Egyptian Revolution Going Nowhere Fast

    “Liberal protesters in Egypt marched into a nightmare; gangs of “pro-stability” thugs from poor neighborhoods attacked the latest march.”

    When they feel threatened the propertied elites have always been able to hire sociopathic goons to do their dirty work. It happened here in the United States too. My father, who was a labor-union organizer in the 1930’s, used to tell stories of goons coming in through the windows and all-out, chair-smashing brawls.

      New reports seem to indicate that these goons were spontaneous volunteers.
