As Seen On The News

Hey, greetings future followers. In this first entry I want to write about things I got to know today and what I think about them.
Let's go to Africa. Have you heard that a new country will be born in july or so? It will be called South Sudan, I heard, and apparently it will have plenty of oil. Suspicious.
Also in that same continent, riots and protests continue in Egypt. Basically people want Mubarack to go, and he is like "no way", I think he will have to eventually due to people being that persistent. However, that makes me (and every western citizen concerned about arabs) think...what if he goes away? That dictator is -or was-  ultimately supported by the Western countries. The reason? You know, he keeps the islamists away, and the Suez channel and egypt's oil are involved, too. Do you -do we- want freedom for Egypt after all?

  1. I think freedom in Egypt is up to the Egyptians, and they're working it out right now on their own.

  4. I think America is gonna forget about Egypt soon, newer revolutions are going to take precedence, as well as this new Sudan thing.

  10. islams arent bad people at all so i don't see what you have to be afraid of, i think we're just to docile over here in the western world and we take what ever is given to us without a fight, classic example The TSA!
