What exactly is going on in Egypt? I have seen stuff on yahoo and also some stuff on the like world news channels, but they are not really saying exactly. They are mostly taking about like the fights and protest but not really telling much more? I don't watch the news a lot so I didn't really see how this got started. All I really know is its crazy there right now and I guess the people want the leader out! But LMK? cool.gif

There is a huge, young, well-educated middle class
that is underemployed or underpaid. These 20-40
year old protesters have put up with this governments
lack of social and economic reform for 30 years.

The stew was bound to boil over.

I've heard the issue is with runaway inflation and high food prices.

Anyone old enough to remember the late 70s could see this as a replay of what happened in Iran. That didn't work out so well.

I wouldn't say they are to blame, but they will incite more uproar.

And I would simply call them extremists, not "leftist".

Regardless, let's just hope they don't take power.

They keep saying it isn't about religion.
Kind of like the actor or athlete that says it isn't about the money.

My take on it is the protests started over food shortages and inflation. However, now Hamas and other fundamental Islamists are flooding across the borders through the Sinai peninsula. Subsequently, the protests are becoming more violent.

Side commentary: Mubarak isn't the greatest leader in the world, but Egypt has nuclear capability and I'm not sure allowing him to be ousted is in our best interests when taken into account the allegations that Iran funded muslim groups are flooding into the country.

On the other hand, this seems like a classic case of divide and conquer. Let's see how many directions we can pull the American Military before they falter.

If the allegations are true, perhaps the Iranian President is familiar with this piece of wisdom: "Never let a crisis go to waste."

Where have I heard that before?

Chris,

If you're referring to sports teams, only U of I. If you're referring to politicians, only downstate politicians. I think everyone south of I-80 should band together and secede from the dictatorship. I didn't vote for the Messiah, but that's a discussion for a different thread.

Puleeze, can we get all of the foreign

From what I understand/read/heard (BBC, AP) it's the Mubarak supporters who are getting violent, especially today. As for "extremist" or "leftist" let me just say that MANY of the Egyptian protesters are young and have Western educations (and highly educated). The majority aren't following any particular extremist viewpoint. They simply want a government that isn't corrupt... They want elections. You can't condemn a mass protest simply because a few fringe groups have used it to get their voice heard on world news. Nothing says that Egypt will be anti-American when this is over, if anything these young people are very pro-American. They have treated our people and reporters with respect as this has been happening, as far as I know.

It's getting worse, thanks to pro-Mubarak protesters. Throwing molotov cocktails in the square, off the top of buildings, etc

Anderson Cooper and other reporters had to leave the area as they were being attacked as well.

I find it laughable that Western political
terminology "leftists" is being used to
compartmentalize a culture and a movement
that dates back to 3,000 B.C. or earlier.

It hardly applies to these folks that
have never lived under a Democracy.

I kinda get this feeling that we will be soon heading over with troops if this doesn't stop and really fast!


They are now started shooting in the streets! The death toll is rising. Its crazy from what they are showing on the news channels.


And I thought Egypt was a ally of ours?


And they are not being nice to us over there, thats why they were telling all Americans to leave as soon as they can! And there was a reporter of two that had to run because they were get beat on, I think one of them was hurt bad in the face!


And there was another country that was saying the were going to stop helping them or cut of money or invade or something like that if it didn't stop. I cant think of hand what country it was.
