    • The hair on the back of my neck stood up watching the altercations between the army and the protesters. Time for change, I agree. Unemployment, poverty running rampant. No one can live on $2 a day.

      Mubarak needs to go. 30 years of corruption is more than enough. He shut down the Internet so the world can’t see his true colors through the words of Egyptian citizens.

    • I feel so sad for the country.  I hope things get better before they get worse.  I see that Mubarak doesn’t have the loyalty of his military- he should leave and go to whatever country will grant him asylum or I fear his days are numbered.

    • I’m very worried - I think they have been under an oppressive regime and apparently huge gulf between rich and poor but I also worry that it will now become a very oppressive Muslim state - there is also unrest in Morocco and Tunisia and Lebanon - we all have to remember lots of these countries are very much part of the power players in the Middle East and can cause an oil crisis !

    • One always worries when any country in that region is going thru this kind of upheaval.  All it takes is one country exploding to set some of the others off.  For those who have said the economy is going to get worse before it gets better... well, this could be a catalyst for its getting worse.

    • My daughter’s friend has family there and the things she is telling us is really scary. She was able to talk to her mother but now that communication is gone.

      It is scary and I am following it....

    • It has just been on the news here reporting live it seems to have got worse.
      My cousin was supposed to be there next Tuesday on a cruise down the Nile ! They are very heavily reliant on tourism and especially from Europe so this will be bad for them.

      You have to remember you have had a massive fiscal melt down and when you have a cough we have full blown epidemic so they must be really hurting and also their standard of living is not like ours and they have internet etc and can now see how the rest of the world lives and want some of this ....

    • I can’t watch it for long and I am worried. The looting is disturbing because they’ve been in their famous museum, destroying it, and what is the point?

    • I heard this morning that protesters tore off the heads of 2 mummies at the museum and they’ve dispatched army troops to guard the pyramids and the temple at Luxor. 70 people have died so far, I hope they find a settlement soon.

    • It causes me such pain to see things like this happen, especially when it comes to those countries! One always have to wonder, “what next“. We can just hope for the best and whatever happens keep our dear brothers and sisters here, there and abroad in our prayers.

    • @Mamapan we are lucky we don’t live in an oppressive regime where everyone spies and everyone is scared - but they have.
      Yes it’s sad and scary and I hope they find the right kind of peace but I think this will drag on for a few months - people once they get a taste of freedom will not give up easily

    • I’ll catch up on this evening’s news.  I thought how sad that they did all that destruction to the museums.  I heard they were looking for gold.  What a shame.    Sure makes me glad to live here in the USA that’s for sure!

    • As we had this question I saw this in a popular news paper and thought I would post the link as it talks about a "domino effect" round the area of Egypt and that part of the Middle East.

       The domino effect: Tunisia engulfed. Egypt in flames. Jordan teetering. As the Arab world unravels, should the West be worried?

    • We have been watching everynight.  When the thugs on horses and camel’s came weilding in with their whips it looked like something from a movie!  And now in Yemem they are protesting over there as well I believe they’ve called it “A Day of Rage“.  Pretty damn scary stuff imo!  And it ain’t over yet!frown
