Americans who are in Egypt shouldn't be there in the first place. Playing tourist is all fun and games until someone hits you over the head with a club. UW Milwaukee sent students to Egypt and now they are in danger. Couldn't someone have thought about this type of problem in advance? Non-democratic countries can dissolve at any time due to their inherent instability. This situation is magnified by new Internet social networking capabilities. Riots caused by the Internet have even happened in Wauwatosa's Mayfair Mall on a smaller scale so it is only reasonable to expect bigger riots in countries that really have something to complain about..
