But to associate Sargon or his son Manishtushu with the formation of the Egyptian Dynastic state means you have to push back the history of Akkad, and Sumer, almost 1,000yrs with no evidence to support it if only to the contrary for no other reason than to keep Waddell's dream alive. The alternative is to push Akkad back 400yrs and the 1st Dynasty forward by 400yrs because according to Waddell Menes ruled in 2,700BC, which I think is dead in the water no matter how you look at it. If one wishes to associate a connection, if any, between Sargon/Manishtushu on AE history it is more interesting and credible to contemplate the fact the rise of Sargon and Akkad directly coincides/followed by the collapse of the OK. There may or may not be anything to this, but if AE was going through a drought as it was believed during this time and Akkad told the AE to piss off they could have easily brought their demise by cutting off trade.

I know you are looking for connections and explanations for Mesopotamian influence on the formation of Dynastic Egypt, and believe me so am I, but Waddell and Sargon ain't it.
