    Because the poverty, corruption and rampant unemployment they`re protesting isn`t like the middle ages at all.

    Because the poverty, corruption and rampant unemployment they`re protesting isn`t like the middle ages at all.

    And bringing molitov roostertails and machetes to a rally for "peacefull gov`ment change" is a real good idea.

    I think the poor are easily stirred up by the violent factions who want to take down the only muslim government with a long track record of peace and stability.

    But then, I don`t know any more than you guys. Just biased news reports.

    A "Molitov roostertail" is when you feed a rooster cheap vodka for a few years, making it a high explosive bird when lit.

    But anyhow, as for bringing weapons to a demonstration. The Egyptians have had their share of violence aimed at them when peacefull as it was the case in the initial revolte.

    The "million" march was peacefull, up untill pro Mubarak protestors suddenly showed up on the scene.

    This is good for the people of Egypt and points a finger in the face of America for propping up another mideast dictator and supplying him with arms to use against his own people.
    If Egypt wasn`t such an important oil transit hub we`d have nothing to do with them and in turn they`d have no problem with us.
    Our foreign policy towards mideast nations is unfairly tilted towards their their leaders at the cost of their citizenry. The best way to spread democracy is to lead by example and not interfere.

    I`d be very surprised if this turns out well.

    There will be a power vacuum and the people who fill it are likely to be those that want power the most, who are most often those who deserve it the least. I would not be at all surprised to find that in a year or two the people talking passionately about liberty are more oppressed than they are now and much of the world is propping up a more oppressive regime in Egypt because we need the Suez canal open.

    Good point- but since the US does pay lipservice to the value of Democracy, maybe it shouldn`t actively work against it abroad by supporting tyrants like Mubarak, Suharto, Saddam Hussein, and the countless others we`ve propped up.

    But I just want to know why there`s a violent protest in Egypt? I`ve been so busy with some other stuff that I haven`t gone up to date with current affairs. So yeah, help a guy out?

    The current economic situation has hit Egypt quite hard because their economy is largely based on tourism, so many Egyptians are worried about their futures and blame their government, as people do.

    Islamic fundamentalists are campaigning for more power by stirring people up - instability enables a power grab.

    Egypt is ruled by someone put in place by the military. It`s not a particularly free place. Most Egyptians used to be sort of OK with it because it isn`t a brutally oppressive regime, but the previous two factors have put an end to that tolerance.

    It`s probably true that most of the protestors are acting on noble principles. It`s also probably true that they won`t be the people with power after a revolution - it`ll be in the hands of those who ta

    ...in the hands of those who take it.

    So you can expect an extremist rule of some kind, which will probably be worse for the people in this video than the current system and will almost certainly be worse for us. It could also trigger religiously motivated revolts in other countries, possibly leading to a widespread extremist Islamic alliance across the middle east and northern Africa, which would attack us sooner or later in a variety of ways, which could well lead to another world war.

    The comments in here sums up the frustrations all of us in Egypt are feeling.

    The government is killing us and treating us worst than animals and people are debating wether it would be a good move or not to remove Mubarak from power.

    The fact is this, we do not care what would come next, we do not care how relations with USA or Israel or any other country in the Middle East will turn out after this.

    All we care about is our basic freedoms. The freedoms which most people here on the comments have and are taking for granted. We no longer want to be ruled by a dictator who cares very little about us unless we fill his pockets with money. We want to be in control of our future and want to guarantee a future not just for us but for the generations to follow us.

    We are fighting and dying on the streets for basics freedoms which should be the right of any human beings. And while we do that the world watches and debates if it will be a good move.

    yehia you don`t know as much as you think you do. Stop making wild accusations. It`s not fair that you blame the rest of the world. A lot is being done by Americans. Many of our reporters have died helping. It`s not as easy as let`s invade the country and help overthrow the leader that we`re allies with. Even if we had a disposable military and weren`t billions of dollars in debt.

    Revolution has to come from within... Not an external source, if you do it your self it has more value than if you get someone to do it for you..

    PierreJeanFR: Your naivity is touching. I shall print your post out so I can smile at your childish innocence when I need cheering up.
