Protest Spillover

Go down

The Deteriorating situation in Egypt

Post by Donald Williams on Sat Jan 29, 2011 7:12 pm



Protestors are clashing with police all over the country, the internet has been completely shut down over there as well.

This could have major implications on US policy in the middle east, The US had a major influence in their current leader, unfortunately, his tyrannical policies have pushed the nation to its breaking point. If the government crumbles, the one that is installed may not be so kind to the Western World..

That is what I am picking up right now. 69% according to the PRC poll of Egypt's civilians are dissatisfied with the way Egypt is going now. If I living life on 2 bucks with a college degree I would be pissed off too. I just hope this leads to the best, not the worst.

The situation is getting worse, violence is beginning to erupt between pro Mubarak and anti Mubarak citizens.

Anderson Cooper and his crew from CNN were attacked today by the pro Mubarak protesters. No one was hurt but man is it intense over there. At the end of this things are going to be much different for better or for worse.

I'm really interested in this whole political process going on over there.

They're drafting an entirely new constitution because the old one was tailored towards presidential and administrative power. I also saw a video clip of them removing all of Mubarak's paintings or any relative representation of him.

Furthermore, I know a young Egyptian was quoted in saying that he was "21, and this is the first time I've ever felt free in my country."

Protest Spillover

Post by Cjanz on Mon Feb 28, 2011 10:46 am

The domino-effect the protests have had over the past month is remarkable. First Tunisia, then Egypt, Bahrain, Libya, etc.

It'll be interesting to see where everything is a year from now.
