CAIRO (AP) - Egyptian soldiers and police set fire to protest tents in Cairo's Tahrir Square and fired tear gas and rubber bullets in a major assault Sunday to drive out thousands demanding that the military rulers quickly transfer power to a civilian government. At least 11 protesters were killed and hundreds were injured.
It was the second day of clashes marking a sharp escalation of tensions on Egypt's streets a week before the first elections since the ouster of longtime authoritarian leader Hosni Mubarak in February. The military took over the country, promising a swift transition to civilian rule. But the pro-democracy protesters who led the uprising have grown increasingly angry with the ruling generals, and suspect they are trying to cling to power even after an elected parliament is seated and a new president is voted in.
Street battles continued throughout the day and long into the night, spreading to side streets and sending a wave of injuries to makeshift clinics on the streets.

This is how you handle protestors.
American police, take notice.
That’s what cops around the world should be doing. Take all the Occupy commies stupid tents, weapons, communist literature and assorted paraphenalia and burn them.
Arab Spring. Right.
Note to Occupy/Democratic Reform protesters: Be aware that you are Useful Idiots that are no longer useful, we have now consolidated power.
Signed, The Muslim Brotherhood.
Better yet, American OWS take notice.
According to the state run MSM, getting pepper sprayed is a LOT worse than getting killed. Pepper spray is “torture”.

This is the correct way to deal with occutards. They are a health hazard and bring fleas, lice, scabies and filth wherever they go. Burning out their lair is the best way to handle things.

What this article frames as a conflict between the Army and pro-democracy Egyptians is actually a conflict between the Army and the Muslim Brotherhood. Arab Spring in Egypt will likely lead to military domination, probably better for us than Islamist domination. But given our governments "support" for Mubarak, I'll doubt they'll trust us as far as they can spit, though they'll cash our checks. Maybe another Pakistan.
Excellent, an absolute truth of socialism/communism and Islam.
Did Egypt already have their “Arab Spring”? I thought that all the uprisings were so popular with the people and now things were jim dandy./SAR
They could have been more effective if they used flame throwers.
Do you think many tourists are witnessing this “arab spring” occurring in Egypt? I wonder how that’s effecting their economy and future prospects? It is a shame.
We waged war on commies in Korea, Vietnam and other places in the world but we grant them constitutional protection at home.
“Take all the Occupy commies stupid tents, weapons, communist literature and assorted paraphanalia and burn them.”
Better yet, Take all the OCCUPY COMMIES, stupid tents, weapons, communist literature and assorted paraphanalia and burn them.
We would have MUCH better (PERMANENT!) results if there was a COMMA AFTER COMMIES! LOL
Proof, once again that, as Zero told us, Mubarak is causing all this trouble.
What they will scratch their heads about is why we are supporting the Muslim Brotherhood, who has sworn enmity against us.
