Egypt: Internet down, police counterterror unit up


www.forbes.com

CAIRO -- Internet service in Egypt was disrupted and the government deployed an elite special operations force in Cairo on Friday, hours before an anticipated new wave of anti-government protests.

Facebook and Twitter have helped drive this week's protests. But by Thursday evening, those sites were disrupted, along with cell phone text messaging and BlackBerry Messenger services. Then the Internet went down.

(visit the link for the full news article)



Sounds to me more like a Wikileaks emerngcy shutdown.

The government calls it anti-government protests, the people call it truth.

If Egypt can do that, Imagine what DHS can do...

is there anywhere on this planet where their Citizens are left alone to go about their daily mundane lives unhindered or living in fear of their own government?

The thing to worry about here is who is the government that is already ready to "be appointed" today? Something really fishy about this! Who backs this "new government"?

I wonder if western money will be pumped in to Egypt to enable Mubarak to make instant improvments to quell the uprising.

Admittedly I know nothing about the current situation, so maybe I'm talking nonsence.

A similar thing has happened in Europe where Greece has been bailed out with money from other Euorpean countries..... the thing is folk like the Germans are furious that their money is being used to make Greeks better off.

The people outside are not that happy, there shouting "down down with mubarak"

Al Karama party leader Amin Eskandar describes Mubarak speech as joke says for 30 years he failed to make a real change

Happened to ireland too..

Now Egypt is something interesting indeed as the USA has supplied Mubarak with weapons and money earlier..
So USA's stance/role in this could be worth thinking about deeper... "Close friends" is what they have named Mubarak and USA's relation.

Many of us know that it ain't nothing new to USA through agents and stuff starting revolutions and rebellions to overthrow democrally-elected-governments in countries through-out their history... All in secret ofc...

Look up Zeitgeist 2 "Addendum" and you'll know what I mean..

That's is why Egypt should be one special case 2 take a deeper look into..

The people are now marching towards the Ministry of Information (Propaganda Ministry)

The same "Propaganda Ministry" - where many of the former Gestapo/SS intelligence officers and Nazi propagandists who moved there after the WW2 were working, and where they constructed and built-up the totalitarian security apparatus of Egypt.

No, he is just trying to buy some time, but, times up. I hear there is also unrest in Yemen, Lebanon and possibly Jordan as well. Ahmadinejad must be grinning from ear to ear and our Madam Secretary of State on TV today looked like she had just had an accident. I think the U.S. may lose 50% of the influence in the middle east in the next 72 hours. This could be it folks. Israel stands alone.

I believe everybody is out in the streets protesting because they aren't busy surfin' the net. Take the Internet away and they'll want to go outside like we did back in the old days without any of this technology. The government had more to gain from allowing them Internet access. But... shhh... don't tell anybody... if the crowd disperses then I have nothing interesting to watch on TV.

Also, I wouldn't be surprised if every country on planet Earth has designed an Internet kill plan in their play books. They have been talking about it for years.

I have a bad feeling all the rioting in the middle east is going to draw national attention, possibly starting WW3.

I despise the Government of Israel, but not the people themselves, so I'm conflicted as to whether this would be a good thing or not. If the government was removed, great, but I fear that could only happen with a full on invasion and destruction of millions of innocent Israelis.

Shutting down communications just prove the governments fear of the people. As said before, I suspect a blood bath

We have no idea where this is .ed, it could herald an era of peace and the end of the War on Terror. This could be the start of the Middle Eastern Renaissance.

We don't know. Any speculation of doom is doom mongering.

lets marvel at how revolutions have changed in the last 20 years. im sitting here watching the event unfold live on t.v, from the other side of the world instead of reading about it 3 days later in the paper.

here is the question.......what country is next?

Greatest comment ever on Twitter a few seconds ago:


Aloha_Analytics‎ RT @moleyhtfc:

The only thing that could have made that Mubarak speech more bizarre was if he came out dressed as Tutankhamun with The Bangles playing.

Twitter - seconds ago




Indeed, Mubarak needs to walk, like an Egyptian.

I would be looking at Algeria and Yemen.

Libya and Syria are two others that should be watched carefully.

The Gulf States are trying to buy their people off. Kuwait's Emir has offered 1000 Dinars (over $3000 dollars) to every citizen and 12 months of free food to everyone. I don't know if it will work though.
