Remember how the Bush regime and its corporate media enablers made claims of "looting" in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina? Remember how those claims were wildly exaggerated and largely fictional, designed to justify leaving thousands of people there to die?

Well, it looks like the corporate media are justifying the brutalization of people with looting propaganda again, this time in Cairo. (CNN 1/29/11)

By day, tens of thousands turned out in cities across Egypt -- demanding the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak, calling for major economic and political reforms and, in multiple spots, bloodily clashing with police forces.

By night, with the security forces seemingly disappeared, some had stepped back to mourn those killed, treat their wounds or gather strength. Other citizens, meanwhile, gathered whatever weapons they could find as they banded together with friends, family and neighbors to protect their communities from roving bands of looters.

"There's no army, no one to prevent (theft and chaos). They disappeared," said one man from a Cairo suburb on Saturday night, who united with friends, cousins and neighbors to protect their property.

Yes, of course. The murderous police state in Egypt is necessary to protect the Egyptian people from the eeeeeebilllll looters. Put all those nasty people in Cairo in the Superdome a secure location for their own safety.

I can smell the bullshit all the way from the CNN corporate headquarters.

  2. The only looters in Egypt are the ruling elite, like in the US, who steal the hard work of the laborers and don't compensate them fairly. If they had, none of this would have happened.
    It's time for the US to end it's support of a dictatorship and allow the people of Egypt to decide for their own leadership and let the chips fall where they may.

  4. They love blaming people of color for everything, don't they?

    In solidarity with the Egyptian people who are rising up against the tyranny of the U.S.-backed and financed Hosni Mubarak.
