A New Conflict

Mohamed Morsi, the Islamist dictator of Egypt, might just start a war with Ethiopia to distract from his misrule and the economic collapse over which he is presiding. The pretext Egypt will use for the coming conflict will be Ethiopia diverting some of the Nile's waters. Ethiopia has suffered from persistent drought and famine and would be well within her national rights to manage water resources with more productive use of the Nile. Egypt would use action on this front by Addis Ababa as a casus belli and Morsi realizes the ensuing conflict would be winnable as opposed to the war with Israel that Morsi really in his heart of hearts itches to start but will not at this point because he knows Egypt would lose.
