Ugly Americans

Amidst the coverage of the revolution happening in Egypt, there are some embarrassing interviews with American tourists. One couple who looked to be in their 60s were disappointed and angry that the Pyramids were closed and their "trip of a lifetime" was ruined. Shots of Americans pushing and shoving in the Cairo airport make you wonder what they were expecting when they travelled to a place of unrest. They don't want to cut short their trips but are annoyed that the departure exodus is not better orchestrated and controlled. Is it any wonder that the US is not popular in the Mid-East? How inconvenient that an overthrow of the govenment disrupted their plans. It does give you pause.
