Egypt muted the revolution, but we’re not blind, are we?

Internet is down. Electricity is down. Phones are down.

There is one thing I don’t understand about regimes that panic such as Moubarak’s did: when you have a social movement like this, and the whole media around the world has reported on it already, you turn off all channels of communication what do you expect people to do? Just forget about it?
How does that work in helping the regime? You already arrested 1000 people, do you actually believe that you’re gonna arrest the next 1000 without the world knowing about it? Seriously?
