Insanity in the streets of CairoTopics: Middle East News and Perspectives
Just now at Fox News, supporters of President Mubarak and anti-government demonstrators clash in the city and molotov cocktails have reportedly sparked a fire at the famed Egyptian National Museum In Cairo in Cairo. I've heard that the King Tut treasures are either threatened or have been burned.
Horses, camels, rocks, knives, swords, molotovs ... all are involved in the Cairo thugfest:
Who are these asinine, mindless bastards who are so insensitive to the destruction of irreplaceable antiquities that date back thousands of years? I've visited this museum (can be seen from the Nile Hilton) many times ... and was all the more fascinated with each visit. How people can so insensitively and carelessly destroy that which cannot possibly be replaced is beyond me.
RussiaToday -- February 02, 2011 -- A group of pro-government supporters riding horses and camels has charged anti-Mubarak protesters. It comes as hundreds of pro-government supporters and protesters demanding the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak clashed in Cairo's main square on Wednesday. Mubarak supporters break through a human chain of anti-government protesters trying to defend those gathered in Tahrir Square. They tore down banners denouncing the president and fistfights broke out as they advanced across the massive square in the heart of the capital.Camels & horses storm into Tahrir Square as protesters clash in Cairo
