Westerns should question their governments' support for regimes like Mubarak

For example, US governments over the past 30 years have ignored the dictatorship of Mubarak and various human rights abuses by his regime on the people of Egypt, while it gives about one billion in aid to the Mubarak regime each year. Then when the Egyptians have had enough, the US government starts talking democracy and freedom of expression and protest in Egypt.

If the people who comprise western goverments are not representative of core western values, why are they in power?
