Retiring Dictator Finally Obeys The Will of Egyptians, Ends Dictatorial Decree

An excerpt from "Egypt president scraps decree that sparked protests" (Reuters):
Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi has cancelled a decree that gave him sweeping powers and sparked deadly violence, but did not delay this month's referendum on a new constitution as his opponents had demanded.

The announcement that Mursi had scrapped his November 22 decree followed hours of talks on Saturday at his presidential palace, billed as a "national dialogue" but which was boycotted by his main opponents and had little credibility among protesters.

One opposition group dismissed Mursi's efforts at appeasement as the "continuation of deception."

What can we conclude from this? Protests work. That's why the Obama administration acted so quickly to destroy the Occupy movement and get protesters off the streets.
