    The Egyptians had enough.[/p]

    Egypt actually cut of the internet, they disconnected their entire country.

    I have a few Egyptian friends and they have been complaining for years about the president as being a corrupt vile man.
    I for one support them in their protest

    Not much else I can say, just check out the source

    I htink it will depend on who the army will support

    The president made clear that the government is fired but he has no intention of stepping down

    kinda strange tht this was posted now cuz its all over the news... thanks

    the issue comes (IMO) if the new government/prez will be the same as the current one. If that is the case, then like tunisia (i feel their new body is not right) we will just have a calming personality coming who infact will just continue as prev done

    Sadly this kind of reflects our problem in a much subtle way. It just that those people are fighting against the same issue for years. It just now they are willing to cause as much mayhem as possible to get their point across.

    Honestly, if our military goes there to 'calm' the crisis then we are about as clueless as not seeing the next attack in the US!

    If the Muslim brotherhood takes over in the chaos that follows we'll be a good step closer to the whole middle east blowing up. It'd be war if Egypt turns into another Iran. At least the current government opposes Islamic radicals. I really hope the government crushes the protesters and Egypt takes the slow road to reform.

    That's not going to happen, right now there's a HUGE wrestling with corruption and anger. So nothing going to 'calm' down as far as I know.

    Slow road to reform isn't going to happen when the government is corrupt in the first place. [​IMG]

    I seriously want to discuss this on a mature level, no random BS or stupid recurring naivity!

    On-Topic: Sadly this protect is going to last for a good while. I remember somewhere around 2005 or 2006 that this incident has happen before.

    I would say "Fight for country and destroy darkness of arrogant government."

    But of course, they would go against me and try to kill me.

    Yea I know, but I didnt hear about this until shit hit the fan in Egypt which was thursday and I didnt have time earlier :/

    Also, as for now NO ONE should take control, the army (if they arent supporting the current president) since its all the people of Egypt hqving a revolution and one party taking control in this chaos will only ensue in more chaos.

    Also I have received word that Anon decided to get mixed up in this


    I saw the Obama speech last night and to be honest it was crap, even France and Brittain had better speeches about this

    You do realise the current spate of unrest in these parts of the Arab world are pro-democracy ant-corruption, not pro Islamist? The government is trying to blame a right wing Islamist party to get the rest of the world to look over their heavy handed treatment of their own people. Think about it, this man has been in power for non stop 30 years, he knows how to make his dictatorship not look like one to the outside world. Except I think it's more "he aint bothering us, leave him too it".

    i "heard" that the president resigned.

    also, not much can be said for basically everything around here

    Tunisia, Lebanon ( [​IMG] ) - the domino effect.

    The man refuses to step down and is just screwing everyone around

    I reckon if Egypt succeeds into removing the current "president" from power even more countries will follow, something I can only hope for
