I am perplexed as to the arguments that favor the ex president Morsi who came into Office after the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak by the Egyptian citizens. The main argument was that Mr Morsi was democratically elected and should not have been deposed, however we must note in both cases the provisions of the Constitution were perhaps ignored.

I believe this Administration assisted the unfortunate situation in Egypt. I have never been more embarrassed to be part of this country, as I am now. I love America, but this is not who we really are. God Bless America and Egypt!

Egypt depends on tourism but now because of what is being done to the Coptic minority the tourism is finished-no one will want to go there!

Egypt's internal affairs has become all of sudden everyone's business. It is nice for people to show concern, but who are you to judge what we do?.
If I am not mistaken; The US and its allies (France, UK & Germany to name a few) are responsible for the distraction of Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan.

The solidarity shown by Arab states, led by Saudi Arabia, as well as the world strength of Russia and China will put an end into this stupid mess.

US, & its allies, popularity and credibility is at all time low. This is a moment of truth and opportunity for all “Good Men” to show their true colors.

Egypt,s military coup has caused death and destruction to innocent citizens of Egypt and is fully backed by Billions of USA dollars which is given to Egyptian military to suppress the people.

Although I would not be considered an authority on Middle Eastern conflict resolution, some distinct similarities in socio-political transformations are occurring here as have in numerous insular cultures. Social identity formation or admonition of, plays a key role in such conflicts. In my studies, the absence of and/or retraction of plausible/probable socio-economic self fulfillment/empowerm ent (as enunciated via third part state actors) correlated empirically with violent political activism. In simple terms they are told to become free and rich, and in embellished futility become eternal mortal enemies.

Until women are included in any and all governmental processes, nothing will happen. The hologram, Sister Water, Sister Earth. This also looks to me like an E.L.F. attack, generate the feeling for demonstrations, then switch to paradox mind state- make them riot. Just what military wants. Airfarce (U.S.) is enemy.

All said and done however, the Revolution was hijacked by Mubarak's former political and military lackeys and to secure power the ordinary people of Egypt are paying the cost in blood. The people of Egypt need to understand one thing about revolution. It is won in blood because that is always the cost of freedom from tyranny. You cannot give power back to those you took it from in the first place, Remember Mubarak came from the military. A future Egyptian leader needs to come from the ranks of the revolution itself. This will give you at least the chance to build something new.

All I can see from the comments and actions of the protagonists in this disaster is that both the Muslim Brotherhood and the Secularists are becoming more polarised with each passing day and just was the case in Lybia and Syria society will cease to function and the bullet will become the currency of communication. The Imposition of Islamic values on part of society that was not going to accept them was a mistake by Morsi but brutal suppression of the followers of the Muslim brother will lead to nothing but a sense of injustice and a desire for retribution.

Russia and the world call it a COUP, the WhiteHouse has chosen silence.
They have their reason.


The on-going violence in Egypt is merely for show. All it happens to be is a Machiavellian cold-blooded ruse staged by the three factions (Ikhwan/Al-Nour/Mors i/Torytards, SCAF/Sissi/El Baradei/Libtards, Mubarakists/CentreTo ryLibtards) that Neo-Colonialist powers (NATO, Gulf Kings, Israhell, Ikhwan, South Korea, Taiwan, NTC/GNC-rat infested Libya, Morocco's King, Jordan's King, amongst others affiliated with them) have been funding, sponsoring, arming for decades.

Tha t is the same sort of propaganda scheme used to try to oust Hugo Chavez, and was used by the US to overturn Iranian democracy (..........)


I bloody know right? This is the vile morbidity of our corrupted, hypocritical, decadent Western régimes as well as their puppets. I despise Capitalist-Imperiali st, Zionist, Khawarjite/Qutbiyya elite scoundrels. May humankind defeat them someday.

At first, you must know, it was a revolution not a coup.
then the Muslims brotherhood are Terrorist . they killed many of their supporters in order to show the foreign media that they are victims. please don't beleive their lies . today they burned many churches at upper Egypt. they burned the finance ministry , the local authorities


Ed Camilo 16.08.2013 18:11

Neither Morsi or the the Military have Egyptian's interest at heart. They are both fascists entities competing for control; and , if they decimate one another the Egyptian people will be better off. Then, the Party of Naser can step in and take care of some unfinished business with Israel!


Zac Keith 16.08.2013 18:06

Egypt Does Not Support Morsi.
The Muslim Brotherhood "supporters&quo t; are actors.

Egypt is now fighting a war on terror against Al-Qaeda and other militant organizations that belong to Muslim brotherhood and it's obvious that The US is funding and supporting those terrorists to protect their interests in Egypt. please don't let those killers and barbarians destruct a 7000 years civilization. God bless Egypt


PJ Butler 15.08.2013 22:08

How many christian churches were and are being burnt down since Morsi was elected? I feel no pity for the decreased. They are with their God


Huba Melegh-Rocha 15.08.2013 21:50

I can see already as Israel and US who backed that anti-morsi traitors tomorrow is giving weapons to pro-mursi egyptians to keeping up the chaos there. After a good and long civil war they can put their puppet into power. And then, ready.
