Disturbing video, I first saw it yesterday, I kept thinking about the situtation in Egypt all night.
Things are not always black an white though, I have friends who are serving in the Egyptian army, and were part of the troops that went into Tahrir
square after Mubarak stepped down. They would never ever participate in any of this (and have never been ordered to do so). The problem is, that the
army is a BIG organisation, being eaten by corruption, and the different factions of the army operate differently. This here, is the riot squad, which
is the scum of the egyptian military (full of uneducated animals that commit these atrocities, whether ordered to do so or not).
Also the protesters are not always 100% good, like the idiots who set the historic library on fire... etc.
So instead of having the protesters vs army situation (which the corrupt factions really WANT, because the people lose in this case), we should be
having good military vs corrupt military, and good protesters vs bad protesters and revolution hijackers.
In fact, I don't trust any "side" in Egypt right now, all options are currently bad, I only trust the good people, who are the victims here.
