What? Obama’s handpicked successors to Mubarak aren’t popular with the people?

I expect any minute for Obastard to come out and call for an end to the coup and demonstrations.

I saw this graphic on another thread. A great breakdown of the 'playas'. And you're right, they're all nasty.

I particularly love the part of this graphic that separates the 0bama admin. from the interests of the U.S. and Israel. And how he is a backer of the MB, Hamas and AlJazeera/alQueda.

I keep waiting for Mohammad ElBaradai to reappear. He’s a global socialist “moderate” muslim who can paint a happy face on the march to the caliphate.

I wonder if Mubarak’s deposed Generals will resume their posts.. Perhaps a young, 30-something moderate will take power.. This might please the protesters. Nice to see Morsi (and 0bama’s anti-American/Israel foreign policy) go bye bye.

The world does not want to live in a seventh century caliphate. Nobody wants Obama and the moslem brotherhood to run anything. Maybe this is the turning point - maybe the push back starts in Egypt.

This article makes it sound like all those millions of people want Morsi to stay and will fight against the military. If the military ousts Morsi i would think most of them will go home. They may not want military rule but thats the only way they will get rid of Morsi.

If you pay attention, you couldsee that the current events in Egypt are the reset button.

The people, the business community, and the military have had a belleyful. Military coup grts headlines but the actual event is merely renewing the status quo ante brotherhood

The money and the military have always been the power. The people finally caught up.

We are witnessing an anti-Muslim Brotherhood demonstration that surpasses prior anti-Mubarak demonstrations. To break the Muslim Brotherhood at this point in Egypt will have far-reaching effects throughout the Arab world that will greatly benefit this nation. Yet this nation's President is siding against the Arab people in favor of an organization that is the enemy of this nation.

There are no good guys here. Bad guys killing bad guys. There is no outcome here that results in an Egyptian version of Jefferson, Washington, Franklin, Adams etc...coming together to bring forth a great nation.

The only outcomes here are an islamo-fascist government and a lot of dead people.

An Amerocentric view of these events is all wet. America is simply not required.

The whole point is to return to the meager prosperity that existed before. People carry on like Egypt is dead without America. Look around...... Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Dubai, Abu Dhabi They all employ thousands, tens of thousands of educated Egyptians and contribute greatly to the economy.

The Gulf Arabs need a strong reliable Egypt to shore up the eastern flank of the Arab league. That’s what will result. That influence far outweighs any American pittance provided by a weak Obama government.

this will leave a mark on obama here in the USA.

With who? The low information voters? They don't have the first clue that Obama had anything to do with Mubarak's ouster, Morsi's election, or the subsequent nationwide fallout of installing the Muslim Brotherhood in power.

This incident will only leave another mark on Obama with those who are already totally aware of his disastrous meddling in Middle Eastern affairs.

Best thing to do is let events take their course and suspend aid to Egypt,Islamist rule isn’t wonderful but neither is autocratic rule.

Especially as said autocrats often have relatives living in the states,with the means to support similar behavior here.It isn’t in America’s interest to support coups because it removes the wrong people from power.

Cutting the aid package would be the sanest thing to do.Afterwards if the Egyptian army wants to try to maintain and satisfy those protesters,then let them try.Chances are Egypt will continue to descend in Chaos and Israel will stay safe.

“Last June Hillary Clinton described the Muslim Brotherhood as “peaceful,” “committed to nonviolence,” and described them as committed to democracy. Clinton admitted that the US State Department was in talks with the group. This was less than one year after the Muslim Brotherhood officially declared “Jihad” against the United States.

Here is the actual credo of the Muslim Brotherhood. “God is our objective; the Qur’an is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader; Jihad is our way; and death for the sake of God is the highest of our aspirations.” Does this sound like advocates of democracy?”

With Obama’s great love for the Muslim Brotherhood, I’m a little surprised that he didn’t intervene to stop the coup. Must be his advisers told him it was a losing cause
