As usual, this is so terific. I believe that your perception of the relationship between Mubarak and the US has been only based on the fear of the So-called Moslem Brotherhood, which by the way has minimal support among the overwhelming majority especially after the recently broadcasted show about their leader Hassan El Banna.

Who lost Red China, Belgium Congo, Chile, Nicaragua, Panama, Vietnam, etc. etc. etc? Hey USA that’s not the question the world is asking. What we want to know (during the 100th anniversary of the late President Debt) is who lost the US to an ultra-right wing world financial meddling evangelical orthodoxy, beloved of bignoisylawnmowers and the numerous others of his ilk.

To claim that Carter lost Iran is ludicrous. It's a grossly oversimplified and deluded reading of history.

The Shah's unwillingness to deal with Khomeini lost Iran.
Egypt is not yet lost.

I am not too hopeful. The best that can be hoped for is that the army will take over - the Burma, Pakistan solutions. The worst and only slightly less likely scenario, is that an ultra-religious party will take over - see Iran, Iraq. The very worst solution will be a Taliban type group taking control who will inherit a chaotic situation and then we can kiss the museums goodbye and see women in burkas and kicked out of schools. Hosni would seem to want go out in the style of Hitler, with the ruins of the State around him. Not encouraging.
