Morsi says "all options open" on Ethiopia Nile dam

CAIRO - Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi said on Monday he would keep "all options" open to defend Egypt's water supply from being affected by a giant new dam Ethiopia is building on the Nile but he added that Cairo did not want war.

"Egypt's water security cannot be violated at all," he said in a televised speech to Islamist supporters. "As president of the state, I confirm to you that all options are open.".

He later added: "We are not calling for war, but we will never permit our water security ... to be threatened."

Using emotive language to underline the importance of the Nile to Egypt, he quoted a popular song about the river and said: "If it diminishes by one drop then our blood is the alternative."

We're probably going to see a lot more of that sort of thing here in a not so distant future I'm afraid.

I think I would have to support Egypt on this one. I mean the Nile is part of Egypt's History and Culture and if another Country does something to the life blood of Egypt then Egypt has a right to defend it.

The majority of the water in the Nile originates in Ethiopia. Of course it's been important for them as well even though Ethiopia hasn't existed as a country as long as Egypt. It's not easy and any treaty that would allocate a certain amount of water for every nation the Nile is running through would have to be rewritten as population and agricultural practices change.

Much like The US uses most of the Colorado river and leaves the muddy leftovers for the Mexicans.

Ethiopia has 48 combat aircraft
