The People have Spoken. Now What?

The handwriting has been on the wall for a few days now. It was sure that Mubarak would step down either sooner or later. It is good I suppose that the army did not fire on protesters and as of now very few lives have been lost on the street. Everyone is happy. Our president is pleased and of course any ally of ours must be wondering if they will be dropped in the grease when the going gets tough. After the honeymoon wears off and the Muslim Brotherhood becomes a force in the region things will not look so rosy. I hope the West has some contingency plan to seize and defend the Suez. Hate to be so pessimistic but if we are not prepared...
