    Wolf, my answer is: Who Cares??? Someone in some other country 8,000 miles away fired some generals... So What! What the hell does that got to do with us??? We are the only country on earth that can be manipulated into bankruptcy by events that are none of our damn business. A handful of radicals raise a little hell somewhere, and what do we do? Send half the Army, the Navy, and the Air Force to occupy the territory for 10 years when a couple of local "beat cops" would have been sufficient. And then, while that ocupation is going on, we send the rest of our armed forces to occupy some other "hot spot" on another false alarm. Meanwhile, the Chinese and the Arabs continue to let us run-up a tab, and we wonder why we get the short end of the stick. Its because we are stupid and easlily manipulated. Someone could pay three drunks on a street corner in Beirut to start shouting anti-Israel slogans and we respond by deploying troops. Small wonder we are broke!

    Wolf; Good job on reporting the less than the truth political adds. Keep it up, I was starting to think that most of the media was just another arm of the White House.

    Sounds pretty shaky to me. It still seems like it is a day to day struggle for absolute political control in Egypt. Keep your eye on the Sinai.
