The PRO-GOV demonstrators are ALL policemen so they are just “fake” hired thugs.
The ANTI-GOV demonstrators are ALL freedom loving citizens.
Brian Williams just told me so.
Now back to regular FR programing.

Thinning the heard. Let’s just hope it’s the dumb people killing dumb people.
Apparently Anderson Cooper was assaulted . No it wasn’t the Nazi Teabaggers it was the peace loving Muslims...

1534: BBC world affairs editor John Simpson, in Tahrir Square, says: “I am among a group of Mubarak supporters. They have been preparing all sorts of weapons - pulling down iron railings, breaking up paving stones - and using them against anti-government protesters. There has been a kind of counter-attack by the pro-Mubarak groups, who are determined to force the remaining protesters out of the square. The soldiers are right here, sitting on their tanks, looking on and occasionally taking shelter, but are not trying to intervene. People know the army is not going to fire on either side, so their presence is not intimidating. The Mubarak supporters are forcing their way into the square through all the main entrances, and trying to force out the protesters gathered there.”
1524: Ibrahim Zadran, co-ordinator of the opposition National Association for Change and an ally of Mohamed ElBaradei, tells the BBC: “We are asking the army to defend us. It’s their job to do that. Today, 15 people were shot in Tahrir Square by government supporters using live ammunition. We are a peaceful group looking for justice and democracy. Nothing else.”
1523: I R in Cairo writes: “I just came back from Tahrir Square, supporting Mubarak to continue his term. I am not an NDP member, never voted and never participated in a demonstration before last week. Ninety per cent of our demands have been met. Enough demonstrations. We need a smooth transition of power.”
