Well this is interesting.

The Egyptian Nuke

Egypt is preparing for an Israeli pre-emptive strike by conducting its largest military exercise since before the Arab Spring. The exercise, known as Nasser-6, consisted of various units from Egypt’s air force, air defense, and army. The exercise focused on coordinating ground and air units and defending the Sinai Peninsula.

Egypt’s nuclear program is also ramping up with four announced nuclear power plants.

Egypt to build several nuclear energy plants

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on Monday announced plans to build several nuclear power plants, joining several Arab countries in the Middle East that recently have broadcast their own atomic energy ambitions.

Egypt has conducted nuclear experiments on a very small scale for the past four decades, but they have not included the key process of uranium enrichment, according to the IAEA.

Egypt having a nuclear program means they will be able to enrich uranium. Wouldn't even surprise me if Iran gave the technology to Egypt down the line.

Oh wait :
Ahmadinejad: Iran Ready to Share Nuclear, Technological Experience with Egypt

Who wants nukes in Egypt?
Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood Presses Government for Nuclear Weapons

Who's in control of Egypt now?
Landslide for Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt election

A LEADING member of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood is expected to be elected speaker of Egypt’s first freely elected parliament, set to be inaugurated today.

Freedom and Justice won 235 of the 498 elected seats, 47 per cent, in the people’s assembly. This amounted to a stunning landslide for the Brotherhood, a movement founded in 1938 that has survived by operating clinics, schools and welfare programmes for the poor and keeping a low political profile, backing independent parliamentary candidates but not running any of its own until the post-uprising poll.

And the US funds Egypt with foreign aid :
The U.S. currently gives the Egyptian military one-point-three billion dollars a year in foreign aid.

So with all this information, questions arise.

- Are the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood really in control?
- Are the current leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood pro-nuclear weapon program? How long before they can set one up?
- War with Egypt down the line?

I guess we will see in the next couple of years.

Could this be the Six-Day war 2.0? Could be but what will happen is that Israel will use this as an excuse to capture all the land from the river Egypt to the river Euphrates. Israel is happy about the arab spring because they can now say that Islam is rising up and they are about to attack us, giving them the perfect excuse to perform more war.
