    what a fuck face.

    i'm fully expecting him to do something stupid, like hang around Egypt and run under some new party, sweep elections, and become "elected" Grand Pharaoh King of de Nile.

    Smooth operatin' by Barry and Co.

    Successfully showed the international game players that 'Merica won't just sweep 30 years of being an ally for idealistic notions but at the same time came out on the good side of the grass root uprisers.

    Playing both sides and coming out the winner, the true goal of diplomacy.

    Next step: Muslim Brotherhood takes over, forget democracy.

    Well.

    One does imagine the CIA, MI6 and the other 3 word acronym agencies have enough of an active playbook to push it towards some kind of representative democracy anyway, so it can still act as a puppet for the west (hey, better than religious fanaticism - I'd rather they be corrupt than insane).

    From the live feeds going on right now, you'd imagine that Egypt was the capital of slavery and oppression for the last 30 years. Way to drama it up, the victor does indeed write history.

    It's no coincidence that the Egyptian military has been conducting its policy in the same exact manner as the US government has.

    Since, ya know, we bought them all their shit and fund them to the tune of a billion a year.

    Candidates the US approves of will be funneled and sussed out so that they both appeal to our needs of Egypt in that region and at the same time what the majority wants.

    Well.

    I'm gonna ignore the rest of the stupid in your post for now, but can we please stop this? People who actually know what they are talking about say that at best the Muslim Brotherhood would get around 20% of the vote, and the MB themselves have said that they wish to contribute to the nation's future but do not want to rule it, and will not be putting forward their own candidate for President.

    you're...you're not really familiar with just how bad Mubarak and his security forces had been, huh.

    like, secret arrests, tortures, Coptic Christians being tortured and killed, government-backed kidnappings, all on top of the "usual" corruption.

    i'm going to ignore your posts BlackDove, and instead comment on how hilarious it is watching everyone on CNN scramble to figure out what the fuck just happened.

    Mubarak definitely trolled the world.

    I was reading a piece on the NYT about a week back about whether Turkey could provide a viable example of what Egypt could do, assuming Mubarak left and the military was put in charge.

    Time to find out.

    Elections were slated for September.

    Now the military is in charge. Do they go ahead with the elections? Do they delay it to give political parties time to form and organize? Do they hold on to power?
