    That's what got 'em into the jam they're in Gerald. It's high time we start cleaning up our own mess(es) and extend others the same courtesy.

    (even though the blame for the mess in Egypt is not entirely our governments fault, still, they should clean up the mess. I didn't see Egypt or the UN helping Los Angeles during the rodney King riots. 53 people were killed or murdered. Dozens and dozens of stores looted. Some 28 buildings were set on fire by the angry protestors who vented their rage on their neighbors more than the governmental abuses they were upset about. Yeah, we should definitely tend to our own mess and allow others the same courtesy.

    The "they" in "still, they should clean up the mess" is the Egyptians. (not the Americans)

    He he...and if I'm gonna call us "Americans", for the sake of grammar, I'd have to call the Egyptians "Africans". Wouldn't I ?
