According to a report from The Arabist, "Egypt has shut off the internet."
The fastest way to bring down a dictator is to force him to act like one where everyone can see it.
As Bill Engvall would say, "Here's your sign!"
Shutting off the internet will only enrage people all the more. Think of the rioting that breaks out during blackouts, only worse, because the people know the shutting off of the internet is a deliberate attack by the government. By this action, Mubarak has admitted the rule of law has failed and it is the tyrant against the people. My money is on the people.
Worse, even if the organizers of the protests wanted to cool things down,now they cannot. The riots will no longer be on planned locations, the rioting will be everywhere!
Way to go Egypt! Time to bury another Pharaoh!
