Egypt: The Kiss – Part 2

I have to say, I’m a little wary of how much predictive stock to place in uprising visuals. That said, however, “the chemistry” between the military and civilian protesters flooding out of Cairo right now is very interesting. After this “first kiss” (or attempt at one), for example, only a few days ago, we see quite a twist above. As the military goes, so goes Egypt?”

Here are a few other inspired examples from the stream (1, 2), by the way, that play like liberation visuals.
