Egypt in flux

It is not because I support Hosni Mubarak; I confess ignorance of the region an it's politics. But any ruler in power for 30 years fails any sanity test for a democracy.

It is not that I fear the people protesting in the streets. They hunger for freedom like every human does.

But I am old enough to know this can very well go from a bad situation to an even worse one.

And as America has fueled the Mubarak monarchy for 30 years, I pray tonight the US Marines in our embassy in Cairo are locked and loaded.
