#1 Clinton said: "When we talk about supporting democracy, we mean real democracy."
Like we have in the US, where the duly-elected Lightbringer can void years of law and the expressed will of the people with the stroke of a pen.
Because it's better for us, or that only subset of 'us' about which he cares - Dem voters.

#2 "Real democracy means that no group or faction or leader can impose their will, their ideology, their religion, their desires on anyone else."
The obvious work-around is of course....Presidential Executive Order (EO).

#5 Egypt as a nation has existed well before the time of Christ. Some reports indicate it age reaches back as far as 3000 years. Appears they have survived quite handily without our incessant political meddling for most, or least 2700 or so of those 3000 years. I would suggest we permit them to continue without it.

#6 One would think that after 3000 years they would have something more to show for it.
