Standoff between pro-change and pro-Mubarak demos at Tahrir
February 3, 2011
The protests continue. Some in the US media (AP) are putting yesterday’s protest numbers in Tahrir square at 250k. Others say it is half a million but there is no denial that there are millions more watching the Egypt protest in Twitter.
Another fact is clear. Mubarak is not backing off. Obama Says Egypt’s Transition to New Government ‘Must Begin Now’ which sounds very vague. Shouldn’t he say bluntly to Mubarak “to cut and cut cleanly”. It’s been over a week now.
Just now there is an INCREDIBLE standoff between pro-change and pro-Mubarak demos at Tahrir.How long can these protests last?
