Mubarak Steps Down

'Egypt is free! Egypt is free!'

Wild cheers erupted from tens of thousands of demonstrators in Cairo's Tahrir Square after word spread that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has resigned. Demonstrators chanted "Egypt is free!" upon hearing the news.

Yeah, but this is a lot more secular, and totally home-grown, in one of the big three historical powers of the middle east. This couldn't be better news.

All because of one twentysomething fruit merchant in a tiny village in a third-world African country decided he'd had enough. It's amazing that it can all be traced back to one guy's one desperate, final act, which wasn't to shoot a place or blow up a national landmark somewhere. Mind-boggling.

Regardless of whether this had admirable aims to begin with, radical elements exist and will attempt to gain control. The people of Egypt have crossed the Rubicon, the die is cast. They must ensure that this turns out to have been good. If they allow the Muslim Brotherhood or similar to take over, matters are worse than before. This is only one step in a long journey that requires vigilance.

I find it utterly despicable that some people still manage to taint this and fear monger. They would rather have Millions of people live under a brutal dictatorship, live way below poverty line, not experience or even sniff the God given right of freedom to express and live just because of the remote possibility (after seeing day in and day out the past 18 days reasons that suggest otherwise, reasons for hope) that this change could harm their interests. ****ing despicable shit. That is probably the lowest a human can get. Very selfish and sick.

I can totally agree with this. They're in a good position to fight off the radical elements, but those same radical elements would see control of Egypt as being a huge feather in their cap.

I have a question ...

To what extent is the military associated with Islamic fundamentalism?

The military has leaned toward the secular side, but anything is possible now. I just hope the Egyptians make the right choice.

Get over yourself, Fritz88. No one here would begrudge the people of Egypt having a government that is genuinely based on individual freedom. But there's not a lot of that going on in the Arab and muslim world these days. It's perfectly reasonable to be skeptical and it's also perfectly reasonable to be concerned about what a contrary outcome would mean for our interests. F*** Egypt if it reverts to an alliance with anti-Western socialism or decides to side with anti-Western islamism.
