a large explosion in Suez....
ok firstly .......the link above does this story no justice...but i had to provide one...i was speaking to a friend in egypt on the phone, so this
info is fresh....:
a vast site, near the canal, by the populous city of Suez, a national asset, employing well over its quota. a true asset to the people.
to understand the severity of this situation....
the last time this nasr petroleum company had an incident. was during a war with isreal when 2 tanks exploded from air attacks.
thats like 50 years incident free....now when there is no president..this happens
considering, that was war, and they lost only two tanks compared with todays 5 tanks which exploded!
suez is relevant because
main city bordering sinai and isreal
large milittary presence following revolution
the main/important military zone for egypt
revoltuion started in suez... ie. first police station to be burned down, first place army was deployed. etc
also i dont know if its relevant....
today is an anniversary of oil rations being lifted after the suez canal crisis in 1957
so then.....is this dodgy....some /most in egypt think so....?
lets stay ahead of the curve......after all, the meek will inherit this earth..
(visit the link for the full news article)
just realised!!...its also time for the presidential elections...
