If it were Alex Jones, people on here would be kissing up to him at every chance.

Remember people, birds of a feather flock together. I wouldn't be surprised if 'ol Alex has some strings that lead back to the CIA as well.

It may look like that on TV, but people are dying there. There are women and children among the pro-democracy protesters. They are being stoned and injured, firebombed, having concrete blocks, furniture and satellite dishes dropped on them from buildings above by thugs who came there expressly to attack them and suppress the demonstration. Its no joke.

And Mubarak wont last until September. This is a full on revolution, it won't die down.

Well, eventually people will get tired and hungry.
They will calm down and wait until September.

The radicals with an agenda will raise hell and demand all sorts of things.
It looks like a play very similar to what George Soros would orchestrate.
Act I, Act II, Act III.....intermission....Act IV and then finally ........The Goal.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
The truth is that the overwhelming majority of the population got what they wanted.
A different leader will be in charge in September.
It may look a lot like Iraq. Chaos but then order.

A PARTNERSHIP FOR PROSPERITY
The U.S. Government through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has made significant contributions over the past 30 years to help improve the quality of life of all Egyptians. Nationwide programs in health, education, trade facilitation, small and micro-enterprise, tourism, and infrastructure development have benefited Egyptians acrosscountry, especially those in under-served areas. US economic assistance to Egypt through the United States Agency for International Development has totaled more than $28.6 billion since 1975.


28.6 billion given to them since 1975.

As soon as Cooper and his two sidekicks started in with the "Rent a mob" rhetoric last night I knew the "Rent a mob rhetoric" was simply pure Intelligence Community propaganda. Did you see their shifty little eyes darting off camera, constantly checking with their "producers/handlers" to make sure they were "on topic" - i.e. sending the "right" message to us poor, blind sheeple...

Anybody involved with giving any other country financial aid at this time,given the dire straits our country is in,the inabillty to pay our own debts as a country,should be terminated immediately.All foreign aid needs to be stopped indefinitely.A general population vote needs to be stablished on foreign aid immediately.

Kind of funny that CNN hasn't said a word about this all day and doesn't even have it on their website. You know damn well if one of their top Newsboys got hurt, they wouldn't shut up about it for days.
Not only that, but Fox News would have a field day with that story. Yet....nothing. I call bogus.

They talked about it a number of times today. They were on the phone with Cooper in the last hour.

My guess is ats members will be more supportive of Alex Jones than AC.


IDK I think AC is a decent guy and here he is again risking his safety for a job that he doesn't need. My opinion is at some level he genuinely cares about getting the "truth" out. Do I think he deserves my 100% trust, no but he does try to maintain a level of integrity. Let's face it he doesn't need to be in any of these places, he's been loaded from birth, this is his choice.

And they couldn't finish him off?

That mob sucks, no wonder Mubarek is still in power.

Riots just aren't what they used to be.

Head over to Murder Row in New Orleans. Wait til the rival gangs in the two housing projects go at one another one night, and grab your camcorder and get between them and try to talk. Tell me how that works out, and then tell me if Anderson Cooper is justified in calling these people out of control!


That is quite ironic. I was thinking the same thing when I found out what all the fuss was about. I mean he should call it like it is rather than talk about what a bunch of savages that are surrounding him.

"Folks, I am in the middle of a possible revolution. I am taking a great risk out here and can understand how a lawless territory can not go as planned. I'll get back to you".

I lived in New Orleans for 10 years before Katrina. I know an out of control mob, years before the storm, and am damn lucky to be alive.

They don't bitch slap, chant and let you leave with your belongings. He was around a non hostile group.

My point is, it had to be staged. Because CNN hasn't made a single mention of it all day today. Thats how CNN downplays a scripted "incident". They just don't mention it. If it weren't staged, you bet CNN would be all over this and it would be a constant headline.

"The radicals with an agenda" ?

What?!!

Por favor!

Are you seriously that indoctrinated?

This is a popular public uprising by the people of Egypt from all walks of life WHO WANT DEMOCRACY and their FREEDOM!

They are fighting against Mubarak's authoritarian dictatorship which btw is sponsored by the US!



"The radicals with an agenda will raise hell and demand all sorts of things"


Yeah! the people of Egypt will demand the end of the dictatorship AND they want their freaking human rights and democracy!

Be that as it may, I figured I'd post it since people are too focused on Cooper being attacked for who he is and his personal life rather than the possibility that the crowds are sporadically attacking whoever they believe is more supportive of their opposing view.

Lets not allow personal feeling on the guy to cloud judgment, especially since Alex Crawford was also attacked and she has been a respected Middle East correspondent for a number of years.

Honestly I don't think Cooper 'is all there' during his Hurrican Katrina escapades he and his crew actually came up on a stranded dog, perched on a little make shift island of wood and boxes he had found to get up out of the flood waters.

Cooper surmized he would be thirsty, and while sadly lamenting he could do nothing to help the dog but to give it some fresh non-poluted water he puts a couple bottles of bottle water on the platform with the dog, with the twist tops still securely on, like the dog is going to untwist the tops later and drink them.

With friends like Anderson who needs enemies?
