Egypt 2011

Are we on the right side of what's going on in Egypt?  I see VP Biden is supporting President Mubarak by saying Mubarak's not a dictator... but the guy's been running Egypt since Sadat was assassinated in 1981... he routinely arrests his political opposition and now he's pulled the plug on the Internet in Egypt.  If Mubarak crushes this uprising... how are all those protesting going to feel about America, which not only didn't speak out for them (just like we didn't speak out for the protesters in Iran), but we spoke out for the anti-democratic ruler.

We seem to seek stability more than democracy.
