Friday of Rage

It looks like at least another 100 dead today in Cairo and Alexandria. At this point I have little to say but will have more next week.

Another stern missive from Washington and the parties will sit down for peace.

Heck, it just worked with the US's letter to Israel about building more settlements. And if it can work there, it sure can work in Egypt.

For those of your readers not familiar with State units, WWNN is the "Wink Wink Nod Nod" unit whose stern demarches and declarations are known and feared world wide.

Usually the "shock, horror, and outrage" are inversely proportional to the perpetrator's acceptance of US foreign policy.
