    as with obama's waffling statement - I have trouble really faulting people who (regardless of how they feel about the situation) are required to act as if the interests of US foreign policy in noted regional clusterfuck "the arab world" are /morally sound/.

    I suspect biden was dispatched specifically to blurt out "mubarak is not a dictator" so that the idea could enter the discussion from a Known Loose Cannon and obama's p. non-scolding speech could look slightly more scolding by comparison. but yup, obv mubarak is a dictator.

    what the hell is the best case scenario here anyway? coalition govt w/ the brohood and elbaradei? it's sorta unclear what kind of support elbaradei actually has beyond um... western journalists. not sure I want the MB anywhere near power. interim govt of technocrats until there's time for parties to coalesce, then elections?

    I've seen a general opinion is that the MB aren't nearly as powerful as they think they are and are unlikely to be able to a seize power because a)they have limited support from the populace b) the army want nothing to do with them.

    >Syrians inspired by both tunisia and Egypt are planning a collective protest against their corrupt Government on #Feb5

    >Calls for anti-regime protests in #Algeria on 12 February

    >The Syrian and Sudanese have set their revolution dates already?! Four down, eighteen more to go! #ArabRevolutions

    >Spanish TV TVE just reported troops in #Morocco were mobilised from Sahara to #Rabat & #Casablanca.

    How? The Harkonnen family that run Arrakis have immense support, as long as the spice keeps flowing. And as long as we need the spice to travel, nothing will change there because they do a good job at maintaining the status quo.

    People are criticising the US for fence sitting. It better stay fence sitting IMO - best and bravest thing for it to do.
  • Deleted user 31 January 2011 06:56:49
    Just like the American M1 Tanks 'sitting on the fence' in Cairo?
  • Deleted user 31 January 2011 08:45:44
    Not American if Egypt bought them idiot!
  • Deleted user 31 January 2011 09:28:44
    US gives billions in military aid to Egypt, that aid must come as part of a deal to use large parts of it to buy US military hardware.

    The United States and other Western powers are using our taxes to buy hardware and train soliders in order for dictators to remain in power.

    Well, they are also sitting on the fence. They could turn on the protesters at anytime, but they probably won't.

    If those tanks and the rest of the military decide to back Mubarak, the protesters will only be an inconvenience.

    Just received an amusing email at work. Amusing cause it's totally retarded.

    One of our operations team emailing us complaining they can't get an answer out of anyone in the offices of one of our Egyption suppliers.

    I wonder why.

    Come and get it cumslingers!
