Where is the MSM? They were all over this when it was Mubarak.
Our media is covering for TERRORISTS!

Egypt needs a Pinochet, and come to think of it, we could use one too.

Hmm,

since Morisi and the radical islamic MB sacked all the generals and replaced them with his stooges, a tactic used and implemented by obama btw, then this sounds like a full on Morsi dictatorship putsch

Egypt was our strategic reserve. I think there are as many M1 tanks in storage over there as there are in active service with the US Army.

To be sure, Carter and Obama had less than a complete grasp of the events and their importance concerning Iran and Egypt.

However, it's complete folly to believe that portion of the world (islamic culture in general) is available to diplomatic and democratic ideas in the first place.

I'd like to believe that notion would occur to those in power outside this forum, but I'm less than hopeful.

Well, I guess a visit to his friend Morsi during his african vacation is out of the question now for Il’Douchbag.

The good news is that Ubama owns it and regime-change here could repair the damage and bring about a true Arab Spring.

Not quite that many, but they certainly have a good number of them. They are not 'top-of-the-line' models but if given adequate maintenance they are good tanks.

However, speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that a HUGE percentage of those tanks are below standard condition, or even inoperable, due to the traditional Egyptian/Islamic attitude towards Preventive Maintenance. In other words, 'if God wantss the tank to work, it will work'. Back in the late 90s I saw perfectly good tanks roll out of the assembly facility in Egypt (they assembled them from US_made kits), only to reappear at the depot a month later on a trailer, completely inoperable, because the locals did no PM and actually removed the dust screen from the intakes because it kept clogging.

The US Congress supports Islamic terrorism
and those that give them weapons, and thinks
that by hanging out at their banks and brothels
they have plausible deniability. They do not.

911 is forgotten and is now a ‘workplace accident’.
Hasan’s terrorism is a ‘workplace accident’.

It has not mattered that they crucify, enslave, rape,
rocketkill and/or behead innocents INCLUDING Americans,
the US Congress has acquiesced to, supported, funded,
and weaponized al Qaeda and Islamic terrorists
over the American people that elected them.

This is the most treasonous disgusting US Congress
in history.

And now you see the visual evidence as to why the corrupt MSM is silent on a national protest of 17 million people!

Score another victory for that Nobel prize winner, Obama. Were it not for the continued propping up by the corrupt MSM this loser would have been sent packing.

A complete and utter disaster, not only for America, but for the rest of the world. A plague.

My friends still in Egypt (from when I had done some contract work there) told me this was another story the MSM pretty much missed or ignored. Morsi and company did attempt to sack and replace most all field-grade officers and the General Staff and was quietly told 'that is not going to happen' by the military. They did manage to replace a few officers, but it was not the full-on mass replacement the Islamists were hoping for.

What you say about democracy and Islamic culture also holds true for democracy and Hispanic culture. Probably a residual effect of 700 years of Islamic rule in Spain. Think of the terms ‘alcalde’ ‘caudillo’ and ‘caliph’. Both cultures are dominated politically by the willingness, almost the need,for the people to follow a strong man.

Unfortunately obama is successful in sacking Generals and replacing them with his goons.

They’re too busy covering Zero’s $100 million African vacation, replete with that “moment of reflection” in Nelson Mandela’s old prison cell. BTW, the BBC is describing today’s protests in Egypt as the largest in history, with hundreds of thousands gathered at multiple locations around the country. Meanwhile, CNN is dismissing the protests—and threats of a coup—as nothing more than a minor, internal matter. Wouldn’t want anything to knock Barry and Michelle’s excellent adventure off the front page.

Hobama doesn’t have a clue and what’s worse, his advisers are equally clueless. Readers will note that SecState Kerry was trumpeting his “breakthrough” on the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks last night, as Egypt tottered on the brink of total chaos. At this point, I’m sure someone in the White House political office is scouring YouTube for a video that can be blamed for the current crisis in Egypt.

One more thing: one banner has been prominently featured at the various demonstrations in Egypt; it’s the picture of the Dear Leader, with the title “Obama Supports Terrorism” in Arabic and English. Any bets as to the number of times that banner shows up on a US network—other than Fox News?

Welll, Pinochet, I don’t think so. Unless you want your neighborhood surrounded by army in the middle of the night and all adult males pulled out of their homes for impromptu interrogation.

Just saying there might be other routes to ending our national nightmare.

For instance, are Egyptians just better organizers than we are? How did they get the numbers of protesters we see? Imagine that on the Mall.

Libyan intelligence directly links Morsi to the Benghazi atrocity. Maybe that’s why State is so quiet. MSM, on the other hand, is just waiting for orders from the White House on how to deal with this. Baraq is out of town. Is Val home?

I can offer a similar story about F-16 maintenance in the Egyptian Air Force, as told by a Lockheed-Martin rep. One of their instructors was providing an intro level class on the jet’s avionics. He removed a couple of exterior panels to access some of the line replaceable units, then excused himself (briefly) to go to the other side of the hangar and get an item he needed.

When he returned, he found the Egyptians had removed several more panels and were practicing nailing them back in place. Of course, the panels are secured by specially-made fasteners, but the EAF techs figured what the heck, a hammer and nails will work just as well. In the process, they destroyed several LRUs and generated thousands of dollars in damage, paid for by the US taxpayer.

The EAF has a few decent pilots, but their maintenance is absolute crap. It’s probably a good thing they (typically) get destroyed on the ground in the opening stages of a conflict, because they don’t have the capability to generate significant numbers of sorties over a period of days or weeks. Of course, the Dear Leader has us on the same path, with about one-third of the combat squadrons in the Air Force and Navy now grounded by sequestration.

I think they finally ran through their kit backlog - supposedly the latest deal that Obama pushed through after Mubarak was removed was half kits, half completed tanks (50 or 60 of each) - the kits did not have the DU armor enhancements and some other goodies found on US-issue M1A1s, but I think the complete tanks they have either just gotten or are to get soon are US-issue tanks with the full suite of goodies.

The head of the Army there is a US Trained General. I dont think he would be worse than the MB. There are so many US trained folks in the Eqyptian Military, I don’t think there is a ton of support for a fanatical Islamic government there without wide, wide public support.

I see this as very serious. But I do not see it as bad.

I strongly suspect that Morsi was gearing up for an eventual move in that direction, and the military is in the process of forestalling him. They may have, behind the scenes, been responsible for the demonstrations.

Morsi is at heart, an ideologue. The military leaders are more realistic, and certainly do NOT want to see 90% of Egypt's productivity, such as it is, damaged, if not destroyed outright.

What we see in the news (such as it is) is more than likely illusion, masking the *real* issues at stake, which if truly known would terrify most people in the implications...
