Egypt-Not Looking Good

There seems to be a leader emerging from the chaos, Mohammed ElBaradei.

Just who is this guy Mohammed ElBaradei ?

Egypt Protests: Will the Real Mohammed ElBaradei Please Stand Up?
In the name of democratic reform, Mohammed ElBaradei is doing his best to appear as the annointed one to succeed Egyptian President Hosni Mubarek, should the government fall. In reality, ElBaradei has more in common with Iranian demagogue Mahmoud Ahmadinejad than anything remotely resembling democracy. He is the former Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), where his primary legacy was running interference for Iran and ensuring that Iran is now on the verge of acquiring nuclear weapons.

Advice from Iran to Egypt

This is hilarious, Iran knows all about the will of the people.

Iran tells Egypt to listen to the people’s voice

TEHRAN - Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast has advised Egyptian officials to avoid resorting to violence in dealing with the popular demonstrations in the country.

“The demonstrations of the Muslim Egyptian nation are a movement seeking the realization of justice and Egyptians’ national and ideological demands. Egyptian officials are expected to avoid the use of violence in dealing with the people,” Mehmanparast said in a statement.

He also advised the Egyptian government to listen to “this Muslim nation’s voice,” to accept the “Islamic awakening” and to submit to the people’s demands.

Iran hanged two men Monday for their actions during post-election unrest in 2009, state media reported, months after the United States' secretary of state called for Iran to drop the "imminent" executions. Iran's Press TV described the men as terrorists and members of the Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO). Jafar Kazemi and Mohammad Ali Haj Aqaei were hanged on Monday "for distributing placards and photos of the terrorist group, making videos and images during the post-election unrest in Iran in 2009 and chanting slogans in favor of the MKO," the state-run Islamic Republic News Agency reported.

Egyptian soldiers show Solidarity with Protesters

Everybody remembers the lone protester facing down a tank during the Tiananmen Square massacre.

In Egypt the Army has sent tanks to the streets of Cairo where thousands are demanding the resignation of Hosni Mubarak.

Presently as the local police beat the protesters and open prisons to create chaos in the streets, the Army at least is a stabling force.

Egyptian soldiers show solidarity with protesters, activist ElBaradei joins demonstrations

CAIRO - Under the protective gaze of Egyptian soldiers, thousands of demonstrators converged on this capital city's central plaza Sunday and vowed to occupy the site until President Hosni Mubarak steps down.

But even as the gathering gained strength, fears rose across Cairo of mass looting after sundown by armed thugs who were widely believed by Egyptians, as well as by soldiers, to be operating at the behest of the nation's much-maligned Interior Ministry.

In Tahrir Square, the central plaza that has been the focus of anti-Mubarak sentiment, protesters and soldiers worked together to beat back two Interior Ministry vehicles that attempted to enter the site. A tank commander then scaled his vehicle and announced to the crowd that the Interior Ministry, which operates the nation's police force, had deployed thousands of armed men who were bent on sowing chaos in Egypt.

The army, he said, "would stand with the people."

The commander, dressed in battle fatigues, was cheered by the crowd and kissed on the
cheek by demonstrators who chanted, "the army and the people are one."

Hundreds of anti-government protesters have returned to Cairo's central Tahrir Square, chanting slogans against Hosni Mubarak just hours after the Egyptian president fired his Cabinet but refused to step down.
