Egyptian security forces, backed by armored cars and bulldozers, moved on Wednesday to clear two sit-in camps by supporters of the country's ousted President Mohammed Morsi, showering protesters with tear gas as the sound of gunfire rang out at both sites

At this point, I don't think a large percentage of people know what the hell they want.

Noted and thank you. Agree many don't know what they want, but also many don't want Morsi returned to power. My biggest concern is America getting involved n an internal matter.

The Muslim Brotherhood is the worst thing for democracy in the 80 countries in which it has a substantial presence, and that includes the U.S. Egypt will do the world a favor by humanely making sure this organization does not get any power, because it does and will always abuse it.

Egypt is on the brink of civil war because, like other Arab countries, they are unable to come to terms with the true meaning of democracy. It's an alien concept for them and, like equal status for women, will take generations for them to come to terms with.
In the meantime, as others have suggested, we need to stay out of this mess.

It is not my place to tell Egypt that they should not elect a MB leader, but I do know that Morsi was much more tolerant of protests than this new Military dictatorship. Some food for thought: Morsi was elected by a larger percentage of the Egypt population than Obama was of the US population. Only half of the US even bother to vote anymore, and only half of those people voted for Obama. US has the worst voter turn out in the 1st world and a two-party corporate-media controlled system that reflects nothing of a true democracy. Citizens of the US don't vote because they know their country is completely bought and controlled by wealth. The world is run by money, and interestingly enough, the Egyptian military is primarily funded by the USA. The Egyptian military leader was trained in the USA. Why is it that all the least tolerant, most despotic governments in the Middle East: UAE, Egypt, Bahrain, Kuwait, are all funded and armed by the USA? And every time a Middle Eastern country has tried to elect a leader of its own, the USA has stepped in to have him removed and have their own puppet put in his place? How naive are readers of Care2 ?
