Cairo....protesters kissing the army...
protesters and the army protecting the National Museum together...

Kudos to ISP's in France for bringing up thousands of modem dial up lines for
Egyptians to use....

Yemen..Jordan...

Should be fascinating to see if Lebanon, Syria, can keep the lid on simmering
disgust at regimes there....

the twitter #egypt and #jan25 hashtags....extremely passionate from
the Egyptian diaspora....

the Arab internet user is a freedom symbol now....about time...

They saw what happened in Tunisia and the success of the people's actions.

I suggest Mubarak and the other "dictators" in the middle east run for the hills. Even the Saudi's must be having kittens watching this unfold.

Watch oil prices go sky high in the near future.

And make sure you have a shortwave radio, and preferably also a satellite dish to hook into a PC (receive only) to slurp internet packets using skygrabber.

And solar panels.

Perhaps they all see a weak and rudderless America as an opportunity to attack isolated and friendless despots.

But at least American exports should be up due to the need to stock up on tear gas and rubber bullets.

Mubarak is obviously not listening to what the people are saying- he sacks his government and then reinstates them in different positions-duh!

Its going to get a whole lot uglier if Mubarak leaves and not only for Egypt, but the whole middle east.

Iran
