    Well, what it wants and what it gets can well be two different things. Sometimes we have to deal with the fact that things are in the saddle, etc.

    Right now it seems to me that the whole world has to deal with the plain fact that, like it or not, the thing is under the boat.

    The underlying truth about Egypt is that in the global economy, Egyptians have less ability to buy food than Chinese pigs (or at least the farmers who buy grain to feed those pigs).

    If an Islamist government achieves real control in Egypt, that fact is going to be a lot more relevant.
