    I fear the United States is heading for the same scenario.
    But not until after America suffers as the Egyptians did.
    Our gummit,full of corruption, must be replaced with individual States coming together to form a truly “independent’ people.
    But alas, lo’ and behold, the tide approached. America will swell into a failed, shattered and unfortunately……violent hive of dissident pockets.
    yes, we will survive. Egypt is a harbinger of a new world order. So much has yet to manifest. Only God knows where all this will ultimately stop.
