People in Tahrir square begging Obama to intervene. They are terrified a bloodbath is about to occur.

Which is happening now.

Pro-Mubarak protesters were recruited, given banners, money, buses to get them to the square

So some Egyptians are committing treason against their fellowman for money... sick.

That is sick!!!!! That is a LOT of money in Egypt...something like a month/month and a half salary... equivalent to what... 6000$US in the uS?

I bet you go anywhere in America or any country for that matter, you will find thousands of people willing to go throw rocks at anti-government protesters for 6000$/day.

White house is "sorry" and denounce the violence in Egypt today

You're sorry? Are you kidding?

bencnn : White House issues pale, weak statement on situation in Cairo. Imagine if Tahrir were in Tehran.

Indeed. When this kind of thing was happening in Tehran, all the medias were going crazy and the White House too... now happening in Egypt... weak statements...MSM almost blaming Al-Jazeera...shilling for Mubarak's ``stability regime``

On Al-Jazeera they talked to pro-Mubarak protesters, and asked them why they weren't there for all this time...and now they were... they answered that they were kind of ashamed since Mubarak appeared weak on TV, but when he made his speech that he would die in Egypt, that fired them up... now if that is true... I think most of them are security forces and cops in civilian clothes.

At least Australian news is not totally falling for the propaganda..

They showed off police ID badges they said were wrested from their attackers. Some government workers said their employers ordered them into the streets.

Mustafa el-Fiqqi, a top official from the ruling National Democratic Party, told The Associated Press that businessmen connected to the ruling party were responsible for what happened.

The notion that the state may have co-ordinated violence against protesters, who had kept a peaceful vigil in Tahrir Square for five days, prompted a sharp rebuke from the United States.

"If any of the violence is instigated by the government, it should stop immediately," said White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs.

Well good.

BBC Asked at a news conference if President Obama considers Mr Mubarak a dictator, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs says: "The administration believes that President Mubarak has a chance to show the world exactly who he is by beginning the transition that is so desperately needed by his country."

What a #ing scumbag you are Gibbs!

Egypt Foreign Minister says media needs to focus on the bigger picture that Mubarak has met the demands of the protesters by amending the constitution, which had been asked for5-6 years, and that he said he will leave office. He says that Mubarak will not leave his country in anarchy or chaos.

Museum battle is massive. This is basically a war now. Massive barricades up, burnt trucks etc being held by first line of men

The Egyptian Commission on Human Rights has been meeting to discuss the situation in Cairo. Its president, former UN Secretary-General Boutros Boutros Ghali, has told the BBC that it wants an investigation into the deaths of anti-government protesters. "We are asking that an inquiry must be done and must be clearly done to know what was behind this crisis, what happened."

Never going to happen.

Ynet: Egyptian Health Minister Ahmed Sameh Farid says one person was killed when he fell off a bridge, and 596 have been injured in pitched battles between government supporters and opponents in Cairo's main square.

Only one died and he fell off a bridge? Are you kidding?

A friend with family in Cairo said the family members say they have no hope and that Egypt is lost. I'm worried the momentum is lost

A close adviser to President Hosni Mubarak has told the BBC that the president is determined to "tough it out", and will not give in to demands that he step down immediately.

It seems there is a huge clampdown in the numbers of killed and wounded, and the true chaos of the situation. Perhaps there will be a virtual media blackout as dawn comes to Egypt and the death toll reaches the thousands?

evanchill I am going to be busy filing and uploading, but suffice to say tonight was the Battle of Tahrir, and the protesters won. Cairo is changed.

blakehounshell The protesters in Tahrir appear to believe that if they just hang on until curfew is lifted, they'll get reinforcements. Let's hope so.

I thought the same thing about the crackdowns at dawn, and wondered what could have been happening. It's not alarmist. You would think that with such rapidly evolving events they would get a stand-in for people who need to take a break.

Man, I wish it was a little easier to lay out these posts, like being able to see one main news headline and then all related headlines/tweets right under it or something. There's so much overlapping and retweeted information it's getting hard to keep up with what's a new report and what's just confirmation of earlier reports, especially when it comes to wounded and dead. It's just so much info all at once my eyes start to glaze over and I miss the important "new" news buried in all of the confirming news!

No need to be scared what are you scared of? I aint scared,there is nothing to fear,Obama is fully in control of this situation. These things arent organic even though they appear to be, they're not. They're controlled directed and well orchastrated. Too bad they're gonna fail and the orchestrators will be punished appropiately for not hugging their flown in savior ElBarabei,notice he isnt in the news anymore? He was told to get out while he can,I bet he isnt even in Egypt anymore,oh but he loves Egypt soooo much doesnt he? Well where is he? Why isnt he in the square anymore? I mean he loves Egypt so much but he cant afford to fight for her now can he?

I still have all my documentation of the forces behind this,the international people,the big boys and the little boys,they will pay too. You see, this net thing,its a double edged sword,it cuts both ways..

These brave people have been played by people who dont care for them,shame on them,they will pay for innocent blood,its on their hands now.
