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.
