al jazeera live feed

erm, guess the video link is dead. it's removed now.

in case you're living under a rock, the rioting in egypt is still going on. i fear for the safety of the citizens not wanting to participate who are caught in the middle (though most of society is on board with rising against the corruption of their current leader mubarak). it's an unfortunate time over there and we should all be grateful that we're allowed to be fat slobs over here in the united states. or, you know, wherever you're following me from. the news is starting now 11pm est.

I am so intrigued as to what is going on in Egypt. It's the first time I've ever seen a revolution and it is amazing.

by the way, how do I follow you? Do I just do the join this site thing? or what?

Metatron said...

Sometimes, you have to riot in order to acquire change.

jonwinters said...

@more ducks you did it right, don't worry.

I wish for a fast resolution in Egypt. Don't take for granted what you have in life.

Weve gotten to a point that modern government is too complicated. Too many people involved, too many things under government control. It would be easier to make sure everything was going smooth if it was smaller.

I think it will be interesting to see what this means in the long term for the rest of the region. After Tunisia and now Egypt both pretty much staging or attempting to stage a forced change of government, perhaps it will give confidence to political dissidents in places like Iran to follow a similar course of action.

We live in interesting times.

Joe Biden doesn't consider Hosni Mubarak to be a dictator (PBS News Hour, 2011-01-27). Your hope, change, and tax dollars at work.

Rondariel said...

I truly hope that this revoution will lead to a free and democratic Egypt.

RatsRunThisTown said...

I just hope this has a positive outcome, and those that are dying, died for something that will have benefitted the country.

It's amazing to see this revolution. To see people finally fighting back, and refusing to be walked over.

Mr. Insanium said...

Its good that theyve started rioting, people power can do incredible things and ina world where we are all connected so easily, it will be organized people power. Hopefully they overthrow they're leader and the corruption and can attempt to recover the country

The worst we get here in England is when the student's decide to protest about tuition fees; at least the army aren't attacking the Egyptian protesters or something like that, I suppose.

temptation said...

thanks for the link. i will follow the riots also here

Banacek said...

I think it's beyond time for Mubarak to step down. He has to accept the fact that his son will not be the next president.

Ian Begley said...

Hope the rioters get what they want.

G said...

Tunisia - Egypy...I wonder who's next, especially if food prices keep going up

papi said...

Obama's Iran?

Renee said...

Egypt is located right in-between the two most unstable regions on the planet, I'm not so sure that what they're doing is good right now. They're not even protesting any longer, they're rioting. The Egyptian people are setting as much of a bad example as their government is.

Master Maniacal said...

They need all the luck they can get right now, hopefully they'll get the change they deserve.

Jamie said...

Hopefully any casualities will be at a minimum. And as people said, there wouldn't be a riot unless there was a good reason for one.

Snickelsox said...

Just wait, the rioting will begin here soon enough. Too many pissed off people with guns...

Ultimaniac said...

Nothing anybody says here can convey enough understanding and well-wishing. I hope a modicum of peace found soon.

Rabidmoose said...

I've been reading a lot about the Egypt stuff, sucks for them = /.

I'm quite proud of the unity the Egyptians have. I love the sense of unity. It gives me chills.

I started September and I blog daily. I post almost twice a day if I'm not busy. Also, keep tagging. That's the best advice I can give you.
