Egyptian Protests: Update I

Wow.  Egypt is on fire.  There are protests everywhere and the government is trying to crack down and beating and arresting people.  At least 5 people are dead, mostly in Suez.  This is the 2nd day of protests and it's not slowing down.  Journalists are being targeted and Facebook and Twitter may or may not be shut down.

It's a shame that this is the only way Egyptians have of removing a president who has been in power for 30 years.  The United States is worried about losing an ally, but it should be more concerned with helping Egypt become a true democracy.
