Protests in Eygpt

Can you believe this is the current state of Egypt?

Citizens are protesting the government there over corruption, the economy, and their president of the last 30 years. It is crazy to see the extent of the damage from the riots and counters from police.

One ruler for 30 years seems ridiculous and difficult to comprehend for those of us whose government changes every 2 and 4 years. I hate the idea of riots and resorting to violence to accomplish anything, but think of what all they must have attempted in the past 30 years. The continually failure of more peaceful measures to have any effect is what pushes people to these extremes. I can only hope the government makes concessions soon.
