That's a pretty simplistic summary, but the nearest I can figure is its a, "Same shit, different country" kinda deal.
It seems though the US has to step in and "police" everything that goes on. I understand trying to keep tensions low and not make anybody upset, but some things we just shouldn't get involved with.
Is this connected to what happened in Egypt awhile ago by chance?
