    If Mubaruk had half a brain he would have left office a week ago. He is personally going to be responsible for the collapse of a nation.

    Hey Anderson, I hope that you and crew are safe and well. Please try to get some sleep if possible. I do not know if you are sleeping well. I do not what will happen tomorrow or the next day or the upcoming days during this crisis in Egypt. Please remember that everyone who watches AC 360 and is a fan of your show and your outstanding journalism skills and reporting really loves you and cares about you and respect you. Everybody is praying for your safety. I am praying for you, your crew, the journalists, and the people of Egypt. Please try to get some sleep and be careful. Egypt is dangerous now, be careful. I love you and I hope everything is okay. Have a good day.

    those in positions of authority have to realize that the world will continue to watch this play out as it happens – not only is this history in the making – it is live and interactive as it is happening – it must be both exhausting and exhilarating – good night/morning

    President Mubarack is not taking a stand. He is letting the people of his country do that for him. He is just another cowardless leader, standing behind his military blockade.

    Anderson & All the Crew, I'm so glad you are safe. Please consider withdrawing from the scene–it's not worth your lives–this display of violence is completely insane & out of control. I cannot believe what I am seeing. People of Cairo: GET A GRIP!!!

    What we and the world can do, is to keep a watchful eye on Egypt.

    Am I the only one who feels like this is a powder keg situation. Does the middle east need one more crisis right now. This whole scene feels dangerous.

    Mubarek is in denial.

    To the entire CNN team and all the journalists putting themselves in harms way, in front of and behind the video and photo cameras, stay safe. Thank you for putting yourselves at risk to bring important stories to the world.

    I am also sad for the violence that the Egyptian people are experiencing, but we are also witnessing a real time example that truly proves that freedom really isn't free.

    @Starr, "Now, Mubarack most certainly made a plan to initiate this violence and stand his gound."

    Mubarak did not respect the wishes of this people and underestimated their dissatisfaction.

    Good night Anderson, Isha, 360°Team, Jo Ann, Mike, Megan, Nicole, Gloria, Casey, Starr, Nina & Bloggers. & Moderator(s)
    The coverage from Egypt has been gripping; it's not worth your safety or life. (Anderson, Ivan, Nic and crews) I hope that Ben & his family are going to be safe. If you're all going to see a "repeat" of Wednesday, come home!
    Thanks for the extra hour of coverage tonight.

    Night Anderson and crew be safe and God be with you, all.
    Take care Anderson we will pray for the people there.

    I wonder how long it will take Ivan to hook back up with Anderson's group. They need to be all together.

    Please all stay safe and try to get some rest, even though that might not be possible.

    Goo night Emily and Jo Ann

    Mubarak’s offer not to run in September gives him seven months to organize a government with ‘his’ people who will continue his dictatorship. There would be elections – but conveniently rigged…

    CNN is a giant among news broadcasters. Your reporting brings the tragedy of Egypt into our hearts as well as minds. Keep safe.

    Anderson and team – keep safe. you all are doing a great job with coverage. you all are very brave for going out into the crowds and are great journalists but do not risk your life for your job. stay safe! hopefully this will be resolved soon

    I agree with John King. Egypt has broken away from this past president.
