something really interesting is happening in egypt. these kind of things are usually put down pretty swiftly, but the egyptian people have managed to muster enough momentum to make it self sustaining. i think the military knows it has to dance...
'do you think the egyptians will manage it?
i hope so...'
'i did think last week it would peter out, but today, i think they'll do
it. But hat its replaced by is another matter'
'at the end of the day it should be they will of the people and if
the people choose extremism so be it...'
'i don't think they will. it is a fox news scare story...'
'who knows...depends how pissed off they are with america
extremism is infectious.'
'but they are quite a calm bunch of revolutionaries...'
'fingers crossed then...'
'i suppose 'middle egypt' might vote in an islamic theocracy...
they need help from al jazzera.'
'i guess. You never know what forces are working in the background'
'we'll see how it turns out i guess...'
'you're optimistic...I'm pessimistic'
'that makes a change!!!
i'm usually mr. pessimist.'
'Its just that there are undemocratic forces at work everywhere and we
are being hood winked to think that we live in a free world. Its
bullshit. There has to be control when there are too many people. Even
the govt is tied to forces that we are not supposed to know about. We
think we get democracy...but the fact is the politians are jsut very
good at covering up the fact that they dont have choices.'
'corporate interests...of course...now i'm a pessimist too...
all for a bank balance......'
'sorry! its all to do with oil and arnaments...well that what i think anyway...
and i am actually beginning to wonder whether its the somali pirates who
are at the top of the tree...'
'oil, armaments, & pharmacuteculs'
'yep in a nutshell'
