No shit. The moment those towlies started their "Arab Spring" you knew to cross it off the list. I've crossed every country infested by the mo-HAM-mad (piss be upon him) followers off of my list.

Since they have a lot of our technology, this is going to get interesting.

Why would anyone go there for a vacation in the first place?

Up to a few years ago I had a hankering to see the Pyramids. That will never happen now.

I realize Egypt is a total shithole but we could have done it by going with a cruise company and using the boat as our mobile hotel.

IF I was going to visit any other country, I would choose China, see the future....

the rest of the world is a shithole and this country is bent on following them down there....

Arab Spring was not good for the Free World.

Lets see what the Egyptian Military does. If it gets too chaotic they may fix it. and things may turn out ok. No matter how our media tried to spin it, Arab Spring was not good for Western societies.

If Bahrain and Kuwait, the Emirates, Saudi Arabia etc slide, life will get pretty interesting.

I really wanted to go see them, too, but I will go to no country infested with mudslimes as long as I am not in the military and heavily armed.

I'll send you some pictures if you'd like. Been there...not worth the trip. Sphinx was smaller than I thought it would be. Valley of the Kings and Queens was pretty cool. Pyramids smelled like piss.

Wife wanted to go someday, guess that's done and over.
