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
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.

Hope you are correct.
Unfortunately obama is successful in sacking Generals and replacing them with his goons.

Interesting about the Egyptian military and their attempted sacking by Morsi. Indeed, the MSM did not report that.

Though I do not have 'friends' in Egypt, this is my understanding as well, that Morsi, and his Islamist goons weren't able to get the military as 'clean' as he would have liked...

That is extremely good news; I thought I’d read something like that.
