Meanwhile, in Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood is positioning itself to lead an 'Islamic Democracy'. For anyone who does not see the problem with that, I pity you.
If thats true the life of normal Egyptians will get 10 times worse, there are no governments run by Islamic Extremists that offer civil rights and economic opportunities for their people. I have a feeling people are going to long for the days of Mubarak.
This letter is in response to the articles covering the civil unrest

encounter during this crisis. To the people of Libya, the trumpet of
freedom beckons you to rise in protest and ensure your voice to preserve
your sacred heritage, promote your children's future and obtain the
blessings of liberty we all cherish. Moammar Gadhafi, let the people
