Suddenly, people are concerned about the Suez Canal and the very real prospect of the Muslim Brotherhood taking over one of the largest countries in the Middle East. This is starting to look alot like 1979; hopefully our response will be more effective.

UPDATE: a Fox News guest pointed out that no one is burning the American flag, which is usually the hallmark of demonstrations in the Middle East. It may be an indication that it may break our way.

I was listening to Newshour on the Beeb on Wednesday, and one of their reporters said the most interesting thing he noted during the protests that there weren't a lot of hijab-ed women running around, which indicated to him that the muslim brotherhood supporters were staying away for the most part. I don't think we have to worry too much about a muslim brotherhood government. What we have to worry about is the army ditching Mubarak only to take over the reins themselves.
