    This was one of the many chants I saw and heard the young people (girls and boys, women and men) sing/shout in Tahrir Square last week, where I spent a few exciting days. The revolution is powered by the Egypt's young generation and it is an amazing thing to behold. Christains and Moslems stand as one in spite of Mubarak trying for years to incite one against eachother in order to justify himself. Not only want the people get rid of the whole Mubarak tainted government, they want to get rid of the whole Mubarak tainted SYSTEM, like Mubaraks croniies who were in charge at the universities and other places of higher learning. People want to get rid of the Emergency Laws too, a new Constitution, a new Parliament and a civilian government.. The Army right now is being dragged along under popular pressure. Let's face it, although the army is popular with the Egyptian masses, because it is an army of conscripts, the army leadership itself is also very much tainted by the Mubarak years. Eventually it will have to make way for a civilian government, president and parliament, that together will run a new and democratic Egypt.
