From 1517 to 1914, Egypt, a country now in abject confusion, was run by the Ottoman Empire (aka the Turks). Would it not be better if Turkey took it over again as part of the neo-Turkish Empire?
This would have the advantage that the rulers would be fellow Muslims, also from the Middle East, and not nasty white British imperialists.
Because at present it looks as if the Arab Spring in Egypt is going nowhere fast. And although Turkey is smaller than Egypt population-wise (Turkey 55 million, Egypt 80 million), it is somewhat better organised (and knows how to exploit tourism for a profit). Turkey is also a member of NATO, so that although the Yanks will still buy Egypt all its weapons, it would be fellow NATO power Turkey that would control their use.
I'm full of good ideas, if only people would listen...
