Truth for a fair recap of the men who have earned the support of civilized governments. I remain surprised that Mobarek was either too stupid or too ill to flee the country.
Built just 4500 years ago today,
Has Egypt or Egyptians actually done anything since then? Penicillin? Light? Railroads?
It will be interesting to see it play out. Many people worry that the world's most populous countries will have an enormous impact on the near future of the world. I'm not sure why. Egypt looks like a classic precursor of what will happen to such countries when the money runs out. The 'government' can no longer afford to subsidize food and energy and the people get restless. When the people get restless they take it out on their leaders and then on the countries around them.
Sucks to be their neighbors. However you can read up on their really big scawy militawies. When I was last in Egypt they told me that they would oblige us by submerging one of their deadly submarines for a naval exercise if we gave them at least a year to get ready.
