A New Day for Egypt

Last night, Omar Suleiman appeared on television to announce that Hosni Mubarak would step down and that power would be handed to the Egyptian military.  Today is a new day for Egypt.  Though my time in Cairo was brief this time around, covering the revolution was one of the most intense and inspiring things I have ever done and I am glad that I got to see some history in the making.  Best of luck to the Egyptian nation and the Egyptian people.

  1. What happened in Egypt proved that Mubarak was better leaving a week earlier,stubborness and defiance of people will, will not help.
    in Syria the army will not fight to the end,this is said to instill fear in the hearts of people,I am not a professor so I CAN make outrageous statement
    In Algeria the regime promised to remove and get rid of the emergency rule,this must be done in all Arab states and all political prisoners must be released,no one should be put in jail because he said something the military court consider it may weaken the people spirit.
