Egypt riots: soldiers strip and beat woman in public
SO much for the Arab spring in Egypt. The people are clashing with soldiers. The Egyptian soldiers have killed 8 protestors. One photograph of the horror stands out: a woman is being dragged along the ground by the soldiers. They have ripped off her top, exposing her bra and torso. One soldier is preparing to stamp on her. This is what they do in public in Cairo’s Tahrir Square. You wonder what goes on in the cells…
Egyptian soldiers have been seen tossing journalists’ TV cameras off of balconies. They don’t want you see.
There can be no chance without debate. And there is no meaningful dialogue. The protestors kicked out the leader but got not closer to power. Kicking out Hosni Mubarak was not a revolution – it was just changing the glove on power’s dead hand.
