*sigh*

One can only hope those are not representative of the whole. Charles cited a poll about this recently.

It's going to be some time before things settle down. The Egyptians are going to have to choose between war or agriculture. I suspect the generals would hope for agriculture. And it might be their call.

Importing 80% of your wheat is a desperate situation.

With selective interviewing in our country, you would find a whoooooole lot of people saying that all Muslims should be locked up and deported. That however is not the prevailing consensus of our people, and obviously our government would never consider giving into the whims of the crazies. I'm hopeful the same can be said of Egypt even with the radical branches of the Muslim Brotherhood (and these fine exemplary citizens so clearly expressing their opinions) that surely will be trying to infiltrate the mood and tone of the country's agenda. Either way I'm sure the military will push as hard as they can for peace with Israel because with all things considered, they receive a hefty check from Uncle Sam that will come to a screeching halt even at the slightest sign of aggression.

Time will tell. Many people believe that the Egyptians are oh so open minded and want democracy. I am not so sure.

Guess which country has loads of expertise growing food in an arid climate? It's not just about the Uncle Sam check. If the core issue is food, then food is the primary concern and should be the primary project.

One regime doesn't seem to think that that is the primary concern (N. Korea) and others are continually running their countries into the ground in order to make a statement of defiance to the modern, peaceful contingent of the world. (Iran and Venezuela are two that come to mind) I stick to my assumption that if some bad apples with power start cultivating bad ideas in Egypt to unravel peace (which I don't think will happen, at least I really hope) than the military would probably intervene and stop those ideas from taking root--and the 1.4 billion a year financial stimulus would probably have a lot to do with that.

re: #6 tacuba14

I think that we are agreeing. Nations cannot be stable unless the food supply is stable. Yes, some tyrannies have chosen to ignore this. It would be a shame if Egypt went in that direction.

However, if the next Egyptian heads of state try to stabilize the food supply, Israel has the knowledge on how to do this. Yes, the check from the US is important, and combined with good agricultural techniques and technology, it is even more helpful.
