When you fight against the army, the police, and security forces, do you think that you are fighting the authorities where they least expect it?
Do you think they are not prepared for that?
Why, that is not only what they are prepared for, that is what they are MADE for. That is exactly why the security forces exist : to fight you.
What, do you think that the Egyptian army exists to protect you against an invasion from Sudan? They exist only to fight you. To suppress you. To protect the power structure AGAINST you.
They know very well how to do that, because that is ALL they do…the real question is, do you know how to fight the power structure in a way they are NOT prepared for?
