    It will be interesting to see if Egypt and Libya make it on to our list of terrorist sponsor countries in the next decade.

    Of course, it probably won't matter since there will most likely be a nuclear exchange in that region within 10 years or so.
  2. Democracy doesnt work very well with an uneducated superstitious populace. they can be lead to vote against their own best interests.

    To paraphrase, it's the worst form of government there is, except for all the others.

  6. look at who we are about to elect. republicans have promised to eliminate the social safety net, while cutting taxes for the rich, if they are elected.
    they cant do it without getting the very people who would be hurt by eliminating those programs to vote for them. it looks like by using skillful manipulation through fear mongering through fox news and the like they just might accomplish the feat of getting people to vote against their own best interests and put the same people back in power that destroyed the economy in the first place.

    What do Americans expect after they prop-up repressive foreign dictators for decades? New Governments that are pro-US?

    The Egyptians should be thankful we helped Mubarak fuck over their country for the last 30 years!

    Use your head, please.
