Revolutions are often blood thirsty and one oppressor is soon replaced by another

Listening and reading those egging on the uprising in Egypt, like the BBC. I can't help thinking that something far worse may be round the corner.

Often, though not always, one oppressor is replaced by one far worse.

An Egypt that wasn't at least neutral to Israel almost guarantees a full blown regional and maybe world war.

Certain religious groups will guarantee oppression on an Iranian scale.

But still the cheers from the west are for the rioters and those who want to spin the barrel of the pistol and pull the trigger one more time.

Update: This analysis from the Quilliam foundation is perhaps more optimistic. But you have to ask who pulls their strings ?

Yes, this is the big danger - what replaces it.
