Walter Russell Mead sinks to musty exhortation:

Time and money are running out before economic conditions for ordinary Egyptians lurch even further downward. Egypt’s new, government absolutely must find some way to restore stability and rebuild confidence, or things will get much, much uglier.

    I will resist the temptation to beat up on the weak. My condolences to the Mead family.

    Somebody get the guy a ticket to Cairo so he can extend his exhortations to those who need them.

    Give him credit for exploring a whole new rhetorical strategy — I’m tempted to call it ‘muscular hand-wringing’

    Can someone organize a ‘Egyptian Social Justice Tour’? How much would a 747-full of one-way tickets cost?

    If WRM actually cared about the Egyptians, he would have supported the Muslim Brotherhood.

    The goal of the MB under Khairat al-Shater is not imposing Sharia law, but rather creating a free market type of society moralized by conservative Islamism. They are perhaps more conservative than their Turkish counterparts, but moderate compared to the Saudis or the Iranians.
