Demonstrators turn Violent in Egypt

Now the Pro Mubarak and Anti Government are fighting each other in the streets.
I've heard some in the media say it is government led. The Army is doing nothing. I think it was inevitable. What do you think happens next?

  • Oh like this was a shock. I was waiting for them to start fighting with each other on the streets. I am actually shocked it took this long to happen.
    I think two things will happen. Either their President will do something no one agrees with and goes out there and pushes the protesters home. He steps down at the next election. And thats that.

    Or

    We will see a fight for power in the streets., Democracy will still escape them. Many will die or be injured. Many artifacts will be destroyed while this happens. Gas will go up. Other countries will eventually have to step in to restore order.

  • If they close off the suez canal it may push drilling in the US but not before rationing and 15 bucks a gallon prices for a few years.

  • I hope gas prices increase so much it forces the US to find alternative ways to produce energy NOW. Its time to break our dependence on the middle east.

  • If they close it we will just have to drill. Plain and simple. Unless you have a way to give people who are poor new cars that are hybrids then what good is new energy? people still have to go to work. I know for me, I cant afford to go buy two new cars for me and my dh to drive. He has been laid off twice since 2004 because of outsourcing. So that isnt an immediate answer.
