    People should be very careful buying into the International Press "Freedom & Democracy" hype over Egypt & Tunisia. The radicals are already beginning to seize control of Tunisia. This is also likely to happen in Egypt as well. As usual,the International Press has it wrong. These uprisings may have been about "Freedom & Democracy" in the beginning but it is the radical Islamists who are going to benefit most in the end. So be very careful what you wish for people. What replaces Mubarak could end up being much worse for both Egypt and the World.

    Odds are the government that replaces Mubarak will be even more oppressive and corrupt than the one the Mubarak had.

    Yea i was just reading about Tunisia and the radical Islamists there are now seizing control of the country. This comes right after the International Press told us for days that it was all about "Freedom & Democracy" in Tunisia. The same will happen in Egypt as well. The radicals are seeing all their dreams coming true in Egypt & Tunisia. That's what's really happening in these countries.

    Radical Muslims know how to take advantage of Democratic movements, all they have to do is get voted in once and than impose an Islamic government and shut down elections, Hamas did it in Gaza and now the Brotherhood is making a move in Egypt.

    Countries need to learn they need to revolt and build up their own governments and we need to learn it's not our job to intervene or install our kind of government.

    Kudos to the people of Egypt for going this far in the face of tyranny, however it's probably not even half the battle.

    I see the Leftists over at CNN and the BBC are now trying to legitimize The Muslim Brotherhood. They're even calling them the "Good Guys." The Left is so misguided and ignorant on these issues. The Muslim Brotherhood are anything but the "Good Guys." Yea it looks like the radical Muslim kooks will be taking both Egypt and Tunisia. I just don't see any other outcome.

    The Lefties over at CNN & BBC really should stop shilling for The Muslim Brotherhood. They're hardly The "Good Guys." People should read David Horowitz's book 'Unholy Alliance.' It gives you a much better understanding on why Leftists always seem to side with radical Islam. Most of that support stems from their irrational hatred of Christians. The Muslim Brotherhood taking over in Egypt will prove to be much worse than Mubarak. It's just too bad the jerks over at CNN & BBC refuse to see this.

    Libocalypse what would your solution be to a group of citizens living under a dictator (don't give me that election b-s) they hate who they know doesn't have their best interests in mind?

    There's nothing more inspiring than watching citizens rise up against an evil dictator, but that's only half the battle as the other half is putting in a gov't that won't do the exact same thing.

    But, some folks don't learn from history.

    Hey, let's try, anyway...

    On this day, February 1st, 1979 Ayatolah Ruhollah Khomeini arrived in Tehran [the Shah had left for America for cancer treatment] stating: “I beg God to cut off the hands of all evil foreigners and all their helpers.” Summary executions began.

    On February 1st, 2002 Daniel Pearl was an American journalist who was kidnapped and murdered in Karachi, Pakistan. Pearl was murdered and beheaded. Pearl's body was found cut into ten pieces and buried in a shallow grave in the outskirts of Karachi on May 16. On February 21, 2002, a videotape titled The Slaughter of the Spy-Journalist, the Jew Daniel Pearl, was released. The video shows Pearl's mutilated body and lasts three minutes and 36 seconds.

    February 1st, 2011...propitious day in Cairo, Egypt?
