While I truly hope this turns out well in the name of democracy, I cant allow myself to believe that it will. This 'revolution' does not seem to
have the 'normal' chain of events taking place.
Namely , there is no lech Walesa or Nelson Mandela type that the people are rallying behind.
This seems to be little more than spurred chaos without direction. Very soon, these people are likely to find them selves without food, fuel, or
electricity as the country may well be total disruption. And while the Muslim brotherhood may be but 15% (as someone mentioned), that 15% will then
have the position of a revolutionaries dream. And with Obama in the White house, any despot knows the time is now ripe. We can only hope the people of
Egypt are not hungry and easily swindled.
p.s. mikeboydUS some time ago, in another thread, you graciously suggested some books....wow what a rabbit hole!!! thanks again
