You still need to be present, not urban areas, knowing that a new wave of Supes readers were right around the corner?WITH THISWEEKs release of "Man of Steel Many military leaders have trained at Western institutions They have the support of secular Egyptians and they are fighting a legitimate battle against the forces of radical Islam which will otherwise engulf Egypt just as they engulfed Iran Although nobody said so explicitly this was clearly the view of the Obama administration in the wake of Secretary of State John F Kerry put it best in an unguarded moment when he was speaking on Pakistani television " all of whom were afraid of a descent into chaos" he declared "In effect they were restoring democracy"The United States and the West should support the Muslim Brotherhood Mohamed Morsi may not have been the most effective leader of Egypt but now he is effectively under arrest Never mind that Morsis instincts were anti-liberal or that his clear intention was to place the Muslim Brotherhood in control of Egypts judicial and political institutions We ought to have supported him when he was in power and now that he is out of power his cause is even more important and tortured We should organize ourselves on their behalf and in their defense Both arguments have merit But both also have a central flaw especially when made through tweets sound bites press releases and other nuance-free forms of communication They divide the Egyptian scene into two warring camps Morsi vs the generals secular vs Islamic military vs Brotherhood thus tempting everyone to take sides Which is ridiculous since its none of our business who runs Egypt and we shouldnt be "backing" anybody at all Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel came close to this viewthis week that "Its up to the Egyptian people And they are a large great sovereign nation And it will be their responsibility to sort this out" But neither Hagel nor anyone else in the administration has taken the next logical step True its up to the Egyptian people Also true we shouldnt back one group over another in Egypt or anywhere else Those sorts of political games have won the United States an appalling reputation in the Middle East and elsewhere because they invariably backfire We support the "pro-Americans" ignore their unpopularity and are shocked when they fall Or we support the "modernizers" who then turn out to be dictators and we are shocked when they fall The particularly virulent strain of anti-Americanism in Egypt comes in part from our mostly uncritical support for Egyptian dictators in the past But there is another way to think about all this The United States can and should stand for the rule of law stable institutions and democracy And by "democracy" I mean not just an election organized by the international community but the principle that power should change hands peacefully inclusively and according to a set of rules accepted by all social groups In societies such as Egypt or Syria the advocacy of democracy isnt ideology but common sense The alternative after all is that power changes hands violently that some ethnic or religious groups are left out of the political process and that social discontent remains very high Had the Obama administration thought about Egypt in these terms it might have had a rational intelligible policy over the past several years When Hosni Mubarak was in power we should have pressured him loudly and clearly to hold elections When Morsi was president we should have called on him equally loudly and clearly to share power with other groups to make concessions to minorities to make sure that a flawed constitution was interpreted as fairly as possible Now that the military is in power we should come out loudly and clearly against its coup and use whatever limited influence we have to persuade the generals to return Egypt to constitutional rule It sounds simple but of course it isnt If Kerry can confuse a millions-strong demonstration with "democracy" and if President Obama cant bring himself to use the word "coup" then it will be difficult for this administration to be clear firm and consistent about the events unfolding not only in Egypt but also in Syria Libya and elsewhere around the worldRead more from or We’re not guys who are out on the street,After the Philadelphia Eagles’ practice ended and Riley Cooper and Cary Williams had gone to their neutral corners He was among Post reporters awarded the 2002 Pulitzer Prize for national reporting. including nuclear weapons and arms control, obviously.Do Romneys revenue hikes truly represent a 1, the increases brought in a total of $2.
