Thousands turn out in Cairo's Tahrir Square

Thousands of Egyptians converged on Cairo's Tahrir Square on Friday to demand reforms in a turnout dubbed "correcting the path of the revolution."

Protesters - who gathered in a festive atmosphere - are critical of the performance of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces and the government after President Hosni Mubarak was toppled from power in February.

    The big problem in Egypt today are the leftovers from the Mubarak regime. Meanwhile, the right-wing thugs in Washington are working overtime to keep Egypt in their grip to keep that country from going it's own way!

    @RUFFNUTT, I agree with you on this! Now the sooner the west wake up and realise it has already lost out on the region, the better. Because of defending Israel at all times–in everyway, the west has wasted all her credit over there. Best thing now is for the US/UK to get out of the way of change.

      Sorry folks, I didn't post the above. In fact, as I'm not a hateful Tea Partier myself, I'd never post such a heinous statement like that as my troll did above using my name.
