Before you get too riled up-take note that although it is inspiring that the people are standing up for freedom,reports are coming out that the Muslim Brotherhood (a known terrorist organization) has been behind getting people to go out and protest-and the fear is that in the vacuum created if the government should fall that they will sweep in- and that will NOT be good.....

I posted this response on another thread but i felt it fit in with what you are saying..

We just need to make a concerted effort to show them America is behind them. That may be tough with every form of communication down in the country but this topic really hits home for alot of people. Even if they come out the other end of this with an anti-western government, so be it. As long it is what the people voted for.

Every country has a right to choose its own fate and im glad to see Egypt taking the first steps towards that. This may not fair to well with gas prices, but more Americans need to be riding bikes anyway

As long as Egypt comes out the other end of this with a Government the people chose, good for them.

As Samuel Adams stated on foreign policy,"Respect the independence of other nations, while asserting our own"...seems we ignore this today

Exactly-and that is the fear,that the revolution will be "hijacked" so to speak by those who will not have the well-being of the Egyptian people as a priority.
I think it's awesome that the "people" are standing up to tyranny, just worried about what might fill the vacuum if the government falls....

You can't figure out who it wouldn't be good for if a known terrorist organization was running an entire country?....

Apparently there's a french non-profit internet provider who has set up a dial up connection for anyone in Egypt with a landline and the ability to call a french phone number.

Egypt Cuts the Net, Net Fights Back

"In reaction to the Egyptian government crackdown on the Internet, the French non-profit ISP French Data Network set up a dial-up Internet access. This way, anyone in Egypt who has access to a analog phone line and can call France is able to connect to the network using the following number:
