By the photos out right now? Pro-Morsi forces look to number thousands. Anti-Morsi Civilians number in the multi-MILLIONS and they have the full force of the Egyptian Armed Forces behind them.

Some may die..but they'll be majority Mulsim Brotherhood and sympathizers to the Jihadi elements. In other words, it's a safe case of NHI.


Go Egypt! Clean your System! I've always wanted to see the Pyramids ..and days like this give me hope those folks may enjoy a stable enough nation again to make such a trip possible without taking out terrorism insurance on a 50/50 chance of needing it.

I'm sure the Turkish people and government are watching this with great interest.

Aaah...they got him...probably hiding behind his office chair playing "invisible". Damn it must suck being a sock puppet when the puppet master abandons you.

Attention U.S. Military... please do the same thing here. It's high time to do your sworn duty and protect the people from the domestic terrorists in Washington.

If Obama follows suit of the last few issues that have come to light, we probably wont hear from him till he has read it in the newspaper, as it seems that's where he gets updated from lately. So, he "Probably doesn't know" yet... (sarcasm over).

I like others do hope there is little innocent blood shed over this, but it is sure nice to see people get off their butts and do something about what they dont like. I can think of a country that could learn a lot from them... sigh...

Military Coup? In most nations, I'd call that horrible news....and a true tragedy for the people.

In Egypt? It's the best news I've heard all week for the civilians. They have an odd thing in that nation. They have a military which seems MORE loyal to "the people" as a group than the civilian leadership appointed to lead them.

Doom on Morsi..and his chances of living through this probably depend on how many orders he issues to kill civilian protesters. If he's going out in a blaze of glory, so to speak? I'm sure the military will supply the blaze for his pathetic glory.

Here's hoping it's fast, decisive and very final for how it ends, if this is what's happening.


I don't know Wrabbit. I'm not a fan of Morsi but if the military takes over......It could get just as messy if the military leadership does not relinquish power to a civilian government.

This may not be all that great, but we will see.

I agree with your concerns and I hope you're wrong on this, right along with my own fears. What gives me some hope and confidence is that this will be the 2nd time within as many years that the Egyptian Military has had to take power and national control.

It's fair to say the end result of the last attempt didn't go well, by what we see in the street today. Then again, fairness requires we note Morsi did come by free election, following the removal of Mubarak and not military selection. So.... Hopefully, they'll do it again and just clean the decks so the civilians can come along and repopulate the place with leaders they can follow?

Funnily enough a last minute scoop on BFM TV says that the USA spokesperson (no names apparently mentioned) say that they are "very preoccupied with the current situation in Egypt and that propsositions from Morsi are insufficient"

Kindest respects

Let's hope. My fear is that since this is the second time the military had to intervene, the leadership may lose confidence that the civilian population cannot govern themselves effectively and may take matters into their own hands.

We've seen it happen before.

Better military authoritarianism than muslim brotherhood getting messages from god and sending them to the people.

Morsi urges Egyptians to resist 'military coup,' after offering to form unity government and amend constitution; at least two dozen killed since demonstrations began, including at least 16 dead and more than 200 wounded in Cairo clashes.

Yeah things are developing fast now. By next week we ll have a full fledge civil war, or, Morsi forcibly retired by the ppl and the army, lying on a sickbed beside Mubarak, who will laugh at him and whisper; "Karma is a bitch!"

I disagree. If the people elect leadership and form a government based on a certain religion.....that is their choice. Personally, I wouldn't like it but I am lucky enough to live in America where we have the documents in place that give us the right to separation of church and state.

The military is designed and trained to kill and conduct war operations. They should not be in the business of civilian governance. I'd rather see a theistic government be put in place than a military dictatorship.

As I type the military is taking charge and there is going to be another election? What confuses me is that they recently elected Morsi and are not giving him a chance to allow the new government to develop and flourish.

I must admit I am laughing here at that. Gotta get those butts covered asap eh? I am noting though, that we are not hearing it from the horses mouth directly. Seems nothing has been done "enough" so far to warrant that. I wonder what has to be done "on point" to get a reaction? Death and destruction no doubt.

Thanks for posting that up though, Im still kind of tickled!

I checked the White House site earlier and it shows Obama and Family arriving back at Andrews AFB last night. Nothing on plans today for his schedule. I guess that means he's taking a day off after a grueling vacation. Hard work being 'The One', I know.

I guess it also means he can't later say he was terribly busy with some major pressing commitment if we lose the Cairo Embassy or something. Can't claim he was asleep or Joe was distracting him with a silly matter like national business.

He ought to be able to give Egypt his full attention. God help them all.
