    Let me ask you a question: what rule book is the army bound to, at this point? There isn't one, anymore. Is it?




    ohhhhhh, so now our relationship with Egypt is a good thing?



    Yeah, and now there is a new order and the army is it. I'm betting they'll gladly light up the protestors to protect the new order.



    I believe that there will continue to be a one party system in place, as well.
    come september - the projected election time - we will know which one of us is correct
    willing to wager on it. whoever is wrong must step out of this place?

    Have you ever even been to Egypt? Served with Egyptian soldiers? Trained Egyptian soldiers?

    I have.

    Let me clue you in on something. There is no such thing as an, "unlawful order", in the Egyptian army. Summary executions are legal in the Egyptian army. If Egyptian soldiers are ordered to fire on civilians, then they'll open fire on civilians.

    Seems I'm probably more familiar with the region than you are.

    That's kinda stupid.

    But, you're right. When/if the elections take place--whenever that is--we shall see.

    I don't understand how you can be so optimistic, given Egypt's history and the current events on the ground.

    since you are so certain of your beliefs, why the hesitation to accept the wager

    We shall wait and see where the Egyptian nation is heading to before we start celebrating.

    I never said I am certain. I've only said that I'm pesimistic about the outcome.

    That's what I'm screaming.

    The People cheered Nasser, too.

    .
    He didn't have a plan. Now many of the leaders in the Middle East are angry and wary of America since Obama threw an old ally like Mubarak under the bus without hesitation.

    Reminds me of the old saying "be careful what you wish for".
