Egypt looks Bad.
From following the news it has become clear that the situation in Egypt is quite bad (and that is putting it lightly). What started as peaceful protests lately have become violent clashes between anti-Mubarak protesters and the police/pro-Mubarak protesters (I use a "/" because it seems both are on his payroll). For a good summary of what has happened read this article by the New York Times. It seems things got especially toxic after Mubarak said he would resign...but not until his term was up in September. This did not go over well with the populace. Now all hell has broken loose and it doesn't seem things are going to get any better soon. I just hope in the end things work out and Egypt gets the democratically elected government the people are protesting for.
