Riot in Egypt
Recently in English we've been studying about the crisis going on in Egypt. At first, I thought that it was any other protests and a riot going on but later on I saw people injured and violence going on. When I saw in the news the violence in Egypt i was terrified hoping not that to happen in the united states, and i also felt bad for the people living there that don't want to be involved and how they must be feeling. The news started to make me think that the united states is not much of a help instead i feel that they are just sitting there and eating popcorn. I know that many people feel that the people there are creating a riot for no reason and violence also, but you have to understand their needs too, they are not normal of this big of change in their country because they believe it would take away there freedom from doing things that they were used to and the decrease of jibs and etc. After doing this study, i feel that the united states should go there and solve their problem(s) For example, I heard that the united states said that what ever Mubarak wanted it will be that, in fact they will pick whats rights for the people. I'm thinking why would the united states want to help this dude that is “ fed up of being the president of Egypt”
One thing that I know for sure about the crisis in Egypt is that people are not happy and neither is the president Bark Obama because of the violence. Now I've studied my share of U.S.History and this had happened once in china and it was very unsuccessful.I believe that there is going to be nothing to fight over. Personally, it's funny to me how i thought that our generation would not have this very low type of riot and cause such a change that it would get so many important people involved.
I did some research on Egypt. I came across this one article: <For the u.s. in Egypt> This article provided a lot of information and opinions on the crisis going on in Egypt . Some people felt that Egypt were scared of things like decrease of job opportunity's and freedom to occur for example “Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak must go, Mohamed says, but he fears that regardless of the promises, Mubarak will figure out a way to keep his henchmen in power and the brutal legacy of cruelty and torture will continue.” This statement didn't really surprise me all that much, but it did make me feel sad. It made me feel sad because they had a good point to argue and to be against something but seeing all the violence happening make me feel sad and bad for them.
In another source that I looked at was a video of Obama thinking about this http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2011/02/04/egypt-crisis-troops-in-riot-gear-approach-tahrir-square-early-friday/ there was this one statement that made me <nod my head in agreement when obama was reporting. It was “violence is not the answer .This is so true , because look at it now , no change is coming down up on them. They are just getting injured and waiting to die. Obama said violence is not the answer, well instead of saying it changes to stop this and make the the “smart” generation the U.S has to do something,
All of this makes me think that what if it happens here? and live with out electricity, any source of technology and anything.. things wouldn't ever be the same. After thinking this i realise that the Egyptian people are probably thinking the same way . they are not the same and i believe they would ever be now.
