Cairo (CNN) - Egypt's military deposed the country's first democratically elected president Wednesday night, installing the head of the country's highest court as an interim leader, the country's top general announced.
"Today, only one thing matters. In this day and age, no military coup can succeed in the face of sizable popular force without considerable bloodshed," wrote El Haddad, who works in the office of the assistant to the president on foreign relations. "Who among you is ready to shoulder that blame?"

It's better than these people live under dictatorship, It's exactly what they want and what they should get. They were calling for democracy for 40 years, they got it and now they destroyed it. It disgusts me to the gut to see Morsi leave his post. No doubt that there is foreign interest involved, especially Mubaraks old buddies.

This is the biggest thing that irks me about the topic,
Miltary coups are bad, but they are totally acceptable elsewhere.
So why are the not 'acceptable' here in the west?
Like it or not Morsi was 'democratically' elected should have never been but hey 'mob rule', and all that jazz.
Guess 'democracy' is just lip service when 'elected leaders' do things people don't like.edit on 3-7-2013 by neo96 because: (no reason given)
