How long before the Iraqis rise? it seems the government over there is getting nervous as well.But then they have direct US Government support so if we see a popular uprising expect to see US troops in the streets of Baghdad along with the Iraqi army.

Stock Exchange to remain closed on Thursday.



French President Sarkozy calls for a peaceful transfer of power in #Egypt without delay.



Army Statement "The Army requests protesters to return to their homes so that stability is returned to Egypt"

Basically stop protesting?


"You have the power allow Egypt to return normal life. We are with you. We will continue to secure our country"

You're not with the people, you're backstabbing them in their revolution.


Breaking Al Arabiya: "Internet services are restored in Egypt"

Obama: An orderly transition in Egypt must be peaceful and must begin now (Haaretz)

So NOW you're saying Mubarak must go? Too late.


10:36am Israeli warplanes are overflying the Western sector, Tyre, Nabatiyeh, Iqlim al-Tuffah, Kfarkila, al-Khiam, Jezzine and the Western Bekaa.

Israel violating again the Lebanese airspace... at least Hezbollah didn't fire at them.


9:00am MP Oqab Saqr to VDL (100.5): Miqati came to power through a coup. Any participation in the cabinet would give legitimacy to the coup.



Now that the army seems to have back stabbed the revolution... I think Mubarak won't go till the ``election`` in September....

Update : Lots of security guards, fully armed in Cairo... analysts expects lots of violence today.

Back from #Tahrir, pro-govt crowds forming. No conflict so far but paired w/army statement, a worrying development

From reports... they are about 300 pro-Mubarak protesters... fail.

IMO, the only way to see where this revolution is actually headed is for people to take up arms. It appears that they can't fully rely on the army, my assumption based on their earlier comments. Peaceful protests are leading them nowhere, and some of them have realized that.

If people would go back to their homes, the only thing Mubarak would do is make their lives a lot harder then they were before, and when he's done having his fun, he can retire with all the money and property he stole and rule the country from behind the scenes.

Mubarak concessions 'insufficient': Egypt protesters continue to demand president's immediate ouster

Something isn't right. So basically NOTHING IS CHANGING???

I was listening to BBC last night on short wave, and they were so biased in their opinions, basically calling for mubarak to stay until september. You were right yesterday Vitchilo ... the barbed wire.

How can he stay? I mean, he can hardly go for a walk in "his" own country? And now he even has more time to hurt people. Egyptians will regret letting this go, if they do.

The other though i had last night, is that this only worked because mubarak hesitated. The next country to try, for example Syria, will be met with BRUTAL force. Thats where the bloodbath will come. Already Bashar was heards saying that what is happening in the arab world is a "sickness".

Too much happening too fast, and as someone pointed out last night on BBC, this resembles the 1979 Iranian revolution, which as we know was VERY successfully hijacked by the islam icfundamentalist platform.

Yep... and the problem with the peaceful protests failing... people will think that the extremists were right and the only way to go is to go violent...

So... I would expect car bombs and the like... as soon as mid-late next week.

The state television of Egypt is now using the infiltration of pro-Mubarak supporters on Tahrir square to tell their viewers that they are all PRO MUBARAK on Tahrir square today!

Pesky state propagandists!

Clashes are now breaking out on Tahrir square between the two groups!

Can we please, just for the record state, that the pro mubarak crowd consist of 2 main groups.

1. Undercover police thugs, who are ARMED
2. Petrol company employees who have bee instructed to support mubarak.

It's these same policethugs that have made Egypt unbearable, and apparently have 100% backing by Mubarak. HE is a thug!! This is what Egyptians HAVE to fight, and blood is coming. Unavoidable, Mubarak would rather see his country men dead than look after them as he "swore" to do.

Watching the live feed.

It looks like things are getting ugly after all. This is looking bad for the protesters.

Damn treacherous army. They'd better intervene or it's going to be a massacre.

Mubarak just lost ANY sympathy he may have had, now they want him to stand trial, rightly so!!

How can he EVER be welcome anywhere in the world after this? Is he really stupid enough to think people will fall for the lies? Apparently ... 82 years old and senile.

The Egyptians must be strong, and it appears they are not backing down. Mubarak rested, and is now attacking the tired people. They must fight until they drag him out his palace. In fact no, just burn the palace.
