Open Thread: Egypt and Weekend Edition

For general discussion and debate about all things relating to politics, the economy, and sports.

Possible talking point: Egypt.

How serious is the situation in Egypt? Will this result in a full-scale revolution that topples Mubarak? If so, will this become religious leading to some kind of new Islamic government such as in Iran? Or will Mubarak get control of the situation?

Maybe more importantly, might this spread throughout the impoverished Middle East really threatening international security while sending oil prices to all-time highs and crushing the economic recovery? Or will this be contained in Egypt?
