Lost in Translation

Watching the events in Egypt

So, the hated police who had cart blanch to arrest people and torture them 'disappeared' over the last few days in Cairo. Average citizens formed neighborhood watches to patrol their neighborhoods while protesters demonstrate (despite some criminal elements) and suddenly 'pro Mubarak protesters' show up and violently clash with those in Liberation Square?

Right.

Wonder who these new thugs are? Hmmmmm.

Now there's gunfire everywhere.

No one's being fooled here. Obviously with the protest movement gaining ground, suddenly things plunge into chaos and violence.

Anyone can tell that this is a ploy for those not involved in the protesting to ask the government to restore order. These are horrible tactics and I pray for those fighting a dictatorship will be able to hold on.
