    If the likes of Mubarak are Tamagotchi's, who was the pet-holder for all this time?

    US thinktanks give lessons in foreign policy | World news | guardian.co.uk

    The article is from 2002 and examines the situation why Faculty Members of the Universities stand no chance against the people of the think-tanks in public debate.

    An University Professor would probably say, that it isn't a good idea to support a Dictator.
    A think-Tank, maybe in mission to Lobby for a specific foreign nation, will probably say, that it's the best thing to have people like Mubarak governing the country, who is delivering stability on the border - even if that means, that civil society within the country is being oppressed.

    What's the reason, that US policy through the decades has witnessed an Axis-Shift away from promoting Human Rights to supporting Dictators like Mubarak?

    Support to Egypt (Mubarak) was essential for Israel to develop.

    That's the reason why USA will be with nothing (influence) left in the new Middle-East.
    With dictators in place, the game was not about winning hearts and minds of the Middle-Eastern people. Now the game is changing, and that 'hearts and minds'-thing you've already lost.

    Hard to be US diplomat these days with Israel-centered Mid-East foreign policy.

    But very easy to be an ottomaniacal president nutjob in charge of Turkey with its Israel-centered mideast foreign policy.

    The British Queen knighted the 'ottomaniacal president' in Istanbul.
    With the Knight Grand Cross he joins people like Reagan and Father Bush.
    For you it is 'Sir'.
