Chaos Continues As Mubarak Digs In

IT IS NOW BECOMING INCREASINGLY CLEAR THAT HOSNI

MUBARAK WITH NOT GO QUIETLY INTO THE NIGHT.  I'M

STILL NOT CONVINCED THAT THE CROWDS IN THE STREET

TRULY REFLECT THE WILL OF MOST EGYPTIANS. THEIR

VOICES ARE LOUD AND THEIR DETERMINATION TO

CONTINUE IS OBVIOUS.  EGYPT IN MOVING TOWARD THE

ABYSS AND THE NEXT FEW DAYS ARE CRITICAL.  IN THE END IT WILL BE THE

EGYPTIAN MILITARY THAT WILL DECIDE THE OUTCOME OF THIS STRUGGLE.

I'm reasonably sure that the events in Egypt are in the style of 19th Century European Revolutions against tyrrany. I see no burning effigies of Uncle Sam or the the Union Flag neither do I see any evidence of their revolution being based on either Islam or Islamism.


During an earlier crisis involving Arabism the French military rulers of colonial Algeria attempted to launch a coup d'etat against the home Government of President Charles de Gaulle. In anticipation of this he had ensured that the troops had been issued with the then novel transistor radio which gave them access not only to pop music but also to the news and current affairs and for that reason the coup failed.

Similarly the conscript troops of the Egyptian Army are the sons and brothers of the folks in Tahir Square which is the reason why Mubarak cannot use them as a tool of repression.

Sadly though I see a Karensky figure appearing to lead aa liberal looking replacement regime only to be overthrown in crisis by the Moslem Brotherhood in the role of Lenin or Ayatolla Khomeni.

Those are great comments Banned. Revolutions are by their very nature unpredictable and often the intended results are never gained. Modern day protesters have learned to disguise their true intentions and are very careful to hide their true feelings. I feel the protest in Egypt have been very well organized by extreme left wing groups---socialist, communist, radical Islamist and others, seizing on the events in North Africa and the corruption in the Mubarak regime. Egypt was a ripe plum ready for the plucking. This revolution will not, in the end, have a good outcome for the man-in-the-street in Egypt. The end result will mean only more instability in an already dangerous part of the world. This peaceful revolution will lead to massive bloodshed in the end and just perhaps another large Israeli-Arab conflict that could easily end with nukes be used by the Israeli if they are about to be overrun by the Arab masses.

I fear the outcome of the protests and change in power will produce increased persecution upon Christians. I noticed in that polls that the Egyptians form of freedom is far different from our thinking. Theirs is more in line with barbarism.

Emotion takes over for reason in that part of the world daily.
