    Haven't seen anything here on this (maybe I missed it), but this would seem to be very positive news.

    Have to admit, I never saw this coming, but I hope these folks succeed. Would be great news for the world at large, IMO, if they do.

    I thought this was going to be a good news story about Maine.

    I thought it was going to be about how CHFG8R had become a more hopeful person.

    I'm trying :grin:


    Still, nice to see if you ask me. Morsi thought he was just going to roll over that country Ayatollah style and the people are telling him and the MB to F-off!!!

    I really thought the entire region was mentally bankrupt and un-redeemable. But, at least for now, I stand corrected. At least as far as Egypt is concerned, that is.

    I seriously think the military is the best option for sane and reasonable leadership in Egypt at this point.

    Do we want to decide between the Sunnis and the Shiites? There is no "lesser of two evils" there.

    The military is the only entity in Egypt that can stand up to the muslim brotherhood.
