    Democrats AND Republicans have the same commitment to democracy in Egypt as they have in Honduras.

    In 2009 there was a military coup against the democratically elected government of Honduras. The rest of the world, including the Organization of American States, refused to send observers to monitor the rigged elections that followed.

    The IRI and its Democrat counterpart, the National Democratic Institute, were dispatched to legitimate the "election."

    It's hardly surprising some Egyptians see the IRI and NDI as stooges for US empire.
