News out of Cairo, Egypt, is being 'edited' by the MSN! The military has been called in and the situation is escalating out of control! The protests have nothing to do with control by the muslims, but about survival!


Man! The world really doesnt need to witness a large scale "crack down" right now whatever the reason. Weres all that talk about self determination and all that? Why doesnt Iran rise up?

Clinton, Hillary, speaking now. The US is concerned, and a call to Egyptian government for restaint, also a call for protestors for restraint, freedom of assembly, allow peaceful protest, against cut from communication, the Egyptian government can't make it go away, Obama still considers Egypt a partner but needs to engage with the people on reforms, needs participation, we want to partner with the people of Egypt (sorry, transcribing it live) people of the middle east are seeking a chance to contribute, leaders need to respond to the needs of the people, see it as not a threat but as a civil society.
Clinton, on CNN live.

Sorry if it seems jumbled, was typing as she was talking.

@monaeltahawy Mona, I suggest that you follow @telecomix. They are actively pursuing getting HAM radio broadcasts from Egypt web-streamed.



Americans cry about the possibility of the net being shut down one day

Egyptians, Tunisians, Algerians, Iranians, Lebanese have had this done to them

Did they cry?

No

They got organised

The Net blockage did not stop them


Egypt, Tunisian, ALgeria, Lebanon, Iran = The Lands of The Brave

naturaly we must pick our offical words carefully here but we have been putting some fule on this fire for years but supporting a better human rights record out of the egyptian leadership. If this thing goes red the wise thing would be to get behind the move. Hopefully we wont get some iranian style crap out of this.

We are in the middle of our own but are still able to use our system. Politics is actually really hot over here right now. Our founders knew that words, debate and the pen were a great way to avoid "uprisings".

Well we have followed strong arms and dictators into power....folks that were not worth a dam. Now maybe the wise thing here would be to support the people. Our western democracies have been mocked enough in the application of our foreign policy over the years. We cant support slaughter.

Rubbish

Tell that to the millions who have lost their homes, to the millions who have lost their jobs or fear loosing their jobs and the constant threat of social services being shut off from the people who right now desperately need that type of assistance for basic survival

The opportunity came and went back in September/October 2008
It came again for a visit during 2009/2010, but no one took the opportunity then either, just more whinging and moaning

Oh I see you want a bloody revolution! Better to lose your home and rise up in the system than have to go out in the street and pull your sons dead body out of the road. Your are hopefull certainly that this issue will end in a French style result you can wollow in the blood like a pig.

It appears that christian and muslims are protesting an oppresive government. Depending on who you watch for the information.
I see waffling on the part of the US government. If they support the government, then so be it. If they support the protestors, then we might see a quicker capitulation of the government.
Either way, this is not going away. The toothpaste is already out of the tube, so to speak. What emerges is anyones guess right now.

I never said I wanted a bloody revolution, those are your words, your views

Your comments are somewhat dulllike interesting all of a sudden
Up till now, one would think you supported the Egyptians demonstrating on the streets
All of a sudden your words seem to be of opposition
On top of that your wording demonstrates you are quite happy for other families to loose their child, their love one in some dirty war, a war which does not bring new freedoms or liberties, or peace or stable standard of living, but does enable more profits, more power, more control for mutli national corporation domination

Rubbish, eh? We'll see! You can't tell me that if the people in the US, in a particular state, were to do what the Egyptian people are doing that the Internet would not be shutdown at the very least in that state and its major cities. If people were suddenly denied their 'benefits', fuel prices suddenly skyrocketed, and food prices did the same, would the people affected in America do the same thing that the Egyptians people are doing?
