CAIRO (CNN) The Egyptian military opened fire on supporters of the deposed president, Mohamed Morsy, and the Muslim Brotherhood, early Monday, killing more than 30 people.
The health ministry put the number of fatalities at 34, and said 200 others were wounded.
CNN counted at least eight bullet-riddled bodies and up to 40 wounded at the chaotic emergency facility in the Egyptian capital, down the street from the site of the shooting. The upper bodies of the victims appeared to be peppered with shotgun pellets and bullet wounds.
Doctors tended to the victims, performing surgeries in many cases before shipping them out to other facilities. Egyptian flags were draped over those who did not survive.

Oh yeah, here come out all the stops for Morsi... ‘Bullet ridden bodies’ are suddenly something to use as a description, unlike anti-government protesters who died ‘while attacking troops.’
Human rights folks condemning the military, while ignoring the nearly 5 times the casualties from anti-Morsi protests... And of course, the photos switch to troops standing in a line, vs pre-Morsi removal where it was pictures of angry men.
But the crowning touch? Now the hospital apparently has a stash of Egyptian flags to place over the bodies, rather than body bags... Or probably more accurately, another made up fact for a CNN report. Oh, I’m not saying that Egyptian flags aren’t ending up on bodies, just sincerely doubt that the hospital is the one doing it.
Real revolutions aren’t easy.
Obama HAD to have his Muslim Brotherhood..
Pro Morsi demos threaten al Sisi, burning of Christians.
The military said it was forced to fire when an "armed terrorist group" tried to raid the headquarters. An Interior Ministry statement said two security force members -- a lieutenant and a recruit -- were shot and killed.
The Egyptian military has shown remarkable restraint over the last couple of years in all of this. It would seem apparent that spomething other than large crowds, even large crowds throwing things and fighting with others, provoked the military.
Someone opening fire on and killing the military personnel would certainly do it.
Now, the Muslim Bortherhood is already calling this the "Cairo Massacre."
It's obvious that the military was provoked, probably by the MB themselves, and they did it in a crowded protest so they could ensure a high body count.
The MSM will not report this...and you can ebt Obama will trot someone out, perhaps kerry, maybe even himself, to talk about the brutal Egyptian military that hijacked democracy in Egypt.
What was hijacked was Obama's disasterous, fundamental ISlamic agenda, and it was hijacked by the Egyptian people themselves, supported by their military.
Watch this video:
Just as the Muslim Brotherhood planned. Cause a violent clash, get some supporters killed and look like a victim. Works almost every time in the Middle East.
Would not be surprised if the deaths were actually caused directly by Muslim Brotherhood “militia” firing on their own supporters.
Mursi supporters killed a Christian priest and burned down the homes of Christians all over Egypt this weekend. Where’s that story? 200,000 Christians have been forced to leave Egypt because of Mursi this year and Obama and Hillary are silent.
Surely hope Egypt gets back on track, quickly. Too many beautiful people there and far too many historic sites for there to be long term disruption.
Need to stock up on those bullets (made in the USA)that have pork infused into the ballistic paint...
It’s nice to have a civil war going on where I can cheer on each side with equal amounts of gusto!
Can we then say that the Egyptian Army is simply doing mercy killing with a certain benevolent flavor to it? Just so they don’t create a virgin shortage. Wouldn’t want mohamed to have to share a virgin sheep. I’m still not seeing a problem with these boneheads murdering each other. As long as they are working their way back to the 8th century they have a little less horsepower for causing us grief. They can let us know when they are ready to civilize.
How many of the bullets fired by the military were in response to shooting from the MB jihadists? We have seen the latter shooting at people in several videos.
‘It is always good to die as a Martyr (SHAHID) because you can always claim that the folks who sent you to heaven were the tool of an Infidel or related to an infidel or a cousin of an infidel or a member of a corrupt regime sponsored by the infidel...in other words you can always justify being martyred via some infidel connection. Maybe a Sunni things a Shiite is an infidel too?’
An 18-year-old suicide bomber blew himself up and appeared before Allah.
He said, “Oh, Allah, I did your bidding, but I have a request. Since I’m only 18 and spent all my time in terrorist training school, I never was with a woman. So, instead of 72 virgins, can I have 72 prostitutes?”
Allah regarded him for a moment, then replied, “Actually, the 72 virgins are here in heaven because people like you murdered them before they could experience the pleasure of sex. So you’re here to service them. Since they’re virgins, they’re quite sexually hungry; and frankly, you’ll be on a constant and very exhausting duty.”
The bomber responded, “Well, I guess I can live with that. How hard can it be to keep 72 women satisfied for all eternity?”
Allah replied quizzing, “Who told you they were women?”
I know people in the Egyptian military and Americans who have trained them.
The Egyptian military is prepared for this. After seeing the HUGE outpouring and demonstrations against Morsi, 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 Brotherhood 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 because 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.
ERADICATE SHARIA LAW
AMERICA AT THE CROSSROADS OF HISTORY
You may have identified Islam’s fatal flaw. Hatred begets hatred, and they wallow in it.
If Muslims truly want to die as martyrs, then why aren’t they happy when they get killed?
I believe it’s because they truly don’t want to die as much as they want to kill. Getting shot down doesn’t fulfill killing in the name of Muhammed, so they are unfulfilled.
