    When I play Chess, I try to plan 3-5 plays ahead. Couldn't the population of Egypt see what was being prepared for them after the Arab Spring? The Brotherhood has been in place for years, so of course they come out as the dominant force after the elections.

    They have stolen any dream Egyptians may have of a real Democracy. Now the people are back in the streets. Shoudn't this have been seen months ago?

    But I predict the cycles will run again. It may take a few more decaded, but the country will swing again, hopefully to freedom this time.

    Your republican friends were all calling for Mubarak's head. Johnny Mc came just short of calling for military intervention. Obama handled the situation in the only way he could. The American people gave him high marks for that. Had W been in office, we probably would now have troops on the ground in one of these countries. You cannot change history.

    Well, Texas can but they are hoping to leave the US anyway.

    I think the problem with Mohamed Morsi in Egypt is that US-schooled and US-backed Morsi failed to do as hoped by US and its allies and they have crossed his implant wires to make me appear totally insane. I cannot otherwise understand how a democratically elected Morsi would suddenly allege his decisions are supreme and not to be challenged.
