Until israel is destroyed or moved to America where it seems they would be suited this region will never be peaceful. Research the lavon affair and everything after. They love war and love attacking allies and blaming their neighbours. That’s why zionists and some jews have the stereotype of being deceitful

So Egypt goes scorched earth and makes trade for the world infinitely more annoying because they didn't wanna share a canal and instead just ruined it for everyone. The intelligence of durkadurkas never ceases to amaze me

That would be an interesting life. Having an entire ship to call your home and have friends from different countries that you exclusively hang out with for half a year.

He picture is this. Two armies meet at the river bank, demanding orders and throwing verbal abuse. Death and decay wafts from each side, as tensions rise so high, a butter knife could slice it.... and then, as the two armies slowly begin their march.... "GOAAAAAL!!"; comes from the big fuck off cargo boat right in front of their faces blocking the view.

If it was a few decade back, some country in europe would just come and take the canal to themselves.

Fun Fact: the ships actually made a stamp for the ships. It never became an official postage stamp. But they did have a group design a postage stamp that would represent all the ships.

So Egypt intentionally fucked up this canal just to spite Israel, and in doing so burdened international trade and handicapped several developing countries for eight years. And the comments on this video are about Israel why?
