We will see if his resignation does any good. But we can only hope for the better of the egyptian people, so their efforts weren't in vain.

We'll see where this leads in the next couple of days.

I am stunned!!! What a surprising result.

The army always was in charge, but clearly they have taken the Egyptian people into consideration. They do serve the nation, that is how it should be. And clearly the voice of the people was heard.

Now the political games can begin in earnest, but i'm sure everyone in Egypt would believe that now they have a chance. 17 days to topple one of the most entrenched dictatorships in the world

Don't get your hopes up. The country is in the control of a military power now (what are the odds that it is a triumvirate?). Freedom will not arrive for some time, yet. If a second wave of revolutions breaks out before a civilian government is established, then the army may break into factions and there could be a real revolution. This is only the first act of a much more involved historical drama.

Algeria or Lybia will be next,within the week or maybe starting now. I do hope the great and brave people of Egypt get their freedom,their civility is quite comendable. If that were to take place here in America it will be much more bloody,any group who goes against our constitutional republic is my immediate enemy,they wont have to worry about the police,they'll have to worry about patriots. So dont even think it.

Switzerland freezes any assets tied to Mubarak
APNews


The Swiss government on Friday froze any assets belonging to former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak or his family in Switzerland.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Lars Knuchel said the order took effect immediately but gave no details on what bank accounts or other assets Mubarak or his family might have in Switzerland.

He spoke as pro-democracy demonstrators in Cairo were jubilantly celebrating the announcement that Mubarak has resigned after nearly three decades of authoritarian rule and handed power over to the military.

"(The government) wants to avoid any risk of misappropriation of state-owned Egyptian assets," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement. It also forbid the sale of any assets, especially real estate holdings.

Swiss Finance Minister Widmer-Schlumpf was asked earlier this week by Swiss national TV station SF whether Mubarak or his family had any money in Switzerland.

"We're in the process of clarifying this and we'll act appropriately," she said, adding that the Foreign Ministry was investigating the issue.

At the end of 2009, Egyptian deposits in Swiss bank accounts totaled 3.6 billion Swiss francs (about $3.5 billion), according to the Swiss National Bank.


Good move by the Swiss government now a majority of Mubarak's holdings have been frozen.He's not gonna get to leave with the people's money.

At an estimated value of $70 billion, that's only 5%. You can be sure he'll have a cosy retirement until death.

I've been thinking though, it all came down to mubarak's order to fire on the protesters, which the army declined. That was the crux of his rule, any rule in fact. The military could have, but they didn't, that was the single motivating factor for his fall. All western governments colluded with, supported and encouraged his reign of terror while it lasted, and even barry would have stood aside if the troops had fired.

The next step, IMHO, is to ensure that mubarak, and others of his ilk, are hounded the same way as Tahrir, to their graves. This has redefined 21st century politics, protests DO count, and unless the government and all the people in it are willing to cause a massacre, they will win. Shades of Ghandi i guess. The next regime will be more violent though, that's the down side.

The Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee has recommended the military buy 13 batteries of the Iron Dome anti-missile system at a cost of $1.4 billion amid repeated warnings by military commanders of the threat of a major missile blitz.

Iron Dome is designed to detect and destroy short-range missiles and rockets like those used by Hezbollah in Lebanon on Israel's northern front and the Palestinian Hamas group in the Gaza Strip in the south.

The defendants, important figures in NATO's second biggest army, deny any conspiracy and say the 'plot' was a war game exercise at a military seminar seven years ago. If found guilty, they could face 15 to 20 years in prison.

Since false-flags are involved... wouldn't surprise me if there's some trace of US-Israel government backing there.... it's their style.

TEHRAN, Iran - An Iranian reformist website says the opposition is defying a government warning and calling on people to stage a rally in solidarity with Tunisian and Egyptian protesters.

The opposition statement also accused the government of double-standards, by voicing support for Egyptian and Tunisian protesters while refusing to issue permission for Iranian political activists to stage a peaceful demonstration.

Iran is "steadily" producing enriched uranium, the head of the UN nuclear monitoring organization said in an interview published The Washington Post Monday.

But the IAEA did not have hard evidence implicating Tehran in nuclear bomb making, he said.

"We are not sure if they are hiding something," Amano noted. "We don't have a smoking gun. We have concerns."
