299. We just need to stop trying to control other sovereign nations.
It's not our business what type of government Egypt sets up if this mass uprising is successful.

We have a "terrorism" problem because historically this country has supported autocrats, dictators, juntas, and other nefarious but pro-US regimes in the Middle East, Latin America, Indochina... basically the whole world. That is why there is anti-American sentiment in many different areas of the world. Our hands are dirty and stained with blood. We don't have the right or moral authority to tell some other country how they should be running their nation.

That said, Egypt is so diverse, I don't think that we're looking at a potential theocracy at all.
