Hohoho, stay the fuck away from Fox News then. They've been jumping between "Look at how well the Bush Doctrine worked! Look!" and "Egypt is ready for democracy because the Egyptians might elect someone we don't like". They've also been ramping up the fear factor about the Muslim Brotherhood - a non-violent, democratic, religious party (Which means they're less extreme than the Republicans. They're probably more like one of the many religious parties in Europe.) But you know: Muslims!

It's also all Obama's fault. He should have "stopped it".

But I don't think Fox News can spin this too hard. It's hard to demonize a bunch of people peacefully protesting in a square and hugging soldiers. Though then again, if you watch Fox News, you really don't need much convincing.

It's been confirmed the police is behind the pro-Mubarak crowd that is armed with knives, batons, tear gas etc. and attacking/provoking the peaceful demonstrators after being conspicuously absent from the streets since the early days of the protests.

It's also highly suspected that they are behind the mass jail breaks , releasing criminals on to the streets.

Classy, Mubarak. Real classy. The camels and horses were such a pharaorgasmic touch.

On the topic of terminology, I absolutely hate the way some media groups are using the word 'contagion' to describe what's happening in the Middle East, as if this movement is a spreading disease that must be quashed.

What does that remind me of? AH YES

He compares humanity to a virus, a disease organism that would replicate uncontrollably and eventually destroy their environment were it not for the machine intelligences keeping them in check.


That's really funny, cuz what I see is the exact opposite: the spreading of a vaccine.

On a side note, I was just having a pretty lengthy discussion last week about how these great visionary people come up with seemingly wonderful ideas...and then they get killed and their ideas get perverted and warped by greedy and ambitious successors out for personal gain. Jesus wanted a love hippy fest... then the Romans got ahold of the religion and treated it like a mute alter boy... Muhammed tried to say "Hey guys, you're doing it wrong! Let me put it to you another way..." then the Rashidun (righteously enlightened caliphs) went around spread Arab culture as if it were doctrine (Fuck you Persian infidels and all you're fancy hi-fallutin' learnin and sciences and zeroes, you're gonna worship God our way and like it!)... Lenin took Marx's ideas and made them seem doable...but then old Josef "Genocide" Stalin bumped Trotsky off the wagon and grabbed hold of the reign...

Lenin wasn't all that great.

I know I have nothing to fear, that's why I live in one of the most remote places on the planet. The rest of you muppets are going down.!!1

In all seriousness though, the plight of the ME is probably one of the most important events in modern time. I for one hope we are witnessing a new renaissance in terms of an enlightenment for the millions of people who have been forced by despotic states to live in less than admirable ways.

The alternative does not bare thinking about.

I heard different about the Umayyads, but it's not exactly like they rolled out the welcome wagon for Zoroastrians either.
