The Egyptian military is prepared for this. After seeing the HUGE outpouring and demonstrations against Morsi last weekend (and, OBTW, more people were killed during those protests than during these today), they acted and are doing so with the backing of the people.
If Morsi's supporters and the Muslim Brotherhood push them...they will absolutely eradicate them. They will not play "footsies" with them or try to have ROEs that attempt to "make friends."
They know what is at stake, and saw where it was going. Morsi was supporting Al Quida and the Al Quida rebeles in Syria and Libya. He was closing ranks with Hamas and preparing for war with Israel.
The Egyptian military and most people in Egypt do not want to go there, and will not go there. They know what it is likely to mean. They will fight the Islamic extremists and Muslim Bortherhood in Egypt first, and eradicate them before they let that happen.
This is what we are seeing in Egypt...and it is likely that these Islamic extremists will push it to a fight...one they will lose becuase I do not believe the Egyptian military will fight with kid gloves or with one armed tied behind their back.
A strong, in your face, and abject example needs to be made of these radical terrorists and Egypt has the means, and I believe the will, to do so. I pray they do...and set Obama and his cohorts, abettors, and handlers back by decades and give us time to regroup here and show them all the door ourselves.

The Muslim Brotherhood has lost face. Their counter protests are too small to be taken seriously by Egyptians, which in turn has cost them their support by Qatar...and that will in turn hammer Hamas in Syria.
They gave al Qaeda MANPADs.
They gave al Qaeda weapons.
They are trying to give al Qaeda WMD from Syria.
Treason is in the air, but only seen in Egypt,
and Africa, and Canada, and Europe, and....
BUT NOT IN AMERICA because the MSM is owned by Obama.
Always good to see your insights. You know, they are still killing each other in Iraq. I realize the Egyptian army is light years ahead of Iraq, but isn't this just ripe for insurgency?
Thanks for your input. It certainly appears from my obsessive reading the last week or so that the Egyptian people really, really do not want the Islamic craziness.
This is the way to fix things - plan ahead, get numbers, and make sure the Mil is on the right side.
There was a thread from Walid Shoebat earlier in the week saying there was evidence that Morsi’s people were sent to Benghazi to kidnap Amb. Chris Stevens. I hope (if it’s true) that the new gov’t makes it public.
