    Reports are that it was an extended and brutal assault by a large group of the Cairo mob. My first and current thought is that these bastards deserve a dictator.

    When ws yhe last time we had a mob rape a foreign coorespondance. Pisses me off. That's the way I feel about it right now. You want to rationalize it, go ahead.

    No one is condoning or rrationalizing it.

    The point is that it isn't a reason why the country deserves a dictator.

    The people who did attack her do deserve a dictator in the name of a prison warden.

    If CBS had ugly female journalists it probably would not have happened.

    Well, if you are talking about lifetime rate of rape/attempted rape for women by race then it is a pretty tough stretch to equate Native Americans (34% ) to Egyptians. I'm not real sure what you are driving at, but I would go back and check your stats.

    And gang rape is not an unheard of thing in the U.S. Just 2 days ago a group of 13 year old boys rape a classmate as she was walking home.

    Rape is a crime of violence committed against all kinds and ages of women including babies. It has nothing to do with people like you whacking off while you slobber over glossy pictures of celebrities.

    Apparently there have been at least 76 comparable assaults on journalists in Egypt, including Egyptian journalists, in the last couple of weeks. One wonders why you waited until an American one was assaulted before becoming outraged.

    What about the people who rescued her? What do they deserve?

    And all so you can get the live coverage from within the crowd for enhanced realism.

    Why? Is it now a crime on this site to be upset?

    I get it, to the rest of you. Sometimes stoicism doesn't cut it for me.

    You didn't indicate you were upset about the between 500-1000 Egyptians being killed by government forces during the protests. Do you only get upset when bad things happen to pretty US reporters?

    It's a tragic occurrence for her personally and I hope she gets the help she needs. But to go from this incident to "they [the Egyptian people] deserve a dictator" is a jump to irrationality I'm not willing to take.
