Can't believe such an autistic is in power. The guy is totally deaf and stubborn. Huge anger in Tahrir, they call on march towards presidential palace. Alexandria thousands people in street to ask him to leave.
Autistics are not monsters! This man is a monster

Obama is boarding Marine 1 being updated on the way. He's taking massive strides the informer is almost running to keep up! The military must get rid of the generals and protect the people.

he army is behind the population. So this part is good. The rest of the world made it clear what was the best.

Mubarak doesn't have much support. How he will be able to stay safe without the army to protect him? Will the army protect him?

Re: Egypt- "Jan25_ Day of revolution"

Omar suleiman is worse than mubarak with his slow and useless speech.
I fear tomorrow will be a day of violence in the street. Now population calling army to take action. Not giving up until mubarak & omar leave.

That's the question... do they have some *privileges* to lose ?

And who's going to take Mubarak's place ?

The army will get nothing to protect him. Because what he is doing now is to isolate the whole country on the international level. Since it is clear that no country want to support him, it won't serve Egypt to have the army sticking to Mubarak.

The strikes, the protesters, the lack of money getting into, around and inside the country will make his position even weaker.

The guy has a Narcissistic personality disorder. He won't let the power. He will die on it.

This is my prediction of the day! Wait and see.

Re: Egypt- "Jan25_ Day of revolution"

The Republicans here are saying: Obama must ensure an orderley transition of power, that the US has massive arms deals with the military.
The democrats say the US must send a clear message that democracy is under threat, that if the army moves to crush this it will be catastrophic. Moreover the lobbyists must lay off Obama and let him address the future of the people of the Middle East.
Republicans are fighting back- the US must make sure that the Egyptian people respect the US relationship with the army and ensure the security of Egypt. US politicians are really fighting it out. There must be some major Republican deals in Egypt!

MSNBC care calling Muburak 'sadistic' and out of touch. So in one hour they should be at the Palace, maybe they should wait for the demonstrations tomorrow? These people must be so tired and hungry.

Re: Egypt- "Jan25_ Day of revolution"

Iran is becoming interesting to observe: tomorrow a rally organized by government for commemorating iranian revolution. Will it turn into a solidarity demonstration for egypt & tunisia or a new democratic revolution?
On monday 14 feb, the iranian opposition requested authorization to demonstrate solidarity with egypt & tunisia. It can turn out and revive the iranian spring revolution.

Iran has been saying for days that they will crush any resistance. They announced it publicly and put the hikers on trial. If the US interferes they will execute the hikers.

If the army is behind Mubarak then why are there so many reports of the army picking up protestors & delivering them to torturers? Can someone comment?

The situation is ironic - in many countries people are forced to retire at 65 & find it difficult to find decent work if they want to continue working. In Egypt (& Iran) these 80 years old cling onto their jobs by all means possible.

Also ironic, the Supreme leader in Iran supports the Egyptian revolution & crushes his own.

Re: Egypt- "Jan25_ Day of revolution"

So Mubarak is still there, his money is still here & the Army didn't storm the palace to hang him in Tahrir square. Political life has no guarantee of a happy end.

My estimate: Mubarak's life expectancy is longer than many of the demonstrators in the square.

Shame: It would have been interesting to see democracy in the most influential arab state, but instead a whole generation of capable, open minded young leaders will be wiped out. If we are lucky they will learn organizational skills in one of the best schools: prison.

Maybe when they get out they'll be more effective.
