Mackey flags the reaction of an Egyptian blogger:
In a biting, angry and harrowing commentary on the clashes unfolding in Cairo on Wednesday, the Egyptian blogger who writes as Sandmonkey has called the appearance of regime supporters on Cairo’s streets, igniting violent clashes, a ploy by President Hosni Mubarak to create chaos and justify his continued rule.
This seems such an obvious, cynical ploy by Mubarak. He is showing his true colors for the world to see. Tear gas (provided by US aid & infamously “Made in the USA” and used by the abusive police) and random gun shots are being fired.
The scary thing is there are reports of a lot of women and children still stuck in the Tahrir Square. The US government and EU needs to freeze personal bank accounts and foreign aid to Egypt ASAP.
