It's Iran 1979, all over again.
Mubarak is a rough guy, but he has sat on the lid of the Muslim Brotherhood who want to impose sharia law on the secular/moderate muslims, kill the Christian Copts, and start a war with Israel.
The Muslim Brotherhood is the minority, but is armed, well-funded by Iran, and insane. They will win, if not crushed by the military.
The good-meaning secular students and other people protesting are going to be the first victims of this new regime.
Israel's embassy is evacuated. Tanks are surrounding the embassies of USA and Canada.
I'm in what would be called in the USA "ready reserves" --- and have been told to come back to Israel and be prepared for duty. I saw this coming three weeks ago and started putting things in place.
All of my daughters have reported for duty, including my 17 year old baby.
Almost certainly, this will lead to a regional war, unless Mubarack can smash this down.
It's Obama's time to see if he's really Jimmy Carter's second term. Given his inaction to date, I am sure that will be the case.
I guess this time Israel can haul the American hostages out of the USA embassy by helo, instead of waiting 444 days of captivity like last time.
