    Bravo! I applaud the courage and conviction of the Egyptians who are fighting for their freedom and lives in the streets. It is the RITE of every human being to live their best life without oppression from a group or government. In spirit, I stand beside you Eygpt in this most noble cause.

    Prime Minister Cameron of the U.K., sounded like Obama's puppet when asked if he supported Egypt's president. He never answered the question but instead, spouted the usual democracy line, and how to build one etc. What a load of crap!

    England and the USA have supported Mubarak and other criminals around the world for as long as I can remember. You all talk about democracy, but while the folks living in Egypt have suffered for decades, you (USA) have ignored their pain,and negotiated only for self interest.

    The word DEMOCRACY is cheaply thrown around but really all you care about is, who controls the flow of Oil? You have known of Mubarak's terrorist tactic's all along and have turned a blind eye to them to fulfill your own self interests.

    When this movement starts getting close to the main Arabian Oil Fields, who will you back then? I think we already know.

    Your "democratic" beliefs' are like religious beliefs. As long as it works for your side, its right and good; damn who it hurts or kills outside the good ole' U.S. of Eh.

    What's happening in Egypt has nothing to do with the U.S.

    HOW CAN IT BE that no look is being taken on tv of the great Obama speech in Cairo two years ago? In one sense, it might be said that speech took root and is the genesis of what is going on today.

    Instead of running the same comments over and over, look backward and find something really new all over again.

    I'm Egyptian who lives in LA. Just wanted to tell you from an Egyptian point of view what we Egyptians think after Mubarak's speech today. Everyone is very disapointed, we have heard what he's said today a thousand times during his 30 years of presidency. He's so provoking to the point where he actually tried to take credit for letting people protest because HE LET THEM!!!
    They wont stop protesting in Egypt until he steps down. We just hope that the Islamic brotherhood don't take over, it'll be another disaster!!

    Guys wake up. Before praising the democratic process in Egypt remember Iran 1979 and the PA in 2006:
    – the muslim brotherhood is the largest non-governmental group with a support of about third of the country. this type of organization is the most likely to take power when everything clams down. They ride the liberal wave and will use their power and force to take over at a later date.
    – 30% of the population cant read or write. They get most of the information about the world from the local imam. Do you think that this is a viable base to start a democracy?
    – democracies in the arab world should be developed slowly. Everytime there are free elections in the arab world the influance of the islamist groups increases. Lebanon, Gaza and Iraq. Democracy does not promote stability in the middle east.
