How far will the unrest spread?

  1. not sure if we should rejoice the disturbances in the ME or become duly concerned.

    I'm sure that Israel is on high alert and wouldn't be surprised if something triggers them off.

  2. As they weary at the slowness of the change they seem to want, no doubt the Military will need to find a scapegoat. Someone to focus eveyone's energy upon. Who it will be remains to be seen.

  3. I think we need to be a little weary too but a fragmented ME may not be all bad

  4. The Egyptian military is in charge, their Constitution is null and void, and the MB waits in the wings for somebody to drop the ball. If I was part of the mainstream media, I don't think I'd be cheering so loudly.

  5. Actually, I wouldn't even say the Egyptian military is in charge since their military is almost if not entirely funded by the US government.

  6. It's too soon to tell how Egypt will fare. I hope someone other than the moslem brotherhood stand up and leads.

  7. Soapster,

    In addition, the Egyptian military is largely staffed with Mubarak's men.

    Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood Plans to Set up Party
    Tuesday, 15 Feb 2011

    Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood says it will set up a political party once restrictions are lifted that prevented it and other groups from doing so under President Hosni Mubarak.

    The Islamist group said in a statement it had declared its desire to a set up a party many years ago but was stopped by the political parties law, one of many curbs on political activity during Mubarak's rule.


    The above contradicts previous reports.

  9. I think those cartoons pretty much nail it, AOW. I think this is something that should alarm us, not cheer us.

  10. I've been largely ignoring all the commentary. You are right that only time will tell.

  11. Protests spreading but who's behind them? BBC reported this morning:

    "Outsiders" infiltrated last night's clashes in Libya, says senior Libyan Official
