the military stayed out of it until it was clear widespread violence was next.

The largest political demonstrations in history have happened over the last few days. Overwhelmingly anti, Muslim Broderbund.





We picked the wrong side again!

Barry has generated an anti American furor in Egypt that exceeds anything his predecessors have been able to accomplish.

Remember, he started his tenure by throwing the Green Revolution in Iran under the bus.

Democracy in the Middle East? Yeah, right. The military in Egypt is pretty
darn sensible. Granted, they favor the status quo but the status quo also
means people can work and get on with their lives which has not been the case
under Morsi. What Egypt really needs is Planned Parenthood.

Just last year the demonstrations were in opposition to the military!


But you gotta hand it to the egyptians on a few counts. First is guts and engagement. Second is being able to spot that they hired the wrong guy. Third is the most important lesson of democracy - vote for who will do the least damage!

These guys are quick studies. Too bad we can't say the same on all counts

That's just flat out wrong.

The Egypt situation is complex, but as best I can tell, it's a country struggling for identity in the wake of a massive change.

Pointing the finger anywhere at this point is premature.

rSin, his name is Bruce, not bruse.

U can do this, just read what you typed before hitting the "post this reply" button once in awhile. People might take ur constant ranting more seriously if you could spell words that are already on the screen.

they better pull the chair out from under their military THIS WEEK as well or this isnt going to mean much...


Next week maybe but right now it seems most egyptians are happy as Jaybirds that the big bad military kicked the Muslim brotherhood out on their asses. That what I meant by "vote for who does the least damage", in this case and at this time,that being the Egyptian military. That Morsi guy was totally bad news, freely elected or not.

Maybe not quite the text book liberal democracy, but then neither is the Muslim brotherhood. I'm just glad there is so much public opposition and they're not shy about it either.

Maybe now they'll be more inclined to vote secular .... something we could learn from as well.

Egypt is f*#ked. I wish I had gone there when I had the chance. Not sure it will ever be a nice place to go in the future.

I guess Barry isn't too popular over there right now.

It's Bush's fault. He kept harping about democracy over there. Please note that the game doesn't even mention Egypt.
