This is an attempt of a full Islamist takeover of Egypt. We should know within days if it succeeds.

Additional details can be found on Debka (this one time, seemingly accurate).

Sadly, it seems that Obama succeeded... :(

Uh-oh. Going to be watching this one closely. Somebody needs to - our current State Department is a clown car circling the tent and beeping loudly.

We are seeing the beginning of a new caliphate.

Correction: we are seeing the beginning of the next huge Middle East war - precursor to potential major nuclear strikes on US soil - with BHO’s blessings. Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has called his final war council before the coming war - saying in will come in weeks. but maybe as late as October.

The M-60s mentioned in Debka are no threat to Israel. However, Egypt does make M1AIs under US license and has several hindered of them.

weird how the media ignore this failure much like Libya which I might add is till on going.

Exactly what has he done on foreign policy besides saying OK to get bin Laden which I might add again why does Hannity always heap praise on obama for that and call it a brave decision?

Foriegn policy has been, gas is going up again but yet again you’d think the economy and all issues were great and the best the countyr has ever seen

If there is a war, it is best for us to stay out of it. If Russia wants to get involved so be it, let them lose millions of troops. Israel will always be protected by God with or without us.

.....and yet many here will put Obama back in office in November by failing to vote him OUT! This will be just the tip of the iceberg if he stays in that oval office!

The poseur Obama’s “true patriot” Huma Mahmood Abedin is telling Hillary Clinton to support this move by Egyptian President (and Muslim Brotherhood member) Mohammed Mursi.

I suppose Hillary’s response to Huma will be “oh, yes Huma...oh yes, yes, yes, YESSSSS!!!”

It's not just Obama. We have the Democrat party to thank.

In a radio interview last week with WBAL in Baltimore, Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, D-Maryland, claimed that the Muslim Brotherhood had changed and was now a “force for moderation” in Egypt.

I’m confused. Why is this not getting more U.S. media attention?

“If there is a war, it is best for us to stay out of it.”

However, it is hard to stay out of a war when our bases in the Middle East and in Isreal have been hit hard ... by Iranian missiles and Syrian chem weapons. Russia is on the Arab/muslim side; they will lose no troops to the Arabs, since the Russians are their largest supplier of weapons, outside of Iran.

Not to mention our naval ship losses and sailors in the thousands. There is as yet no proven deterrent to Iranian small boat swarm tactics, and the latest naval incident - Aegis Class destroyer being rammed by a tanker - does not inspire confidence in our navy's commanders in the Gulf.

Don’t worry, be happy. It is possible to live without the internet, believe it or not ... besides an EMP burst will take out everyone’s internet. And again, it is possible to live without electricity for the years it will take to rebuild the grid ...
