It seems to me that the military realized how much the brotherhood wanted a war with Israel and didn't want to go through that again.  Things have been relatively peaceful for the last 40+ years and they have a nice cushy job, and didn't want to get involved in a stupid little war they can't win. Smart move.

They should stop protesting and build another pyramid.

And why are they calling for street protests? They want the protesters to give them a mandate to crack down on street protests.

But hey, the coup is still a great thing for Freedom and Democracy, right?

If only there were some process to help in determining what a majority of the people want.

A pyramid is a structure in which the outer surfaces are triangular and converge to a single point at the top. But that's not important right now.

Show the world how they can move 20 ton blocks of stone with just muscle power.

He called Gen Sisi "a coup leader who kills women, children and those at prayer".

Well at least we know we can trust the Muslim Brotherhood not to lie or delve into hyperbole.

I'm sure this military coup has been very peaceful, especially for the party that had their elected leader removed.

More folks signed the recall than voted for Morsi.

according to that how beer saved the world documentary... they paid the workers with beer. Imagine there's nowhere else to get beer and the government offers to give you and your buddies a bunch of it if you move a 20 ton block. You'd find a way.

Or at least a Plurality maybe?  Muslim brotherhood won 47% of seata in Parliament.

That hard-on for a war with Israel must have been why they didn't change Egypt's stance or policy towards Israel in any way. First you guys said this happen to protect democracy, now you're saying it was to prevent a war with Israel when there's no evidence such a conflict was on the horizon; what next?

You see that? The military coupists had a list! That sure is a relief. Good thing it's impossible to falsify lists; otherwise we might have grounds to question to validity of all this.

So politicians made premisses to get elected, the broke them for there own agenda. So the military steps in saying "You lied, get out".

Excuse me General?

When I was a kid in the mid-90s, I had a flight sim game where one of the campaigns involved islamists taking over the Egyptian state, and NATO helping the loyalist faction of the Egyptian army to defeat the coup. I can't help but think about that game when I hear news stories coming from Egypt these days, but damned if I can remember what it was.

/Ironically, we end up bombing Libya to assist a coup and now we're talking about bombing Syria to assist a coup there, but Egypt has never been on the list...

Weren't there like 33 million anti-Morsi protesters on the streets of Cairo?  That's about 40% of the population of an entire country.  It's certainly not my definition of a coup.

33 million protesters didn't overthrow or alter the government, the army did.
