The Strife In Egypt - August 14, 2013

Sometimes, even these days, a picture/video IS worth 1,000 words. The below video from Al Jazeera depicts Cairo amid "protests". The Egyptian government stated that it wished to "downplay the reports of heavy handed violence" and "no live rounds were used against the protesters". The Muslim Brotherhood, the opposition, claims that the opposition did not have guns during the protests.

With over 500 reported killed and the video clearly showing "civilians" using AK-47s, I think both sides have learned from obama - "Never let the truth stand in the way of a good story."
