Egypt is Baaaaaaack (And Oprah Gets The Flu)

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Looks like the Egyptian stock market ain't opening up on Sunday after all:

In other news, congratulations to all those who got suckered in by the last 10 minutes short squeeze.

And in absolutely hypocritical and hilarious news (cause they are so true), following today's re-escalation in Egyptian violence, Oprah, who was previously scheduled to have a show in Cairo's Tahrir Square, has promptly pulled out, citing "the flu."

Oprah Winfrey is not coming to Egypt’s Tahrir Square, despite an announcement from Egypt’s Ministry of Tourism saying the celebrity had accepted an invitation “without hesitation.”

According to a post on Oprah’s Twitter account Friday evening, the star has been in bed with the flu since the Oscars earlier this week. “Hearing reports that I’m taking show to Cairo. NOT TRUE. Have no plans to do so,” she tweeted.

The Ministry of Tourism invited Oprah and other celebrities to Tahrir Square as part of a campaign to bring tourists back to Egypt following the January 25 Revolution, which managed to oust Egypt’s 30-year dictator in just eighteen days.

The prospect of Oprah’s appearance in Tahrir Square has been met with mixed reactions by Egyptians. Some argue that any publicity is good publicity, and believe Oprah’s appearance will help draw tourists back to Egypt. Others are disdainful of the idea, asking, “Where was Oprah during the revolution?”

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.

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!

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.

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 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.

It's a stitched time-lapse panorama.

Look at the cop just to the left of the legs; it's the same cop talking on his cell phone - leaning right - then leaning left.

That...or it's alternate dimensions crossing over.

"If there is hope...it lies in the proles. If they could become conscious of their own strength...they would have no need to conspire. History does not matter to them."

"Men are infinitely malleable. Or perhaps you’ve returned to your old idea that the proletarians will arise. Put it out of your mind. They are helpless animals. Humanity is the body."

You know what ... let France, Italy, Germany and G.B. figure out what to do in N.A. and the M.E. Oh yeah, they can pay for it too.

Somebody explain to me why we have 73 military installations Europe 65 years after the end of WWII and 30 years after the end of the cold war.

Exactly.  Somebody should also explain why Tea Party madam Michele Bachmann can't cut a measly $100 billion from the budget for infrastructure building in Afghanistan?

Instead she cuts from Veterans Affairs and seniors already living on Social Security. That's great....screw veterans and tie granny and gramps ss, no not to core cpi but to superlative cpi. WTF? 

Cut some military spending. But, no they won't touch 1¢ of Gates' budget.

Another reason more Americans are watching Aljazeera. AP News, CNN, and other Western MSM are too busy tracking down Balloon Boy or who won a date with the bachelor.
