The protest in Egypt stated because of a street vendor in Egypt set himself on fire in protest of Egypt’s corrupt government. This resulted in many people taking the streets and protesting unemployment, police brutality, high food prices and repressive governments. The protestors have burned many police cars and President Mubarak's National Democratic Party headquarters. This is leaving Egypt in a state of turmoil and destruction. As days pass the United States is beginning to become more worried about the crisis at hand. The protestors and tired of the corrupt government in Egypt and I can’t blame them. Egyptian people want President Mubarak to resign after thirty years in power over the government and they are willing to do anything possible to make sure this happens.
I believe that the Egyptian people deserve and fair leader that isn’t corrupt. But I also think that the Egyptian people aren’t doing it in the right way by rioting and hurting innocent people in the process. I believe that the United States should get more involved in this matter to insure that a good leader is put in place so this rioting seizes to exist any longer. To many innocent lives have already been taken and it is time to do something about it. If this doesn’t happen soon many more people will be injured or killed. I think that this has gone on long enough and it is time for us to step up and help the Egyptian people.
