Does anyone else find it ironic that people protesting the deadly soccer clashes in Egypt ended up being shot by the police leading to the 3 deaths and 1,500 injuries? Would the next protest be about the violence at protest about the violence at the protest? This could easily turn into an infinite loop of protests. I respect the people's right to protest, I really do, but I also think protesters need to be mindful of what kind of situation they are in. Violent clashes with the powers that be won't solve anything if those powers have become immune to them. As matter of fact, if they are the ones perpetuating the violence it's better to stay at home and find alternative means to voice dissent. I don't know what the alternative would be in Egypt right now, peaceful protests seems to have gone out of fashion.
