I need some enlightenment on what is going on over there. It seemed to have come out of the blue! Their President has said that he would leave right after their elections and had even requested that the elections be moved up so that the people wouldn't have to wait until September. They have gone 30 years with him, so I don't understand why they aren't willing to wait just until someone else takes over. What, exactly is the problem? What is our media leaving out? Or did I miss something?
I didn't think I was hostile, I apologize if my answer seemed this way. I could be hostile now since I typed a long answer out and accidentally deleted it. grrrr
Anyway, I searched for an article that would best answer all the points you might have questions about. I was in Jordan when the protests began in Tunisia. Everyone around me were saying if the Tunisians succeed this will spread like wildfire. Egypt has a lot of influence in the Western world and the Arab world, and they are also influenced by the Western world. Power to the People right? If the Egyptians succeed then I would look towards Yemen, Jordan and Syria.
Here is the [LINK], I hope you find it resourceful.

This is not all of a sudden, it is just news in the US now. Yes he has been President for 30 years and for each election he mysteriously wins with 99.99%...more BS from him.

GemGem, yes you are correct about the average pay. In Jordan we have what is called a Janitor for Building/Flats. The majority of houses are flats in a building. Each Building has their own Janitor who does everything for them, takes out the garbage, wash the cars, gets your groceries, etc. The majority of them are Egyptians. They go there to make money, put up with this POS job and send all the money home to their families.

Next question overall
Can you be sexually abused VERBALLY, as opposed to physically?
