[Updated 10:04 a.m. (1704 in Egypt)]
CNN's Ben Wedeman reports his
first sighting of Egyptian army troops
getting involved in the unrest in Cairo
.

Two armored personnel carriers arrived near a bridge to cries of
"Allahu akhbar" from protesters, who apparently believe the army
will show more restraint than riot police have, Wedeman reported.

What comes next if events unrolled naturally. Is there a leaning more to a theocracy? Are these young people more secular? Egypt's population has gone from around 40 million to around 80 million since Mubarak has been in power. The median age is 24 for 2010. Egpyt's religious makeup - Muslim (mostly Sunni) 90%, Coptic 9%, other Christian 1%.

If this is real - I can see why Israel would be freaked out. Or is there a Black Hand ((Serbian: Црна рука, Crna ruka), officially Unity or Death (Уједињење или смрт, Ujedinjenje ili smrt), was a military secret society founded in ..) like show being orchestrated? I think this is for real. Maybe some other interest at play here? Is there not huge oil/gas exploration efforts going on in Egypt on land/offshore pre-drilling right now?

Egyptian protesters chase police from main
Cairo square, some officers join demonstrators

By MAGGIE MICHAEL | Associated Press | 14 minutes ago in World

Thousands of anti-government protesters wielding rocks, glass and sticks
chased hundreds of riot police away from the main square in downtown
Cairo and several of the policemen stripped off their uniforms and badges
and joined the demonstrators.


An Associated Press reporter saw the protesters cheering the police who
joined them and hoisting them on their shoulders in one of the many
dramatic and chaotic scenes across Egypt on Friday.

After chasing the police, thousands of protesters were able to flood into
the huge Tahrir Square downtown after being kept out most of the day by
a very heavy police presence. Few police could be seen around the
square after the confrontation...........

Update 2:40pmEST Friday
They've done it!
The deployment of the army means the Regime is finished


Quote:


The Egyptian capital Cairo was the scene of violent chaos on Friday,
when tens of thousands of anti-government protesters stoned and
confronted police, who fired back with rubber bullets, tear gas and
water cannons.

The reason the people are welcoming the army
on the street is that the decision by authorities to
deploy the army effectively ended the threat that
protesters might be shot by interior ministry thugs
and it took the police out of the equation.

So that was an admission of defeat by the Regime.

The deployment of the army simply puts a floor
under the potential for destruction and buys time
to figure a Mubarak exit strategy.

The revolution has succeeded.

Now it's a question of degree.

All of this is a body blow for the NWO and
It's puppet leaders across the Arab world
.

IIRC, my previous bosses (both Egyptians, one non-practising Muslim, the other Coptic Christian) told me that Mubarak was a puppet, put in place by the ruling "faction" after Sadat's errr...removal so as not to get in the way.

Likely they will find a suitable replacement in quick order.

Fintan makes a very good point in this post. If, as in Tunisia, the military is not embedded in the corruption of the government, this may be the best thing to happen for the protesters. It's the local police goons currently causing the violence in Egypt and elsewhere.

I don't have a clue where this is going and the fakes are all over the claim that the "CIA/NWO" is orchestrating the events but there are lessons to be learned.

Could you imagine if this anger bleeds (sic) over to the US with the military standing down?? Yikes! We live in some interesting times!
