Egypt

Former UN nuclear chief and Nobel peace prize winner Mohamed ElBaradei is viewed by many as the strongest opposition candidate for this year's presidential elections. He returned to Egypt on Thursday and called for Mubarak to stand down - only to be placed under house arrest.

IMO: Problems even if Mohamed ElBaradei somehow gets made president. He will really have to keep a grip on things in a sensible way to prevent the place lapsing into another Pakistan - or perhaps slightly less bad, another Iran. Alright, to hell with the West as they have already had it too easy, but a firm grip and a secular government is needed.
