They are brave indeed, thanks for bringing this to light.
I hope change can truly happen for their benefit.
The motorcycles amazing going in and out of the battle zone on Mohamed Mahmoud carrying away injured & suffocated protesters

It's true that Americans paid for those tear gas shells. Check out this picture of a shell used by the Egyptian police made in USA:
Americans unknowingly pay money that contributes in the oppression and destruction of other nations. How sad.
What? American's paid for the gas shells? It says MADE IN THE USA.
Not MADE IN THE USA AND PAID FOR BY THE USA.
In case you're too slow to realize it, the Egyptian Military is the one who "payed" for it.
reports of tear gas being fired from AUC campus on Tahrir, university officials have started investigating
i think i am missing part of my ear, should i cut the rest off and pull a #vangogh ?

i think i have been everywhere in downtown cairo as of last night. #probablynotdoe

i never wanted to come here if i didnt know it was going to be ok

i just dont want to feel anymore
maybe a trip to tahrir today... never seen a police van burning
6 hours at tahrir, enough tear gas for tonight

I have alot of sympathy for the Egyptian people whom have 'taken action' initially against all the odds to create their own democracey , which those '''still in power''' are reluctant to give up.....
I genuinely think that nobody really knows what to do or how to move forward there and i fear that the Muslim brotherhood will eventually turn Egypt into a Muslim state, albiet a muslim 'lite' state........
In doing this the balance of powers and strategies in the middle east will change and will become a threat / risk to the pretty little western world most of us enjoy without realising its fragility....
One other observation is that the Egyptian Flag reminds me of the German flag in the 30's and 40's when a comedic moustache took power and gave rise to a kind of Nationalism we do not want to see again...... I hope history doesn't kind of repeat itself once again......
Then the reporter said that people are being sniped by hidden anonymous snipers in Tahrir square; three dead and counting.Isn't this the part where the Western World declares these crimes against humanity and we move in to help overthrow the Government? Oh my bad, in this case we have chosen to help their Government and provide their police force with more weaponry.
The police changed the substance they're using in their tear gas, and used a 500 times more toxic component that does much more than tears
It also killed many people, many of them children.

Friedrich Nietzsche summed it up pretty well with the master-slave morality. You can choose to be a slave; passive, timid, cynical, and kind or you can be a master; proud, strong, noble, courageous, and open-minded. The Egyptians have perhaps shaken the world without any of us feeling the rattling – for now.
You have proved that lying deep down inside the Egyptian people is the spirit of the men and women who can live in inhospitable climates, who can survive thousands of years of battles and still come out strong. This spirit of true masculinity, true heroism, will be reborn among the militarized people; those who look death in the eyes without blinking or looking away. When men reach this point the entire society can be turned on its head and those who are attempting to stand in their way shall be crushed mercilessly.
May Allah be on your side in this struggle.
