[quote:Anonymous Coward 5696950:MV8xNzA5MzEzXzI4MjYxNTg3X0UwQkI5NTg=] [quote:DoorBert:MV8xNzA5MzEzXzI4MjYxNDgwXzkxQUQ0NkND] [quote:Anonymous Coward 5696950:MV8xNzA5MzEzXzI4MjYxNDY3XzkxNEFGRUUx] Our Culture Minister even quit over these clashes, in protest. the SCAF said they would hand power over after 6 months to a civilian interim government. NOW, they want to stay in power til 2013, that's the last roadmap they gave. MANY are opposed, including Moussa and Baradei. Moussa also spoke out against this harsh tactic and beating down and killng protesters. People say it seems like Mubarak still in power and Habib Al-Adly not in jail but still directing the police. This is not over...now they killed 35, injured over 1700, people will gain more support now. Except this time, it's against Tantawi and the USA, so it can get worse than the days in January. Pray for us!!! [/quote] My prayers are with you and the good people of Egypt. Stay safe and please report in when you can. [/quote] Thank you for the kind words and prayers, we can use them. I'm really worried how far this will go. A truce was negotiated, they let protesters sit in, police retreated. The crowd in Tahrir is MASSIVE now. The mood is somewhat subdued...people are talking low and calm. Some chanting and clapping here and there against Tantawi. There are shots now, not sure what it is, probably tear gas? If they try to attack again, this will be more bloody than before. Women and children are there too...nobody is afraid anymore. It is now clear they don't want to install a true democracy, they wants to install a Dictator again...in form of Military being in charge. The US loves Annan, I had suspicions and many of us did. Lets see what they will do now. [/quote]
