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
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.
