Very concerning about the Israeli troops if they are on the Egyptian side of the border...

the doors are being thrown open that could create the spark we've all been hoping won't come....

very worrisome development indeed..

Hamas are fighting in the Sinai against the Egyptian army.

Oh boy...


RT @shadihamid opposition figure in #Egypt called me, in tears, telling hes hearing army will receive orders to shoot 2 kill tonight



The Israeli and Egyptian troops at the border are working as a TEAM against Hamas

So it seems Mubarak is still in control....

Now we'll see what the reaction from the population/army is.

Hopefully they announce that Mubarak is retiring. But they will probably warn people to obey the curfew or be killed.

From the reports I've seen, YES THEY ARE ARMED.

Those sick bastards are about to bomb protesters. Seriously.


Protesters have practically taken over the center of the capital Cairo despite heavy military presence



Al-Jazeera : Jets and Heli getting lower and lower

Now they also have Helicopters.


RT @RAGreeneCNN: WHOA. Fighter jets fly so low over #Cairo that CNN crew can see into the cockpits, 10 mins before curfew. #Egypt #Jan25

Crowd is shouting back at the jets... that's courage!

If they bomb or gun down these protesters things are going to go global very quickly.

Who will step in first is the big question.

Mubarak should better think twice before giving the order to bomb. If he does that, it is highly probable that the army will intervene and it will result in a full scale civil war between the police/gvt and the army/protesters.

It will get very ugly if the situation gets there.

Haha! the journalist shill on the ground in Cairo for CNN International just said that ALL the reports which are saying that rogue cops & security forces would be involved with any organised looting and the freeing of prisoners to create more chaos - would be pure CONSPIRACY THEORIES and just fantasies, according to this Mubarak shill!

If you're not already watching the live feed, I'll link you to it. The situation is pretty intense. I have already seen a gunship flying over the square, no fighters yet, but you can hear them.

Sick people like Mubarak really manage to annoy the hell out of me. Hope he goes down soon.

I'm not big on info wars for sure but I find this link very interesting. I do smell some big players behind the scenes here and Egyptians should be very cautious here. I would suggest they find a young educated leader from among the common people,no players with questionable ties to any political organizations.
