    Re: Riots erupt in Egypt as protesters demand end to Mubarak regime

    Almost all revolutions go through several phases. Sometimes the forces of the old order attempt to ease out the ancien regime in the hope of heading off true revolution at the pass. I think this might be what is happening in Egypt. It reminds me of the old Russian order attempting to use Alexander Kerensky in the first phase of the Russian Revolution. Too late. The next phase of the Russian Revolution saw Vladimir Lenin and the Bolsheviks show up.

    As I said, "Whatever the path the Egyptians choose to take, it is inspiring to see people stand together for a non-violent revolution!"

    Don't forget, this is an Egyptian revolution, not an American revolution

    The question is how long will it stay non-violent?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Just to have accomplished what they already have through non-violence is damn impressive!

    In an act of defiance they've stood up in mass to a dictator and his army and taken their non-violent message to Mubarak and the world that they demand freedom!

    Looks like they lost out, because Mubarack said he isn't going anywhere.

    What now?
