny do not need to be reminded that evil often wins; we have seen it over and over again!!! The revolution hangs in the balance, and anyone with a shred of decency will be hoping that through their determination and commitment to non-violent change the pro-democracy demonstrators will ultimately triumph!!!
If you can't say something constructive, and all you have to offer is pessimistic predictions of disaster with malignant 'I told you so's, you have no place in a sensible, civilised conversation.
Neocon shills at the EB? Hardly. As you can see in the video, the "Neocons" were calling for Democracy in Egypt back in 2005. Christian Zionists at the EB? Maybe one or two. Regardless, Neocons and Christians do not delight in the suffering of the Egyptian people. But they are concerned about Islamist control spreading throughout the Arab countries and into the Islamic Arc.
