It was never a surprise for me to know that the Western political right represented by Maggie Thatcher and others looked with sympathetic eyes the neo-liberal economic reforms pushed by force and anti-democratic means in chile during Pinochet's dictatorship.
In the same vein, one shouldn't be surprised that an important Western media outlet like the WSJ wishes Egypt's generals to follow Pinochet's example with his shock and anti-democratic economic policies. After all, dictatorships have never been a big problem for them when they happen in third world nations populated by brown people.
