I am totally in agreement with Richard Cohen's July 10 column ("Maybe Egypt doesn't really need a democracy"). We are still working on our democracy, as he mentioned, after 237 years. Many civilizations have a bit more experience on making it work for them. So I say, They may want our prosperity and economic gains as it appears, but, "Why should everyone in the world want to be like us"?
