I guess when you looking on the outside in , and not exposed to all the propaganda from the inside, you have a clearer image about a person.

If they did that in the good old USA they would have been tear gassed and beaten. Can you say Occupy Oakland?

Good point, Dork.. Glad you noticed that the many anarchist fools attaching themselves like leeches to Occupy Oakland were akin to the sort of Egyptian mobs that attack Christians

""""Protesters In Egypt Pelt Hillary Clinton's Motorcade With Tomatoes"""""------ the Egyptians are promised democracy will make their homeland HEAVEN ON EARTH, so they on fighting on streets throwing everything and making fires just to prove their point. Then elections are held and they start all over again, and as they say it rains like cats and dogs but in Egypt it rains tomatoes and shoes. They do have something after getting a lot of democracy. Who can teach these so PYRAMIDICAL PEOPLE.

That they threw tomatoes shows Egypt's relatively high standard of living that they have what to eat. In many places in the world, particularly on the African continent, tomatoes would be food, not weapons.

Unaware comment. Egypt has been and is a modern society. Ask any Egyptian kid at a coffee house on the Internet.

Excuse me? I've taught International Relations of the Middle East and International Relations of North Africa at a large university. It's precisely because Egypt is such an advanced (always has been!) and modern society that throwing tomatoes seems so incongruous.

Ironically, as Rachel Maddow pointed out last night, the reason that Egyptian protesters are so furious with Clinton is because they have been reading the vilification of her by American right wing ideologues on the internet! They actually believe that Morsi's Islamist government has been put in power and imposed on Egypt by the U.S. The "kid on the internet" throwing the tomatoes is reading the worst of the right wing trash about the US--and believing it.

Even extremely poor countries have a 1%.

In this case, protesters were of the higher middle class, secularist variety.

The US backed Mubarak for decades, who brutally suppressed the rights of all Egyptians, including minorities (religious and otherwise), and he did so without so much as a negative comment from our leaders.

Even during Tahrir Square, when it was clear that Mubarak was a thug that needed to go, the US refused to publicly dump him until the very last moment, when it was all but inevitable.

Despite relatively free and fair democratic elections that followed his ouster, our Secretary of State sits with the senior ranking General (Mubarak's Defense Minister for 20 years no less!) who says he "will not allow a certain group" to dominate the country, as if he has the right to make this call, rather than the Egyptian electorate.

Rather than distancing herself and/or voicing disapproval at such an openly undemocratic thought, our Secretary of State feels that the right thing to say is that the impasse "requires dialogue and compromise, real politics."

All this, brought to you by the people who claim to acting in furtherance of "freedom and democracy" (TM) around the world, often at the barrel of a gun.

And people wonder why she gets the tomato sauce treatment in Egypt. The next doe-eyed blond on Faux News that asks why they hate us should be slapped.

the US didn't select Mubarak and it wasn't up to the US to publicly dump him, Rush. Obama did more than enough when he went to Cairo and made a few remarks.

and Rush, old limpbone, let us know when you get an Arab head of state who has anything to say about freedom and democracy that matches his actions.

endless brutality, lies, hypocrisy and blaming the world for your own failures and inadequacies suggests shoving tomatoes in your own mouths till you get your own house in order.

The US supported him all the way.

Why isn't it up to the US to dump him when the US feels free to invade any country when it doesn't like the man in charge? All of a sudden you get cold feet?

If you're out to support democracy, then put your money where your mouth is. Unconditionally support any democratic movement and tell the dictator to go.

How come that's no problem in Libya and Syria, but in the Egyptian case suddenly you want the US to go softly softly?

Now you want the US to behave like Arab dictators? Why is that?

Egyptians need to grow up and channel their anger to their own leaders.

The master leader is the USA, the puppet leader was Mubarak and now the military junta. They are all corrupt.

"It was not clear who the protesters were or what political affiliations they had."

Well, if you recall, while the revolution was happening in Egypt, and the patriots longing for freedom were being harmed by weapons both made and supplied by the USA, Hillary Clinton went on TV to proclaim that she considered the Mubaraks "family friends." That might explain why a broad range of people may not lie Hillary Clinton so much.

Are the Israeli the only country in the region entitled to freedom and security? If this be the case Israel will always be under sedge, even though the are the strongest army in the region and certainly don't need any more money for security. Why are we always being lied to?
