The massive and widespread violence today marks a dangerous new phase in Egypt's upheaval and Oregon Congressman Greg Walden says there are many possible impacts to us here in the U.S. Witnesses say hundreds of people have been injured in the violence that includes gunfire; Molotov cocktails and fistfights. They also say journalists and those who appear to be Americans are being targeted. The unrest in Egypt has many possible impacts; everything from widespread violence to higher oil prices, to a greater threat to neighboring Israel. Congressman Greg Walden is in Bend today and KBND News asked him about the overall instability of that region: “You've touched on the other piece of this; that's what happens to Israel. Obviously America will stand shoulder to shoulder to protect Israel, and so the question is does this spill over into additional problems or threats to Israel. That raises a whole other set of issues. So stability in the Middle East is a really important foreign policy goal and need for us and the world, frankly." Walden says oil prices can be impacted in the short term because Egypt controls the Suez Canal and if extremists take over the country they may want to disrupt the worlds oil supply long term.
