    IIRC, it didn't work out all that well for the Chinese.

    How long have the Egyptians been living under a repressive dictatorship?

    Yes, but---- "A fatwā approving the assassination had been obtained from Omar Abdel-Rahman, a cleric later convicted in the US for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing." (Found on Wikipedia)

    That remains to be seen. This ouster of Mubarak might be a soft coupe. They may now get a worse dictatorship or chaos, only time will tell.

    Forever--- prior to WWII, colonial oppression. After WWII King Farouk. Then Colonel Nasser. Then Sadat. Then Moubarak.

    Only time will tell if now it will become yet another military dictatorship. All those doing lots of dancing and cheering may be doing so prematurely.

    The big question is:
    How are 100+ thousands of people packed and crowded into the streets for 18 solid days
    and not a Port-A-John anywhere in sight? <~~

    On a serious note I hope that it all works out somehow for the Egyptian people. The U.S. military has a close working relationship with the Eqyptian army so that is one good thing.
    But, their economy is in a total shambles right now and it's going to get worse. The tourist dollars have fallen to zero. Investors have either already yanked their money out or they will as soon as they are physically able to again.
    There will be food shortages & store shelves are already empty. The banks are still closed.

    True, but we will bail them out! We'll borrow the money if we don't have it, and send it right over, because that is what we do! The only good thing is if China calls in all of their loans, they won't have anywhere to sell all of the really good items they send over here.

    There were a lot of guns... the military was holding them and supporting getting rid of Mubarak. So, who was going to fight the military ? This was 'technically' a military coup.... as Mubarak did not resign, the military TOLD HIM he was going to retire now and not wait... and he hasn't been seen since. He could be in a grave in the desert and no one would know right now, as no one outside the Govt / Military have seen him since the night of his speech when he said he was staying IN office.

    No country pushing to "see " that he has survived .

    Exactly, when this country becomes a theocracy and they start preaching hatred for us and Israel as a country and further destabilize the region, I would like to revisit this thread.
