For now, it seems the Military is keeping a low profile-as long as the protesting doesn't turn violent/destructive.

I think that is a positive step in the right direction.

I sure hope the Coolest heads/potential leaders prevail and not some crazy that leads the county back towards the stone ages.

Just as long as some kind of hard line fundamentalist Islamic regime doesn't take over, historical significance, democracy and civilizations treasures tend to take a back seat when that happens.

This is just so sad..at least they didn't get to King Tutankhamun exhibit ..I'm sure they will stay close to the Egyptian Museum to make sure nothing more happens to keep it secure ...
