1. And the perpetrators of the Cairo massacres? When does Sisi go on trial?

I guess after the next revolution.

3. Kind of playing out like the French Revolution now

Who is the current enemy of the people?
Mubarek, Morsi or perhaps later al-Sisi?

4. And Mubarak was freed

Hmmmm. Yeah, totally ok to violently overthrow a democratically elected government. Because this side is not 'extremist'.

5. Funny how the Egyptian army can attack their own people

And overthrow an elected government, but we give that a pass.

Even with the best of intentions, intervening in other countries' civil wars and internal strife leads to contradiction and inconsistency. There is a tendency to cherry pick the situations that serve your own ends, even when you try to be even handed.
