Egypt and the Revolution

This link from Tea at Trianon shows the dangers of believing that the Egyptian revolution will bring about democracy. History shows that this is usually not the case...

...Since the French Revolution in 1789, revolutions have shown common features that are directly relevant to what is happening in Egypt right now. Since the final outcome in Egypt after Mubarak’s ouster– a new regime — may be weeks, even months or years, away, it is worth pausing to take the long view...

Thanks and a tip of the beret to Elena-Maria.
