    What’s going on in Egypt?

    Uprising, because Mubarak's the head of a US supported dictatorship that's lasted for 30 years and the oppressed Egyptian people have reached breaking point and can’t put up with it anymore. The similar uprising in Tunisia last week showed them how it’s done.

    What caused all this mess?

    Outdated interfering US foreign policy. The US are happy to support dictatorships when the dictator does their bidding. It doesn’t matter how much the people of the particular country in question have to suffer as long as they’re not US Americans. ( they got rid of Saddam because he stopped oppressing his own people and began to ignore what the US wanted of him.)

    Publicly, the US authoritarian regime are saying that there should be no bloodshed, whilst at the same time behind the scenes Hillary Clinton is probably ordering Mubarak to hang on to power no matter what using helicopters and fighter jets to buzz the Egyptian people. We know that this is how it works as shown by recent Wikileaks revelations. As the US has now officially advised it's citizens to get out of Egypt, then my guess is that the US are cutting Mubarak off to make his own way and the bombing and shooting of the terrorists ( to us, the Egyptian citizens ) starts the day after or the day after that.

    60 Years Of American Arms Exports To The Muslim World

    Take your pick from Egypt and Tunisia and any other puppet state that they control through their puppet government foreign policy support or military aid. Take your pick from any of these; Afghanistan, Algeria, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Bhutan, British Indian Ocean Territories, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Maldives, Morocco, Nepal, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, Yemen.

    If Egypt can free itself from western hands, then they all can. As long as the people of these countries can stay clear of US influence and Islamic fundamentalism then they’ll be safe. If fundamentalism takes hold, then it’s possibly a Christian / Moslem Fundamentalist world war sometime in the future.

    think about it. hmmmm, he's been in power 30 years and nobody cared. why now? the economy, maybe? could be.....he's always been a dictator, but why now?

    1. egypt has huge unemployment and is having a harder time meeting their social obligations, (ie free stuff for the people).

    2. the us of a, (egypts main benefactor), has a huge debt and is printing money with both hands to cover our debt which makes american dollars buy less, (inflation).

    3. combine one and two, AND, food prices in egypt go up. SOOOO the egyptians demand a change at the top.

    don't be fooled sweetie. this revolution in egypt has nothing to do with religion or politics. it has to do with economics. 1st world nations demand cheap food and a certain standard of living and when they don't get it, welllll, they throw rocks, or better yet, shoot guns.

    it's what the liberal agenda is all about, creating chaos! that's why the us of a has to lower our debt and quit printing money. we should get rid of the ethanol program too. that would lower food prices. BUT NO, it's all about green energy even though ethanol burns more energy to produce than it saves. HMMMMMM, i smell a big old rat!

    say, don't hate the messenger hon. i'm just telling you what's up. don't be a hero! get back in the fox hole. NOW! (coming soon to your home town.)
