We had seen several clips of Sudanese youth protesting in support of the youth movement in Syria and now we are seeing the same support from Syrians for Sudan; bloggers arrested in Sudan and is the Egyptian army all that bad?
Syrian Youth Message to Sudanese Youth: we are with you.
"While surfing the net I came across this photo in several Sudanese youth group on Facebook and on other site.
The support of Syrian youth movement to the Sudanese youth movement is growing and I am sensing the increase in solidarity between the two countries against corruption, dictatorship and persecution."

El Wardany was arrested by the NISS “Sudan’s National Sudanese State security” along with blogger and tweep Maha El Senoussy. "
Egypt’s Military: Seizing Power or Extending Transition?
"Recent moves by the military council have put in question their commitment to democracy and the democratic transition. The popularly elected parliament has been dissolved, policing powers have been extended to the army, and an addendum to the constitutional declaration has afforded the council legislative powers, independence from the president, and a substantial role in overseeing the constitution.
These steps have been called by many a ‘soft coup’, and they may well be. It may represent the army’s effort to protect its influence in Egypt no matter the coming president, but especially if it yields to Mohamed Morsy of the Muslim Brotherhood.
There is another way to view these maneuvers, however, which posits the army as the guardian of democracy and the democratic transition.
