Yeah, that's one hell of a claim, given that pre-dynastic and proto-dynastic ancient Egypt are, in a way, the "struggle for centuries" Sarika is talking about. History Channel shows like to say the same thing about Egypt just popping up into existence (the "springing up in the desert" phrase sounds familiar, too). It sounds cool, but it's bit of an oversimplification.
