    Asshattery has consequences people, especially if you're being an asshat in another country:

    Three American students arrested in Egypt's Tahrir Square

    By NBC News
    Three American students were arrested Monday evening during protests in Tahrir Square, a spokeswoman for The American University in Cairo told NBC News.
    Luke Gates, a student at Indiana University from Bloomington, Ind., Gregory Porter, a student at Drexel University from Glenside, Pa., and Derrik Sweeney, a student at Georgetown University from Jefferson City, Mo., are being held at the Abdeen police station in Cairo, reported NBC.
    The three are currently studying abroad at The American University in Cairo. University spokeswoman Morgan Roth said the university is in "fact-finding mode" about the detentions at the moment.

    "I don't have specifics on the charges they are facing or if they have been formally charged. I just know that they are being detained," Roth told NBC. The American University is working with the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to monitor the students' well-being, she said.
    NBC's Richard Engel said Egyptian television was reporting three American citizens were arrested after being seen throwing fire bombs from the roof of a building belonging to the American University near Tahrir Square, and that the U.S. Embassy was investigating. Link

    Just caught on ABC News, one of these idiots(Sweeney I believe) tweeting that he wishes the protests in NY were like the ones in Egypt. Asshole. Just goes to show that these "peaceful" protesters are all for violence as long as it supports their cause. I hope these idiots are made to pay dearly in Egypt.

    Prison? They were actively taking part in a movement against the government. They'll be lucky if they get to keep their heads attached.

    Rot in prison, shitheads. The tolerance of police forces like the Koreans for firebombs at protests is beyond my comprehension, as far as I'm concerned they are deady force and anyone holding one of them is a Priority One sniper target, and I do not mean shoot-to-wound.

    Especially when you know what the South Korean riot is about. These protesters were former undercover agents of the South Korean government who were sent on dangerous missions to the north, often for years at a time, then came home and were not paid for their work. They were barred by law from even discussing their mission, so they had no way to demand what they were owed. If anyone has a reason to be outraged, these brave men do. The contrast between the legitimacy of their grievances and the petty, irrational BS of the OWS poseurs couldn't be greater.

    Former spies riot in South Korea
    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/1874906.stm

    About 500 ageing former spies have clashed with riot police in the South Korean capital, Seoul, during a protest over compensation claims.

    The men, most of whom are in their 60s, say that as secret agents they were sent on highly dangerous infiltration missions to North Korea following the Korean war.

    They say they never received the recognition or compensation promised by the government for their work.

    The demonstrators used domestic gas cylinders as improvised flame throwers as they fought running battles with the police.

    A government official declined to confirm or deny that spies were ever sent to North Korea.

    Thousands missing
    Correspondents say hundreds of South Korean secret agents were killed, and more than 4,000 are still missing, after being sent to Communist North Korea when the war ended in 1953.

    The former spies, dressed in black uniforms, fought about 1,000 police with metal sticks and gas canisters, which they set fire to and used as makeshift flame throwers.

    The protesters, many wearing red, blue and yellow headbands with "sent to North Korea on spy mission" written on them, shouted "we demand an apology and compensation".

    The riot police were forced to retreat behind their shields until a fire truck moved in to douse the flames from the burning gas canisters.

    According to AFP, once demonstrator had to be hospitalised after slashing himself with a knife in the protest.

    'Broken promises'
    Security forces prevented the demonstrators from marching toward nearby government buildings.

    The former operatives are demanding that the government pay the cash bonuses, housing and other incentives that the government allegedly promised them in return for infiltrating North Korea between 1953 and the early 1970s.

    "We could not speak out under duress under past governments. We can no longer remain silent on our forgotten past," said 65-year-old Lee Dong-an, who said he was sent to North Korea in 1967.

    Last year, the National Assembly adopted a law to compensate the families of spies who had been killed or wounded in action.

    Under the new law they are entitled to claim up to 100m won ($77,000), plus a monthly payment of 670,000 won ($515), but no compensation has been offered to those who returned unhurt.

    Government officials said many of the spies received compensation paid at the end of their missions, something the former spies deny.

    Experts say thousands of operatives were sent over the border to spy on the North following the civil war.

    Of those about 300 were killed and more than 4,000 are still listed as missing, officials say.
