    Gamal Mubarak, the son of Egypt's president Hosni Mubarak, announced back in 2006 that Egypt is working to have a nuclear plant in operation with in 10 years.

    Egypt is a member of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty signed in 1968, and ratified in 1981

    So even if the Muslim Brotherhood becomes the dominate player in the Egyptian government.

    There is no legal recourse to prevent them from going nuclear. :cool:

    That Genie has been out of the bottle for decades.

    Eventually even Haiti will have the bomb.

    Shouldn't their concern be on helping the economy and providing jobs and better services to the Egyptian people?

    Building nuclear plants would provide employment opportunities for Egyptian citizens and stimulate the economy. :cool:

    You have to possess certain skills to work at a nuclear power plant, North Korea and Iran have nuclear power plants and they have very high unemployment rates. If the first this new government is going to do is build nukes the situation for the Egyptians will be 10 times worse than it was under Mubarak.

    The Muslim Brotherhood are not the "Moderates" the International Press is making them out to be. The Media is always biased and wrong. Bin Laden and his #2 Zawahiri were both members of the Muslim Brotherhood. Mubarak kept them under wraps and i think many are mistaking that for them being "Moderates." They will now become very powerful. The U.S. is making a huge mistake intervening and creating this new Egyptian Government which will include the Muslim Brotherhood. This will just lead to more disastrous Blow Back for us. We will regret it someday.

    The Muslim Brotherhood is very popular among Egyptian citizens.

    They have done a lot of humanitarian work for the people.

    And will be a part of any newly formed Egyptian government. :cool:

    No. they have *some* support in Egypt. But Egyptians are generally secular and generally don't want a bunch of fundies telling them what to do. Egypt also likes its tourists and doesn't want to drive normal people away like the fundie countries. As to your assertion about nukes, according to the Federation of American Scientists,
