ElBaradei to Mubarak: ‘Leave Today’ via Fox News..
Then all that will concern the world IS, a possible nuclear Egypt.
Mohamed ElBaradei (Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency) (IAEA)
MATTHEWS: Well, let me ask you about the prospects we’re looking at as an American. We’re looking at the map of the world right now and where Egypt sits in the world. It’s so strategically located. It has, of course, the Nile River. It has, of course, the Panama Canal.
AMMAN, Jordan (AP) – The leader of Jordan’s powerful Muslim Brotherhood warned Saturday that unrest in Egypt will spread across the Mideast and Arabs will topple leaders allied with the United States.

..let’s say that the recent Tunisian “revolution” and the current Egypt situation spreads further in the “Arab” or “Islamist” (pick one) street, to say Saudi Arabia and other oil producing Arab states, (Iran ain’t Arab, remember) Could our oil lifeline, cause we can’t drill here be in jeopardy? Will we have to rely on our friends in South America, you know like Hugo?
If things go sideway, you had better bet the farm that all of those dire warnings that have taken place for the past 30-40 or more years, “you’ll kill the donut hole mouse”, “the air will choke everyone”, “nuclear power will radiate everyone”, yada-yada-yada AND there rationale of “It will take 10 to 20 years” ARE and WILL leave our nation in a world of hurt.
Give ‘em hell, Mark!
Received word from towp. He’s alive and doing what we are all doing, (well, all of the SANE) trying to understand what in the HELL is occurring in the world today and how our nation can and will survive all this madness.
It’s probably delightful, but the reason, umm, well, just look at the picture, what it reminds me of, I shall not say. :)
Trying to flesh this out, comparing the what fors and why nots is difficult, but the present administration in its action OR NON-action, is eerily reminiscent to the Carter administrations actions during the 1979 Iranian revolution.
Most all know how well that turned out, don’t we Jimmy?
Those that say that the Muslim Brotherhood is in fact behind this, forget that one Ayman al-Zawahiri CAME from the Muslim Brotherhood. He, if still alive, just happens to be the main spokesperson of one Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden. It also has been said that the Muslim Brotherhood has renounced violence. To this, one can say, SURE!
Those that say that it is the “college students” behind this, forget that the Iranian Islamic Revolution that brought Ayatollah Khomeini to power, were also led by “college students” of the Mahmoud Ahmadinejad variety.
Since Team Obama looks every bit as “qualified” as the Team Carter group, one should and MUST keep this in mind.
Ingredients:Fresh marinara sauce makes all the difference in these robust sandwiches. Look for it near the cheeses and fresh pasta at the supermarket.Ingredients:
- 1 pound spicy or sweet Italian sausages, casings removed
- 1 (23- to 24-ounce) container purchased fresh marinara sauce, divided
- 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (about 1 1/2 ounces)
- 1/3 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley, divided
- 1/3 cup chopped fresh basil, divided
- 4 (5- to 6-inch-long) pieces French baguette, split horizontally
- 1 cup (packed) coarsely grated whole-milk mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 400°F. Mix sausage, 1/2 cup marinara, Parmesan, 2 tablespoons parsley, and 2 tablespoons basil in large bowl. Using wet hands, shape mixture into 8 meatballs. Bring 2 tablespoons parsley, 2 tablespoons basil, remaining marinara, and meatballs to boil in large skillet. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer until meatballs are cooked through, turning often, about 20 minutes.
Place baguette bottoms on baking sheet; spread each with about 2 tablespoons sauce from skillet. Cut meatballs in half in skillet; overlap 4 halves on each baguette bottom. Spoon remaining sauce over meatballs, then sprinkle mozzarella over, dividing equally. Bake until cheese melts, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining parsley and basil and cover with baguette tops.
yield: Makes 4 servings
This picture stolen from the Washington Examiner should be one of the larger of concerns, with the situation in Egypt. Israel, nor the rest of the, world need an islamic Republic of Egypt..
