    Tunisian Revolution and the Middle East

    http://twitter.com/#!/mosaaberizing http://twitter.com/#!/evanchill We'll see. They're showing footage on CNN now from Cairo. Live coverage at the moment. ---------- Post added November-22nd-2011 at 08:47 AM ---------- There are a lot of rumors about this sort of thing floating around right now. http://twitter.com/#!/Reem821 http://twitter.com/#!/hany2m http://twitter.com/#!/evanchill ---------- Post added November-22nd-2011 at 08:54 AM ---------- I'm getting too tired to stay up much longer. If the SCAF is going to make a statement they better do it soon. ---------- Post added November-22nd-2011 at 09:05 AM ---------- http://twitter.com/#!/iyad_elbaghdadi I just heard a massive roar or cheer coming from the crowd. Something major is going on. Watching on AJE now, The muslim brotherhood is still not taking part in this and told their people not to yesterday. There are many younger members who showed up today anyway to rally alongside the liberals. ---------- Post added November-22nd-2011 at 09:11 AM ---------- Infamous video of the dead protester being dragged by security and left amidst a pile of garbage. ---------- Post added November-22nd-2011 at 09:13 AM ---------- A man in a military uniform is now being shown live on tv carried through the crowd and hugged and adored. (AJE) It's also being shown on state tv there apparently. ---------- Post added November-22nd-2011 at 09:21 AM ---------- Apparently he's a lieutenant general! http://twitter.com/#!/Thanku4theAnger Pretty amazing footage on tv now.

    Tunisian Revolution and the Middle East

    http://twitter.com/#!/SultanAlQassemi I sort of agree with the premise, but I think they may be missing the mark. People don't want a transition process now. They want a transition. The process should have been enacted months ago. Perhaps if Tantawi were to step down, political prisoners were released, state media was dismantled, and the transition process is started immediately it would work. But just saying they're going to do something soon or putting out a timetable isn't going to cut it at this point. http://twitter.com/#!/blakehounshell ---------- Post added November-22nd-2011 at 02:23 AM ---------- http://twitter.com/#!/jamalAljazeera It doesn't look very crowded right now. ---------- Post added November-22nd-2011 at 02:36 AM ---------- They have some non-fans: http://twitter.com/#!/AsadHashim

    Tunisian Revolution and the Middle East

    Do you know a lot of people who are out there in Tahrir right now, or in detention? Just curious. It does seem like things have happened much quicker this time. It might be partially because the regime decided to mount a huge media propaganda campaign to slam the protesters in every way possible right after the security forces decided to beat the crap out of people and shoot their eyes out and get themselves caught on video doing it. Also people have been getting more and more upset with their tactics over the past months. By the way, you probably shouldn't quote the pic.

    I didn't think he did, but someone put up poll numbers on twitter earlier that had him at 19% in second place to Amr Moussa 20%, no idea if the numbers are accurate. It seems like less and less are wanting the elections to go forward anytime soon. I heard a lot of people were canceling or postponing campaigns this morning. Not sure if the MB are still pushing for it to go forward though, they were yesterday. The US and Europe I think have both come out and (stupidly) said the elections need to take place as scheduled. ---------- Post added November-21st-2011 at 07:37 PM ---------- http://twitter.com/#!/ghazalairshad ---------- Post added November-21st-2011 at 07:52 PM ---------- http://twitter.com/?photo_id=1#!/Egyptocracy/status/138771969582694402/photo/1 http://twitter.com/#!/Egyptocracy

    El Baradei is supposedly being considered for PM by the military council. It would probably be a mistake for him, since he would end up lumped together with them and would probably have his credibility tarnished.

    Al Jazeera English just anounced that the cabinet resignation has been accepted! Unfortunately for the SCAF it ain't the cabinet that the people there want to resign. http://twitter.com/#!/SlipknotMody http://twitter.com/#!/ahmed http://twitter.com/#!/Reem821

Quite a massive crowd right now.

The sort of thing you expect from Russia actually. You think they would have learned by now to get ahead of these things. ---------- Post added November-21st-2011 at 01:53 PM ---------- A better statement would have been: "We urge the Egpytian government to treat their people with respect and refrain from actions which will only reopen old wounds" Or something like that. Make it clear that you support the Egyptian people and their rights, without calling for anyone to resign or having to specifically condemn anything. (yet) And don't foolishly come out and say that the election needs to be held on time, which is growing more and more unpopular now.
