Ah, we see yet again that the fools who took to the streets in Egypt are going to get no freedoms. Just another sign that they were used and abused because they were too young and dumb to know any better.
The French are throwing a fit and complaining maybe this is a first sign of a UN sanctioning coming down the pipeline at the ruling millitary there or maybe their recent arrest of Mubarak will put all of this quietly on the back burner out of sight.

Mubarak is living in his castle in the coastal town of something something. He is too powerful for the military to do anything, the military is under his control.

He was part of the military council, he was the one who built and shaped that military council with billions of US dollars.

I'm still reluctant to believe the council will arrest Mubarak, rather 3 year sentence of the blogger shows that the regime hasn't changed, only the face has.

You have it backwards, the millitary council is what propped Mubarak up, the same millitary that propped up the leader before Mubarak and the one before him.

too many oppurtunists are trying to make a career out of the revolution.....DO NOT CRITISIZE THE ARMY they are the last line...your idealistic views take a back seat during military rule....they want change yesterday without doing a thing to help other than stir the pot.

Fools is a bit harsh, don't you think?

I knew this kind of thing would happen, but these people wanted real change and reform, and they did the only thing they could and took to the streets.

What does high and mighty you suggest they have done?

While I applaud you bringing this to our attention, you will receive no star or flag from me. While you belittle this poor people for what they tried to do, I applaud their attempt to improve their lot in life.

Here's the bloggers report, quite the active little blogger.....

Maikel Nabil Sanad

He breaks down the whole revolution in Egypt into 3 stages and implicates the millitary involvement during the whole ordeal.


The Egyptian army did not at any point side with the protesters. They supplied live ammunition to police attempting to suppress the demonstrations, were involved in the arrest, detention and even torture of protesters both before and after the departure of Mubarak, and are seeking by various means to suppress or limit the scope of the revolution. Many people are continuing to protest, calling for a civilian council instead of the Supreme Council of the Armed forces.



The report identifies three stages in the revolution:


If any of his story is to be believed, the MSM story of millitary switching sides is all a scam that never happened.
If you look at the history of leadership in Egypt since WWII, the millitary is the true power who sets up dictators and takes them down at will. Assassinations, coups, uprisings, they all appear to be in their toolbox.
