Saiga410: Hmmm I have always wondered what a military coupe looked like.  I never would have imagined it looked like a Kubelwagen.


The tanks are hatchbacks.  Or hatchtops.

wxboy: I was just scanning through the Wikipedia articles on this and found this (properly sourced) quote by Obama from two days ago:

Now, obviously, we've been watching these big protests.  Our number-one priority has been making sure that our embassies and consulates are protected.  Number two, what we've consistently insisted on is that all parties involved -- whether it's members of Mr. Morsi's party or the opposition -- that they remain peaceful.

I guess he learned his lesson from Benghazi.


Benghazi in platforms?

Morsi offers to form coalition government

(aljazeera)


Oh yeah, NOW he wants to form a coalition when the military basically dog-collared him.  24 hours ago he was saying "Up yours" to his opponents AND the military.

"On 22 November 2012[4] Egyptian protests started, with hundreds of thousands of protesters demonstrating against Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi, after he granted himself unlimited powers to "protect" the nation,[5][6] and the power to legislate without judicial oversight or review of his acts.[7]"

devildog123: buckler: I sometimes wish our military had the same resolve when Bush the Lesser was in power.

You do realize what party the large majority of military personnel vote for, right?  I'll give you a hint.  Walk into most military gyms or PX food courts with TVs, and they will be tuned to Fox News, or maybe ESPN.  The military is just a tad more conservative than you seem to think it is.


Yeah, I know. I was, when I joined, liberal-leaning, as I am now. It's one reason I never engaged in political talk with anyone except those I knew personally and trusted.

YixilTesiphon: Corvus: bsharitt: Surely democracy will work next time.

Well it took the US 10 years from the declaration of independence to the US Constitution, so so far they are under how fast we did it still.

And it took us 90 years to eliminate slavery, 150 years to allow women to vote, and almost 200 years to mostly eliminate overt, uncamoflauged attempts to deny non-whites the vote.


Right I am just annoyed at these people going "OMG the middle east countries can't be perfect democracy in a year, they never can do it!!!"

durbnpoisn: Mrbogey: I'm sure America will condemn this illegal coup.

Though it might give us a chance to get in a more radical Islamic president who'll finish off the non-muslim Egyptian population for good.

Not sure if serious.

How is this illegal?  Aren't all coups illegal, if that's the case?  Isn't what we did to the British during the Revolution illegal?

I think my point is, there is no reason to make a distinction here.  Legality doesn't apply.


"A rebellion is always legal in the first person, such as "our rebellion." It is only in the third person - "their rebellion" - that it becomes illegal. " -  Ben Franklin in 1776

AverageAmericanGuy: Satanic_Hamster: AverageAmericanGuy: Great. A military coup.

I'm sure that will bring peace and freedom to Egypt.

You'd biatch about it either way, that's for certain.
"Wah wah wah, Muslims have took over Egypt."
"Wah wah wah, military has removed the Muslim dictator that was fairly elected, wah wah wah."

Yes. Both of those are pretty shiatty outcomes, I think.

Morsi's job was to help formulate a new constitution. The anti-Islamists wanted nothing to do with the process, and now are pissed that they were left out. For the most part, Morsi has been a pitiable bystander in watching his country get torn apart.

Think of Morsi as Obama and the protestors as the House Republicans. The ideals may be different, but the tactics are very similar.


The ideals aren't even different.

One group wants a secular democracy, and the other group wants a fundamentalist Islamist dictatorship. I don't see how it's hard to pick a side, unless you are really suggesting everyone anti-Morsi is a rapist.
