hi all,

That statement from Cairo University law school is really massive as many of the people in Egypt have been waiting for an answer on the legality of this. The Mubarak side have been claiming that protests are unconstitutional.

latest I have,

There are now growing marches and sit-ins across the country, in what is being billed as another day of protest.

The crowd in the square is gathering as I type. Also growing numbers of people in Alex, Suez and other cities.

There are estimated to be pushing a million people so far across the country, with more expected.

Any reaction from the police/security forces Janey? If they decide to really crack down the military will have to finally make a binding choice.

right now, I am on MSN with a source who tells me that all is quiet and that the army etc are standing aside and letting this happen.

No sign of any scuffles with pro-mubarak people, but that could change as the day progresses

AJ earlier reported protests might be slowing but now have pictures up and say 1000's at check points trying to get into the square. Doesn't sound to me like loosing speed

Morning y'all. Just found this: sorry if you guys covered it, but it looked to be breaking:

http://www.businessinsider.com/senior-us-marine-says-multiple-platoons-are-headed-to-egypt-2011-2#ixzz1DMgkK2YRlala

apparently the alert that goes out to high-level US marines' families has gone out. The story says it involves multiple platoons.

Snark, yep, I mentioned it yesterday. Remember me contacting Babsi for a private conversation last week? I had news of it then but would not mention it in open forum

The official line is for evacuation duties. They do have 2 marine vessels off the coast since about mid last week.

Disgusting. I imagine if we scratched under the crust of some of our other overlords we might find similar piles of lucre.

It is awful, isnt it when you consider the average Egyptian earns less than 2 US dollars per day

I knew that was the official story- this seemed to indicate it might just be a cover story...but for what I fear? Janey would the marines be only from these vessels or would they come from other places as well?

it is hard to think of anyone in government, anywhere in the world who doesn't do very nicely out of it. In the middle of the Ethiopian famine cash sent by aid agencies got funnelled into the regime and they were quite literally driving around the famine areas in Rolls Royces watching people starve! totally true!

my guess, based on the talks that are going on between the US and Egyptian army that this would not be against protesters, but a visit to the Palace to offer Mubarak a ride
