Can it be that a country has brought about peaceful change without the intervention of the US.
This must be Egyptian exceptionalism.
Can it Be?
Can it be that the biggest country in the Middle East is solving its own problems without the intervention of America?

The Egyptian people can now claim a special place in history of democratic reforms–and without outside help.
