This countdown to curfew is way more exciting than any New Year's Eve I've ever had. (Exciting as in interesting, not as in "cool", to be clear)

I am sorry to say but I saw this happening from last year.
It is not going to get better.

I can't even find Wikileaks itself anymore. There's mirrors, but none of the links or anything work. How are they releasing new cables?

ETA: Wedeman is reporting black smoke, buildings on fire in Cairo, live feed showing lots of traffic, army vehicles everywhere.

I lost the al Jazeera feed.

Apparently via state TV Mubarrak announced that the army would help police in enforcing the curfew. Al Jazeera was still live, despite security police being in the building. A police APC was being dumped into the NIle in front of them


There's already casualties, there will be more tonight i'm sure


Baredei is a good choice, but i doubt the west would be happy about him.

In thinking about what may be instigating this, beyond the obvious assertions made so far, which may or may not be tools being used to manipulate people into rioting and rebelling, I'd have to say I betcha Saudi Arabia and all her corporate allies want Egypt out of the picture because Egypt was getting far too "westernized" and sane about Middle Eastern geopolitics. Turkey might just be in the same boat. In other words, the same people who want Iran want this to be happening.

May the people stay as safe as possible....

I'd say that's unlikely, given the fact that all surrounding nations are on pins and needles hoping their own people won't go the way of Tunisia, Saudi Arabia included. It would be a mighty stupid move on their part. None of the governments want this kind of activity nearby inspiring their own people.

Oh, I'm not speaking about overt actions or even necessarily the actions/stances of the leaders that actually face the people. It goes way beyond the country level, but is more entrenched in the bowels of most of these governments, even within the U.S.government, where we see two obvious warring factions playing point-counterpoint.

An excellent read.

Unconfirmed reports Mubarak has left Egypt. I noticed that just after he ws supposed to appear on state tv, the crowds immediately surged that way. The live broadcast was cancelled shortly thereafter.

Trees outside the Cairo museum were apparently on fire, but another report says that firemen had arrived.

History in the making tonight.

You're gonna have to put those dots a little closer for me. How is this good for anyone who's in power in Egypt right now? How is this good for the US's power elite? We've supported the Mubarak regime for decades. Why would any faction in power want to further muddy these particular waters, and with no clear winner after all is done?

I'll try. Factions of the U.S. government still do support the Egyptian government, specifically the more CFR-centric administration now in power. They're probably not very happy about this, and in addition, they want peace there, as did Eqypt. The other faction is the more neocon/Zionist-centric, with their critical interests in the ME and continuing our "wars: there, and who most likely have been viewing the Egyptian government as an impediment to continuing those wars. (Turkey, who might be in some danger here soon.)
