End times for a tyrant

It is obvious the Egyptian people who oppose Mubarak's 30-year hold on power are inspired by a collective vision of a future Egypt as a batter and, certainly, far more democratic nation than it presently is. Unfortunately, Prime Minister Stephen Harper prefers to play it safe, to tender lukewarm support to the remnant of the old regime, to remain more or less with the discredited status quo. Like George H. W. Bush, he, too, appears congenitally incapable of grasping "that vision thing."
