Egypt: Internet down, police counterterror unit up | Top AP Stories | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle
Egypt blocks Internet, deploys special force ahead of mass rallies -
Sounds like we should shut off all their foreign aid money for not practicing freedom & the American way...........cough.
See why Government's should not have the power to shut down the net?
It's no government.
Egypt is a classical dictatorship with the leader's legitimacy not coming from monarchy bloodline but by simple hi-jacking of the power by 1 man and securing this status by military and security forces.
Doesn't mean, that the other Arab monarchies are any better, but at least they have some legitimacy through the royal families, who had initially the backing of the population behind them through the Euphoria of becoming independent.
Scarey stuff, Divey.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Saturday afternoon be-headings is a much better alternative.
I'm aware of the political 'system' in Egypt and I agree that the others are equally crap..... and we don't want to be handing a kill switch to ours.... because they abuse power.
What do the Egyptians want? An Islamic theocracy or a democracy? Do you know? I'm genuinely curious.
The Egyptian people are sick of being ruled by a puppet dictator backed by US/Israel money and weapons.
