    Watching the news and seeing that they are cracking down on news reporters. I predict things are gonna get real bloody here soon. I'll bet you dollars to donuts the Egyptian gov is gonna blame it on the protester too.

Maybe they are people that have gay family members and are concerned that if Egypt goes fundamentalist they will be executed. Who the hell do you KNOW??? What makes their cause any less valid than the others? How are they any less a part of this 'democratic process'???

    you are correct, i am repeating what i've heard on tv. then, of course, there's THIS:

    Protesters accuse the regime and the ruling party of organizing a force of paid thugs and police in civilian clothes to attack them Wednesday afternoon, sparking the violence that raged until Thursday night.

    The prime minister apologized for Wednesday's assault and acknowledged it may have been organized, though he said he didn't know by whom. Suleiman promised Mubarak's son Gamal would not run in presidential elections in September. Before the protests, Mubarak was widely expected to try to pass his power to his son in a hereditary succession, despite significant public opposition.

    I dont doubt the Mubarek govt is ingaging in some counter and subterfuge. They were 'forced' just like union members were 'forced' to attend democrat rallies. BFD. Do you really want to sit there and pretend the opposition side isnt pulling the same crap?

    Right...so...one side 'good'...the other side 'bad'....

    Personally...I hope they get exactly what they want. I just dont think what they get is what they expect they are going to get. But...when it happens...IF heaven forbid it does happen...I want all the liberals out there to FULLY embrace the same kind of government the Iranians have. And OWN it. Be HAPPY about it.

    Never said the "opposition side isn't pulling the same crap" just replying to the original post that said "there is no way you could know that" when in fact it could be known and already was known.

    One difference - this was a government forcing a communication company to send messages without attribution. That doesn't sit well with me in the least. (I am ssuming you read more than just the link headline, then again you know what they say about assuming)

    Did you read the article, before you posted it? I tend to think, uh, no! Especially, since it's talking about something totally different. I know, there's thing with reality that some folks have.
