“Chemical Warfare” in Cairo’s Tahrir Square Right Now

Look at these horrible tweets being sent by Sharif Kouddous from Cairo’s Tahrir Square right now (4:27 p.m. ET):

The people of Egypt are rallying because though they ousted Mubarak, the army is still in charge and they don’t want that.  They want democratic elections.  And this is what they get.

Oh, and a note regarding Rick Perry:  At the Republican “debate” in Iowa on Saturday night, Rick Perry said, if elected, he would end civilian control of the U.S. military.  What’s happening in Egypt is what happens when the military is out of civilian hands.  It’s called a military dictatorship.
