What the Hell. I will also Pontificate on the "Egyptian Crisis"
Ok the Mohammedans are on the streets in Cairo, Alexandria, etc. I saw pics of some on camels. The cavalry I suppose. Did not see any flying carpets. I guess the Air Force was grounded for a bit. In all seriousness this a dangerous situation for those of us in the West, not to mention the "Zionist Entity." The problem here as I see it is that whatever govt that Egypt comes up with next will likely not honor the treaty with Israel, will probably be influenced by Islamists and therefore not friendly to Western (and other) Democracies, and will likely, much like Iran, be interested in exporting the "revolution" across the Muslim world. I am certainly all for people living in freedom and I do truly feel for those that thirst for such in this part of the world. Unfortunately their freedom is not of paramount importance at this time. What is of great importance however is the security of Israel, the status quo, the security of the Suez, and the security of the West. If hellish regimes need to be in place in that part of the world to ensure the above remains intact then so be it. A great many in this country and elsewhere need to grow up and look at the world the way it is instead of how they would like it to be. A Utopian is often a fool and I believe those that are immediately supportive of regime change in Egypt are not looking at the big picture. Perhaps they are not Utopians at all but just garden variety stupid.
