So... if the Pres was just airlifted out (by chopper)... at the same time the jets began their low flights...?????... I think this is something we need to keep an eye on...

Not only to protect the presidential helicopter but to scare the crowd only

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!


There were reports that the women of the neighborhood were preparing meals for both, protestors and soldiers.
And talking about McDonald's: Watching Al Jazeera I saw their sign in a few videos.


I don't know, how they solve the other problems. But somebody said, people rotated - at least during the night.

Jets burn alot of fuel low flying like that (I noticed they had drop tanks also) so they'd have to go back and re-fuel often.

those are replays only from 1/2 hour ago

If I'm correct about Mubarak taken to secret destination, Suleiman may take a tough stand but I don't think he will want a major bloodbath.....demonstrators would hunt Suleiman down to no end.

Wrong. It's funny that you're pretending to know what I was looking at, though.

Please excuse my ignorance here, but was that the last prayer of the day?

I only ask as if anything is to happen, I imagine that it will be after the last prayer...


thanks.

Yeah, if they are going to attack the crowds, it will be tonight as the crowds will be very weak from lack of food and water and porta potties.

Just like the Chinese did at Titimans square (at night)- poeple at their weakest and running for their lives , tired and burnt -out.

Maybe even wait to attact just a 3 or 4 hours before sunrise-that would work also...they'll really be burnt out then.

Don't underestimate the Egyptian people; they are like Gazans...adaptable to their environment and very resilent.

The BBC has correspondents in Cairo as well, an awful lot of them in fact. I was watching the BBC News channel and the images were live. Helicopters are also present in live coverage at the moment.

The jet fly-bys are a total joke. A desperate attempt by a desperate government to intimidate the people. Instead the people are viewing it as support or with humor.

Seriously? What are they going to do, strafe the people? They think all hell's breaking loose now. If they were to ever do that, they'd learn what hell really is. Pathetic.

Much is now expected of Mohamed ElBaradei from some of the protesters. A BBC Arabic correspondent, Assad el-Sawy, is now reporting that Mr ElBaradei is on his way to Liberation Square, where he is scheduled to address the protesters.

This should be interesting and keep the peoples determined to persevere.

Jets over the City---------- So What ??

Does anyone honestly think that your own airforce would attach it's own people.......... Not in Egypt because if the President authorized that then he would become public enemy Number - WorldWide and other Muslim countries would intervene !!!! period!!

It's just for show and as usual the media are getting their knickers in a twist......

Who Knows, maybe its a sign of solidarity from the Airforce and perhaps the wider military........

Pres H Mubarak is finished and Egypt is entering a new part of it's history........ lets hope they remain favourable to the West !!

Do you really think other Muslim / Arab states would stand by and watch that without acting ???? seriously ??

The Middle East is always and always will be simmering powder keg of potential and an act of suppression by Mubarak (an 82 yr old) would create a serious war in that region.....

The pressure behind the scenes currently will be world leaders telling him to resign....he has no choice...

Ref tieneman square - There is and was no one to stand up against China then .... i couldn't see USA, Japan, South Korea, Russia wanting to get involved...... they were more interested in Globalisation and Cheap clothing for the next decade !!!!

Egypt is different as there is of course the little subject of oil etc etc etc etc..

Evan Hill of Al Jazeera has made his way to Tahrir Square and reported on
audioboo.fm...

It is very interesting, to hear about the situation in the streets. He also tells of a soldier making photos with protestors in arms.
