The picture of the girl with exposed blue bra after her top was stripped by Egyptian army personnel who unleashed brutal beating upon her and many other protesters has quickly become the new symbol of ongoing Egyptian revolution. Egypt – as is a well known fact to us in the know – is the torture capital of the world. It seems to be the favorite destinations of the US government where they’d send unwanted elements they wish to have tortured.
The inbred lust of Egyptians to inflict pain and suffering upon another has not ceased to be with the ousting of Hosni Mubarak. And so Egyptians continue protesting and the security forces continue beating the living bejeesus out of them.
The video below is to a slow start so fast forward to 0.30 second mark to skip the message in Arabic. Translated it allegedly says the following:
- Kasr al-Aini events, December 17, 2011
- To those defending the military council
- To the oblivious who believe that the army and people are one hand
- To El-Ganzoury, did you speak the truth?
- And finally, are those the Earth’s finest soldiers?
Kasr al-Aini mentioned in the first sentence is the name of the street on which the protests are concentrated. El-Ganzoury mentioned in the fourth line is the name of Egypt’s current Prime Minister. There are some pretty severe beatings with batons and stompings taking place throughout the video. Egypt at its finest. Oh, I don’t actually know what the author of the video was trying to imply with the last line of the welcome message when he/she asks: “Are those the Earth’s finest soldiers?” Since when did Egypt have the Earth’s finest soldiers?
Here’s one more video of people beaten by Egyptian military during protests in Cairo. It contains much of the same footage the above video does with some extras. In case YouTube removes it, check this one hosted on LiveLeak:
