Dicey in Egypt

Why not Iran? Egypt has been a repressive regime but now what? A scary situation. Lord. Islamists are out on the streets.

...Meanwhile, Syria/Hezbollah have essentially taken over Lebanon. This administration had just put our ambassador back in there, giving terrorists a green light, even as we may have to pull out our diplomats in Egypt for their own safety.

...Will we have pirates on the Suez? Already high oil prices are going up on the unrest...This:
The violent epicenter of protests in Egypt is an industrial city few outsiders know much about: the seaport town of Suez, which sits astride the Suez Canal as it opens southward into the Red Sea.
Piracy zone widening, even before this.
