Pressman comments on Egypt and wider Middle East

In a post on Prof. Juan Cole’s blog, Prof. Jeremy Pressman considers the impact of the protest movement in Egypt on U.S. policy in the Middle East. Pressman claims that while “U.S. policy on the Gulf side of the Mideast has long been fluid and ever-changing, the Egyptian protests have suddenly challenged a different and seemingly fixed guideline: Washington can rely on pro-U.S. dictators and not push hard for democratic regimes.”
