    People generally march because they disagree with someone the government is doing, and that just happens to be happening a lot at the moment. It doesn't make them bad people... Why should we all agree with the government?
    The people rioting and causing trouble aren't representative of the people protesting, they are usually anarchists who just want to cause trouble anyway.
    Almost all of the people marching weren't involved in the bad things that followed.

    completely nothing alike, toppling an almost disctator like regime that has had a monopoly on government for dozens of years and being indiscriminately attacked in the streets for going against the government, open riots and clashes in the streets, outright genuine anarchy as opposed to a peaceful large protest followed by a couple hundred idiots just smashing stuff up and attacking police

    Tahir square is waaay bigger anyway

    Mubarak was from Burma?
    No, but the dictatorship there is pretty similar to Egypt's former dictatorship, if not worse.
