    This is most likely the case that Egypt's citizens will be subjected to denial of service by providers cutting off communications networks.

    I can not help but wonder if one day we will see an Anonymously owned/run internet provider that would remain immune to a single country/region corporate denial of service to citizens?

    In any case, God bless the citizens of Egypt today in any non violent protests they have the heart to engage in, and may the future provide better citizen communications support structures.

    Another suggestion.
    I can't read the text, but let me guess. That's a can of something nasty like oven cleaner, correct?

    If so, then Epic Fail, and probably copied from some Black Bloc manual called something like How to be a Really Stupid "Anarchist" Wannabe.

    Please think about it. That's not passive resistance.

    Even if someone actually sprayed a policeman in the face and eyes with it, what would it accomplish? (And afterward, would they visit that person and his family to apologize for blinding him, that it was nothing personal?) The sprayer will still get a savage beat-down from the other police, quite possibly killed. It sucks, but please be rational and accept that.

    • You would become dangerous rioters rather than peaceful demonstrators in their minds.
    • The officers who are not thugs would become just like the ones who are, and seek vengeance on everyone there for that act of one person.
    You cannot defeat the police and army on the streets through combat. (And if you did, you would have dangerous anarchy and chaos with radical influences at work and outside interference soon to follow.) You must defeat the police in their hearts and minds. Convince the passionate that you are expressing the soul of the Egypt that they are sworn to protect. Convince the practical that you represent the coming peaceful and prosperous Egypt and their jobs depend on choosing the winning side.

    What you need is for the police and army to stand back and let peaceful protests happen while they continue to stop violence and extremists, and keep order. If that happens, the current government will crumble and a quick orderly transition to a new, better and stable government can begin. (This would be good for international political relations, trade, financial markets and tourism--not to be sneered at.)

    I assume that's what you want.

    Just a suggestion.

    I'm pretty sure if the cops are already beating people to death on the streets it's okay to tell people they can defend themselves with whatever they can cobble together. You know, to keep from dying. I'm pretty sure WWP still believes in self-defense.

    I've got the impression the US government would be fine with a massacre if the prevents the Muslims to take over. I'd like to see the american people pressing their government to support democracy in Egypt, but I do not hold high hopes on that...

    Islamic governments are not exactly what you would call democratic or supporting human rights. No religious government is, since it puts arbitrary religious rules above basic human rights.

    This could turn out very badly if the generals decide to follow orders from Mubarak.

    This might be the tipping point. I'm holding my breath here...

    Agreed. The Egyptians are calling for elections, most of their population is under 30, some of them are tech savvy. I might be wrong, but I'm somewhat confident the Egyptians will not change an authoritarian regime for another. I'm wrong, though, they are entitled to choose their government. If they choose another dictatorship, I guess we will just have to accept that.

    It would be difficult for any single provider to remain immune, especially if they were dependent on "actual Internet" routing. Tethering a network together from a quantity of individually anonymously owned wireless routers placed throughout any given urban area would be a simple workaround. Setting up gateways between cities in a hub and spoke fashion as well as to/from the Internet itself could be achieved using any available means of connectivity down to modems and landlines or even thumb drives and pickup trucks as required.

    Yeah. Because LOIC works so well on a shut down internet.
