    OMG! Egypt will be a Mulsim Sahria law nation and will spread in the middle east and doom Israel!

    Pathetic media.

    And it is well reflected on here.

    Actually, I thought it was just the opposite. What channel you watching, uscitizen? I been keeping CNN on most of the day...they are orgasming over the Revolution Without A Shot Fired.

    Since I'm not planning a trip to Egypt like you guys, and the rest of America, I'm ignoring all news about Egypt.

    I actually watched some Fox earlier today just to get their feel on the Egypt thing.
    They were interviewing one of their people in Telavive (sp?) I thought funny, and some ex CIA guy that now runs a rent a mercernary security outfit.
    I got the gloom and doom from them. And from threads on here.

    I am mostly ignoring it as well at least till we see how it shakes out.
    But I am curious about peoples reactions and I keep hearing this so goes Egypt so goes the ME thing.
    Also rumors of the head Saudi dying was news earlier.
    On Fox and friends of course ;)

    Why is telling the truth fearmongering? Are you telling me that if there is bad news going on the media is supposed to tell us it's all roses and lollipops?

    The truth is that Egypt had regime change without wrecking the country first. That such a thing is possible. The truth is there is jubilation in the Egyptian streets tonight, the national museum isn't being looted. The truth is people took to the streets alongside tanks, people were neither running away from the tanks nor firing RPGs at the them.

    Speculation about motives and agendas isn't the truth, is it? Speculation is assumption. And when speculation tends toward hyperbole it becomes fear-mongering.

    I was watching MSNBC before going to work. They were interviewing people in the square and someone from Parliment. All they kept talking about was Freedom, Modernizing and a love for America. I heard nothing about religion. They weren't even "mad" at Mubarak. And they were happy about the military.

    So far so good.
