Ya just can't keep a good story out of the news for long.

And ya, that was a vicious ramp there at the end. Always a little frightening to see the herd stampede like that.

I think some are betting on a QE3 announcement soon. Hence, BTFD.

That ramp at the end ruined my day, maybe my weekend-seems like rising oil prices are good for the economy now since oil surged up along with the stock markets in the last half hour.

And what kind of a moron is Drudge? He had the WTI chart from Feb 28 on his "Oil Surges" headline all day today with the price at $98!

Maybe the Enterprise should run an end around, and protect the south end of the Suez Canal? Oh wait that was the original idea. Good thing for nuclear powered ships.

If the US Navy has any intelligence or money left in the bank they may want to put on hold any plans to turn their remaining Kitty Hawk and Forrestal class aircraft carriers into artificial reefs.

I am sure the French will accommodate the USS JFK in Toulon  - all they have to do is tow it out of the harbour and let it swan around the Med with US Marine aviation wings aboard.

Then again - you could just sell it to the French - I am sure they would be interested.................

it might even reduce the deficit.

Australia no longer has any aircraft-carriers - we used to have 2 ex-Brit WW2-vintage carriers, but they're long gone.  Of course, Oz is in a sense one bloody big, unsinkable carrier but we could probably do with some extra reach.  We could probably afford to lease a couple of carrier battle groups from you guys - just to help out, you understand?  But none of those clapped-out rust-buckets like the last TWO ships you sold us! (Google USS Saginaw [LST-1188],USS Fairfax County [LST-1193])

You'd have to throw in the aircraft, of course, but we could probably do without the nuclear weapons.  And the crews, too - that goes without saying.  We might even offer them citizenship (or POLITICAL ASYLUM if S.P. ever becomes POTUS).  I'm sure we could come to a deal.  ;=))

Well they want some of that liberty stuff they fought and died for. Is it any wonder this would be happening?  Those that were attempting to channel this thing they want they wanted it, may have lost control of it now.  I remember a old man, I saw one evening on Al Jazeera and he was in the square and some of the younger "leaders" came there and started barking orders and he told them to go fuck off. Ha, ha, I like that. If they want to coach, tell them to go somewhere else and fuck off.

They didn't fight for liberty. They fought for 'democracy'. At least, that's what the media says.

And even after half a year of protests now, the people in Stuttgart are still angry.

With the military taking over, I suspected this was only going to get worse.  I will reserve judgement until we have more data.

Note the Egypt has a USD peg.

At least they aren't making every NFL negotiation blurb a breaking news story, like CNBC(I have their app).  I really wish CNBC didn't have the best iphone app for tracking stocks real-time.

In the end, they know what the masses want to see.

Please, I want to see about all that crap that people "need" to buy to redo their kitchen so they can Jones their friends and family.

I really "need" that granite countertop and the woodcut "HOME" and other trinkets made by child slave labor in China.

Hungry kids and freedom in the Middle East? Pish!

Continued unrest in Egypt is actually a good thing as it seems the citizenry will not allow anything other than true representative rule.  The bloodshed is terrible, but they are fighting for their freedom - they will not settle for a military administered freedom mirage...

I suspect that the "representative rule" that will eventuate will be the glorious return of the Caliphate, and the end of the separation of church and state.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss......

Expecting a democracy to flourish out of this mess is a trifle naive.

I think its more of a generational shift ala The Fourth Turning.  The old generation of Islamists are struggling to hold power.  It won't work in the end.

That doesn't mean a younger, hipper strong man won't appear there but he probably won't be selling the Islam as gov't stuff.  Probably bread and circuses like dear leader Obama.

Nope, with the availability of the Internet, the Egyptian youth see what other parts of the world have and they want it as well - real freedom.  They do not want Sharia law.

Before the Internet, it was easier for autocratic rulers to repress their people because the proletariat knew no other reality.  Things really are different this time.  That is why we [U.S.] should be supporting these revolutions more directly. 

And I am anything but naive - in response to your weak personal attack...

For the record, it was not a personal attack.

You clearly do not understand Islam in the slightest. (This also is not intended as a personal attack, it is merely an observation).

These rioting Middle Eastern and African populaces have never experienced democracy, or anything remotely like it.

Conceptually, democracy is the antethesis of Islamic thought.  To think that brainwashed, unemployed youth want democracy is probably expecting a bit much from the situation.  If anything, the youth wish for empowerment, and Islam provides that empowerment.

I sincerely hope that I might be wrong, but I don't think so.

Peace out, spdrdr.

Real freedom? There are exhibitions of real freedom on the internet?
