To the protesters in America:
To any protester in the US who compares his protest to Cairo, Tripoli, or Tunis:
No, you are not anything like the Egyptians/Lybians/Tunisians. What you are facing is nothing, literally nothing compared to what they are facing. Until you've faced bombs, incendiary rounds being shot at you, and tear gas, you have no room to talk. All you are doing is cheapening the protests in North Africa. For so long as you compare yourself to any of those people, your protest will be seen as shallow and baseless to me. Your protest is only similar to the protest of the Egyptians/Lybians/Tunisians in the sense that a clod of dirt is similar to Mount St. Helens.
