The Arab Spring sprung what exactly? I wonder if the neolibs who were full of glee realize how naive they are.

Egyptians rally to protest military 'dictatorship' - World news - Mideast/N. Africa - msnbc.com

"The protest ... is to reclaim power from the army and oppose Silmi's document," said Mohamed Fathi from the youth group the Front to Protect the Revolution.

The military assumed control of the government since February, and have not held elections as they promised in September.

So people should just keep quiet when one dictator is replaced with another?

I would hope they would not. But how could these people expect anything else when they live in a society where people are oppressed by a religion that puts women at the bottom of the barrell?

Those men you see protesting in that square for "freedom" have no issue with a society that accepts domestic violence against women.
