Video: Civil War Breaking Out in Egypt?

This video is labelled "Egyptian Snipers Shooting from Rooftops" in Port Said. But a) they don't appear to be snipers; and b) whoever they are shooting at is shooting back. I'll point out one other thing: the people on the roof appear to be wearing civilian clothes, yet the flag they are flying is clearly the Egyptian flag -- not the black flag of al Qaeda.

Protests are turning violent in Egypt and those doing the protests are mainly liberals dissatisfied with the Islamist government. I know we've run a few posts showing al Qaeda flags mixed in with them, but if push comes to shove who do you think the Salafis are going to back? An Islamist president or the infidels protesting him?

Very much related:

A man was shot dead on Monday in a fifth day of violence in Egypt that has killed 50 people and prompted the Islamist president to declare a state of emergency in an attempt to end a wave of unrest sweeping the Arab world's biggest nation.

Emergency rule announced by President Mohamed Mursi on Sunday covers the cities of Port Said, Ismailia and Suez. The army has already been deployed in two of those cities and cabinet approved a measure to let soldiers arrest civilians....

Thousands of mourners joined funerals in Port Said for the latest victims in the Mediterranean port city. Seven people were killed there on Sunday when residents joined marches to bury 33 others who had been killed a day earlier, most by gunshot wounds in a city where arms are rife.

3 If you don't allow people to vote at the ballot box, they will start to vote from the rooftops.

7 If civil war in Egypt causes the collapse of their economy does the United States taxpayer get the honor of paying the bill? We got the honor of paying for their F-16s and 200 of our finest tanks.
Brazil gave them nothing. They don't hate Brazil. There's a lesson to be learned here. That lesson is mind your own business.

8 They elected the muslime brotherhood let them live or die with it. Once again the quote from Bob Baer "The muslim brotherhood is the grand daddy of all terrorists organizations". KILL ALL HIRABI'S!!!
