    Good for them. I'm glad the protests are continuing and people are partaking in the democratic process in Egypt.

    I'm certainly not surprised. There are just too many different groups in the ME who seem to really hate one another.

    The protesters are setting the headquarters of the Muslim Brotherhood on fire.

    Good thing we just sent Morsi all that cash for his military...

    Do you think the Muslim Brotherhood got control legitimately in the first place? I'm quite skeptical.

    I think that's the crux of the issue though. Morsi was elected through the democratic process. Is demanding his ouster at this point really democratic?

    (I don't know the answer - that's a genuine question).

    This situation is going to head further south quickly.

    This is good if it stays relatively peaceful.

    Bad if it doesn't.

    If it gets too ugly, the military might take over (VERY bad)...and the whole thing could start again.

    Absolutely. Protesting and making demands is always apart of the democratic process.

    No, I don't. All the more reason why it was utterly foolish for this administration to send military aid to Egypt.

    This protest has all the earmarks of being the good one, the one we should be supporting. It is in support of Democracy and opposes Islamic Radicalism. These are our potential allies. Will this president be able to admit his error and dump Morsi in favor of our natural allies? Nothing I have seen from him in the last 5 years says he can, but I can still hope.

    Uh oh.

    Egypt on edge after army ultimatum

    'Egypt was on edge Tuesday after a "last-chance" ultimatum the military issued to Mohammed Morsi, giving the president and the opposition 48 hours to resolve the crisis in the country or have the army step in with its own plan.'
