Egypt, again

Despite all the misgivings I find myself wishing victory to the protesters in Egypt. Not that my wishing makes any difference.

It is very, very refreshing to see protesting in an Islamic country that does not center around "Death to USA / Israel / West", with the usual flag burning and vows to revenge.

I also hope that the protesters succeed. Setting up an example that (relatively) peaceful mass protests are more effective than blowing yourself up would be very important step to restore sanity in middle east.

Mubarak is 82 years old, so his regime days are numbered anyways. If the protesters do not succeed, we get another dictator (who might not be moderate as Mubarak!) or another Iran.
