    I will start, the US has a real bad habit of sticking their noses in other countries business, we also have a bad habit of backing the wrong regime, only to have to remove them at a later date..Yes I know its a global concern, but it seems like when the US gets involved, US takes the biggest casualty hits...I am concerned about the loss of life and harm, but this is one fight where we need to stand down...my .02

    considering that the tear-gas canisters have "made in USA" on them, I'd say we've already stuck our noses in it.

    I would have Biden maintain commo with the Egyptian interior secy, and urge non-violent resolution. Short of that, I'm not sure there's much else we should do. Its not like they're being invaded by a foreign nation. This is civil strife, and unless we haven't learned a damn thing in the past 9 years in Iraq....

    well so do the Grumann F-18's parked on the air force runways...But Muhbarek has been in power for 30 yrs, and been propped up by US funding for all these years...

    They sure do.

    This is really sad. I have a co-worker from Cairo, who's wife is finishing her last year of med school there right now. I hope there is a peaceful ending to this soon.

    Whether its China, Iran, or now Egypt, these protests remind me how fortunate we are in America, and that what we have came at a very great price as well. Being 230 years from our Revolution, I think we sometimes take our freedom for granted.

    One of my former asst managers recently retired in Israel, and I always fear for his safety any time violence breaks out in the Middle East..it is very difficult for us westerners to understand about a region we only know about from our news sources and talking heads along with preconceived notions about what they really want in their country

    One of our specialists at TBC was an Egyptian. Educated there & quite talented. His comment about Mubarrak when he came into power, nothing will change, the graft just goes into a different account.

    IMO, worth nothing, is we need to provide armament to maintain a balance of power between countries & factions, no cash for graft & keep a lot of nosy do-gooders wandering around over there bothering them. On their nickel of course . How much cash have we provided Palestine & what good has it done?

    Thank you UB!

    These protestors are demanding more democracy and less government corruption. I say, "let the situation run its coarse without our interference"!

    We've spent over a trillion dollars on Iraq and thousands of American soldiers' lives and those people still don't know if they want to be a Democracy. Same for A'stan!

    No more Forign Aide to any country and lets take care of ourselves for now.
