I am not sure if people understand the potential implications of the protests though.

It's not exactly rocket science. Most of the people who don't understand the implications are the same ones who couldn't pick out Egypt on a map or up until last Friday thought Egypt was still ran by Pharaohs.

It isn't? :-?

I think that's more people than you think.

You think most Americans understand Egypt's relationship with the US and Israel?

No I didn't say that. I said they just don't care. I think just as many people don't really care about the relationship between the US and Israel itself. But now that the protests have been on the news for going on a week, there are likely hundreds of thousands of internet experts on our diplomatic relations with Egypt and Israel, and the importance of the Suez Canal.

I don't think half the people acting like it in this thread understand Egypt's relationship with the US and Israel.
