    That's fine...for countries that actually need to protect their freedoms with the finest military hardware in the world. When we sell weapons to a place like Egypt, they are just used to repress the people.

    The point is, they would have gotten the weapons from somebody. Egypt has been buying weapons from Russia for decades. If we hadn't sold them weapons, they would have just bought them from the Ruskies.

    It's irrelevant to the larger picture.

    Mubarack repressed the people and now the Muslim Brotherhood is going to repress the people.

    I reckon when the MB turns out to be as bad as Mubarack, that'll be our fault, too. The stupidity has to end, at some point.

    Given that a third of this message is also incomprehensible, could I suggest you stop posting until you can either type properly or put some thought into what you are posting. I'm not taking cheap shots, I'm saying that others on the forum deserve your attention and aren't interested in your texting from a subway train... or whatever. Iran is to the east of Israel, Egypt to the south btw.

    Well it depends, if you are in Tel-Aviv and you start heading directly south you're bound to cross the border, but overall you're correct.

    I'll go with that. My point was that the guy was posting garbled, shoddy and inaccurate posts because he was on the move and couldn't give his writing the attention everyone else tries to give theirs. In such circumstances, don't post. "Simples", as the meerkats might say. Even once this was pointed out, in his last post, he made ten grammatical or orthographical mistakes in just one post of half-a-dozen lines. We all make mistakes. I know I make loads, but that degree of shoddy posting deserves to be pointed out.

    I got what he was getting at. Then again, I'm familiar with the geography of the region. Seems that some folks on this post have never looked at a map of the ME before, in their lives. That's the only way I could explain some of the goofball posts about the tatical scenarios

    His promise is nothing more than a trick. Don't believe it Egyptians! He will **** up with the elections again and he has made no promise to not install his own son

    Continue till he dies and/or leaves. Preferably drops dead but hey, I don't make up the rules.

    This is merely stage 2 of the operation. Tunisia's President did the same thing.
    Offer reforms and concessions
    Offer to step down
    Flees to Saudi Arabia >.<

    Yeah, and if you headed out Dallas, due south, you would run into Mexico, but Mexico isn't south of The United States.

    Just like, if you headed east out of Nizzana, you would reach the Egyptian border.
