Subject: Egyption Gov change+ possiable outcomes

So, if the goverment switchs to something more radical, should we start worrying about 1973 all over again for Isreal? This revolution stuff could spread to Jordan, so Isreal would be surrounded to a degree by extremely radical countries with much improved military capabilities since 1973. Also, I would assume Iran would play a behind the scene's role as well. I assume this is at least a little bit theoritical if the goverments changes. Also, what's the odds that the new goverment is a little more moderate, though decideds to sell some Egyption military equipment to Iran? I'm just intrested to see what could happen.. * Sorry for the poor spelling/grammer.. *

Today's Arabs are not a bunch of isolated villagers and are tired of living under tyrants (or in Jordan's case, stagnant elitism).
I'd see the Turkish model being a very real possibility for a place like Egypt and Syria.  Maybe Tunisia.  Yemen will just stay shit.
Oh, Bashir is facing massive protests as part the wave and the 99% secession vote in South Sudan.  I even got to meet S. Sudan's nat'l water minister at an int'l water conference.  They are looking forward to US troops protecting them.
