DrunkWithImpotence: 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


Yoshi Toranaga: "There are no 'mitigating circumstances' when it comes to rebellion against a liege lord."
John Blackthorne: "Unless you win."

- From the novel "Shogun" by James Clavell

Somacandra: There are more than two sides to this story. Far far more.


No doubt, but given that the current party in office is pretty Islamist leaning, I'd like to have the hope that the majority protesting don't think the only way forward is to go full retard in that direction instead of towards becoming more secular.

I suppose it could happen, in which case I'd just say all of the decent people should leave Egypt and let it become the next Afghanistan, if that's what they want.

You elected a bad guy? You get a do over in 4 years.

There is a difference between "I don't like your public policy, so here's a coup" and "You're systematically eliminating anyone in government that could say no to you and rewriting the Constitution to suit your needs, while organizing attacks on Coptics and other Muslim sects."


Sounds like their Constitution sucks if it allows a sitting President to change things so easily.

KarmicDisaster: Who are we supposed to be rooting for here again? I need a scorecard to tell the sides apart. One weird thing about all those people demonstrating; no women. Any women venturing out would be attacked and raped by either side; what a great culture, huh? Really hard to sympathize with either point of view.


Horseshiat. There are lots of women in the anti-Morsi contingent. They are in pictures and interviews I've seen and heard in Western media.
 
2013-07-03 02:49:50 PM  
So, a democratically-elected leader violates the country's constitution, then says it doesn't apply to him, the population challenges his actions and legitimacy en masse, and then the military says time for a do-over.

The U.S. should work so well.

RealAmericanHero: No doubt, but given that the current party in office is pretty Islamist leaning


The Muslim Brotherhood is actually a loose confederation of different sub-groups, some of which are more Islamist than others. The historical fact is that secularism has a really bad reputaion in Egypt precisely because its associated with the Mubarak dictatorship. It is not associated with political or personal freedom. Its a fundamentally different experience with secularism than in the United States. You can't expect them to interpret secularism as "freedom" in some American sense.

Like it or not, anybody who gets elected in Egypt from now on will get the message: "Yes the Constitution applies to you too. You campaigned on a platform. You don't get to take it easy now that you won the National Popularity Contest. Now, your work begins in earnest."
