    EGYPT: Military uses force to break up Tahrir Square sit-in

    How's that hope-n-change working for the Egyptians?

    Tanks and riot police swept into Tahrir Square, tearing down tents and chasing away protesters in a dramatic ending to a three-week sit-in by demonstrators who had disrupted traffic in downtown Cairo and exasperated the nation's ruling military council.

    Well the revolution is not over yet...

    Are you saying youd much rather have them be under Mubarak with this sarcastic remark?: "How's that hope-n-change working for the Egyptians?"

    Things are going to worse now, than under Mubarack. Kinda like South Africa when Mandella took over.

    So South Africa was better under a violent segregation? Where people were denied their rights based on skin color?

    Mubarack was terrible... Plain out terrible. The revolution is still going on in Egypt its not over.

    You break it, you buy it
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Dem, he's saying it to get at me.

    As usual he's got his tissues on hand ready to jack off after he makes these rediculously sick comments.

    I just can't believe a person who claims to be black, would say that South Africa was better off as a Whites Only violent regime who's answer to peaceful protest was savage attacks.

    Ever heard of Sharpeville apdst?

    Ever heard of the Soweto Uprisings?

    Is this what you're saying was better?



    Well yes it is apperently.

    Whatever Mandelas roots may have been in politics, South Africa is a thriving capitalist market, and while it does have its problems, and some stupid regulations such as BEE (Black Economic Empowerment) which is affirmative action on steroids and involves ownership issues of companies, we are not a communist nation in any way shape or form.

    You are a complete and utter tool.

    Doesn't change the fact that Mandela is a commie. And issues? oh yeah! Ya'll got issue, alright!

    Nor, does it change the fact that South Africa's government is led by the African National Congress in cooperation with the Congress of South African Trade Unions and the South African Communist Party.

    I rest my case.
