I have learned from Fousesquawk garyfouse.blogspot.com that the Aryan err the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood has made threats to demolish the Pyramids. I would have to assume the Sphinx is in danger also. Why? Well because they predate Islam (what doesn't?). One has to wonder how much of this is rhetoric and how much can be taken seriously. These ancient structures belong not only to the people of Egypt but to mankind in general. It would be a travesty if any damage occurred. Does NATO need to send a force to guard against their destruction? At some point there will need to be a military buffer force along the Suez to guard against Islamist tampering with world trade. I suppose a division could be spared for the Pyramids also. I jest of course. I think.
The problem as I see it is, by and large. Mohammedans are like juvenile delinquents that need to be sanctioned. They are destructive, primitive, and just generally an all around pain in the ass to the rest of the world. Nothing more. The gift of democracy is likely wasted on them and, when it comes down to it, this same highly touted Muslim democracy probably will morph into a destructive force that will need to be slapped down vigorously at some point.
I have said before that some sort of autocracy or military junta is the only way that most Mohammedan countries can be governed. Muslim "democracy" puts us all in at least some danger. I wonder why our recent presidents' and their Ivy League advisers don't recognize this. Western liberal democracy is not the necessarily the "fix" to all the evils in the world. When Muslim nations fall into the trap of the Islamists, it matters little whether these forces were elected or gained power the old fashioned way. The end result may well be the same. Remember, one A. Hitler was legally elected.
How did that work out?
