ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The United States seems to be torn between dictatorial leaders in the Middle East who protect U.S. interests, and the legitimate democratic aspirations of the people of those countries who want to emulate the principles of America.

Unfortunately, dictatorships like Egypt’s under Hosni Mubarak seem to serve U.S. interests better than democracies. Such dictatorships usually are more stable and reliable.
