This is getting out of hand too many people are getting killed. there should be severe action taken and no i don't mean military intervention like whats going on in Libya. Sanctions, promised crimes investigations, breaking down of relationships between countries anything that will stop them from using extreme force.
If you want to stop these protests dont kill them for gods sake.

There are many ways but this is not one of them:

The African Union really needs to stand up and put some resources and media attention into this. They have done a good job so far with adverting a civil war in the Ivory Coast, but all this regime change mania is getting a bit crazy. A lot of this regime change does come down to what the national military thinks as they are the ones with the force to decide either way. In Tunisia and Egypt their military voted yes, in Libya their military has voted no. Just need to wait and see how the other nations go.

With the military made up from a broad section of the population it is a good general gauge for what the democratic will of the people is. Egypt has shown that it is possible to change with a limited amount of violence, but it does take time, courage and unity for the people to stand up to it, if that is what the people really want.
