    How I wish to hear some good news from Egypt. The last thing I heard was kind of disturbing when it's supposed to be a good one. I'm talking about the sexual assault happened to lara logan. Over the weekend, CBS news released a statement that their press reporter, Lara Logan, had been assaulted while reporting in Egypt. Here is the proof: Nir Rosen resigns after remarks about CBS reporter Lara Logan Rosen, a fellow reporter, has been forced to resign his position at NYU over comments he made regarding Logan. Nir Rosen has since apologized to Lara Logan, but the damage from his remarks seems to be done.

    The MB are well placed to take a substantial role - if not full control - in an Egyptian government. It's very likely that, should they win control, Egypt will end up like Iran. That is not good for the Egyptian people, and it is not good for the rest of the world.

    Egypt is a very westernized country, many of its people travel abroad, and certainly many have strong family connections to England. They do not want an 'Islamic' state.... but I fear that is what they will end up with. The next 'free' election they have may well be the only 'free' election they ever have.

    No doubt truthmatters will be along shortly to accuse me of fear mongering and 'hating' democracy.

    It's been the concern of anyone with the ability to think. Even when an internationally renowned expert (Professor Ferguson, Harvard, Oxford and the LSE) spoke about this scenario, the rabid lefties attacked him as a 'far right' extremist. Morons. Seems to me the 'fear mongering' is a standard tactic for the left. Perhaps they do it so often that they don't even know they're doing it? :lol:
