I have a friend in Cairo. It is so sad what is going on there.

of course the US is seen to condone if not to have had its hand in the removal of Egypt's president by the US financed military. The US therefore needs to do more to stop the killings in the streets, to say the least

The involvement of the U.S. in what is going on makes me nervous.  There is always more than meets the eye!  The U.S. is financing the army.  I  don't think they were thrilled with the one who was elected president in the democratic election!

Unfortunately, we see once again another country in despair due to the constant fight to gain control of power.  At this point, we see the inability of the army to establish peace among citizens with Iran pumping the radicals to destabilize what was the most powerful country in the Middle East.

This is such a powerful image. The look on the woman's face is truly a mixture of complete despair, hopelessness...yet her gaze is riveting, capturing your very soul each time you look. Wonderful photo, terrible story. I pray for all the women and children who must suffer upon the actions of men.

@Allan T Dinegar no, actually president Obama was frustrated & kinda supported the former president, & an operation -a kind of training I understand- was cancelled by US govern. Besides its always known that US is not much an alley with the Egyptian Army , we are not sold weapons & such things from US, that was since the Egyptian 6th,October,1973 war between Egypt & Israel to get them out of Sinai.. US took Israel side, & later was a kind of 3rd part in the peace treaty signed betw. Egypt & Israel after Israel withdrawal from Sinai  :)
