Quote: Originally Posted by Crane's LOLWUT? Are you implying that you were unaware of the active US support of Mubarak, and of Mubarak's policies towards the Egyptian population? Given the US tradition in supporting despots, are you also unaware of the support of the Shah of Iran and of Pinochet in Chile? This isn't exactly a new practice on the part of the US.

Stop trying to complain for the sake of appearing like a "cool big city urbanite." I don't think you get it - people that live in CT...
I figured this was due for a bump.
