    I think it has done quite well.

@irishgenius 

People hate America because it has supported brutal dictatorships for a century, all for its own economic interests. People have a right to hate you when you support their oppressors.

Yep nobody cares about Syria. But Libya is very close to Europe and there are a lot of European companies... so a lot of interests to protect. Not so many in Syria...

Re: The Arab spring.




I think that it isn't a good thing for Tunisia or Libya. Both these countries were in a relatively good economic situation. For Egypt it was a good thing, definitely.

Now, Libya and Tunisia are going to go threw a dark period 'especialy Libya) and I don't think that this whole revolution would have been very helpful. Sure there will be democracy but was it really worth it? We'll see. hum2

@irishgenius Well I guess we will not know until time tells and things do or do not get better for the Egyptions. And it is the Arab Egyptions we are talking about isn't it? Because a quarter or so of the population of Egypt are Coptic Christian Egyptions who are descendants of the ancient Egyptions and whos langaue is a derivative of ancient Egyption. There are about 20 million of them and 55 million Arab Egyptions. The Arabs are and have been pursecuting the Coptics for years if not for ever.
