Egyptian Protests May Be Largest in Human History, Ignored!; Photos

Our interventionist foreign policy is the gift that keeps on giving. Is there any Middle Eastern country that we haven’t screwed up yet? Oh yeah – Iran. Give Obama and McCain time. That will be the clusterfuck that destroys the world.
15 Photos From the Tahrir Square Protests You’ll Never See In Legacy Media.
Curiously, a massive wave of anti-Obama sentiment in Egypt has been utterly ignored by vintage media, even though the protests may be the largest in all of human history.

Big protest against illegitimate governments prove worthless.

Except, millions know that million know that the tyranny of government is excessive if there is any.

Free includes debt-free!


bump for news coverage


You state:

"Is there any Middle Eastern country that we haven’t screwed up yet? Oh yeah – Iran."

Really??? Are you serious?!?!?

You probably want to hit the books & research more on Abadan oil crisis, Operation Ajax & Iran-Iraq war.

Immoral funding of Military Industrial Complex by Federal Reserve and US taxation system must stop!!!! End illegal/unconstitutional wars! Preserve US currency!

That's what I thought too

Read how the 53 ousting of democratically elected leader Mohammad Mosaddegh by the CIA, and the reinstatement of the shaw of Iran, for foreign oil interests, eventually lead to the 79 embassy hostage situation.

Iran has been messed with for a long time!

"People's anti-aircraft"

They're trying to temporarily blind the helicopter pilot and crew, to make it difficult for them to observe or attack the protesters, on the assumption that it may be part of the regime's forces.

There was a picture up yesterday of a helicopter being painted by at more than a dozen laser pointers.

Even ordinary green laser pointers tend to shut down night vision - both obscuring it with after-images and constricting the iris. There are also some powerful ones - capable of damaging the retina before the blink reflex operates - on the market. The protesters getting their hands on some and using them in this way is a brilliant tactic - no pun intended.

Note that shooting a laser pointer at an aircraft is a major offense in the US and the law is strongly enforced. Point a laser pointer at a plane or helicopter here and you're likely to become the target of an immediate aerial manhunt and prosecution. Blinding pilots currently in control of an aircraft - especially helicopters, which will crash if not intelligently controlled every minute - is no joke.

"Obama’s Economists: ‘Stimulus’ Has Cost $278,000 per Job."

That means: For each job "created or saved" about five were destroyed.

The MSM need to go back to 1st grade

to learn how to count higher than 10,000.

I believe in the freedom to be what we choose to be.


are all the green lasers for???

a search away..

apparently it's to annoy and frustrate the pilot.

This is a great demonstration

This is a great demonstration of the power of the people. TPTB hate seeing things like this and wish the NSA was effective in Egypt as it is in America.

reading comments at link site

busted a gut laughing at
..... AL-CIA-duh .....

It was on CNBC today

The only time I listened though they talked about how it would affect the price of oil (ugh!)

That 20 million have been protesting for 3 days

and only 4-6 (depends on report) have died shows that this protest is for the most part non violent --AMAZING!

It would probably

be hard to have any event that big be that safe.

Wow!!! There are no coincidences

ha! I didn't know Egypt's colors were ALSO red, white and blue! ;)

Hey Jefferson: did Fishy make a new name? I never see her posts anymore.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

looks like their revolution may hit on the fourth, too. B-)

Too bad the millions of protesters are tweaked off at the US, or at least Obama and crew.

With Obama, there are no coincidences at this late date.

I believe it. Thanks, Michael.

To our brothers and sisters in Egypt -

More government is not the answer. You have a unique opportunity to denounce governance altogether and show the world that civil people do not need a government to hold their hands. You are one of the most ancient peoples on Earth. The human species began in Africa. Hopefully, voluntary society can begin its evolution there as well.

Here in America, we are trying to bath the tyranny in sunlight, so as to disinfect us of the parasites at the top of the power structure in our country. I hope that you will not establish another government. When the government falls, take its weapons for yourselves and vow to fight anyone that may mess with you to the bitter end. Embrace this opportunity to claim your liberty.

True American patriots wish you the best. We do not condone the US central government's intervention into your affairs. We do not support your dictator any more than we support our tyrannical regime.

Three days into the biggest story...

in the history of the world and our lame, mass street media have yet to pick up on it. Amazing, how they ignore the truth of the neo-Nazis who are trying yet again to rule the world.

Rockefeller knows it...Brzezinski knows it...Kissinger knows it.
Clintons, bush's, Obama's, they all know it!

How long can they ignore it until they are in Marie Antoinette's world? Hitler's world?

Whether it be Egypt, Britain, or America, We, the people will have their heads.

The ticking clock on Morsi, about one day left to go.

The ticking clock on Morsi:

With Less Than A Day Left, Mursi Demands Withdrawal Of Ultimatum; Mubarak Says Mursi Should Step Down
When news hit 30 minutes before the market close that the Egyptian president would have a joint statement with the local military, some saw this was a good sign that there may finally be a compromise forming. Couldn't be further from the truth. As Reuters reports, Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi called on the armed forces on Tuesday to withdraw an ultimatum for him to share power with his political opponents and said he would not be dictated to. "President Mohamed Mursi asserts his grasp on constitutional legitimacy and rejects any attempt to deviate from it, and calls on the armed forces to withdraw their warning and refuses to be dictated to internally or externally," a tweet on the official Twitter feed of the Egyptian presidency said. A military source said the armed forces had seen Mursi's statement and would issue a response to it.

Why are the signs in English you might ask?

"Oh, sorry, we are not done with Egypt yet!"



I have been to Egypt and

I have been to Egypt and quite a few people know how to speak english there. They are actually quite friendly to Americans and I met a bunch of cool people. They are smart too and know that with the internet at least some Americans will see them.

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

One of our tech company's outsourced teams is in Cairo. Amazingly they've been able to get considerable work done during the protests (though they warned us about last Friday that there "might be some disruptions this week".)

Do you think the CIA is that smart to come up w/these signs?

These slogans are pretty good, too good for likes of the CIA. Also, I don't think that a CIA operative would last very long in a country like Egypt.

Just one question....

Why are the signs in English? Makes me wonder what is going on there.

I think that they want international exposure.

More people know English than Arabic. Plus, I believe that they are trying to communicate specifically with the People of America, who have indirectly screwed around with their country for the last 50 years by turning a blind eye.

Not just a blind eye

Politicians have had the gall to seize productive people's money in order to send over to an Egyptian dictatorship.

Seized productive wealth has been used to prop up tyranny.
