Sorry... somehow i deleted my own discussion. Here it is again
If Egypt falls... what happens to the Suez Canal and the flow of oil... and thus world oil supply lines? Couldn't this have ripple effects…
With the Suez canal shut down and the price of tankers (what is a tanker) up, mr Jhh was very far-sighted.
And you too, Wilma Watts. Fascinating! You all are so smart!
AND the Pyramids are closed!
What a spectacular photo!
Would you be willing to elaborate on that?
(Read something on "GlobalSecurity.com or org" which had one of the generals agreeing to return hostilities but asking, "whose side are we on?"
If you have time/inclination, would much appreciate. And probably others would, too.
You, ledlights and JHH are so ahead of the curve with your thoughts about the Suez Canal and the crisis in the 1950s.
The BBC is doing a mini-series on UK military involvement during that time. I wish the US would do a series about Eisenhower's role as you mention in your post above-
Thanks for this interesting post.
These two headlines tonight:
