Spreading Democracy

Don't think Bush's words mean anything to those around the world seeking a democratic government? They meant something to protesters in Egypt:
About 100 people have taken part in a rare anti-government demonstration in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, demanding free elections for the presidency.

Reports say thousands of policemen were deployed near the Cairo international book fair, where the protest occurred. Protesters carried placards calling for an end to the rule of President Hosni Mubarak, who may run for a sixth term.
What was that about democracy spreading in the middle east?
