Yes, those pro-Mubarak demonstrators with Molotov cocktails etc. Old old story - plain clothes security trying to beat down a revolution. It is very like 1989, but turning from Czechoslovakia to Romania.

Talk about outside strategic interests from whatever side is not only beside the point at times like this, but actually disgusting, like talking about the rights of servants.

I don't know whether or not the comment above is spam - but, read out loud, it forms - accidentally or not - a sound poem of the dial-up handshake noise that has been one of the sound effects of the Egyptian uprising.

It turns out that you can (almost) shut down a broadband internet network, but to stop dialup, you have to cripple the entire telephone system. Who knew, in 2000, that bloody dial-up would become a gallant old technology, wheezing in to help in a time of need?
