Telling me to seriously "consider" leaving - however, telling me not to go into areas with protests, avoid crowds, not go out in places far from my house, strictly adhere to the curfew. Got a emergency number to call if any trouble!


Things are getting only dodgy for me since Sillyman started the xenophobia. He said foreigners belittle Egypt and are cause for the current unrests. Thanks MAN for making my life here difficult and downright dangerous - what a jerk. And that a country that NEEDS foreigners. Yet it's the protesters fault for any economic difficulties now - boy he's a real cupcake this guy isn't he?

Please stay safe Babsi!

Debkafile's military sources report that the American force consists of the USS Kearsarge Expeditionary Strike Group of six warships. Helicopters on some of their decks are there to carry and drop the 2,200 marines of the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit which has been bolstered by two special operations battalions.


funnily enough for Debka, who are usually about as reliable as the weather, that is absolutely correct. I was aware of that last week, but shared it with very few people because I believe publishing info like that puts troops in harms way. However, as they have now told the world, I can confirm it. This is why I have made cryptic allusions to special forces being used in some posts. I was careful who I shared this with. Babsi can confirm.

So, yes Debka has it right for once, but I am dismayed that they would publish the info

this is valid. It is constantly on the wires and seems to be the biggest news of the day. In fact, this may end up being hugely significant. As industry grinds to a halt the pressure on Mubarak grows exponentially.

I am seeing everything on the wires, from people in Suez, to tailors in Cairo, to furniture makers! The whole spectrum of commerce is rapidly getting sucked in.

9:00 am: Tens of thousands of workers across Egypt have gone on strike and joined the protests, giving new energy to the anti-Mubarak movement. Protests have spread to many cities, including Egypt’s vast south, and “6,000 workers at five service companies owned by the Suez Canal Authority” have walked off the job, according to the New York Times.
