""Liberty and freedom are precious and must be fought for and many generations of Americans have answered the call and heard the toll of the Liberty Bell. Now is such a time and ask not for "whom does the bell toll". For those on the greens at Lexington and Concord heard the call and saw the approaching danger in the forms of "Brown Bess" and "Redcoat". And when the smoke had cleared the deaf ear of the oppressor was pierced by "the shot heard round the world".""

The Chaos in Egypt Continues

IT SEEMS THAT THE OLD ORDER IN EGYPT COULD GIVE WAY TO SOME, AS YET UNDETERMINED FORCE.  WHAT THAT NEW ORDER WILL BE IS ANY ONE'S GUESS.  IT SEEMS TO BE CLEAR THAT THE TENS OF THOUSANDS IN THE STREET REPRESENT THE VOICES OF CHANGE.  IF THE CURRENT GOVERNMENT FALLS, THE UNORGANIZED RIOTERS WILL NOT BE THE ONES TO ESTABLISH A NEW GOVERNMENT.  MY GREATEST FEAR IS THAT THIS SECULAR STATE MAY FALL INTO THE HANDS OF SOME ORGANIZED GROUP SUCH AS THE MUSLIN BROTHERHOOD.  AS THE WORLD WATCHES THE GROWING DISCONTENT ONE CAN ONLY HOPE THAT THE ULTIMATE OUTCOME WILL BE A GOVERNMENT THAT CONTINUES TO ALLY WITH THE UNITED STATES AND THE FORCES THAT OPPOSE RADICAL ISLAM. ONE MUST NOTE THAT EGYPT IF ONE OF THE FEW COUNTRIES IN THE MIDDLE EAST THAT RECOGNIZES THE STATE OF ISRAEL.  WE HAVE LITTLE CONTROL ON THE CASCADING EVENTS SWEEPING ACROSS THAT NATION AND IF CONTROL OF THAT STATE FALLS INTO UNFRIENDLY HAND THE RESULT COULD LEAD TO ALL WAR IN THE REGION.  ONE ALSO MUST NOT FORGET THAT IS IS EGYPT THAT CONTROLS THE VITAL SUEZ CANAL.  A WATERWAY THAT IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY FOR MOST COUNTRIES IN THAT PART OF THE WORLD.
