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.

Morsi’s wife is Huma’s mother

“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.

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.
