Steven A. Cook puts some of the blame for recent clashes in Cairo on Egypt’s protesters. He also writes that Tahrir Square "smells like piss":

Each of Egypt's primary political actors -- the military, revolutionary groups, Islamists, and liberals -- have contributed mightily to the country's current political impasse and economic collapse through a combination of incompetence, narcissism, and treachery.
