Seagulls fly near Bass Rock, Scotland, where gannets nest in the Firth of Forth in Dunbar. Every January, Atlantic gannets return to Bass Rock, with 150,000 or more making it the largest single rock gannet colony.

    America and the West has a golden opportunity to be a savior of Democracy and Freedom in the Arab world and that too in the largest Arab Nation, Egypt. Only if they play their card decisively rather than allow military goons to keep their hold and continue the dictatorship for another decade or century; similarly they did some 14 years ago when Algeria's election results were out. The election in Egypt was fair, free and very open to the public and people of the world. America and her allies should come out very strongly in favor of the Egypt election and give stern warning to the military to hand over the power to the elected government and allow them to write their own Constitution and start a new democratic Government. If not, America and the West will create unending bloodshed, killings, destruction and havoc for years to come not only in Egypt but in the entire Arab world. Obama and Hillary has to show their real leadership now.
