      here a few days ago was only based, if I got it right, was based on observed police or military snipers firing at people who were trying to break into the Interior Ministry.

      1. they may have been pro Mubarak people trying to torch buildings so as to impel and justify a crackdown
      1. it shows that the government: police or military will use deadly force to defend it.

      So:
         A direct attack on that building would be a bloody event and may cost more than it would benefit.

      Better to undermine the Interior Ministry and it's building politically, anyway the current regime will probably burn it down when they finally give up.

      Not enough shredders.

      Responsible people leave neither loaded guns nor paranoid, eliminationist ideologies laying around for the mentally ill to play with.
