Does Egypt’s Real Revolution Start Now?
Getting rid of Mubarak was the easy part. Taking on Egypt’s military  leadership will be far more difficult. As this article in Newsweek Internatonal by Mike Giglio and Christopher Dickey suggests, the high command is almost like  an inoperable tumor, living off the host’s blood, weakening it, but  impossible to remove without endangering the patient.

Three American students arrested in Cairo, accused of protesting
Their faces showed up on state television on Tuesday: These three study-abroad students, studying at American University in Cairo, were arrested for reportedly taking part in the mass demonstrations that have caused much unrest in the past few days. “The three boys were throwing molotov cocktails and had no passports on them when they were picked up,” claimed Adel Saeed, a spokesperson for the Egyptian general prosecutor’s office. Protesters have flooded Tahrir Square on Tuesday in reaction to a call for a “million-man” march. source

With 480 characters I undid a long career defending the weak and victims of injustice. There is no excuse for what I wrote. At the time, I did not know that the attack against Lara Logan was so severe, or included apparent sexual violence. Even so, any violence against anyone is wrong. I’ve apologized, lost my job, and humiliated myself and my family. But I, at least, don’t want to go down looking like a sexist pig. I am not. I am a staunch supporter of women’s rights, gay rights and the rights of the weak anywhere in the world.
