Breaking news said that he's handed power to a "High Military Counsel"..... what do you think that means and where do you think Egypt goes from here?

  • He handed power over to his VP yesterday and fled Cairo to his "resort home." What does this mean for Egypt? Shit nothing. Corrupt people are still in power.

    Me too steph, but I have a feeling they are jumping from the frying pan into the fire. But I hope I am wrong.

  • The Egyptian people trust the military. I have several friends on facebook from Egypt and they seem happy about it.

  • From what I have read, this is (by most definitions) more of a military coup... They have a long way to go... I hope the people get what they really want... This is only the beginning what will come ahead....

  • There's certainly been some tense times during this, but overall I think it's been a good demonstration of what the voice of the people can achieve if united, in the right and persistent. I think they have a long way to go as a country and a people, but I think we can take a lesson from them -- metaphorically of course. The violence should never have happened, but the *gist of it all does prove how far the people themselves are willing to go to take their lives back. I applaud them for that.

    I also wonder if we Americans could or would be so strong, have the stamina and put it all on the line like that to correct our own government. And I do admit that I find the spirit of their people inspiring.
