I grew up in a military family and joined the Air Force in 1971 during the Vietnam War. It was there that I became a peace activist.

Egypt brings in the military to now try to do what the police could not - suppress the population.

I read one news story that reported a young man picked up a tear gas canister and saw it was made in the USA. That pretty much sums it all up for me.

The government of Egypt owes its power to the U.S. military industrial complex.

Something is sweeping the world....real hope and change. It's time for it to hit the USA.

Actually, while the tanks were rolling in on Friday, Al Jazeera was reporting that the crowds were welcoming them as if they were expecting the army to protect their rights. Apparently, there is huge respect for the army in Egypt. It has integrity.

Rich: The tear gas probably was from the large police forces that keep the dictatorship in power.

Yes, that seems to be true - I have been hearing that being reported on many of the networks. The police are hated. The army is not. Fascinating.
