CAIRO — As Egypt’s uprising entered its 17th day on Thursday, bolstered by labor strikes and worker protests across the country, a senior official in President Hosni Mubarak’s embattled government was quoted as saying the army would “intervene to control the country” if it fell into chaos.

Suez Canal eyed by Hezbollah, Muslim Brotherhood for shutdown

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

http://www.examiner.com/christianity-politics-in-national/suez-canal-eyed-by-hezbollah-muslim-brotherhood-for-shutdown

that is very true

That story is about as credible as Obama giving the Saudi king a heart attack. lol!

Can we here what's happening with the new revolutionary govt in Sanai? Maybe they'll nationalize the canal with the Hezbollah escapees and install the dead king as monarch for eternity. (GLP humor)

But seriously, any news from Sanai?

Is everybody who goes on strike staying on strike until Mubarak is gone? Egypt will be economically crippled if that were the case and this drags on for more then a few days.

Strikes are the most powerful weapon the people have, Egypt's wealth from their labor keeps the regime alive.

the regime still has an alternative to a military crackdown that might incite a coup. It can reignite terror in the streets with the secret civil part of its rule, the Interior Ministry. After a few weeks of random mass night killings be snipers and "thugs" and the propagandizing the resulting fear, the soldier part of the regime could again be seen as savior, or simply as the less threatening alternative.

Suleiman alluded to that strategy:
He warned of chaos if the situation continued, speaking of "the dark bats of the night emerging to terrorise the people."

In Tanta, a man went to renew his license, he slipped the officer a 10. The officer returned it "This is the past, we r cleaning #Egypt now"

Let's hope they're cleaning house! Babsi will like that Tweet.

The people have really behaved so well and it is good to hear that they realize some of the old habits/customs are injurious to the people of Egypt. That is good to hear Group Hug

12:00pm The newly appointed Culture Minister, Gaber Asfour, has quit. His family say it's due to health reasons but Egypt's main daily newspaper al-Ahram says Asfour, who's also a writer, was criticised by his literary colleagues for taking the post.

He was the only new face in the new cabinet.

1:04pm There are lots of jokes and funny banners circulating, both in Tahrir Square and on the internet - this picture of scuba divers is a good example - the signs says: "Leave before we run out of air".

The picture is on this link and at the moment is the 2nd photo down.

Janey can you have confirmation if the King of Saudi Arabia is really dead?

It seems he had an heart attack...

1:12pm About 3,000 lawyers have marched from the lawyers syndicate in downtown Cairo to Abedeen Palace, a historic palace, and one of the official residences of the president. They are heading to Tahrir Square to join protestors there.

When Janey checked earlier there was no confirmation this Lolita and the website that is claiming this is not always accurate.
