Egyptian Tiananmen Square Redux Fail?

Tyler Durden's picture





 

1 minute 23 seconds into the clip below a solitary Egyptian protester stands up to a riot police water cannon in an attempted recreation of the Tiananmen Square tank hold up... And gets blasted squarely in the face. Cause that's how Egypt rolls. Plus, whatever happens in Egypt stays in Egypt right? In other news, the first casualty has been reported, after reports from Khaled Said claim Egyptian police in Suez opened fire live ammunition killing Mustafa Reda Mahmoud Abdelfattah, 20 years old.

Looks like they're gearing up for protest (which always seem to turn into riots) in Yemen:

Yemeni opposition announces open protests

Yemeni opposition announced the start of a popular open protest against the regime

* By Sara Shurafa, Staff Reporter
* Published: 13:15 January 25, 2011

Dubai: Yemeni opposition announced the start of a popular open protest against the regime, in a meeting of the Joint Meeting Parties opposition coalition (JMP) Monday night.

The meeting took place at the Attorney General’s Office, where thousands of protestors gathered demanding the release of detained activist in connection with recent rallies inspired by the Tunisian revolt.

With head of the supreme council of the opposition saying in his speech “the time has come for the political parties to lead a massive protest against the corrupt and repressive regime”.

  The possible downside is Epic...

 And the Egyptians really deserve a better government ...I hope they get it, and are left alone.But certain players in the Middle East never seem pleased with the people's wishes...

 Hence my question.

This was hardly a fail.  It looks like the protestors turned the water so it faced straight up.  All they needed was a nail gun or some such to disable it.

Might have to think of some sort of material that can block up a water cannon.  Something sticky enough to block the flow.  Perhaps quick-set superglue grenade?

If you could manage to mix quick set concrete with superglue and get it into a water balloon before the superglue started to set, you would make a hell of a mess dropping that thing in the cannon while it is off.

Who called it a fail?  Only if you didn't watch to near the end of the video.  That's when I started to LOL (literally).  It was a beautiful sight.  That dude ran up to the truck not knowing exactly what the fuck he was going to do, but it stopped.  "Shades of Tiananmen," he must've been thinking to himself.  Then he decides, "Hey, I'll bet there are cameras on me right now.  I'ma do something to make momma proud!"  Hilarity ensues.

As for your idea, won't work.  That water pressure is waaaaaay too much for anything to get lodged into the spigot.  The better option is to ram a metal spike into the radiator (as long as it isn't adequately armored) or something else to disable the truck.

These dudes did an admirable job, and the driver of the truck deserves credit as well for not turning them into Arabic flatbread.  We can tell what side he's rooting for.

Nobody likes Mubarak.  Unless they come out with absolute and overwhelming force right now (i.e. an all out bloodbath that will make the regime look even worse than it does now) then he should be packing the last of his gold and plotting a route to the nearest airfield.

Tyler did, in the thread title.

As for the water cannon, the seal only has to be stronger than the next weakest seal, which is surely inside the truck somewhere, probably at the pump.  Barring that, simply making it impossible to aim should suffice.

I thought the truck driver, or at least the person operating the water canon, seemed to be trying to avoid hitting those kids right in front of the truck.  It appeared to me that the water canon was intentionally being aimed high almost as if trying to avoid hitting any of the protesters with full force.  Still no less an admirable show of courage by the sheep.

At least some of the guys got a bath.

This is not what you think.  The US and Israel kept Mumbarak in power since Sadat.  We render a ton of bad guys over there and its not to see the Pyramids.  People forget that al Zawahiri and the other guy military AQ dude are Egyptians - who went AQ after being jailed/tortured in Egypt.  This is not to say that all protesters are islamic jihad/AQ, but when you talk to the average Joe in Cairo, they sound a lot more like Tehran "students" with a brother in a Savak jail before the Shah fell.  This will also be connected to the last Coptic/Christan deal in the MSM that was in the press earlier, so prepare for more crackdowns to be seen as American/Mossad operations.  This will just shake out who the next pro-US military president will be.  What happens on the Gaza border might be interesting - if that is ever reported.

This is what happens when you have a lot of unemployed people under a military dictatorship.  Somehow, adding Twitter to unemployed 20 somethings with 3 months of bootcamp Sharia as their only education equals another 50 years of blowback.

the Bahama's... is 30 minutes by boat and 15 minutes by plane..

from palm beach to Ft Lauderdale on I-95 is a longer trip away from my home than going to the Bahama's..

this is a map http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=palm+beach+west+end+bahamas&wrapid=tlif129598997131410&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wl

Figure out you fucking idiot hill billy.

And what? Dont you mean they can make it swimming if needed?

 

If the Bahamas is targeted by US foreign policy, see how many US citizens will move back home.

Never the right place to sit on the wrong side of the US foreing policy fence.

>> the Bahama's... is 30 minutes by boat

That is one fast boat you're running.  I'm guessing running at close to 100 mph you have to wait for glassy calm in the Gulf Stream?

west end is 54.3 miles.. thats dock to dock.. not as the crow flies.. tri power 34' venture... modified v's are faster than deep v's.. it wont go 100... or will it?

 

as for the gulf stream.. its a short rough run... wide open any crossing, flat glass or rollers (more fun) you will get beat up.. badly.

 

it is still quicker than going to the air port, getting molested and then waiting to talk off to 5,000 feet back down... out the doors, find a cab.. get to where ever... cars and boats are faster than public transportation, the airlines.

 

I enjoyed the farm land is working out for you, as opposed too? and how do you know about the gulfstream?

The farm land is working out fine.  It's not really a farm, just 10 acres, mostly wooded. I have about 2 acres cleard that I'm getting ready for a spring garden.  It's very secluded, which is hard to find cheap in Florida.  I spend a few hours every day hiking with my dog.  Getting ready to do a little extened US and Canada tavel if all goes well. 

As opposed to houses, commercial property and business in the city.

>>and how do you know about the gulfstream?

I"ve been in Florida most of my life, over 50 years.  I made my living on the water, at least up until now.  I sailed across the steam once, only time I've ever been sea sick.  I'm mainly a west coast (FL) guy.

in investments right now there is a change and US equities may go up but compared to emerging markets the US is better in that if markets go down US will go down less

China market giving a signal to shift out of emerging markets (Right Now) and industrial commodities and into US equities - Treasury oversold and he has a buy signal for the very short term  - Treasuries best place for next ten days and likely next 3 months

A 10% correction coming on S&P and a 30% correction coming on emerging

The difference with the Tank Man move in China was that the tank didn't have a water cannon, and obviously weren't prepared to open fire on the man. That would have proven to be a catalyst for a re-energized resistance. Whether the person commading the tank realized that or not isn't clear, they may have just not wanted to fire on a citizen. That's why the Tank Man was so effective, because the stark contrast between unarmed man in the street and massive tank would have meant crossing the rubicon.

My point being that the consequences of just firing the water cannon at this kid are minimal.

How fast our life would change... By stuff "Over There"

 Ok, A quick taste.

 

June 14
It all started (for me) with just a small item on an Internet news page, "Trouble in the Kingdom". I thought they were talking about Disney World (the Magic Kingdom) so I clicked on it. Turns out they were talking about "the repercussions of curtailed social services in Saudi Arabia". (Insert a big yawning noise here.) So their kids don't get free day care? Big whoop. I scanned the article for any mention of M. Mouse and then went on with my life. My mistake. No biggie. Really.

King Abdullah Completes NYC Hospital Stay

December 22, 2010

SUSRIS SPECIAL REPORT

 

King Abdullah completed a one-month hospitalization in New York following two successful back surgeries. (Photo: SPA)

King Abdullah completed a one-month hospital stay in New York City Tuesday following two operations to repair back problems according to the Saudi Press Agency citing the Royal Court. The 86-year old Saudi monarch was sidelined from his duties in early November when his doctors recommended he rest as treatment for a herniated disc. On November 22 he was transferred to New York Presbyterian hospital for surgical treatment of “lumbar spine disc prolapse complicated by a haematoma pressing on lower nerve roots causing pain,” according to a Saudi Health Ministry official. A second surgery on December 4 was undertaken to repair several vertebrae. The Royal Court statement said King Abdullah was transferred to his New York residence to recuperate. There was no indication how long the New York recovery period would last before the King returned to Saudi Arabia.
