    They have 18 (eighteen!) tanks left over from the Soviet border guard. Parades, eh.

    18 tanks seems quite a lot for the stretch

    I feel bad for those who can't understand Arabic. The most amazing song for the revolution: http://bit.ly/euev0n #Jan25 <-- anyone got a translation for this? I would love to know it.
    here is the translation
    I'm sorry it's kinda fast translate :

    I went downstairs, I said I'm not come back
    And I wrote with my blood in every street
    now everyone listen what i said
    we broke all inhibitions
    Our weapons were our dreams
    our future is totally clear
    From long time we are waiting
    we are looking for someone understand us
    In every street ,
    Voice of Freedom calling us
    We raised our heads in the Sky
    And we don't care for hunger
    The most important is our rights
    And we are write the history with our blood
    If you're one of us
    Leave the huffing and tell us
    u will not leave your dream
    ,stop saying "I" we are all with u

    song by : Downtown team
    song name : Freedom Voice

    * just a note

    al tahrir is arabic word mean liberty so we are in liberty square
    This is the reason for the Protesters stay in al tahrir

    Hmmm....
    Egypt's Facebook page (putting it really simple here) numbers in the hundreds of thousands when it comes to watchers.
    This guy's FB page is only around 1,000.
    Bad publicity, maybe?
    Doesn't help that the last I've heard about Vietnam was in an LA Times article. I don't remember the specifics, but it implied that things weren't as bad as before (the main subject of the article left Vietnam, returned some time later, and was pleasantly surprised by...something. Like it wasn't as oppressive as before).

    Well, like China Vietnam has been experiencing growth.

    In my personal opinion and I wonder if Sea would agree. I see Laos, Vietnam and China as destined for South Korea's fate. They will capitalize more and more (all three are on various points of this path, China ahead, Nam in the middle, Laos only just starting).
    Economic growth will lead to increasing and increasing living standards.
    And eventually enough of the population will start to resemble the middle class of a developed nation. And it is around that time that tolerance for authoritarian (albeit technocratic) government will end and demonstrations will be huge and the Commies will step out of power.

    This is what occurred in South Korea.
    And in Taiwan's case the government was actually ahead of the curve and started democratizing on it's own when things were becoming very prosperous.

    These are headlines right now (I didn't listen to the pieces), but...
    Egypt: Military dissolves Parliament.
    Constitution suspended (?)
    Protesters (some of them anyway) are going to keep the pressure up on the military.
    Yemen: Police cracking down on anti-government protesters.

    Yeah, they suspended the constitution and the army will be in control until the next election. Also they expect the emergency rule to be lifted at some point.
    Hidden:
    "The Supreme Council will run the affairs of the country on a temporary basis for six months or until the end of parliamentary and presidential elections," it said.
    It announced a new constitution would be drawn up and subjected to a referendum. The current constitution, effectively set aside on Friday when Hosni Mubarak's resignation left the country without a president, made it virtually impossible for independent political parties to challenge the ruling National Democratic Party.


    -Algeria 'to lift emergency laws'

    "All the demands are to do with human rights and nothing to do with the ruling family and their regime."

    However, he warned that if the government resorted to violence then the people might be forced to even demand for a regime change
    It always help to read the linked article.
    ----

    There is this joke about Bouteflika going to the streets and protesting with the people against the government. This joke comes as some experts say that Bouteflika doesn't have that much control over the government and how the system in Algeria is 'complicated'.
