Good for the Egyptian Army. They are about the only sane actor in the country. May they speedily prevail.
Another group of thugs will be in power tomorrow.
Perhaps all those Muslim Brotherhood members who like to scream about how much they desire martyrdom will now get their wishes.
Pretty much the army IS the government.
Total boondoggle. Obama fail.
COME GET SOME!!!
As long as it is Salafist Muslim Brotherhood blood, that's just dandy with me.
Rest assured, I am responding to this crisis quickly. My family and I are going on vacation to Hawaii and other tropical paradises on your money.
CNN clearly taking the side of the Muzzie Bro’hood.
But first, the community organizer has several speeches to give. And fundraisers.

Obviously, every third world country is going to be ruled by crooks and thugs (come to think of it, many first world countries are too, they're just more subtle about their abuse of power).
However, some thugs are preferable to others. Would you rather have a Hosni Mubarak-style thug from the Army running things, who, while corrupt and brutal, suppresses Islamist factions like the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Quaeda fronts while protecting secularists and Christians, or a Muslim Brotherhood thug who is even more extreme and fanatical than Morsi?
The goal of US foreign policy shouldn't be supporting "Democracy" or the fantasy of western style representative governments in the Middle East. Our goal should be making sure that secular strongmen open to trade and diplomatic relations with the US rule these nations.
I guess they figure they can watch them on Al Jazeera TV.
Should have said: I guess he figures they can watch them on Al Jazeera TV.
You have to change your outlook. Just pretend your watching early Coen Brothers movies.
