40 years, Egypt is one of our main allies in the Middle East.
Obama supports that demonstrations, the “Arab Spring”.
8 days of demonstrations and Obama demands the ouster of Mubarak.
Mubarak leaves and Obama insists on immediate elections.

Repeat in each sovereign country in the Middle East.
Practice the “unexpectedly” part.
