Uh Oh: Clashes erupt in Egypt ahead of 'million man' event

I feel like everybody fights for their freedom that we ALL take for granted. Ok, so we have the "Occupy Movement" but I've seen club flyers talllum bout "Occupy Club So and So". Joke. Americans are the only people in the "civilized world" who are so comfortable and "secure" that they could give a f*ck less if they are free or otherwise. And by the way for those of you that don't know.... 1% owns 98% of the wealth in this country - which leaves the 99% of the population with what???? Yep 2% of the wealth to survive. That's the hook "We are the 99%"

Cairo (CNN) -- Fresh violence broke out near Cairo's Tahrir Square Tuesday, a day after Egypt's Cabinet attempted to resign, submitting a resignation to the nation's military-led government.
For several hours, protesters hurled stones at police and chanted, calling for the downfall of the Supreme Council of Armed Forces, which started running the country after protesters ousted former President Hosni Mubarak in February. Demonstrators apparently tried to defend Tahrir Square as they faced off with police on a connecting street.
Egyptian police responded with tear gas and rubber bullets, forcing protesters to retreat briefly before they returned with renewed intensity. Violence also spread to other parts of Egypt.
Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, head of Egypt's Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, will address the nation Tuesday, according to Egyptian state broadcaster Al Masriya. The latest report contradicted an earlier one saying he would speak "shortly."
After Mubarak's fall, military leaders took control with the promise that eventually a civilian government would be elected and take over.
Military leaders still say they will hand over power to a new government when one is elected. Though parliamentary elections are set to take place November 28, a complex electoral process follows, and presidential elections could be a year away.
