    I must tell you the truth which maybe some of you know; first the embassy car video was deliberately shown to turn people against the US since you embarrassed the government and told the whole world the truth about Mubarak and his regime. Also the vice president he is the head of the spy department, he is like the head of CIA in America so everything you have seen of violence is his work. The only way out for the Egyptian people is the Army; they are the only people can take him and his regime out and FAST.

    Thank you for everything you do and show on TV

    Not allowing the press to freely report will backfire on Mubarak and his government as far as foreign support goes. I'm watching Anderson on his show now and he is at least not having to hide in a room tonight for the broadcast so hopefully things are easing up. These non-violent anti-Mubarak protestors remind me of the civil rights movement in the 50s and 60s; non-violence won out then and hopefully it will now as well.

    I feel that a true journalist will face danger at times when reporting an event – especially in a revolution or reporting in a war zone. I am disappointed to hear Anderson Cooper make a comment about being in danger and frightened. That is what a real news reporter may face at times. What did he think he was going to, to cover a church picnic or a baby shower?

    Freeze his own and his family's assets.

    Mubarak's family wealth that was being systematically and illegitimately built exceeds $40 Billion.
    I am an Egyptian American. I can assure you that there is no legitimate private business in Egypt that can generate this amount of cash.

    Freezing their assets and returning it to the people of Egypt will result in:
    1- The corrupt regime's inability to pay their way further into Egypt.
    2- It's a huge gesture of good faith to the people of the Middle East and, consequently, a blow to AlQaeda and terrorism.
    3- The Egyptian economy will be revived and poverty levels improving. Poverty is the breeding grounds for all types of violence.
    4- We, Americans, don't wind up paying this money out of our own pockets!

    Freeze his assets.
