Oh, you're right, Well don't mind me, the alarmist. There were reports of a crackdown coming after dawn and it looks like the sun is up in the square. Also, V reports threats of suicide bombings in the US if Obama doesn't aid the insurrection. Now that's really starting to scare me.

Well he's probably saying that because Egyptians will be pissed at the US for letting a US-funded dictator kill them... so for sure it's gonna stir up extremists in Egypt...

I do not condone bringing children to revolutions, but who are we to judge others who had been repressed for decades?

Adults love their kids, but kids love their parents as well, and would want to tag along to make a stand too. It's their future the adults are fighting for as well, and as much as i would voice out against the harm of violence, it is the kids right too, to protect their parents.

It was meant to be peaceful demostration against the tyrant, for they brought no weapons, and had hope the tyrant will have even a little bit of humanity in him when he sees even children against him, and will give it up.

But no. Instead he let loose his dogs upon his own people, even children to murder, maim and hurt. What else is required to wake fellow Egyptians and humanity up to tyrannical beasts in our midst and the continued support of such animals?

We are quick to condemn Al Queda when they suicide bomb innocents, but here we have a tyrant murdering his own people OPENLY, and yet we do nothing. This is not the first time mankind had remained silent over state murderers and have even wine and fettered them. China, Burma, Thailand, and now Egypt. By our silence lies the tacit accomplicity to the murders of our fellow brothers and sisters by divine creation.....

I am speechless from what I've seen so far of Egypt's revolt, yet compelled to say something. I know little of the whole modern political climate structures in place surrounding all parties involved, but it is clear that the politicians in not only Egypt, but many other countries, don't feel compelled to follow the same rules. Understandable, yet there are laws that man adheres to that know no border or country. Morality is a good example of this, and religion's existence is evidence enough for that!

The internet is more evidence that there are laws that know no border or country, for the news brings to us coverage of such events daily. I say E*gypt so a Chinese reader may see what's going on... Unreal the control they can really have given the desire or perceived gain from such control.

Does news matter? Certainly history matters. And much would-be news can be so easily lost in history, with no consequence to the majority of the world. Mubarak's name is in a bigger history, he sees himself as consequential and evidently honorable. All honor was vanquished when he let his staff go, while assuring a productive last few months.

Oh much can be changed in a few months with the initiative an unsuccessful revolt would bring, but it wouldn't be effective. He fired staff. Evidently ran for his gun. Waiting for a stalemate, breaking the will of his own people for the sake of a MORE honorable transfer of power.

Ludicrous that there should be a more honorable transfer than revolution.

ETA: It dawns on me that the more glorious a revolution written, the greater will it be known by history.

Well maybe they thought that it would be peaceful like all the other days... not to mention... they could have thought that if it turned violent, the cops wouldn't be crazy enough to hurt kids...

And there were reports a few days ago that security forces killed 2 kids in a mosque... aged 4 and 6...

Getting in line for a revolution
Movements for democratisation are springing up in many Arab countries - one by one the queue increases.
Sharmine Narwani



What is interesting about the tsunamis of change cascading through the Middle East this past month is that the "dumb, undeserving-of-democracy" Arab masses have turned out to be magnificently saavy, efficient, focused and determined in flipping over longstanding dictatorships.

And it turns out they are polite too. Arab populations from North Africa, the Levant and the Persian Gulf have now, quite organically it seems, devised a wait-your-turn system for overthrowing the Middle East's iron-fisted leaders.

Opposition groups and ordinary citizens have taken to the streets in Yemen, Jordan, Palestine, Bahrain and Algeria recently to air their grievances and demand change. But they are not going full throttle quite yet. First, they are waiting for their brothers and sisters in Egypt to finish, as Egyptians did when Tunisians were focused on overthrowing the 23-year-old dictatorship of now deposed president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.

Which leader is next is anyone's guess, but I bet that every subsequent uprising will be leaner and smarter than the last. The Arab masses are learning quickly: when the Egyptian security forces sent thugs onto the streets to foment chaos and turn folks against the protesters, Egyptian bloggers and commentators hit the media and social networks to warn about these tactics - quickly pointing out that Ben Ali's presidential guard had attempted the same a few weeks ago.

Let the bought and paid for thugs come it's far to late now The Revolution has taken hold in the region.Mubarak is a dead man mark my words he won't get out alive.I think when the end comes he and his backers will try and destroy the nations infrastructure since they have failed to retake Liberation Square.
