In the Memory of 1952 Coup and Golden Jubilee of Suez Canal Abduction

This is the picture of the man who started the ruining process of the modern Egypt, back 54 years ago. He lead to the complete failure of the democratic process, his era witnessed 3 military defeats, waste of Egypt's beauty, silencing and torture of people and most of all, he led the away for the dictators who followed him and are ruling us till this very moment. However, he charmed the 20 million Egyptians. Gamal Abdel Nasser was a great leader and so was Hitler.

hmm interesting? I agree about the democratic process and stuff but I wonder why you consider the nationalizing the Suez Canal a negative thing?

I will not say that it was going back to Egypt after 10 years or so. However, Britain returned Macau to China after the end of the lease period, Panama is now controlling its canal as well. In addition that it was administered by a private company it will as expropriated by Nasser. This also led to the 1956 war. And its is not nationalizing, its expropriating. Nationalizing is when the owners are partly reimbursed for their shares. Expropriation is the complete take over. Now the Mubarak regime is doing the complete opposite but you know in what manner, given what's happening to Omar Affandi and other government owned companies.
