    Interesting to see what will happen with Israel and the Gaza strip, as Egypt and Jordan are the only 2 countries that have a treaty with them. And also, how their democracy will pan out. Eastern deomcracy is different than western. Just saying.

    NOW IT'S TIME FOR OUR COUNTRY TO STAND UP AND DEMAND FOR EVERYONE IN CONGRESS AND THE WHITE HOUSE TO STEP THE FUCK DOWN….
    THEY ARE ALL NOTHING BUT A BUNCH OF NASTY GREEDY LYING STEALING MOTHER FUCKERS…

    Our country has the DIRTIEST POLITICIANS OF THEM ALL……
    If EGYPT can do it then so can we….

    Interestingly, the Shah of Iran was also forced out on February 11.
    -
    What the Egyptian army needs now, is a diversion.
    -
    Something to get the protestors attention off of their economy and lack of jobs – something that would immediately guarantee national unity.
    -
    Surely there’s a neighboring country around that poses a security threat. If only there were some neighbor that everyone hated, that was closer than the American coastline to target.

    Re: ILoveHp1234567 – I completely agree. I always go on LAtimes.com to check the news… then I came here and I see this crap. Over it!

    I'm wishing the people of Egypt all the best. Such a beautiful country. I just hope peace with Israel can continue and Egyptians can have a leader who listens to them and respects their wishes.

    To avoid the coming revolution here stateside, General Patraeus gets my vote to lead America, after BamBam is forced to step down, until a special election is held.

    America is in unchartered waters as well.

    it's funny how every other news corp is saying it will lead to good things…while FOX is busy tell us how it will start WWIII…that station should be ashed of themselves…all that HATE just to sell more GOLD during commercials

    Re: ILoveHp1234567 – Fuck you bitch. Why can't he talk about the most important story of today? Grow up.



  18. 18

    So no one noticed the Muslim Brotherhood ready to take over?



  19. 19

    Re: luvs2tango – That wouldn't guarantee national unity. Not all Arabs are rabidly anti-American/Israeli and bloodthirsty. They wanted Mubarak gone because he's been in power for 30 freakin years. As I understand it, the top Egytian Army general is actually pro-American and recently got back from a visit to the Pentagon. Lets see how things go anyway. Fingers crossed for peace and rationality.

    We can't have any interruptions of Kardashian and Heidi news… at least until they figure out how to avoid a picture, knowing the usual suspects will hit on that political subject.

    They just want their news and gossip sanitized to fit their agenda.

    Agreed.
    I have many ex-patriot American friends living in Egypt.
    They're all leaving though.

    Congratulations to the Egytian People!
    You have proven to the world that a nation can take back it's leadership peacefully.
    It is too bad that Hosni Mubarak never thought of his people & instead of himself.
    Good riddance!

    yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay congrats! shows people power can work!

    I think putting a smiley face on this situation is a little premature, who knows who the new leader will be? Will it be someone like the President of Iran who shoots and kills protesters. I found it somewhat unsettling today when I saw him praise the successful protesters in Egypt. I guess it makes sense since the most organized group in Egypt is the Muslim Brotherhood and the most organized group does have a tendency to take over a country. Oh and I forgot, I believe it was this group who helped bring the president of Iran to power.-Just a small detail that most main stream so called journalists forget to mention:o)

    Re: yumba1 – Are you Jewish, by any chance?



  28. 28

    Re: Zanooba – No, I am not Jewish, I just detest the Iranian president and Sharia Law. You know that law where they conduct regular public stonings. You know where they bury women and men up to their shoulders and groups of people throw stones until the buried person is dead. You can read about stonings in international papers and websites. Sharia promotes the killing of gays and the oppression of women. Plus, I really am not a big fan of the burqa, it really prohibits me me from getting an even tan. I also wouldn't like to be shot or thrown in jail for having a contrary opinion to the Iranian president. For some reason, I think the majority of the young Egyptians protesting wouldn't particularly care for these laws as well. I hope they succeed in building a strong government where they have the ability to flourish and enjoy their new freedom for generations to come. I just think there is still much work and organization to do in terms of finding a leader they can trust and support.

    I am Egyptian, he did good and bad things, his son and his son businessmen friends stole the country in the last years. We didn't like his son at all but he had many powers out of no where. But Mubarak himself wasn't all bad, he fought for the country during war and peace and defeated the terrorism in 90s when they were very strong in the society and could have done a taliban country. The corruption in the last years was every where and you couldn't get a job in the rich government departments without having a strong relative but we have many problems in our economy and we have very large percentage of children and youth. We were 40 millions in 1981 and now we are 80 millions most of them are angry youths who can't find jobs. We still have problems with the Islamist groups who have weird agendas but they are much weaker now. So I didn't hate or love Mubarak and I honestly wanted him to complete the last months and then leave because I am little conservative with my Arabic manners which say don't do the bad thing to someone when you can do the good thing. Now, we have to look at the future and we have many problems that I hope we can solve it, but we need to be realistic and understand the roots of our problems very well. tbc

    part 2 The last month was the one of the hardest times in my whole life, at the first week we couldn't leave houses after 3 pm, cause all the police just disappeared one day fearing the rebels and we had to defend our houses and streets without sleep and in cold weather, armed gangs tried to steal what they could steal and they attacked rich areas, especially malls and big stores. The military then came to streets and we felt safe but then the war between rebels and the government was harsh. Now, there are still rebels in the tahrir square who still demand for more things and if by tomorrow they don't leave, the military is going to make harsh decisions cause all powers are in the military hands now. I hope tomorrow is going to be a better day. I am tired now I may tell you the whole story tomorrow.

    Re: arabgirl – Thankyou for your story and stay safe!



  33. 33

    Re: arabgirl – *sighs* And to think, there are people out there complaining of petty things, like stolen snow shovels and $1 pay cuts. When you're having to go around wondering if you're even safe enough to walk outside! Well, even though I don't know you, I really do wish you the best. Good luck, and stay safe!
