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

    The American position in the Middle East is in free fall. The Muslim Brotherhood says:

    "The leader of Jordan's powerful Muslim Brotherhood warned Saturday that unrest in Egypt will spread across the Mideast and Arabs will topple leaders allied with the United States.

    Hammam Saeed's comments were made at a protest outside the Egyptian Embassy in Amman, inspired by massive rallies in neighboring Egypt demanding the downfall of the country's longtime president, Hosni Mubarak."

    This is really astounishing news, tyranny can only go on for so long, mubarak, if you want to look at it from your everyday joe Egyptian citizen point of view, is a selfish tyrant and a greedy puppet who has ruled Egypt with an iron fist for three decades, unleashing his dogs on their own people to keep them silent, and yet this pathetic being still clings on to hope that he still will remain in power, and pass the keys to the country on his spoiled son, just to keep it in the family. He will be lucky if he doesnt burn in hell.

    Egypt is not Jordan. Jordan is not Egypt. Why some of you folks infer that all ME nations are cookie-cutter entities is beyond me.

    I highly doubt Egyptians merely seek to swap one form of tyranny (Mubarak dictatorship) for another (Islamist dictatorship).

    It's unlikely anything will change in Egypt. Merely demonstrating in the streets and looting is not a revolution.

    Score the victory for Mubarak

    Because, they are the same: Repressive, Totalitarian, Backward Dictatorships

    You mean, like in Iran?

    I'm just plain scared for the Egyptian people. They are surrounded by chaos, threatened by thugs, watching their world and their dreams fall apart. If I could click my heels together and be granted one wish, it would be that Mubarak would leave the country, the Egyptian military would protect the people from thugs, and a new democracy would take hold in which the people could choose their own government.

    I don't see that happening. Mubarak will not leave unless the military forces him out. And Mubarak... not his government... is the root of the problem.

    I TRULY dont think thats what the majority of protestors think or want. I wont be at all surprised if thats what they get. Ive got an old dented Ford that I'll wager that if Mubarek does fall, 2 years from now, people will be longing for the "good old days." Not wishing anything on them...I hope it works out well for them. Stil...

    if i was uninformed i would do weird **** like make up 95 posts debating Obama's Birth Certificate. some people apparently think that a person can become President of arguably the most powerful country in the world, without anyone looking into their background.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.
