CAIRO: Struggling to subdue continuing street protests, the government of PresidentMohamed Morsi has approved legislation reimposing martial law by calling on the armed forces to keep order and authorizing soldiers to arrest civilians, Egypt's state media reported on Saturday.
Morsi has not yet issued the order, the flagship state newspaper Al Ahram reported. But even if merely a threat, the preparation of the measure suggested an escalation in the political battle between Egypt's new Islamist leaders and their secular opponents over an Islamist-backed draft constitution. The standoff has already threatened to derail the culmination of Egypt's promised transition to a constitutional democracy nearly two years after the revolt against the former leader Hosni Mubarak.

0bama will do this within the next four years.
Of late, Remington published an ad addressing that issue.
This isn’t going to work out well for Mr Mo.
Quick, fix your tin foil hat, it has a hole in it.
There’s too many guns in the right people’s hands in America for that to become a reality. Chill, Will.
It's pretty obvious that 0bama is patrolling the world map and installing the figureheads which the United Nations needs to impede America's global influence.
Nothing a few hundred high-flying armed U.S. government drones can’t fix, eh?
Note also that when he misbehaves so badly, suddenly, out of nowhere, he arrests a supposed conspirator in the murder of our Ambassador Stevens.
0bama’s severe lack of judgement has opened the Islamists pandora box.
Many Americans will die due to his arrogant ineptness.
This will be much MUCH worse than Carter with Iran...much worse.
Beck and Hannity had the “arab spring” nailed from day one and before that. Our president, State Department, and even CIA did not. Neither did all the foolish talking heads of ABCNNBCBS and the NYSlimes,etc.
The Muslim Brotherhood is angling to unite the Islamists in a bid to take over the world starting from this rebuilt base in the MidEast.
Twenty five million people took to the streets of Egypt over the last twenty-four hours and violence erupted with unconfirmed reports of people being killed as well as many injured, in fighting between the Islamists and the secularists.
There has never been a civil war in Egypt and certainly not in the context of what Isaiah 19 describes in the opening verse:
Isaiah 19:2 And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbor, city against city and kingdom against kingdom.
And here’s one of them.
WELCOME, MR. MORSI

Life went on day after day,
Egypt’s now found a new way.
So Welcome, Mr. Morsi
‘Cause Islam’s the faith I love
and it’s here to stay.
The only good dictator is a dead dictator.
Old Boss, same as the New Boss...except the Old Boss was pro-American and left Israel alone.
Mohamed Morsi has two choices. He can either stay holed up in his palace worrying about Molotov cocktails hitting him in the head, or he can come to America and take a teaching job at Berkeley or Harvard, where his biggest worry would be which publisher will offer him a better book deal for his memoirs.
For the next four years I would take a benign dictator over what we have in dc
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
Will American cops and soldiers refuse to commit crimes if they are ordered to do so by Obama?
During the Rescue Movement in the 1980s, only two or three cops in America refused to remove people who were preventing abortions from taking place. I.e., thousands of American cops who themselves understood that murders were being prevented removed the people who were preventing the murders. I.e., thousands of American cops freely chose to make themselves accomplices to murder because they were instructed to do so.
Anyone who thinks that “Americans won’t ‘just obey orders’” is a fool.
Morsi’s wife is Huma’s mother
Captain Renault... Paging Capt. Renault. Please pick up the white courtesy phone.
“Many Americans will die due to his arrogant ineptness.”
If only it were ineptness. It is intentional treason and destruction of this country.
My thoughts also. Obama will watch this closely to see how to herd the mob into his FEMA concentration camps.
Barack Hussein’s hand picked successor to Mubarak is sealing another victory against America in the war gasint terror.
Bronco is working out his stratergies.
Humas mother, Saleha, was one of those leaders. Little attention has been paid to the other 62 leaders, however. One of them is Najla Ali Mahmoud, the wife of Mursi. Both are members of the Guidance Bureau, which proves fallacious, the claim that Najla is just an innocent and naïve spouse.
This would make Humas mother a close, personal colleague of the wife of a virulently anti-Semitic racist who has officially been declared the first president-elect of post-Mubarak Egypt. Mursi also sat behind a Muslim cleric at a presidential campaign rally before the first round of elections, nodding in approval as the cleric enthusiastically informed the crowd that under Mursi, Jerusalem would become the new capital of the next Caliphate.
and we are sending that country fighter jets and 200 Main Battle Tanks??
No, when the time comes to "snap fingers", the crisis that it solves will have been initiated, groomed and promoted over previous months and years. Indeed, the calculations involved (or, should I say the choreograpy involved) know that the level of crisis severity needs to be matched with the severity of the solution. The basic theme, though, is that to solve the problem, most of the American public will be supportive.
In Obama’s mind, its only okay for Governments to use force if the Islamists are in charge.
Meet the new boss,
Same as the old boss
The source explains that the photo was sent to one Dan Andursen, a Dutchman, form the Coptic Church with the words: "tell the Americans what the Muslims do to us!".
I could not find an English-language source, but in this case it is hardly important.
“The major difference is that our military will not shoot their mothers, fathers, etc. They will turn on King Obama and his communists pigs.”
One would hope you are right. Unfortunately, history and precedent do not agree. Recall the WWI vets and the “Bonus Army” in 1932, when General Douglas MacArthur ordered US Army troops to attack those veterans and their families.
Robespierre beheads aristocrats (and plebs) over trifles. Stalin purges. Castro, too. Morsi follows their shining example. How surprising. Now let’s pick sides in Syria. We’re bound to get it right sooner or later.
Budget cuts, made necessary by the fact that those mean, stinky Republicans won’t ok unilateral debt-ceiling hikes, will require a suspension of elections, dissenting broadcasts (FCC), and interstate travel. Remain at your jobs. Carry picture ID to work. This is merely temporary, and strictly routine.
“Theres too many guns in the right peoples hands in America for that to become a reality. “
2nd Amendment is strictly deterrent against federal encroachment. The Federal government has nuclear bombs, not to mention tanks, missiles, submarines, fighter jets, and crack troops with lifer officers. If the federal government is no longer deterred, and actually decides to take over, you will need not only armed citizens, but armed citizens who will commit to fight, watch their families massacred in reprisal and keep on fighting against a vastly stronger foe.
“These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier, the fair-weather patriot will not long be with us” (or something like that; quoting from memory) - Thomas Paine
Look for the Egyptian military to start arresting a bunch of their own high and middle command BEFORE they take sides. Remains to be seen which side they will take. It all depends on Queen Hitlery’s orders!
24 hours after she left Egypt, Morsi announced himself Pharaoh! The Pharaohs’ mummies must be having a cow about the ancient empire that they left is now ruled by a cow.
The protesters represent the military/business. The military is on their side
Our military is having exercises to practice searching house to house for ‘weapons dealers’.
Meanwhile in Egypt they sell our military products to a guy that opposes Israel, promotes Hamas and is silent on crucifixions
clitorectomies female religious pro islumic mutilations and kill anything/anyone not muzzard enough.
Will we quietly go to the prisons and starve as the left continues to demonize the moral folks while ignoring their intolerance
Hizbollah and the propaganda machines continue to demonize almost exactly like Hitler did to Czechoslovakia and the country is in debt to the Chicoms while the boy king spends $1.4 billion annually on vacations while Egypt kills their own and jews with American made products bought with American sent billions
When is the dictator going to listen to "we the people" or will the Lenin/Stalinesque purges begin to carry us away to the gulag archipelago as they close the churches and hiring the homosexuals, muzzard B-hood, and the new dark skinned panthers to break down our doors and our public school indoctinated children or the neighbors children turn in their parents on flag.gov and attackwatch.com.? When? Why?
Who...the journalists are silent as the Jews and Christians are murdered throughout the world. How long O Lord, how long?
Sorry, too much to write in this blitzkrieg of immorality and all out murder while spending us( the US of A) into a pit of no return as folks watch TV, play x-box games and spend their welfare checks as the hollowpoints are piled higher and deeper just in case.
I can't keep up, but that's the plan isn't it?
I am also of the opinion that the army - at least half of it, if not more - will attack their own people. This is casually happening all over the world, for thousands of years. Right now Syrian army is killing Syrians; Egyptian army is preparing to kill Egyptians; every civil war is like that, and we already saw quite a few in this century. The hope that the US Army will all desert has no foundation in fact. I can accept that, say, 10% to 20% of soldiers will disappear over time, if they can do so. The rest will not be given a chance. One man cannot easily escape from guarded barracks; if captured, he will be shot in front of other soldiers as a lesson. Mass desertion is possible only if it is truly mass desertion, when large groups of troops - guards and officers and all - quietly walk out without a single shot and nobody tries to hunt them down.
you will need not only armed citizens, but armed citizens who will commit to fight, watch their families massacred in reprisal and keep on fighting against a vastly stronger foe.
That is a very difficult choice to make when the alternative is to accept slavery and submit but stay alive. People can choose fight over slavery, and they did that on many occasions in recorded history. But that requires very serious commitment, the willingness to die for one's beliefs. People also on far more numerous occasions submitted to the force, especially if the new oppressor was not too harsh. (As an example, a lot of Guerilla movement on Germany's Eastern front was instigated by cruelty of Nazi troops. They were worse than the communists! That's what forced locals to resist, not just the propaganda of the old regime.)
Given that the majority is ready and willing to drop their pants at the TSA checkpoint, I do not really expect a sufficient number of people to seriously oppose the government. But low numbers of opposition, as well as uncoordinated actions, will allow the government to label them as "militants" or "domestic terrorists", and the soldiers will be more willing to eradicate them, in the Branch Davidians' style. The soldiers will be, generally, taking the side of the majority. We already know who the majority is.
On the other hand, insurgents are usually a minority. Most colonists were loyal to King George III, but the rebels were more passionate in their rebellion then the loyalists were in their opposition to rebellion, had very talented leaders, and eventually help from France. Same holds with the revolt against the British Mandate in Israel. It was carried out by a small, but well-organized and highly motivated group of “extremists”. Being a minority has the advantage of tight organization, and intimate bonding between the band of brothers as one fights against severely daunting odds. Being a majority means that you have a large organization that is permeable through espionage, raids, inattention and defections. So often the advantage is with the minority.
” practice searching house to house for weapons dealers.”
I missed that, where was it?
“crisis severity needs to be matched with the severity of the solution”....
That is the way it always is, do not let a crisis go to waste. Throw the frog in and slowly bring on the heat until your frog is cooked.
Of, course we can take bigfootbob’s advise and just “chill”. but I think we need to think beyond this cold future and plan on when Zero nears the redline of issuing his order to his brown shirt brigade.
