    Egyptian people are pussies. If you really want to topple the regime : do it.

    The iranian people made a revolution in 1979 : the US backed govt is gone.

    The french did the same in 1789 against the monarchy…

    Etc…

    What are you expecting : DumBush to invade the country ?

    it is most likely that those who are cheering for Egypt’s destruction are homeless Palestenians who are jealous because we have a better and stable country. Do not fall into their games

    anon, a democrat, Carter, handed Iran to the islamofacists. Reagan became busy with the communists in the 80s. Clinton, another democrat, gutted the military and the intelligence services, not even allowing them to communicate with each other. GWB has removed the taliban from Afghanistan and saddam from Iraq and now that we have the iraniacs surrounded we’re stockpiling everything needed to take out in a couple of hours their government, military and their nuclear program. This is how Iran will be handed back to the Iranians.

    The shift to ethanol has put pressure on growing food for people, the environmental nutjobs are responsible for this. This is why food prices have skyrocketed. democrats and liberals are all about the people, in a pig’s eye they are.

    Can’t do everything for everybody all of the time.

    “The shift to ethanol has put pressure on growing food for people, the environmental nutjobs are responsible for this. ”

    I think the peole responsible are those who thought they could make a killing on maize futures. There are much better ways of producing biofuels than growing maize, but maize could give a quick profit.

    Don Cox, yep, aren’t the Brazilians doing it with sugar? If Brazil has any extra sugar cane we could buy it and maybe it’s time to make a deal with Cuba. I forget where I saw it on the television yesterday, food costs are up 10% for the US but, in some developing countries it’s 80%. Or maybe OPEC could lower the price. What am I thinking?

    Maize will grow further North than sugar cane.

    One promising crop for biofuels is single-cell algae. I think the whole technology has a long way to go.

    As for food prices, I think some bad harvests in several countries are more to blame than biofuels, but what makes the effects of a bad harvest worse is financial speculation.

    Don, John,

    I believe you’re both right. Corn for fuel was hatched as an idea by people looking to increase the value of their corn, but subsequently incubated by people who bizarrely believe that biofuels are better in terms of global warming than fossil fuels.

    In any event, if you think this price shock is bad, consider what happens in a few decades when our depleted topsoil (depleted because the corn stalks which are used to regenerate it have been converted into fuel) blows away, and the agricultural output of the “Breadbasket of the World” plummets.

    IMHO, nuclear is the only way out.
