The POTUS should be speaking soon about this.  It's coming up live on CNN/Fox.

I also believed he wouldn't do it. Maybe he did it to avoid futher deaths or blood baths, which in the end was the best he could do for his country.

Now I hope Egyptians can build a real democracy...

And now what?
It's always a risk throwing out what you know if you don't have something new that will work for sure.
Let's hope the extremists don't take over!
I wonder what Israel thinks about this?
It's still bubbling hot in the middle east, and I'm not talking about the sun!

That's what I was thinking too. What is next? Who will take power and what that will bring to the international table. Egypt is a old ally of the western countries, will stay that way? Extremists taking over would be a disaster and would bring alot of problems to a already troubled region...

It's indeed a very risky situation...

This is why I rather object to him leaving immediately; there's nothing set up and if the Muslims take over, it'll mean the destruction of the antiquities and the pyramids and the sphinx. The youth don't want the Muslim Brotherhood, but they've just irresponsibly created a vaccum.

For me, I have a great amount of respect for Dr. Haas and democracy itself.  As long as they understand what democracy entails, I retain hope for the region.  As long as they are ready to sacrifice for the greater common good, and get their collective butts in gear to establish a constitution, STAT, it will be difficult, but do-able.

Wow, I was a bit shocked to hear that, but it dosent mean that Eygpt can't have a smooth transition to democracy. What they should do is set up an interm government who promises not to run for re-election in a six month timeframe and get to work. It can work . It has before. Fingers crossed for Eygpt.
SOme very beautiful things have come out of this protest , like people joining hands and protecting thier national treasures from being looted. I doubt the muslim brotherhood could get away with blowing up the pyramids...  bignono
