Turmoil in Egypt
I feel like every headline I read about the anarchy in Egypt is only getting worse and worse. What do you guys know about it? How could affect the global relations of nations.

Majority of people want Mubarak OUT, but today the 30-yr president’s supporters clashed against previously non-violent protesters demanding his departure. When (if) he leaves there will be an interesting transfer of power depending on which groups vie for it. Hopefully it is peaceful.
Democracy is perferable over a dictatorship. I do hope that it can be a peaceful transition and that the government that replaces the current government is an improvement for the Egyptian people. If there would have been legitimate elections previously, it probably woulndn’t have gotten to this point.
I heard that the Cairo museum was on fire today…that seriously disturbs me. Thousands of years of Egyptian history in danger of being destroyed. And by the Egyptians themselves…it’s just terrible. I don’t understand it. Even if Mubarak doesn’t think he’s wrong, he needs to step his ass down for the sake of peace. I just can’t fathom what it must be like for the people that are in the midst of this. We take so much for granted living in the US and other peaceful, stable countries.
We are now a global world due to technology like the internet and I think that is a good thing, the sad part is we can meet as people united in beliefs on here while our governments still follow red tape and bureaucracy to get things done. We forget that the loss of history of the human race from museums is about us all! All our loss! Together we are very strong.
