North Africa Is Burning

And the Obama administration is sitting on the sidelines. The United States has become a spectator as North Africa is wracked by turmoil.

How else to explain the brave Libyans who are rebelling against Qaddafi/Gaddafi/Whacko are begging for... Are you ready for this? The return of George H. W. Bush and a no-fly zone according to Nasr Ali.

While the news media is focused on the battles in Libya, the battle for the soul and future of Egypt continues. It seems Dr. Zahi Hawass has been forced from his position protecting Egypt's rich past. Archaeological sites have been plundered and even damaged, from Giza to Saqqara. Ancient Egypt has survived, but now the vandals are using heavy equipment to do their acts of destruction. If this is not stopped, it will make the looting that happened in Baghdad seem a spilled cup of coffee.
