Moved on! Check TheCairoCalls

Remember my self proclaimed brilliant idea of last week? I guess that is exactly what Mubarak needed during his interview with Al-Arabiya yesterday--when he said that Shiites are not loyal to their countries and are instead loyal only to Iran, he really could have used somebody jumping into the set screaming "Cut!! no, no, no Mr. President, you don't label the followers of a major religious sect as traitors to their own countries, it doesn't work this way, whatever happened to Egypt's extreme neutrality?! Now you're giving those Shiites at Baghdad (update: and Kuwait, and Lebanon) something to bitch about other than all the dead bodies holding traffic in the streets...please stick to the script, we're trying to have a nice finale here, ok? Make Up!!..Everybody in position...Action!"
I guess the old man freaked out when he heard that the US is contemplating nuking Iran. Yeah, right! This is exactly what the US needed to contain anti-American sentiment in the middle east!
The poor old man didn't know that Bush went on a press conference earlier this day, and had this to say:
"Gotcha! haha...I am just messin' with ya...those Iranian guys are my dawgs...I have nothing but love for the hommies over there...all this talk about nuking..it is just...between friends..you know...and this talk about how, i don't know his name, how he resembles Adolf Hitler..haha..that is priceless shit..Cheney came up with this..funny guy..really funny..thanks pops...peace out"

Moved on!


It is quite a shame he is the Egyptian President. I feel a little bit better when I see how Bush and Dick behave, but you see, they have think tanks, staff and other constitutional institutions to balance and moderate their actions. Ours I am afraid not. May God have mercy on us!

The way things are in Iraq, he may not be that wrong. Not all Iraqi Shiites are necessarily pro Iranian, but surely alot of them look at Iran as a cousin who can aid them in this time of turmoil. Iran ofcourse wants to consolidate its grip & spread its influence amongst the Iraqis as much as it can which sends shivers down the spine of Gulf countries & sunni muslims as they dread the formation of the Shiite crescent plan.
I dont think Mubarak meant that shiite iraqis felt more iranian than iraqi, but loyality as in alliance.

When I say the Shiite crescent plan , i'm only using the term given by king abdullah of jordan who warned against it. But if there really a shiite plan to spread & what are the consequences if they succeed? loyalties are taking a different turn nowadays.
