Egyptian Army Fires (a Lot) on Coptic Catholics

This is "democracy", eh?

For the second time in as many days, Egyptian armed force stormed the 5th century old St. Bishoy monastery in Wadi el-Natroun, 110 kilometers from Cairo. Live ammunition was fired, wounding two monks and six Coptic monastery workers. Several sources confirmed the army’s use of RPG ammunition. Four people have been arrested including three monks and a Coptic lawyer who was at the monastery investigating yesterday’s army attack.

Army personnel were shouting "Allahu Akhbar" during the assault on the monestary.

Perhaps Obama and HRC--who both encouraged the revolution--weren't thinking a few steps ahead.

Good thing they didn't shout "Buy more ammo!" or "Wolverines."
