    Not that Obama had anything to do with this, but this is a great development. The Egyptian Army is probably the most pro-US institution in the country, thanks to our joint training, exercises and educational programs. They are also pervasively corrupt, but so is the Muslim Brotherhood. We can count on the army to keep the peace in the region, and that's really the critical point. The Egyptian Army is unlikely to intervene on behalf of al Qaeda in Syria, or the Islamists in Turkey. Combined with the mass protests against Ergodan in Turkey, the two most virulently anti-American Sunni heads of state have been deposed or are on the verge of being deposed. With any luck at all, this will spread to Iran.

    Tell you guys, you should check out that Egypt Indy page. Good stuff on it.

    What caused the military to oust morsy?

    "The army's threats to intervene to address the current crisis in Egypt has changed the rules of the game," Gehad al-Haddad, spokesperson for the Muslim Brotherhood has told CBS news network

    "This is like a coup and this kind of threat is altogether rejected," he said. "We are changing our tactics and we have prepared a scenario...to confront a situation as such."

    "If the army takes action on the ground, we have a plan in place to face that."
    Tell us how that "Plan" worked out?

    Al-Ahram reveals details of Armed Forces' post-Morsy roadmap

    The Armed Forces' Post-Morsy roadmap calls for canceling the controversial constitution and assigning specialised experts to write a new one that will take into account the demands of Egyptians from across the social and political spectrum. The constitution will then be put to a referendum after the document receives the approval of Al-Azhar.


    A presidential council composed of three members and led by the head of the Supreme Constitutional Court will be set up to manage the country's affairs for an interim period of nine months to one year.


    A transitional government with no political affiliations will be formed and led by a military leader during the transition. Meanwhile, the constitution will determine whether presidential or parliamentary elections are held first.


    The Armed Forces have secured the country in coordination with security bodies. Weapon caches have been detected, a number of Muslim Brotherhood leaders have been placed under house arrest, and the Brotherhood's funds have been sequestrated, according to the paper.



    Instructions were also given to deal firmly with those who resist these decisions and to put them under house arrest in preparation for trials that could be revolutionary in nature.

    After the Muslim Brotherhood took over, people were like "Way to go. Bad idea." I couldn't stop supporting the revolution though because I figured that we fought for our freedom. Let Egypt fight for theirs. I'm hoping they get in some more reasonable leadership. If not, then I think the fight will persist. It won't be pretty. We won't like watching it (and we shouldn't be funding them under any of their leaderships). Thing is I don't think they'll ever be free until they really fight for it.

    Yeah, I know I sound naive. Oh well.

    Egyptians were angered that Morsi was giving too much power to his Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamists and had failed to tackle the country's mounting economic woes.
    Really? Then why not this:

    Americans were angered that Barry was giving too much power to his Liberal Friends and other Democratics and had failed to tackle the country's mounting economic woes.
    When was the last time we talked about the economy in this country? /end threadjack

    PS - I probably could have left the muzzie thing in there for Barry Hussein too but decided against it.

    Apparently the muzzies are raping like raping is legal. I guess when you've never had respect for women in your 1,300 years of backward existence the raping of them is second nature. GO ISLAM!!!

    What does a Barry Hussein do in this situation? He was all about the Muzzie Brohood uprising back when Hosni was tossed out, so how about being all about the uprising when the muzzie brohood is tossed out?

    Actually, he has to back Morsi in this situation. Has no choice. He also has to put a stop to any military aid that hasn't been delivered yet. Has that been done?

    Better yet, does Barry H. even know what is happening in Egypt? Someone wake him up and tell him please. Not now, he doesn't answer the phone at 3:00 AM and besides, he needs his sleep. Tell him after breakfast. No, wait...after golf.

    He knows what's going on...and he's not the least bit happy.

    President Barack Obama urged Egypt’s military Wednesday to hand back control to a democratic, civilian government without delay, but stopped short of calling the ouster of President Mohammed Morsi a coup d’etat.

    In a carefully worded statement, Obama said he was “deeply concerned” by the military’s move to topple Morsi’s government and suspend Egypt’s constitution. He said he was ordering the U.S. government to assess what the military’s actions meant for U.S. foreign aid to Egypt.

    Quite frankly, we (the US, the US govt, whatever) have to back Morsi in this.

    He is a democratically elected leader in a nation that is an ally. I don't see how we can't back him. We can root and cheer that the MoBro's are scumbags (they are) and got what they deserved but we don't back coup's against allies. My .02

    It creates a precarious position when we have a Trojan horse for president, it would be nice if our leadership was not the enemy.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.
