    Good, their problem. Now get a strong constitution together to avoid this mess again and that'll be step one

    [quote] Yavuz Baydar, a journalist from Turkey, believes that the government of Turkey is prepared to assist the interim government in Egypt in helping shape a framework for a government similar to their own.

    I think this is very important because Turkey is THE model that most countries point to as an example of a successful Democratic government that is also in a majority Muslim country. [/quote]

    This is exactly what needs to happen

    It will be what it will be. The current status que is unacceptable. Change is always scary but change is enivitable.

    The Islamic republics will also fail.

    [quote]But the critical moment came on the evening of 30 January when, it is now clear, Mubarak ordered the Egyptian Third Army to crush the demonstrators in Tahrir Square with their tanks after flying F-16 fighter bombers at low level over the protesters.

    Many of the senior tank commanders could be seen tearing off their headsets over which they had received the fatal orders to use their mobile phones. They were, it now transpires, calling their own military families for advice. Fathers who had spent their lives serving the Egyptian army told their sons to disobey, that they must never kill their own people. [/quote]

    That's powerful stuff. The only thing that held Mubarak back from slaughtering his people was an army with a conscience. I hope the guy burns
