    Most board games have you move clockwise. Interesting that this one asks you to move the other way, which results in your moving forward only if you land on “Military Coup”.

    Arabic. Moves the other direction, like reading.

    Square one is not a bad place from which to start again, IF a better foundation is laid by those commencing the restart.
    However, considering the lack of civility, compromise, and respect within our own democracy, the new democracies have reason to wonder if we represent an example they should be following.
    Respectfully,

    @ansonia, et.al.,
    Americans are not familiar with just how firmly based upon, and deeply fill with, HATRED, Mohammedism really is. They call their religion, “Islam” – which translates, “SLAVERY” – and a very barbaric form of SLAVERY it is, throughout its fundamental tenets.


    The Western world has developed governmental systems, all the way up to our own American Democratic Republic, which systems are totally despised by both the fanatic Mohammedan laity and the more than fanatic clergy. Indeed, the various “Islamic Brotherhoods” – of which the immediate Past President of Egypt was a Member – have gone on record, many times, insisting their objective was to "totally destroy Western ideas, such as ‘democracy’, and the idea that people had ‘rights’ – other than the ‘right’ to live and die as the ruler willed.


    Even in the United States, the Mohammedan population – especially the ones here on student visas, and supposedly “learning” about things not commonly taught in the Middle East – seek to have their barbarian “sharia law” instituted, and enforced, here. For them, THEIR religion takes precedence over ANY and EVERY other form of belief-system in the world. And, the American principle – as guaranteed in our First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States – of FREEDOM OF, as well as FREEDOM FROM, “religion(s)” – is among the first things American they seek to destroy.


    We, in the Western world, may never learn to actually behave according to the words: “Love your neighbor as you love yourself”. But, those words DO establish a goal for the future that Western peoples can at least TRY to exemplify. And, in the end, we have come a long way towards at least a basic TOLERANCE towards divisions, diversities, and differences.


    Mohammedism, however, has no word for even “tolerance” in its vocabulary. And, the sooner Americans realize this, the fewer will be our casualties in the coming times.

    @ansonia

    Ansonia, are you trying to state that only liberals are biased, prejudged and bigoted ?
    Are you saying that conservatives are “demi-gods” ??
    If so, then I see the problem…its one with no solution…at least not this year, nor decade…

    Looking at many of the commentators on this page as an example, Respectful Troll is correct. There is a lack of civility on both sides at times. As to Buckley’s quote, I’ll agree there are Libs who are quite fascist in their views. There are also those on the Right who fall into the same bucket. Or are you telling me that there is no one on the Right who you consider to be unreasonable and ill mannered?

    @Adrian Snare

    Yeah, I’ve read some of your comments on here Mr. Snare. You’re not one to criticize him on this issue.

    Egypt’s economy is in the pits and needs strong rule. Morisi only made the situation worse.

    It’s not that liberals are astonished to hear that there are other views. But we are a bit astonished that there are so many who are willing to completely disregard all facts and all past experience when choosing which views to believe. It still shocks me when people say, apparently with a straight face, that government can’t create jobs (it can) and that climate change is not caused by human activitiy (it’s been proven beyond doubt to anyone capable of rational thought).

    2001-2010, nine of these years are the hottest ever recorded since 1850 when record keeping began on a large scale.
    .
    No finger pointing, this is just numbers and is not disputable.
    .
    Why this makes folks aggressively belligerent is puzzling, the numbers are not attacking their religion, the number just show the temperatures.

    @ARodney

    if the jobs are making war and war material then yes government can create “jobs” Heck even Krugman admitted such with the alien invasion example.
    And you are not keeping up with the reading, it is becoming more and more proven that human activity has a negliable effect on world climate. as it has also been show that the world was as much as 6-8 degrees C warmer then today pre human influence.
    So who ignores facts again. OH YEAH, the ones who want to boss other people around and take their money.

    @Stipple

    One local TV station here in the frozen north has a “weather watcher network” which reports precip and temps, the range is quite wide over a realtvily small area.
    So just why do you regard this as a gold standard for determing climate change?

    I still suggest what is needed is a Pinochet and his Chicago Boys to take Egypt over for about ten-fifteen years.
