Coming to a State Near You

Al Jazeera keeps us informed again:

"The Egyptian army has used force to disperse activists gathered in Cairo’s Tahrir Square to demand the removal of Hosni Mubarak loyalists from the interim cabinet.

Egyptian soldiers fired in the air and used batons in the early hours of Saturday to disperse the crowd, the Reuters news agency reported. "

The army of a third world dictator, behaving exactly as Governor Scott Walker has promised to respond to protesters in Wisconsin.  Well, not quite the same:

"The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, the ruling military council, later apologised for the military's response and said the situation "wasn't intentional".

In a statement, the council promised such confrontations would not happen again."

When the Republicans set the military loose on protesters, I wouldn't advise you to hold your breath until the Republicans apologize and promise not to do it again.

That's right- a military junta in the Middle East has more respect for democracy than the Republican party.  America today.
