How is it different?.. follow up

This is a very brief posting..  things like this just make me so Rrrrr...

From AP News:

"Egyptian soldiers and police set fire to protest tents in Cairo's Tahrir Square and fired tear gas and rubber bullets in a major assault Sunday to drive out thousands..."

Substitute NYPD officers for Egyptian soldiers, Zuccotti Park for Tahrir Square and change the date from today to Thursday 11/17, and you have the exact same news article and event.

So how is America's response to demonstrations and protest different than Egypt.. or Greece or Portugal or Spain or Britain...  All use heavily armed thugs with batons and gas canisters to disperse crowds with messages the authorities disagree with...

Really... how is it different?
