    Mubarak's gone (finally!) within the last few mins.

    Hopefully Egypt will get back on it's feet pretty quickly.

    That's amazing! Awesome! That's a world I wanna live in (not a world where people need protection, but where people will step up for each other, no matter what beliefs)


    Heard that too :D (Live info out of Bahrain ^^) Yay

    I heard the military took over for now. Hopefully they won't keep the power to themselves. As the military so often did in the past...

    Hope for the best. I think Yemen is currently going through a revolution, or at least they're having giant demonstrations. Iran's President (can't remember his name, Ahmijinehad or something), tweeted that any youth who didn't protest would get 1900 microsoft points, which is just LOL. Jordon might be having demonstrations, but their government is better than most. I bet down the road they get a constitutional monarchy with a good democracy.

    Thing is, Omar Suleiman is in power now. Whilst Mubarak is gone, nothing has essentially changed so far. The fact that Mubarak has cleared the field saps the momentum of the protesters. Indeed, Tahrir is breaking up.

    Although not quite the same, Mubarak himself was the heir of the former president Sadat when he was gunned down in a coup d'etat. Suleiman might well be Sadat the third, when it comes to that.

    I doubt there will be much of a change. And if there is, it'll probably be for the worse.
