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.

I wish it was fatal but there are so many of the little buggers that it would take a disaster of Biblical proportion to finish them off. In the meantime, they slit each others throats, eventually they will come for ours. All we can do now is encourage them to keep killing themselves for a few thousand years. I am actually banking on the Chinese to finish Islam off in another 80 years or so.

"So, you see, they never really need and official reason for violence and mayhem, it's all in the playbook, Koran."

Of course it is. "Kill all those who don't believe".

"Why do muslim fanatics deem martyrdom desirable/admirable when they are killed attacking infidels but not so when they are killed by their fellow muslim fanatic?"

It's a Shia/Sunni thing within the Islam theocracy. Kinda like the difference between a Catholic and Protestant. Catholics go to heaven; Protestants are supposedly not welcomed, according to the Catholic Church. Not to say that Christians are like Islamists. Just letting you know the difference. As for me, let them kill each other all they want. Keeps them busy so they don't attack Western civilization.

Personally, I have no use for any organized religion - never had. Who really knows what is behind this Universe? I'm an agnostic. Although, will say, that Christians are some of the nicest and most tolerant people I've known. I live my life according to most Judeo/Christian morality beliefs. The same beliefs that founded this great nation.
