"...it's not the training to be mean but the training to be kind that is used to keep us leashed best." ~ Black Dog Red

"In case you haven't recognized the trend: it proceeds action, dissent, speech." ~ davidly, on how wars get done

"...What sort of meager, unerotic existence must a man live to find himself moved to such ecstatic heights by the mundane sniping of a congressional budget fight. The fate of human existence does not hang in the balance. The gods are not arrayed on either side. Poseiden, earth-shaker, has regrettably set his sights on the poor fishermen of northern Japan and not on Washington, D.C. where his ire might do some good--I can think of no better spot for a little wetland reclamation project, if you know what I mean. The fight is neither revolution nor apocalypse; it is hardly even a fight. A lot of apparatchiks are moving a lot of phony numbers with more zeros than a century of soccer scores around, weaving a brittle chrysalis around a gross worm that, some time hence, will emerge, untransformed, still a worm." ~ IOZ

The word they refuse to use...

MSNBC analyst Michael Singh, like dozens of others over the last week, just referred to what's occurring in Egypt as a "protest movement," during a discussion with the talking head about the tide turning against the Egyptian people.

It's not a protest movement.

It's a revolution.

What's happening against it is not an "orderly transition" or an "attempt to bring stability" to Egypt and the region. These are not "Mubarak supporters" counter-protesting in support of the puppet regime. They're cops, out of uniform. Vile, paid thugs of the colonial garrison state's best ally in the region.

It's a counter revolution.
