Under tremendous pressure from within Egypt and without, President Hosni Mubarak has resigned his office and handed over control to the military. I know the Israelis are not too keen on this move. With unrest in Jordan and Iraq, we are seeing what looks like a cascade of governments toppling. We’re just going to have to see what takes shape in the coming months in Egypt. As preppers we need to stay focused on what’s important, water shelter, fire, food and security. With the Spring and Summer approaching, given the amount of tourism and research in the region, I am sure the military will want to get the people back home and out of the streets so that travelers have some semblance of safety. Whether we’ll see the democracy that President Obama says they are embracing or something worse than Mr. Mubarak remains to be seen.
