    That kind of leaves it wide open, eh? ;) However, I'll start with the Middle East.....Things aren't looking up...:(

    Turkey expels Israeli ambassador over Gaza flotilla row

    (And I read recently that Egypt's new powers are considering relations with Israel and are seeking to shut down tunnels...)

    :confused:

    Errrhhhh............yeah????

    What were you expecting? That they break off relations and install the local version of two or three Lincoln tunnels?

    Egypt's new powers, BTW, are Egypt's old powers currently still. The Military.

    Good on them. There is a stark difference between those in China and here (USA). If the ones in China pulled the chicanery that Wall St. and the Banks did here, their heads would literally roll and would be lucky if they got prison terms instead of death.

    I read today that the US is going to veto Palestine's State request at the UN.....Seems to me the Middle East ain't gonna be settled for some time....(Yep, I know that it hasn't for some time, too...) And then there's this:

    Egypt protesters storm Israel Embassy in Cairo, raising tensions

    Musharraf threw his lot in with America to the tune of $1,500, 000, 000/year of "financial aid", much to the chagrin of many Pakistanis, who are Pashtun. It doesn't sit well with Pakistanis to have their government tell them that they have to kill their kinsmen.

    That whole area with Pakistan and Afghanistan have been divided because of the clans, so maybe they should all be their own countries...(y)
