Robert Tom;inson Posted about 1 year ago US relations with Egypt I disagree about the US being "the world's cop". It is hugely hypocritical, even cowardly, to condemn an action or regime but continue as if nothing has happened. I agree that, especially in Egypt, military intervention is not the best course of action, but because it would not work practically, and not because no other country has the "right" to intervene. The Egyptian people threw out a government they did not want, and then effectively did the same to another. Now they are dying in their thousands in their attempts to do the same to another, but this time it has the power to suppress them. A US intervention would not be not exporting democracy by force of arms; it would be protecting the fledgling democracy that the Egyptian people are ready and calling for.
