5. It's pure shit-stirring at this point.

 

The referendum is a week away. If they don't like the rules they should have spoken up sooner. In any case, is Obama less president because he only won 50.4% of the popular vote on Nov. 6? Nope. Even the "British-based expert on Egypt" isn't recommending moving the goal posts at this late date, but somebody is clearly trying to either prevent the Dec. 15 referendum from taking place, or if it does, to delegitimize it, and if you want my opinion it's the James Bond contingent of a certain sceptered isle that's itching to snatch the Suez canal and Egyptian gas fields.

Re. Islamic government: whether a gov't is good or bad depends on other factors. Either they tolerate diversity and dissent or they don't. Plenty of Islamic gov'ts have in the past. So that doesn't bother me, and if it actually bothered the 007 crowd they wouldn't have railroaded Mubarak out of his job in the first place.
