Egyptian government on last legs, says ElBaradei

Nobel peace prize winner and dissident returns to Cairo from Vienna, as thousands demonstrate against the regime of Hosni Mubarak
The Egyptian dissident Mohamed ElBaradei warned President Hosni Mubarak today that his regime is on its last legs, as tens of thousands of people prepared to take to the streets for a fourth day of anti-government protests.

The Nobel peace prize winner's comments to the Guardian represented his strongest intervention against the country's authoritarian govern...

Not even the Iranian regime, at the height of the challenge on the streets to its legitimacy, took such a step. It slowed down the Net to hinder communications and to try to monitor activists, but it never carried out a shutdown.

Well, I hope that the people are successful.

I wonder though, now that things have calmed down for the night IF there will be night raids? Seems their strength was their numbers, and I hope the police don't take the opportunity to remove some of the threat.

Yes, I hope this too. But you know, we can expect everything when dictatorial governments are the "game in town"

But one thing is clear to me, The world is waking up.

He very well could be the next leader of Egypt.

We will find out soon who is now in charge.

It should be apparent to everyone why Obama wanted a kill-switch - not to protect us from internet invasion but to protect himself and his successors from civic rebellion. I imagine that it extended to mobile coverage as well. At some point protesters are going to be in the middle of D.C. without any internet or mobile coverage to organize and communicate.

I never bite this kill switch security think. To me is obvious they are trying to control the net.

Yeah, but seems is the operative word there. If the people want him then good, I'm sure they know about him than I do and he seems to be the best of the current options I've heard floated around.

However, if that's the case looking at his resume I don't know how that speaks to the people "waking up". While he may not the total US puppet, he does seem to be quite the globalist (or runs in those circles) which doesn't really suggest that they are realizing the global interests at play.

Their problems are very localized, they are angry over the economy and corruption and are looking for a solution to those problems.

Agreed. But look how killing communications in Egypt has resulted. It didn't stop anything, and it actually probably benefited the people. If they had been able to use the internet and text the "organizers" would have been found out or the next target. So just as the people were more or less in the dark and planned on route, the government was totally out of the loop as well and had to spread out to protect their interests, which are now burning.

unnamed senior us adviser, according to cnn, calls the speech highly disappointing and it is clear that Mubarak THINKS he can ride this out.


Obama will be out in five minutes to discuss the situation.

I think we will force him out by cutting aid.

Obama will probably threaten or imply this in his speech.

I agree, it sounds to me that US has finally taken a position.

This guy really is something, lol, the whole government is bad except of course for me.
How delusional can you get? He claims he's been watching the situation, so has he not heard the "Out with Mubarak" and the "Gamal tell your father we hate him" or the popular " We hate Mubarak". I guess I can see how he's confused

Not what anyone hoped
. Just that Mubarak needs to make good on his promises, he didn't say a word about in favor or against him dismissing the government and appointing a new one, and he told him to turn on cell phones, internet, facebook, twitter. So far nada, I keep checking Egyptian websites.

On Cnn an anonymous source within the white house said Mubarak's speech was a disappointment and Mubarak THINKS he can ride this out. The WH doesn't seem to think so, but that didn't come directly from Obama, which is disappointing. He seemed to play both sides, like he wants to appear to not know who will be successful and wants to leave his options open no matter what happens.
