Will the goverment of Hosni Mubarak fall this weekend? Will the military take over in an attempt to prevent the muslim brotherhood from making Egypt into another theocracy like Iran? I don't know, but all I can say is that we are living in dangerous times in this region. As CNN International put it, if the Tunisian uprising was a 3 or 4 on the ricther scale, than this has the possibility to be a 8 or 9, as Egypt is the most populous arab nation. According to CNN, the police appear to have left the streets of Cairo, leaving it to the military, who have been called in to all the major cities. A general curfew starting at 16:00 Cairo time took effect to little avail. Also the goverment ordered the shutting of all mobile phone and internet operators. Also, the ruling parties headquarters has been torched. Gunfire has been heard on the streets of Cairo.
