The wrong kind of protesters continued.

The official death toll from the crushing of the sit-ins in Cairo is now higher than the "official" toll of those killed at the similar smashing of the Tiananmen Square protests.  Estimates vary as to the number killed on June the 4th 1989, but most place it in the hundreds, approaching a thousand, although it could be considerably more.  Likewise, it seems certain that the current figure of 525 dead from yesterday's assaults will increase.  Doubtless then, we can expect the same sanctions and arms embargoes imposed on China then to be imposed on the Egyptian military now.  Right?
