Supporters Of Egyptian President Say Military Coup Is Underway
NBCNews.com ^ | July 3, 2013 | Richard Engel, Charlene Gubash, Erin McClam

CAIRO — An adviser to Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi said Wednesday that a military coup was underway, that tanks were on the move outside Cairo and that communication with the president had been cut off. As a military deadline came and went for Morsi to step aside, the army took control of state television, and boisterous crowds opposed to the regime cheered and danced in Tahrir Square.

Well, Mookie, maybe you should have thought this through a little better when you rammed Sharia onto a population that didn’t want it, and ignored the fact that 80 million people have a different set of priorities, like food and jobs.

Those rug burns on the MB’s foreheads make good targets.

If Egypt ejects their Islamists and Turkey follows, we might have a real Arab Spring.

And the Arab Spring begins its new season....

This will continue to be a feature of most Islamic countries for perhaps decades to come, and the United States can be a player one way or another on this, or take the role of disinterested observer (?). One way to take part would be to support one faction or another of this bloody internecine combat, shifting support to the side that is for the moment getting short shrift of the battle, or to clandestinely support BOTH (or if more, ALL) sides in the conflict, being their supplier of arms and war material, or by mounting our own expeditionary force. The last is the very worst of options. All the factions would forget their animosities with each other and turn on the Americans with a ferocity unmatched by wild beasts.

But if the US were to withdraw and simply form a perimeter around the kill zone, to keep the battle from spreading to uninvolved bystanders, perhaps this is the better option all around. Meanwhile, the rest of the world’s economy is adjusted to not NEED the diminished flow of crude oil from that region, which cuts the fighting factions double - both in cutting off their funds to continue the fight, and eventually depletes their twisted desire to build a Worldwide Caliphate, as they sink back into truly Third World conditions.

There is a way to play this smart. But do not count upon the Current Regime in the White Hut to pursue that course, or even recognize what that course is.

Yes. I only wonder who is waiting in the wings to take power. It doesn’t seem like there is a leader among the Egyptian protesters that really stands out.

Does anyone have any idea as to who this may end up being?

So our newly installed resident goes to the University of Cairo in his first official overseas trip and dictates to Mubarek to release Morsi from jail.

Morsi is released and all heel ensues. Then blitzartig elections are held and the only political party that is organized well enough is the islamist MB.

Then they write a new constitution guaranteeing control of the party in future elections and control over the entire society.

Looks as though Obama’s foreign policy is up in flames. And John Kerry will not save Obama’s ass from this disaster.

I agree with your assessments, unfortunately including the probability that O'bozo will not be content to stand outside and watch.

He's got his "legacy" to think about, dontcha know...

Yes, drill for oil until we are once again masters of our own energy needs, then tell the MFer’s in Riyadah to start eating sand and, wash it down what’s left of theirs.
As far as I am concerned, that whole damned area isn’t worth one more penny of our treasury and not a drop of our nation’s blood! Sorry that Israel is in the middle of it, but that’s for them to sort out. Support them, but no troops! Besides, the Israeli’s are able to defend themselves if we would just stop supporting their enemies.

Hopefully the second revolution will turn out better for the people than the first one did.

Re: “Is our military taking notes?”

Dream on.

“Our” military has been the subject of an on going ideological and spiritual purge since before the current regime. True Christians (not the UU/UCC sort) and constitutional Patriots have been systematically weeded out while Islamists, Sodomites and drug gangstas have been infiltrated in.

Although it’s been pretty much a “soft” purge so far, I have to wonder about some of the command level “suicides” and scandals, as well as the 23-odd suicides a DAY by active and Veteran military members.

They have “medications” that will drive you to suicide, you know.

I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t think it’s really “our” military any more.

Stalin knew how to coup-proof himself, and Barry knows his Uncle Joe pretty well.

So don’t bet the farm on that option, even though “IVAN” the all knowing has surely taken note of your suggesting it.

Check in next week and let us know if you’re still here, won’t you?

Yep. The Arab Spring Obama, Hillary, Rinos and the Media supported
isn’t looking real stable at the moment. Will they now call for a new Arab
Spring or dig their heels in to support Morsi, against the people’s wishes?

How did “our” Second Revolution (AKA the “Civil War”) work out for us?

Stay tuned.

I don’t hold out a lot of hope for the third being a particular charm for the restoration of Constitutional Liberty, but then again what do I know?

I think there is a reason why America is hardly mentioned if at all in Biblical end times prophecy - which I opine we are witnessing the beginning of fulfillment of right now.

Hosni Mubarak must be looking as good to the Egyptians at this point as George W. Bush is looking to Americans.

And who knows what Egypt’s new kinder, gentler secular dictator will be like?

If the Egyptians still had any money left, someone could make a fortune selling Hosni Mubarak ‘’Miss Me Yet?’’ tee-shirts in Tahrir Square.

NBC? This story is one of those “sun rising in the east” type of stories. Was going to occur, just a question of when...

Still, NBC....anyone heard this from a more reliable source, like DEBKA?

The truth is that the large marjority of folks in the USA military are still center-right.

Those folks you refer too are simply are in a minority, very numbers at that.

The majority of those in the USA armed forces are “center-right,” rank-and-file-wise.

While some of the generals may be of the same thinking as Obama, most are also “cneter-right.”

The ads on those live feeds are kind of interesting - a sampling of Egyptian culture perhaps.
Not all of the women are wearing burquas. A lot of their people don’t look a whole lot different from most of us.
So far on the Yoou Tube one all I’m getting is ads.
