    If playing wow teaches you anything at all, let that lesson be that you can never satisfy people no matter what you do.
    Actually, Mr. Lennon, I CAN imagine a world with no hatred, religion, war, or violence.
    I can also imagine attacking such a world, because they would never see it coming.

    If only the world could understand this there would be a lot more tolerance.

    Eh, I dont think America should do anything about egypt, let everyone figure it out themselves. Not trying to be a smart-ass but dont generalise, don't look at it as non-Americans wanting America to go in. People are individuals, and there are as many opinions as there are people.

    Why say "your" motives as if every single household in America owns at least two gas stations?

    "and you dont bat and eye lid"

    While in the meantime many in Egypt are already complaining about too much American influence in the situation.

    Once again, there is no satisfying people.

    There's plenty of oil in Egypt...

    North of the Nile Delta and the Western Desert are large crude oil production areas - hell, one of Egypt's main exports is oil.

    America isn't getting involved, but there is oil there! LOGIC BE DAMNED!

    This guy understands it.

    This thread is really ugh because of the immense amount of generalizations it is based on.

    Don't use facts, they unsettle peoples' prejudices, and once that happens the flames start.

    That's a bit hypocritical. I mean, you ask them not to interfere, and then when they don't, you go ahead and question their motives. Of course, if they did go ahead and interfere, you would question their motives.

    What can we learn from this?
    First, no matter what you do, you're doing it wrong.
    And second, just because you did what was asked of you, you're still in the wrong.

    Actually the egyptian "president" has managed to find time in his busy schedule to complain about it, directly or indirectly, multiple times.

    Either way, I agree with Simca in that I'm a bit "ugh" about this thread in general because it's bound to degenerate into a mess sooner or later

    America needs to get involved for reasons much larger than oil. If whoever comes to power is anti-American, then we lose a huge ally in the Middle East. Then Israel is going to be in a terrible position, surrounded by a bunch of countries that don't like them very much, and it may erupt into a much much bigger conflict.

    I'm not saying America has to be involved for everything to work out. Hell, we put Saddam Hussein in power. We were all buddy buddy with Osama bin Laden when the Soviets invaded Afghanistan. Look at all that has happened since then.

    Worst case scenario is that Egypt becomes another Iran, then we are all f'ed.
