THIS. IS. CIABATTAAAAAAAAAAA!
Now seriously, why does he have bread on his head?
it's summer, baby.
i'm guessing from those other pictures it's a way to protect his head maybe?
looks like its a makeshift helmet to me...
please keep these LOL's rolling
After the initial shootings, it became apparent that there was a government hand in the "pro-Mubarak" camp, so they started throwing rocks instead. Most of the injuries coming in now are head injuries. Hence, Bread Hat.
David Mitchell was talking about how much it discredits Mubarak's claim to offer at least stability - "Surely the very face of chaos is a man desperately strapping bread to his ears!"
"And to all those watching tonight from beyond our shores, from parliaments to palaces, to those who are huddled around radios in the forgotten corners of the world: our stories are singular, but our destiny is shared, and a new dawn of American leadership is at hand." b to the o commander and mothafukin chief

I think protesters are too bent on ousting Mubarak. This man, Omar Suleiman, was the head of intelligence in Egypt for ages. He has been personally responsible for all kinds of murder and torture. This will likely have terrible consequences.
edit: and the United States supports this. Suleiman + USA= bff

so the army's taking over after all.
OK I'll believe you and not the NY Times then.
The youthful leaders of the protest movement said that they would welcome a role for the military in running the government during a transitional period, provided it was overseen by a council composed mainly of civilians. They repeated their previous demand that the council should include only one military officer, and oversee the government for a maximum of one year until free elections under a revised constitution.
Some said they worried about the next steps. “Of course we don’t want the military, but the people still consider the military the nation’s savior,” said Abdel Rahman Faris, 30, an independent member of the youth council set up to lead the revolution. “We should have enough guarantees that the military will not turn into another Mubarak.”
He said the young leaders of the revolution did not expect any of their number to sit on their proposed transitional council. “We are the youth,” he said. “We know where our role stops.”
Moaz Abdel Karim, a 29 year old leader of the youth section of the Muslim Brotherhood, agreed: “We have had enough of military rule. We want a civilian president.”
also if the military was taking over it would be known as a Coup, which the Egyptian government and I believe the US government have come out saying that it officially is NOT a coup

did you not read page 1?
Tom is correct.
Mubarak may have been a general, but it seemed more of a police authority rule, rather than a military rule. This transitional command is not a coup, but it's still led by the military. Just because the military will take charge of transitions doesn't mean it's a coup. It's not like they're storming into the HQ to take out Mubarak. HE might have seen their refusal to stop protesters as a coup, but they are just taking a temporary charge... hopefully... And just because the Muslim Brotherhood say they don't want another military rule doesn't make x and y the same thing. They mean they don't want the country to be ruled by the armed, like the police or military.
lol, dick move.
Mubarak fucked with all those people by not stepping down, as was widely reported; that man is stubborn as a mule.
Well apparently the Egyptian people are en route to the presidential palace, presumably where Mubarak taped his speech, I doubt he's even there now.
Nonetheless, this could escalate and turn really ugly fast.
