Interesting how leftists want to see the protests in Egypt as anti-capitalist.

Responding to someone else on Facebook: "This is part of a slowly developing but huge shift in the political cultures of the Middle East. Monarchies and dictators are now scared. US and Israeli and Europhile support [colonialist, anti-democratic and "anti-capitalist" in the sense that its defenders define capitalism] for monarchies and dictatorships is being overwhelmed by the newly aspirant Arab middle classes. It's a widespread capitalist revolution, slow-moving until recently; a modern revolution without 'modernist', utopian fantasies."

Interesting also that US connections to the Egyptian military are discussed openly by some people and not others.
The administration is not sitting around and waiting, they're working as hard as they can.
