#3 I haven't been able to find a copy of this proposed Lewis map of a divided Egypt - the ones floating around conspiratorial anti-neocon sites are all variants on breaking up Southwest Asia, not North Africa. It's all "how do we break out Kurdistan and an autonomous Alawi state" and how to chop up the Iranian empire - what the hell is Quashqaistan?

#6 Drat, uncovered Operation Biden Time. Still, don't see what is wrong with newc's map...

#7 Used to be, when I was in college, forty-plus years ago, the anthro people, the poli sci people, and the history people, all bitched about how yurps drew lines on maps without regard to the people, or The Peoples, through whom the lines went.
Now, not so much.
