The Muslim Brotherhood saying that there is no international element to this is irrelevant. The Brotherhood IS a group with international reach. The issue isn't the students on the street. They will be used and dismissed after wards, just as they are after all of these 20th century revolutions. They supply the initial energy and manpower to trigger events, when that is done, the "grown ups" step in. Men with articulated goals and visions, with organization, will use those 'students' and assert themselves at the opportune moment. There's no "generalized anxiety" in anything I'm saying. My concerns are incredibly specific and easily supported. The fact is, you are more interested in trying to appear clever and are more invested in generating a response rather than a thoughtful contribution to a discussion. And another member has an entirely different agenda that undermines ANY kind of honest or interesting dialog. I suggest you put aside your arrogance and replace it with some intellectual curiosity and integrity and actually learn about these subjects. It'd be far more interesting History will prove you wrong. Though it's interesting how you are speaking about riots and protests associated with the Muslim brotherhood and Islamists at university as an FU to zealots because they aren't identifying with the Iranians. No one with any understanding of evens thinks there's complete unity with all of these different factions in the region. However, there are mutual goals and mutual enemies. I suggest you learn your history, replacing factual knowledge and context simply with your prejudices and insecurity makes it impossible to understand and analyze events. This isn't a subject that can be easily condensed into a paragraph or a page. Much of the history has been revised so it takes a considerable amount of time and effort to study the region. Additional point- the events in Egypt are NOT isolated. The narrow magnifying glass of the media might make it seem that way, but that's not the case. If you're viewing Egypt as an isolated event, you are missing half of the story.
