CARIO - After a near-bloodless coup, everything actually goes well.

There was actually a fall of government, and very few got hurt. Fancy that? Wait, what? There's an actual rewritten constitution?

This is one of those Spoof things ain't it? Inhopeless Media Group is a respectable news outlet.

What? You're kidding right? NO WAY! So... you mean? Actually? Well, apparently the leader has actually handed power over to the people. People?! You mean, actual people? Hang on. This is a pretty good practical joke.

Look, the BBC are in on it. So are C..N...N and... Reuters. This is a pretty elaborate prank. You got me.

Wait? There's a domino effect? Like Communism was thought to happen but didn't? There wasn't much of a domino effect in 20th Century Communism so... wait? Huh? You're shitting right? They're actually protesting?

Okay, so apparently people in Bahrain, Algeria and other Middle Eastern nations are... look, stop pulling the wool over my eyes. I'm not stubborn. Middle East peace... army?

Egypt has gone from a militaristic dictatorship to army control? Yeah, even thought I got an A* in GCSE Modern World History, I'm sure that's the same thing.

Okay, anyway, so yeah. There are riots in the streets... the Economist too? Fine. I belive you. Did you know the Economist said Big Society is shit? Yeah. Anyway, so there's some riots, blah blah blah, bloodless coup, yada yada... this is boring man. This has happened thoughout history. It's nothing new.

As of press time, I... okay... very funny. Stop winding me up! There's peace in Egypt, happy now?
