CAIRO (AFP) Supporters of Egypt's ousted president Mohamed Morsi urged fresh rallies on Friday, raising fears of renewed violence as police prepared to disperse them amid international appeals for restraint.
The call came as US Secretary of State John Kerry said the military's removal in July of Morsi -- Egypt's first democratically elected president -- had been requested by millions.
In comments that will be seen in Egypt as supportive of the interim rulers, Kerry told Pakistan's Geo television: "The military was asked to intervene by millions and millions of people, all of whom were afraid of a descendance into chaos, into violence."

Well yes he has. But the important message here is that Obama has decided that it is time for Morsi to discover the view you get when looking up at the under-carriage of a bus.
That is new news.
My question is: Will the military allow the Muslim Brotherhood to post candidates in the upcoming election? I’m starting to think maybe not. Time will tell.
...Morsi -- Egypt's first democratically elected president -- ...Thanks don-o.
