Lessons of Egypt ignored

David Super's commentary ("U.S. is short-sighted in Egypt," Nov. 10) overlooks or chooses to ignore several facets of the Arab Spring and this country's role.

Does Mr. Super not remember President Barack Obama demanding that President Hosni Mubarak resign his presidency? Does he not view that as our interfering and involving ourselves in the internal affairs of another country (an ally no less)? Was that "dithering?"

Does Mr. Super not remember what happened to the certain other minorities under the Mohammed Morsi regime as well as their relations with this country? Can he really point to any lasting progress anywhere that came out of the Arab Spring? Has he forgotten Benghazi, or does he just choose to ignore it as all good liberals do?

Perhaps it is time for us to stop trying to impose our agenda on other countries in the world. We may disagree, strongly, with how they run themselves, but it is up to them, not to us. The liberal agenda seems to be to build those countries in Mr. Obama's image. That has failed here and around the world. It is time they accepted it.
