I think we should be watching the situation in Egypt very closely.
A few things:
A victory by those rallying against the government could set an example for the rest of the world, for any other group tired of its leaders.
Other governments are watching, too, and thus trying to prepare themselves should an uprising occur in their own countries. In the case of the United States, I believe the preventative measure has been nicknamed the Kill Switch.
I’m not one to create something out of nothing, but that’s an awfully nice way to freak everyone out, no?
