If it's in #Egypt's interest to participate in air strikes, then be it. My issue is with the lack of transparency and accountability. #Yemen

Do we know how much money has been allocated to participate in air strikes on #Yemen? No? Sure, that sounds democratic to me. #Egypt

Benefits of not having a parliament: You can go to war at will. And now #Egypt is somehow involved in a war in #Yemen. #lovely

@jessradio @RamyYaacoub that's great, but my observation comes from judging couples I know, and it's not been a good track record so far.

@RamyYaacoub it's not a maturity issue, it's the outlook on life and the accumulated experiences. Mind you, my stance is pretty subjective.

@RamyYaacoub cause at these two points there are totally different aspirations and understanding of life.

Instead of building a new capital city, #Egypt should allocate the funds towards decentralization. Stronger local governments. #EEDC2015
