Appearing to throw its weight behind an opposition that swarmed Cairo's Tahrir Square, the Egyptian military told the country's civilian government it has until Wednesday evening to "meet the demands of the people" or it will step in to restore order.

We should learn from Egypt's example and storm our own streets in opposition to an extremist and fascist element that keeps congress from acting on behalf of the people - the republicans are much too extreme and they're putting our nation at risk!

Perhaps this is a good thing.

Thanks Cal for posting the link to the article and video. The situation has become quite interesting and I will be waiting to see how it turns out. Read, viewed and noted.

Interesting, isn't it? On one hand, you have Egyptians complaining that the government is too theocratic! On the other hand, you have a genuine FIST of militant Islam.

Should be quite a struggle....at least they're still STRUGGLING!

"Morsy, a U.S.-educated Islamist, was elected Egypt's president in June 2012."

Well, that is the first time I've seen his name spelled that way. But this above, I knew. I had hopes that he had picked up some tips on how a democracy works while being educated here, hopes that were dashed almost immediately. It will be interesting to see how this plays out, the Egyptian military is quite activist in these matters and could do just about anything. Agree with Lee, I am thinking it is nearly time for an American Spring given the disregard our House shows for the law (ACA) and our democratic system, refusing to compromise on anything, willing to accept gridlock as a way of political life - and defying the will of the people as expressed in polls on many issues. The best route is to just vote the b@stards out in 2014 and 2016 but for them to think themselves immune to the will of the people, would be a serious mistake, in my opinion.

If diplomats would actually do their job, most of this horror would have been ended. Can I understand diplomats not want wanting to be shot? Of course. This is where the World Court, the UN, steps in and maintains order.
The Brotherhood and Morsi are rounded up for crimes against humanity. Mubark is brought into power, and Egypt starts all over again.
P.S. Gene- it dosen't matter how garbage is spelled, it's still garbage.

He'd better listen to them and step down.

Will definitely be interesting to see how this turns out. And, the U.S. should absolutely stay out of it. I also concur with lee and wish for Occupy to be back on the streets in full force, with hundreds of thousands of more people.

*Notice that Obama is NOT asking Morsi to step down, when 20 million Egyptians are demanding it, yet Obama asked Mubarak to step down when only 1.5 million asked.

Where are Obama's priorities?

For now it is wait and see. But I truly hope that it is the people who win --- not the elites, not the military, not the Islamists --- the people!
