    @ Jim Brieske, With all due respect, I submit weapons DO have something to do with it . I dont question thier courage either . BEING DEAD and going thru the process of DYING are two different things . Having a gun stuffed in thier face and threats against family are enough to make even the bravest think twice.

      @Raven, With all due respect, if you point a gun in my face OR threaten my family, you had better kill me because I will absolutely take your life without a second thought. Not everyone is a coward.

      I disagree.

      You can only die once. You can live as a coward for what will feel like eternity.

      Tim – Im still laughing at you.

      Oh Tim, Tim, Tim, you sound soooo...12! Such bravado, such clear unwavering insecurity in your manhood; This is not Call of Duty, this is not an Xbox game. Have you ever even been in a riot – I mean a real riot – it SUCKS. So drop the bravado BS, its just juvenile.

      Tim is right......there are people of principal and people who live for themselves. Those of us who have been in combat.......real combat, not what the other 99.5 percent of America view as combat (call of duty) , know what principal is....if someone points a gun in my face, I will destroy them or die trying. So when the rest of you "citizens" (who have no real ability to claim your right to citizenship) mock a man who stands his ground.........remember that there are people willing to stand their ground against unbeatable odds. Have a great American day....you ungrateful B&*$ards.

    @ Tim , with all due respect , I think the people that are getting clocked by rocks in the head and face are anything BUT cowards . Was trying to say belief in God is no barometer of bravery .

    I was shooting on the front line during Toronto's G20, and I will tell you a baton hurts like hell, so do rubber bullets – and they were not sparing journialists or anyone else. And it has NOTHING to do with coward vs courage – things happen too darn fast to play the hero card.

    The protesters are in a strange spot. On the one hand it is beginning to seem like holding the square is going to leave them boxed in eventually and prey to Mubaraks thugs. But this idea of storming any building or the palace? if that happens the Army would have no choice but to defend the palace – and thats going to be even uglier.

    @ Mark, I was thinking about that yesterday when they were talkin bout takin more of the square. Was wondering if Mubarak is using siege tactics ? Keep em there til theyre too tired and hungry to protest any longer ?

    @Tim, I don't understand why you are missing the point entirely. Weapons are relevant; you can have all the courage in the world, but a 357 Magum fired down someone's face won't be deterred by courage. That's the point here.

    @ Doppleganger , I agree completely . My argument had nothing to do with whether anyone believes or not.

    That was so obviously staged. Notice how the camera goes to the van and closely follows it well before it hits anyone. How on earth did it know? I wonder.

    Lesson: Don't believe everything you read or see. There are quite a few out there trying to shape world opinion.

      your an idiot. A car trying to drive on a mob filled street will always garner the attention of any cameraman. he was probably filming the mob for half an hour, so when this car came along it must have been very interesting.

      Anywho, way to be the generic "it was fake" guy, without people like you the internet wouldn't be the same

      especially since the van was going like 40 mph down a street with full of people

    @raven, you did make such a valid point, but I don't know how Tim could be so off. Mark's comments really speak volumes-so level headed.

    Could be but it followed it for a long way before it "hit" anyone.

      The guy next to the camera man said: "Look there, they are trying to chase the protesters away!" so the guy with the camera aimed it at the police car...

    @Pobo – Raven is absolutely correct. You could hear the van honking it's horn before the camera turned to it. Not everything is a conspiracy Pobo if you would actually open your mind and look at things without bias. It would be pretty obvious and you would come to the same conclusion as raven did.
