The Egyptian government is afraid of all the mass protests being planned online.

Mobile networks are also down there.

That should not give them the right to "shut off" the internet.

The reason they shut it down is simple. Mass protests were planned for today so the government shut down internet and mobile communication to severely disrupt the protesters ability to act together. It is a means to prevent an organized otherthrow attempt and a means should they face an overthrow attempt they can quickly put it down.

That should not give them the right to "shut off" the internet.


I can almost guarantee if we had an uprising such as this in the United States which was both attempting to scare/change the government and turning violent we would see similar measures. One of the common tactics to win military engagements is to disrupt the oppositions communications then take them down in their confusion.

Damn....that would be scary. All the farmville zombies walking outside on their atrophied legs trying to hurl sticks at the police. All the FPS players taking their skillz to the street.

Exactly. The US has been trying to formalize a kill switch that could disable the internet in the US. Of course, they could absolutely do that already, they just want to make it official.

The reason they shut it down is simple. Mass protests were planned for today so the government shut down internet and mobile communication to severely disrupt the protesters ability to act together. It is a means to prevent an organized otherthrow attempt and a means should they face an overthrow attempt they can quickly put it down.

One of the common tactics to win military engagements is to disrupt the oppositions communications then take them down in their confusion.

The reason is obvious enough. That still doesn't justify what they are doing. The reason they are protesting is because they don't like how the government is running, so they continue to do stuff the protesters will disprove of. It could very well just strengthen their cause.

I can definitely guarantee the US government would do the same.

I am not saying I agree with the shutdown but that what the people in power are using is a valid technique to try and stay in power.

They've had the same president for 30 years. He has just recently dismissed the current government and will be appointing a new one today, but he will stay in power. So chances are the protests will continue until he is removed.
