Reporter Lara Logan sexually assaulted by mob in Cairo’s Tahrir Square

Well that settles it. I no longer give a fuck about the Egyptians at the hands of Mubarak or any of their welfare given this is how they think it’s appropriate to treat Western females.

That this happened in open public view really goes to the heart of cultural differences and although Lara Logan was taking a risk venturing into the streets as a blond uncovered Westerner, why should we give nations airtime or sympathy or political attention if they ultimately do not share so many of our basic morals or civil rights?

    I don’t think it has anything to do with “Western culture”
    mobs are mobs, and are a product of anarchy and lawlessness
    that’s why police break up mobs with water cannons

    if you are a westerner in the middle of an Egyptian mob you are conspicuous
    (especially if you have blond hair)
    you become the focal point of the mob

      Perhaps it is because they are sexually repressed and too poor to receive a proper education. And all the images they get are from sexualised roles in movies and porn. I’m not saying that they have a right to grope but I encountered similar treatment in India. Although I did not enjoy it I can understand where part of it comes from.
