I wonder what these guys are workshopping right now:

CAIRO, December 11 ( - Hundreds of Arab and international activists are expected to flock in Cairo on Saturday, December 13, for a two-day popular conference on U.S. hegemony and the foreign occupation of Iraq and Palestine.

The conference, to be held under the slogan: "Yes to resistance in Palestine and Iraq. No to capitalist globalization and U.S. hegemony", is to witness several workshops and sessions.

Session one: digging a big ol' hole to hide in.

Session 3 (from the original link):

Some observers see this year conference as a chance for Egyptian and Arab activists to acquire the experience of their European counterparts who succeeded in going beyond the stage of mobilizing people and organizing demonstrations, becoming key players inside their societies and being able to pressure their governments.

Becoming dead in your home country.

Arab nationalism intentionally mixing itself up with the economic silliness of Western lefty teenagers -- it's Blair's Law still in action. Your predictive powers are looking better and better, Tim.
