    Egypt's economy is spiraling fast. The protesters have about another week before food runs out. The regime could easily starve them into submission, especially with the Army protecting access to the government center.

    Why they don't organize to deliver food from suppliers to the city....

    Why they don't go ahead and elect a shadow parliament...

    Elections take longer than a week to organise, no?
    How do you propose a shadow Parliament is elected?

    And yes, the food situation is worrying. It needs to be sorted out

    Allowing the army, the MB and the Mubarackbots monitor elections would have been like allowing the Wermacht, the National Socialists the German Communist Party and Karl Doenitz moniter elections in post-WW2 germany. It would have been a goat ****.



    That's the point of fair objective elections. Previous elections were anything but and saying a majority of Egyptians used to favor Mubarak is groundless.
    Saying that a majority of Egyptians are in favor of Mubarack's ousting, is equally groundless.



    Absolutely not. Have you been following events??? MB and the organized opposition parties are playing catchup to the spontaneous demonstrations organized through previously unheard of youth, promoting through the net, twitter and texting. They are the ones who are really telling everyone that Mubarak must go.
    Whose been organizing them? Whose been inciting them? I believe that to say this is a 100% grassroots uprising is groundless.

    The US is great, of course, and has been since 1919. Since 1945 it is one of two superpowers, recently the only one. Very little in the world occurs without our support. I am very glad we are supporting Egypt's protesters, finally, MB and otherwise (secular).

    My only real issue is the hypocracy of our ideals and our foreign policy over the past 50 years. We should promote spreading democracy, popular revolutions, and use intervention to take down despots and autocrats and install democracies a la Iraq. Power to the people.

    So what is Obama saying about that Islamic Brotherhood?

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Everytime we do, the effort is undermined by the Libbos. They did a fine job of undermining our efforts to defeat Communism in Vietnam.

    LOL
    I'm impressed and highly flattered Somalia is being used a litmus tool to judge what countries are great.
    Every country is great then using that logic. So then US is not special or unique. Just one out of many

    You so fail at trying to insult. You've given me an ego boost.
    You mad Pirates are running rings around the world's navies to steal more? heh
