Egypt: Birth of a new nation?
Words cannot begin to capture how momentous the Egyptian uprising is. Are you watching? Do you see the crowds in Tahrir Square? Listen to the chants and the cheers. To hear that roiling roar of freedom emanating from Tahrir Square ought to stir your heart -- and heighten the sense of panic already gripping many Arab leaders in the Middle East. Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak isn't gone -- yet. But what we're seeing is a people's revolution in a tightly controlled country that is a beacon of the Arab world with the not-so-subtle backing of the military. As Rachel Maddow just said on MSNBC, "This is a heart-in-the-throat moment."
