It surely paid to pour billions of our tax dollars into that cesspool all these years, didn’t it. Now the Muslim crazies will have better weapons to kill us.

The Islamists are likely to win 60 to 70% of the seats in the new Parliament. If they win at the upper range, they can write the new constitution themselves without a nod to secular parties.

Arab nationalism is spent but the Islamists have just come into their own in the Middle East - probably for a generation, perhaps several more.
This going to be bad.

What the Egyptian revolt means for nuclear proliferation
Even more dangerously, unlike Iraq, Syria, and Libyaall of which have been caught attempting to develop a nuclear weapons optionEgypt has the technological capability to separate weapons-usable plutonium from spent reactor fuel, and it operates a research reactor large enough to make a bombs worth of plutonium each year. Meanwhile, the Muslim Brotherhood, Egypts largest political party clamoring for a say in Cairos future, is on record demanding that Egypt develop nuclear weapons to balance those of Israel.

And such a nuclear domino effect could easily occur in the context of popular revolutions spreading throughout the Middle East
