    BREAKING NEWS UPDATE:

    Egypt's top military commander says the army is now in full control of the country and President Mohammed Morsi has been replaced by the chief justice of the constitutional court as the interim head of state.

    He made the announcements in a Wednesday night speech -- the latest twist in an all-out power struggle inside Egypt that Morsi's national security adviser is describing as a military coup.

    Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi said the country's constitution has been temporarily suspended and Morsi has failed to meet the demands of Egypt's people.

    Fireworks and cheers erupted from the millions gathered in Tahrir Square after the announcement was made.

    Top military officials and opposition leaders met Wednesday and agreed on a political roadmap for the country's future, el-Sissi said. A new presidential cabinet will be formed as well as a national reconciliation committee, which will include youth movements that have been behind anti-Morsi demonstrations.

    Morsi's response was not immediately known, but an aide says he has been moved to an undisclosed location.

    At least those M1A1s and F-16s are no longer in the hands of fanatics.

    Watched the speech. Seems to me the only rational part of the government out there appears to be the military. Twice in two years stepping in on behalf of the people. Granted the people did vote Morsi's jackass into power in the first place.

    Not the majority of the people in reality. Just the MoBros fanatics. The media with the tacit blessing of the WH...helped fuel the image that it was the entire country that wanted what happened two years ago.

    A GO running Egypt had allowed it to be an ally for the last 35 years.

    Guess the military didn't want to fight Israel after all. Good for them. Plus Obama's admin has already tossed Morsy under the bus trying to claim this is all more proof of Obama's great Cairo speech and they never supported Morsy. Forget the fact two days ago Obama was warning Egypt's army that if they did oust Morsy, Obama would cut off all aid to Egypt.
