When "Made In U.S.A" Spells Trouble

NY Daily News Excerpt:
Tear gas being used by the country's police on protesters in Cairo was made in the U.S., according to multiple reports. Several canisters were recovered from a downtown square in the country's capital with labels reading "Made in U.S.A."

It wasn't long after those discoveries that Pro-Mubarak forces (according to reports) began attacking American news media reporters and workers. That's all America needs from both sides. That pro-democracy demonstrators might think we're complicit with the oppressive dictatorial regime while the dictatorial establishment works to oppress American reporters.

Egyptions finally get it, democracy that is. But will they really get it?
