    If the Egyptians are no longer willing to tolerate oppression by their government, let them change it. The US foreign policy has been to support dictators who bow to their wishes. That works as long as the dictators remain in power. But like in Iran, eventually said dictator is overthrown. Is it any surprise they are replaced by those who hate the US? Another case of reaping what you sow. Perhaps the US and Israel will reconsider their policy of embracing dictators.
