The anguish of a struggle for democratic government

You would think, wouldn't you, that establishing a democratic government in a country would be a fairly straightforward process, once you have removed power from a previous dictatorship?

That it isn't straightforward at all is beautifully illustrated by what's going on in Egypt at the moment.

I can't help the feeling that the situation there is heading towards a series of serious confrontations between the populace and the military.

I took issue with Flak999 because he opined that Africa was so far beyond redemption as to be unworthy of consideration.
