"Will the GOP base continue to be willing to suppress the middle east just for Israel"
The GOP isn't suppressing the Middle East.
And Israel doesn't need the Middle East suppressed.
Arabs in the Middle East did a great job killing each other long before Israel or the GOP existed.
Likewise, Arab leaders suppressed their crowds for centuries before Israel or the GOP existed.
Your question is, in fact, moronic.

It's truly remarkable how you managed to put so much nonsense in just 4 lines.
Good for you!

What a nice, lovely hate-fest we have here.
Walt's little propaganda pieces are like catnip for the crazies.

This is a truly shocking article. Poor people.

"...another few hundred billion..."
"... many hundreds of billions..."
You really should have someone explain to you (preferably an adult) how much is a billion, and how much is a hundred billion.

Actually, it is your comment that is stupid.
America has been attacked, repeatedly, by Islamic terrorism.
Thailand has its own massive problem of Muslim insurgency.
Russians are being attacked by Muslim militants in Chechnya and Dagestan.
I can go on and on...

What an ignorant comment. What are you even talking about? Have you read the articel?
I suggest you also read up about the peace offer that Israeli PM Olmert made to Palestinian president Abbas. And how Abbas didn't even bother to respond.
"The fundamental problem is that the Israelis want peace with the Arabs while the Arabs want peace without the Israelis."
"the country's luck might eventually run out."
I don't think they had too much of that to begin with.
And now that wheat spot price is above 820 (a jump of about 25% since the beginning of the year!) - Egypt's luck has already run out.

A lame propagandistic piece.
As usual with these analyses, they ignore the intervening years, and the peace offers made to Palestinians by Barak in 2000, and by Olmert in 2008/9 - both of which were rejected by the Palestinians.

mmcmillan is a known anti-semite, who constantly spews his hatred all over this site.
You shouldn't get any more upset about him than you would about a barking dog.

Different revolutions have produced different outcomes. The Iranian revolution of 1979, or the Russain revolution of 1917, have only replaced one form of dictatorship with another.
Although Syria is looking more and more like the Balkans in the 90s (soon the be joined by Lebanon), there are major differences between Eastern Europe and the Arab world.
For one, Eastern Europe is mainly secular. The Arabs, on the other hand, are still dominated by Islam.
Also, Arabs have much higher rates of illiteracy, and much higher birth rates.
To that you should add geography: as the population explodes, the fertile land is shrinking due to droughts and salinisation (96% of Egypt, for example, is arid and uninhabited).
You should also note that Arab civil societies are much more backward than most Eastern Europe ever was.
And finally, most Eastern European countries are in fact far from being prosperous.

Judging by your comment, you're the one who needs "a brain upgrade asap and some education"

Can you offer any reasoned argument to counter the points made in the article?
Ignorant trolls like yourself, who lash out at an author just because of his name, are turning every thread into a cesspool.
A good sum up of the events.
The SCAF's latest moves really don't make much sense.
Can't wait for the usual suspects to start blaming everything on US/Israel/CIA/Mossad/The West, or transgalactic wormholes.

An interesting article.
However, taking Brinton's framework, the Iranian revolution of 1979, hasn't ended either. Or, it has moved from stage one to stage four, and ended there.

It may surprise you, but, occasionally, the FP publishes stories about other countries other than Israel.
Morons like yourself, who are obsessed with one single country, and bring it up in every discussion where it does not belong, are a nuisance.

You can clearly see from the comment that there are multiple sources to stories of horrific torture of Africans in Egypt.
HORRIFIC TORTURE that is.
In fact, there was also a huge story on it on CNN, under their "project freedom"
I suggest you actually follow the links and read the stories.
By being obstinate in the face of evidence, you only confirm your obsession (and stupidity).
And, since you brought up the subject, here's how Egyptians treat Africans:
African migrants tortured in Egypt's Sinai desert
Torture in Egypt
African Refugees Trying To Reach Israel Are Trapped And Tortured In Egypt
Egyptian authorities look the other way as Bedouin kidnap refugees
