Egypt latest: ElBaradei in Cairo to address protesters



We all know that egypt is still in revolt but what will happen next.
Is egypt about to attack the crowds?
it is not normal that figther planes fly that low over the crowd.
why are they doing this?
any sugestions? are they about to attack?

news.blogs.cnn.com

Fighter planes flew low over the crowds in Cairo's Tahrir Square on Sunday, 10 minutes before the state-imposed curfew. The planes flew low enough that CNN personnel on the ground could see inside the cockpit. Some in the crowd began holding prayers despite the planes.

now they have fired warning shots


Egyptian troops fired warning shots into the air in Cairo's Tahrir Square


is it about to get out of control?

I cant see the troops attacking the people, the people have been clever and befriended the troops.
It will be hard to turn the guns onto your friends?

Now we are wondering why fighter jets are flying over low level, what is the meaning behind this?

sorry, but this is not a "crowd". This are the people, it's their home and county. They have no rights and no food and now they will take back what they own - given by god or what ever. We are the idiots here, because we are also just slaves by the industry. We just have to consume and work until we die. I don't call that freedom.

Well, the mood is not as good as yesterday and those jets were a clear warning.
But I also read a tweet saying, that the women in the neighborhood are preparing meals for the protesters and the soldiers.

Right now Dan Nolan from Al Jazeera twitters, a soldier pulled a woman and her child on a tank and put the Egyptian flag on it.

Let's hope, the army stands by the people.

I don't think this necessarily means they are about to attack...
I DO think that it was a warning to the people. It's much easier for a pilot to stay detached from the issues than it is for a soldier on the ground. The recent events are showing that the troops on the ground are siding with the protesters more and more (at least they are backing down slowly). It would seem to be the next logical step for the government to go airborne.

It is possible, but I would say almost certainly not. There would be absolute pandemonium if that happened.

I assume that they are there as a deterrent, but people are understandably nervous as no-one knows for certain what the fighters are there for. There are also military helicopters using surveillance equipment on the crowd.

Using "Fast air" to fly low over large crowds of people is a tactic used by the military to warn/scare (basically it is a show of force)
I Don't think it is likely that they will bomb any crowds lol

Helicopter was the private presidential helicopter........I think Mubarak just left the country 10 mins ago

Seems the helicopters and jets are gone now. Witnesses said, the military told them "We will not stand in your way."

After someone said, Mubarak must be crazy if he wants to bomb them, the people started to chant "Mubarak has lost his mind!"

We are talking about the possibility of aircraft being used to attack crowds (which is not likely to happen) not infantry
soldiers recklessly firing live ammo into large groups of people.There is a big difference between the two.

That could have been beloved tyrant fleeing.

What will happen next will be the ascension of the Muslim Brotherhood. Then lots of Jihading.

Or perhaps as so many around here fantasize, perhaps a new age of Egyptian enlightenment is just around the next corner.

I wonder how many of them people have to go to the bathroom.

Do they have porta potties on site?

And, are food trucks allowed to come and sell breakfast burittos and such?

So many questions are in my mind.

Thanks, maybe I'll do that.

I just got back from McDonald's and had a nice breakfast and am now again watching "live stream' on "Al Jazzerra"

and those peple have got to be hungry as hell.

We sure got it good here in the USA.

I don't think this will last much longer as people can only go so long before the mind and body go putttt!
