Lack of principles

The US government -at least part of it- sends a "diplomat", Frank Wisner, to help get dictator Mubarak out of government in Egypt and the bloke turns out to say "President Mubarak's continued leadership is critical: it's his opportunity to write his own legacy". And then we find out Mr Wisner works for a law firm which is paid by Mr Mubarak.

Meanwhile, the Venezuelan military regime does not know exactly what to say about Mubarak. First they started to criticize Mubarak, then they became silent when they realised the Chinese were not happy about Mubarak going. They also felt puzzled Gadaffi is nervous as well. They probably thought they were doing the right thing. They would probably have done the opposite of whatever the US government would have done, had it done it early on.

Unfortunately, I can't link to the latest articles at the sites of the Venezuelan regime because their servers are down. Venezuela's Internet service has been going down the drain lately.
