Don't believe the hype!

Abu Aardvark points out this story about Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak cracking down on the Muslim Brotherhood when they started holding demos and forming an opposition party, arresting some 70 activists. Do you think George Bush will step forward and speak up for the democratic rights of Islamists? Considering it's longstanding U.S. policy to smile and nod benignly while Egypt beats the shit out of the Ikhwan, my guess is: no.

Kodos would say: "Democracy for some, brutal detention for others."
