It seems the march has been a success. The Egyptian people has had the power to convoke more than a million people. No doubt this is an unquestionable success. The aptitude of Egyptian army has been a very significant key for success and may mean the government's failure.

When asked about the Eygptian people's revolt against the government, most people say the protestors have the momentum to overthrown their president. But many other people regard this action as an useless movement. I personally think no one can deny the power from citizens, especially when the army take their side with them.
If possible, I hope moderator can point out any faults in my post. Thanks!

With the latest US claim of approval of the revolution, the Egyptians almost brought forward the win.

According to the latest report, US government tends to preserve president Hosni Mubarak for several months. Obviously, the president refuses to step down from his position. Anyway, I take off my hat to Egyptians people.

The Egyptian people's revolt against their dictator have caused wide public concern over the recent weeks. The protest movement doesn't seem to decline in a short time,especially when a hero appears in Tahrir square. In order to win self-esteem, it remind me that someone said : " We shall fight on the hills.
We shall fight in the streets.
We shall fight blood and sweat and tears."

egypt is a very wealthy country yet 80% of egyptians live in utter poverty
egypt is a republic country yet hosni glued himself in the presidential chair for about 30 years.
hosni the dictator threatens his people to be buried underground if they just think negatively about him. no problem in torturing, killing and abusing the victims just for being suspects without evidence.
i wish the egyptians put him and his party in the underground jails that he built to punish those who opposes him by even a word.

Thanks to tunisians, they fought for their freedom, and triggered the revolts in arab world.

The move against the dictators gains steam when the president claim that he will stay the position until September.
Now the problem is on which side the army will take?
NO one can deny the basic fact that the army play a crucial role.
At the same time, US government attitude have a mighty influence on the situation.
