Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
hear hear steve! i have tears in my eyes as i see the future, much due to the internet, of people power, and the death knell of dictatorships ringing chimes of freedom.

4000 years of pharaonic rule... pow!

glad to see you back, btw.

I am also impressed by the Egyptian military.  They were adamant from the first that they would not fire on their own people.  (I can't say the same for the military from my own country)

Perhaps they weren't the most successful militarily but they showed the world that they are truly a great army.

I hope they continue with this attitude and allow the people's will to be manifest in the way Egypt will be governed in the future.
