Ashton takes flak in EU Parliament for weak statements on Egypt, Tunisia


Sanchez: The EU must back these transition processes so as not to frustrate the desire for.. ..freedom in these friendly countries. Also, it is our responsibility to raise awareness on the dangers of these processes.. ..making sure that they’re not kidnapped by the enemies of freedom and democracy. Verhofstadt: We’re afraid of sending the wrong message, we’re scared of an Islamic government post-election. I’ll tell you now, I’m not afraid, i’ve lots of confidence in the Tunisian and Egyptian people.

  1. Ah! Guy Verhofstadt's way off! Islamist movements in Tunisia and Egypt are very frightening, especially considering the destabilising effect they could have in the region.

  2. What is democracy? Do elections deliver such things? American aid monies spent worldwide protect the interests of the USA. Is it better to have a dictator that obeys USA needs or an election that delivers a democracy that may be as corrupt as the former ways. When leadership, true leadership is missing and society and states have no values beyond that of commercial interest the results are now being shown in the world.
