Egypt

Egypt is going to abandon everything on the River Nile downstream of Cairo and for about 20 miles west of the river and everything east of the river to the Red Sea. i don't know if you want to expand into this territory?--Smoggy80 17:56, October 7, 2010 (UTC)

Is it plausible for either thing to happen? Mitro 18:45, October 7, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, abandoning downstream of Cairo has already been established, but abandoning any of the rest doesn't make much sense.Oerwinde 22:06, October 7, 2010 (UTC)

Egypt is moving more towards settling the new Eonile rather than the old Nile, plus most of the land to the east of the river Nile (level with Cairo north)is uninhabitited highland desert so there would be no real need to keep it under Egyptian control, plus Suez is now under LON control so there is no reason for Egypt to keep control of the area. They would be more focused to the west, I was thinking of a northern boarder using the El Maadey-Bear Gendally-El Katamia highway to the town of Bir Thanadah?--Smoggy80 15:41, October 8, 2010 (UTC)

Ok, that makes sense. They wouldn't abandon the Nile though, I always saw the redirection into the Eonile as a redirection of Lake Nasser, while the Aswan High Dam still releases water down the Nile. That way there is still a water supply down the Nile, but the Eonile gets the silt deposits since its not blocked by the dam. The Nile would still be a fertile area due to modern irrigation, crop rotation, etc, and until a few flood deposits have built up some decent soil along the Eonile, the Nile would still be their main food supply.Oerwinde 17:39, October 8, 2010 (UTC)

Like I said everything downstream of Cairo, that still leaves the land along the Nile between the Aswan Dam and the nuked Cairo under Egyptian control and being cultivated.--Smoggy80 18:08, October 8, 2010 (UTC)

Coptic Renaissance

The speakers of Coptic current are really low, so Coptic won't be the most spoken language in Kemet (but ethnic Copts will still be the majority). BUT, I'd like to propose a renaissance of the Coptic-language and Coptic-language poetry and novels, too. The same thing happened to Hebrew-it was mostly a liturgical language and a group of people got to together in the late 19th century and worked to essentially build a modern Hebrew which became the official language of Israel in '48. So the surviving Coptic speakers would be become very valuable and liturgical-Coptic (which is still the main liturgical language of the Church) would probably be the base of such workings. They might have to borrow some words from Arabic and Hebrew, too. Mr.Xeight 23:44, October 7, 2010 (UTC)

Coptic being an official language is similar to say, Sierra Leone, where Krio is spoken by 97% of the population, but English is the official language. With government and schools required to teach it and require access to services in the language it would naturally result in an increase in use.Oerwinde 00:04, October 8, 2010 (UTC)
