Three Americans Detained in Cairo Clashes

Three young Americans were reportedly arrested in Cairo on suspicion of throwing Molotov cocktails at security forces during ongoing protests.

This will not end well for them.

Stupid games, stupid prizes. Could have just as easily have been gunned down in the street by the popo.

I was in Greece, walking around constitution square, when a protest cropped up. Riot police moved in in huge fucking buses. I unassed the area as fast as I could. Scared the shit out of me.
