Egypt: An uncertain future

Egypt is on the brink of Civil War today with the country polarised between supporters of the Military's pro-western view of Democracy and those wanting a staunchly Islamic governance.
With monetary reserves almost exhausted, commerce including tourism hit by the troubles, the Country doesn't need any more bad news. With the army already stretched, now would be a bad time for countries to the south to try their luck in abstracting water from the Nile. I wrote about the problem in 2011. See my article here.

If the waters of the Nile dry up, Egypt's current problems will seem insignificant in comparison.
