    Photo: A comparison between what AlJazeera is showing and what Egypt TV is showing:

    Our country needs to stop using our taxes to supporting dictators & corrupt regimes!
    We look so hypocritical supporting freedom of speech & democracy when we are holding a young man in a military prison for allegedly leaking information about horrible crimes our military committed!
    Now a US bill is in the process of being introduced to give Presidential power over the Internet! A Turn Off Switch by our own government! WTF?
    Free Egypt!

    There is no chance that'll pass, especially not in the US.
    Not to mention the simple cure for every internet problem, ever - proxys.

    They should just give up before wasting tax-payer money setting it up.

    I curious, what if a Muslim fundamentalist ends up controlling Egypt, wouldn't that be exchanging one repressive regime for another?

    Egyptians were scared for so many years to voice their opinions and ask for their freedom. Now that they have spoken and fear has left them, they will not let an opressor rule them. They want a government that represents all people.. Free elections for all.

    You have to keep in mind that for so many years the Egyptian Regime didn't leave any opposition party without much harm. The Brotherhood is organized but they are a minority amongst the majority. They are loud and made a voice for themselves but they do not represent the populous. Most Egyptians are moderate and will not accept to be like cattle again.

    The people have spoken and they will continue to do that!

    When? And what was covered.

    Precisely why such things would make sense. "even the United States" Why should we be any different from the change we would like to see in the world?

    It was just a thumbnail on one of the videos. The young men were blowing whistles non stop and it was causing others to join them or ask for their cause. People are all the same. If you 'piss' enough people off bad enough they will eventually want to hear what you have to say. "Knock knock! 'Who's there' Knock knock! 'Who's there?' KNOCK KNOCK!!! 'Who's there???' KNOOOOCK KNOCCCCKKK!!!!!!!!!! 'WHO THE FUCK IS THERE?!?!?!' Anonymous!" lol

  25. Perikles Member

    what, a reason to stop all imports of guns, misils, fuel and food?

    Evidently you are aware of a stage in their strategic planning that I am not.

    To the people of Egypt we are behind you & support you! Your courage, hope & dreams for a better future is beyond words!

    Thats real nice, but with all the Internet restrictions there I don't think they are watching any videos, but just resorting to texts messages and such. Can you send that again in ASCII?
  28. This was covered on one of the Sunday news shows this morning, or maybe CNN last night. There are several huge differences between Egypt and the United States, and that extends to how we connect to the Internet. In the United States 77.3% of the populace have Internet access. That contrasts strongly with Egypt, where the number is somewhere in the 20-30% range. Also, there are four companies, Link Egypt, Vodafone/Raya (yes, that Vodaphone), Telecom Egypt, and Etisalat Misr control almost all Internet access going into and out of Egypt. In the United States, if it were to happen, there would be many, many more companies spread across a much wider area (and some with foreign ownership who would kindly tell the United States government to fuck off), and there's an excellent chance more than one of them would say "No U". The President does not have that authority, and moreover, even if a killswitch were to be enacted and exercised, our technological infrastructure and geek-to-normal ratio is high enough for a workaround to be in place in hours. We can't forget about people connecting to the Internet via cell phone, which adds another layer of difficulty to killing the Internet in the United States. Finally, can you imagine the kind of bitching Amazon, Wal-Fart, and other major retailers would do, and how many lolyers they would dispatch, were this to happen?

    Tl;dr: An Internet kill switch would not work here, and would land the person exercising it in prison, where he or she would learn the intricacies of our legal and corrections systems very intimately.

    While Egypt erupts in a massive show of the "People" wishing to decide their own fate, Democracy in action, Hillary Clinton sleeps at the wheel while Obama plays politics, more worried about who might replace Mubarak, than he is about the citizens of Egypt and their right to define their own future. The US government Should be all for promoting Democracy and freedom, yet they pause while history passes them by. This is a sad state of affairs for a nation founded on the principles of freedom.

    "[America's] glory is not dominion, but liberty. Her march is the march of the mind. She has a spear and a shield: but the motto upon her shield is, Freedom, Independence, Peace. ... she goes not abroad, in search of monsters to destroy." President John Quincy Adams's speech about America's foreign policy July 4th 1821

    TBH, "supporting the people" is usually a euphemism for Oil.

    It's a very good guess. The GINI coefficient isn't a great measure of inequality when there are small groups of extreme values.

    I respect these people enormously. To not care what gender, religion, beliefs or views you have. No matter what part of the country you come from or how much is in your bank account, they all join in for one singular cause. Freedom and to have rights as any human should deserve to hold.
