How can anyone kill a face like this?
After handing a prize to Obama (of all people), this should be no surprise. If hacking into a series of computers and opening one's fool mouth is worthy of a prize, there is probably some Asian kid wondering why he is not getting a Nobel Prize for World of Warcraft.
Mubarak may have promised to step down but his supporters are still out in full force:
Backers of President Hosni Mubarak, throwing petrol bombs, wielding sticks and charging on camels and horses, attacked protesters in Cairo on Wednesday after the army told reformists demanding the president quit to go home.
Anti-Mubarak demonstrators hurled stones back and said the attackers were police in plainclothes. The Interior Ministry denied the accusation, and the Egyptian government rejected international calls for Mubarak to end his 30-year rule now.
This apparent rebuff along with the appearance of Mr. Mubarak supporters on Cairo’s streets and their clashes with protesters — after days of relatively calm demonstrations — complicated U.S. calculations for an orderly transition of power in Egypt.
In pointed comments, a senior U.S. official said it was clear that “somebody loyal to Mubarak has unleashed these guys to try to intimidate the protesters”.
Troops and tanks stood by as the violence raged.
The emergence of Mubarak loyalists, whether ordinary citizens or police, injected a new dynamic into the momentous uprising in this most populous Arab nation of 80 million people.
The protests broke out last week as public frustration with corruption, oppression and economic hardship under Mr. Mubarak boiled over. At least 140 people are estimated to have been killed so far and there have been protests across the country.
