    I think it's time that the State Department unequivocally condemns this, and cuts off all military aid to Egypt.

    The US has enough on its plate without stirring up trouble in Egypt.

    A short-term humanitarian mission in a small African nation where we'd be welcomed is hardly the same as "intruding like a big dog" with no clear goals in mind in an Arab state of 80 million people.

    Tim-
    They do that. All of Egyptians will become radicalized. Which would bring a serious war.

    And it would cause for more ME countries to become radicalized because who would be giving Israel hardware and other war material? The US!

    Thousands protest in Jordan

    Thousands of Jordanian opposition supporters took to the streets Friday in the country's capital demanding the prime minister step down and venting their anger at rising prices, inflation and unemployment.

    It was the third consecutive Friday of protests following Muslim prayers in Jordan, inspired by the unrest in Tunisia and rallies in Egypt demanding the downfall of the country's longtime president.

    I have no desire to derail the thread but there's no evidence to support a claim that a short term mission exists when the problems in Cotes D'Ivoire go back to the armed rebellion in 2002.

    Omg.
    Al Jazeera live.

    The protesters have just stormed and pushed back most of the police from the bridge.
    They are aiming for the Presidential palace and square

    I heard on the radio this morning that Egypt's intelligence has ordered the cellular carrier in the country to cut service off immediately and the company has agreed to comply. Looks like this may escalate dramatically.

    There's quite a hubbub at the Egyptian embassy here in DC.
