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?



My Sincere hope for the world is that Iran is next!! If it were to fall in favour of democracy just think how this would effect Middle East and Global politics. The Middle East problem would start to get fixed. Israel would then be able to relax and co-operate over settlements , (as they should).
Syria would almost certainly fall.
Hamas and Hezbolah would more than likley start to fade as they would have no state sponsorship.
My friends we are in a tipping point. Prey to what ever makes sense to you that we have for once an outcome
that we the people desire.

Lets stick it to the man for once.

Why the negative fear mongering?

The people of the Middle East may finally have real hope and a chance for rebirth.

Dear Government,

You have 2 choices.

1) Deal with my Tweets
2) Deal with my 9mm Water Cannon REDIRECTOR


You decide.

Love,

I understand. My main concern is a snowball efeect that started with Tunisia and ends with the overthrow of several moderate Arab states would be a disaster for U.S. and Israel both. Especailly, if the governments installed were both anti-Israeli and anti-U.S. The fundamental balance of power would be changed. I'm no fan of the Israeli govenrment myself, but if they were attacked well we would probably have no choice but to respond. Once again I am concerned about a snowball effect. The people of the world are learning that the power and wealth of the planet reside in the hands of just a few and they are sick and tired of it.

9mm? Why?

The people of Tunisia and Egypt didn't need or use guns.

Had they done so, things would have turned out differently.

By being unarmed and attacked by the police and security forces, the military chose to protect the unarmed people.

This is a very important lesson.

I guess this explain's Obama's killswitch too, but that means he actually expects Americans to be politically active and protest in mass... I think he overestimates them hahaha. Best wishes to the Egyptian people, at least they are not just sitting around doing nothing,

Ok, good point! Let me rephrase:

I am not an expert in telecom, however I am aware of some groups trying to create a protocol able to link wireless computers/routers together into a "mesh" network.

en.wikipedia.org...

This is still work in progress, however - there could be some beta version from other open source groups.. maybe some IT experts could help here ?

Why would top Egyptian military leaders be at the Pentagon, and then suddenly fly home once the 'crisis' kicked off?

Probably because the leaders of Egypt are being paid to experiment/test out how the citizenry will react to a full communications shutdown. Will they be peaceful? Will they be violent? Will they submit? Will they revolt?

I'm sure the U.S. Government is very interested in the results of the experiment.

Its not fear mongering, Both Baba Vanka and Edgar Cayce talked about WW3 starting in the middle east. He spoke of strife arising near the Davis Straits, and in Libya, and in Egypt, in Ankara, and in Syria; through the straits around those areas above Australia, in the Indian Ocean and the Persian Gulf.

CNN is showing video of the weapons being used against the protesters; they are American made weapons.
