Random Hate: Unrest in Egypt

The situation in Egypt has erupted into chaos. There seems to be a lot of fear mongering going on, and American media agencies are worried about their own interests, and have put the same old American spin on the situation. Completely ignore the bullshit cable MSM in the United States. You want the real scoop?

Al Jazeera English Live Stream

I have been watching and listening for days now, and I have to say that Al Jazeera really has it right.
The reporters are actually trying to get clear concise data on who is doing what down there.

The main focus right now is Cairo. Shit is CRAZY right now in Tahrir Square.

The march of millions was originally a peaceful march and protest. It seems that “pro-mubarak” protesters sparked violence by marching on the square and attacking the peaceful protesters.

Well surprise, surprise, the “pro-mubarak” protesters are undercover police intentionally sent to spark unrest and violence. It seems they’ve succeeded.

The Egyptian Army has sided with the people and have said the people’s demands are legitimate and just.
The army has been trying to quell the unrest and stop the bloodshed. I salute them, it’s not easy to get between two warring factions and walk away unhurt. They are trying to get those sparking the violence to leave.

I wish the anti-mubarak protesters luck. I hope the bloodshed ends and reform begins. Egypt, make the world proud. Make the warmongers fear you. The power is always with the people, even if they don’t realize it.

EDIT

It seems I left out some information in my haste last night.
The Mubarak government shut down ALL mobile phone and internet service in Egypt a few days ago.
The internet has been steadily returning in Egypt, thankfully, and the people are able to communicate with the outside world again. Huzzah!

However, this sent a chill down my spine…

Mobile phone firm Vodafone has accused the Egyptian authorities of using its network to send unattributed text messages supporting the government.

This is sickening propaganda and a slap in the face. Hopefully Vodafone fights back.
