In the midst of violence…

Protesters stopped an army officer from shooting himself as he sobbed

Witnessing his countrymen killing each other. Frustrated with his orders not to intervene, unable to stop the needless violence.

@AJELive: AJE correspondent: Cairo remains a “war zone” – a military officer tells AJE reporter that he has “no orders” to do anything. #Egypt

Eventually the people will win. Eventually the people always win.

    I don’t think there is any rule which says “the people always win”. It is a sad fact that revolutions often (even mostly) lead to worse tyranny unless the circumstances are very fortunate and propitious.

    The result is usually determined by a few ruthless, clever people behind the scenes who know what they want and are determined to get it – like the Russian Bolsheviks or the Chinese Communists.

    I wish I could be less pessimistic. It’s only bein’ so cheerful as keeps me goin’

    • Edward,

      Perhaps I should have said ‘At this stage in a revolution, the people always win’, meaning the regime most likely to fail.

      It comes down to the amount of time, and the number of bodies that it will take.

    Sadly, Ian, the people win for a short time and are then railroaded into another preprepared trap they were not suspecting. This is the nature of Them.
