I thought you might be interested in what Danielle Pletka (email@example.com), Vice President for Foreign and Defense Policy Studies at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), had to say about the decision of the Egyptian High Court to dissolve the new parliament:
- The Egyptian revolution has become a slow-motion train wreck, a cliff notes version of how not to win a revolution
- The faults don’t all lie with the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, or the Muslim Brotherhood, or the public that isn’t sure what it wants. It also lies with:
- a liberal opposition that knows its values but can’t seem to find either a party or a candidate to express them
- the international community, which has made clear that even though Mubarak is gone, gee, they kinda miss him (yes, I mean you Obama White House)
- an entrenched Arab leadership in the Gulf that has viewed the changes in Egypt with horror and done everything possible to undermine them.
