Breaking news ‘Egypt is free! Egypt is free!’

UPDATE:   Here’s a link to the Al Jazeera English page with the video from Omar Sulieman on the resignation of Hosni Mubarak. (Scroll down a bit)

“It’s absolutely insane!”   Al Jazeera English correspondent in Tahrir Square.   You gotta watch Al Jazeera English.

I have to say – I am fucking impressed they got it done without a slaughter which I was so fearful would happen.

One story via ABC News.   Now the Egyptian people can decide what and when to do it.


Made in the USA!

Oh yeah – here we go.   According to a couple of reports I’ve read and newscasts I’ve heard the amount of foreign aid to Egypt – specifically for military/security purposes – is given at $1.3 billion in 2010.   Billion – billion…..not measly millions.

The photo above is part of an amazing photographic slide show of the Egyptian protests against the government of Hosni Mubarak.   Several of the photos are terribly graphic and may be disturbing.  It’s a truly sharp picture of the reality happening in Egypt currently.
