    Enjoyed your speech, hope the high school students did also. The fizzing of a Coke bottle is a great analogy – I do enjoy reading your blog. We live in interesting times.

    Thank you Marge. It’s nice to know you’re reading. I was pleased to get your e-mail and see you’d enjoyed Egypt on the eve of the uprising.

    Many questions from Greek student who is trying to right his Thesis in International law.

    The inspiration came from an article in International Law Observer which was negotiating the denial of UN organs to involve in the Egypt Uprising ( http://internationallawobserver.eu/2011/02/06/egypts-protests-human-rights-abuses-and-international-law/ ). I studied the post-war political history of egypt and i have proved that the Mubarak regime chose to sign the Human Rights Treaties aiming at realistic purposes. The Next step was to prove the legality of a possible U.N. intervention against the Mubarak regime before and during the uprising. That was not very difficult. The difficult part is this: What International law could do to help Egypt. The upcoming elections need supervisors? Would it be a constitution amendment and will the traditional military regime give place to a more pluralistic government?

    Thanks A Lot.
