A Bad Situation In Egypt

Photo: Cairo Giza taken in 2009

Pro-Mubarak demnonstrators have turned violent. Many of the peaceful anti-Mubarak demonstrators believe that the violence has been instigated by the regime. Egypt is a powder keg. Obama may have told Mubarak to step down but Mubarak isn't listening. World leaders should unite in a public call for Mubarak to step down immediately. This would be followed by an interim caretaker government until free elections, monitored by the international community, can take place. Time is short. Something must be done now to avoid either violent repression or a civil war.
