Egypt - A Country in Despair

It is truly tragic to hear of the assaults on journalists that have happened when people tried to get rid of Hosni Mubarak. What a sad testimony to leave behind in a fight for democracy that people can't respect the role of mass media as part of the process...

How can anyone expect Egypt to rise above dictatorships when the population itself understands so little about what democracy is all about?

Egypt is a country in despair. People will wait long before enjoying their next vacation in that country when people have been so abusive during the crisis as to even sexually molest a CBS journalist.

So winning in the sense of getting rid of Hosni Mubarak was one thing. They have lost much respect among civilized people, and those scars will take long to heal.

What are your thoughts about Egypt? You're welcome to leave a comment. :-)
