Egypt - Congratulations!

The easy part of the transition to the new order is done.

Watching the coverage of the post-Mubarak rally on Al Jazeera, on CNN and on NBC, it goes against our expectations, forged as they have been by armed insurrections in Vietnam, in Iran, in Afghanistan.

The congratulations all of us should shower on the Egyptian people are for the transition to a new government certainly, but also and perhaps more importantly, for not allowing violence to be a tool of protest.

For this, thanks. All the best as the world changes.
