I am struck by the number , or the absence of ,women in this demonstration.
I would also like to note that they waited till nightfall to release the military.

One thing that keeps popping into my thoughts is the ancient history of Egypt.

i can only wonder what the Egyptian government has been hiding all these years.. All the sites that they have refused people to dig in 9like the suggested chambers under the sphinx), the ideas that much data is hidden and covered up in order to stop people learning the truth of the matter...

would all this be uncovered for the greater good once this current controller is gone?

I can only hope something majorly good comes out of this for the people of Egypt, the history and future of mankind and a BIG lesson to other governments of the world that we have had enough.

I hope you look at this!

Here is a live link too the protests english.aljazeera.net... Police and gov buildings are burning plus cars and trucks.

The military has showed up but have not done anything yet.
The curfew has past by 45 min so it is getting bad.

The fact the military hasn't really done anything yet is surprising.

This makes me wonder what their actual motives and goals are.

imagine how other authoritarian regimes in the area are reacting to this, considering that most of the Middle East consider Egypt to be their cultural and ideological capital.


The Arabs see themselves as the cultural/religious center. The Iranians are Persians and outside of being a Islamic State there isn't much in the way of connections. The Iraqis are descendants of Sumeria etc...and the Palestinians are looking for their next meal.

So please let's not muddy the waters with hyperbole

Thoughts on Egypt's activities regarding Iran and how they [those activities] may be influencing this [what is happening in Egypt, particularly] in respect to [how] other nations in the Middle East, specifically oh hmm maybe Saudi Arabia [might view this]? I'd say Turkey might be in a similar position here soon.

who needs the internet? Who needs cell phones? What about good old CB radio communications? That was one of the first social networks in the world...

I have to say I am impressed. Seriously.

This little spark of thought that something just isn't right with the governments and elitists is going global. People are becoming so sickened by the removal of their rights as individuals that literally thousands of people are taking to the streets to improve their lives.

As we see the USA in decline economically, and as we see more and more job loss, more home loss and watch our fellow man/woman/child suffer -we have to ask ourselves if we too have had enough.

What politician in our current age actually works for the people? What corporation has your best interests in mind?

I do believe the social unrest will eventually come to the USA – but we usually take a while to get off our collective butts to do anything.

Good for Egypt!

Does this relate to my question? I'm confused. I didn't ask if someone was determined? Sorry my mind maybe be on overload here, so I reworded my question.

Yeah, I am just watching the military being hailed by the protesters around one miltary APC vehicle - the miltary forces seems to be totally passive so far!

Maybe they'll join the people and will refuse their orders?
