Divided you fall

Last year the people of Egypt had a chance to become a true democratic society, instead they fought each other. The Brotherhood and the secularists should have known that the military was working and waiting to take back power and so worked together to consolidate their gains. Instead they get this:

Egypt’s ousted leader Hosni Mubarak was released from prison Thursday and transported to a military hospital in a Cairo suburb where he will be held under house arrest, according to state TV.

Prime Minister Hazem el-Beblawi had ordered that Mubarak be put under house arrest as part of the emergency measures imposed this month after a wave of violence sparked by the ouster of Islamist leader Mohammed Morsi, who had succeeded Mubarak as Egypt’s first freely elected President.

Thursday’s move followed a court decision ordering Mubarak’s release in relation to charges of receiving gifts from a state-owned newspaper.

Good job guys, you had a once in a lifetime opportunity and you blew it.
