    We have an impeachment process for an out of control president. Apparently Egypt does not.

    CAIRO (Reuters) - The head of Egypt's armed forces issued a declaration on Wednesday suspending the constitution and appointing the head of the constitutional court as interim head of state.

    In a televised broadcast, flanked by military leaders, religious authorities and political figures, General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi effectively declared the removal of elected Islamist President Mohamed Mursi.


    What happens now in the Egypt?

    How exactly did Obama influence the elections or the initial revolution in Egypt? how did he put the brotherhood in power?

    What happens now in the Egypt?

    First thought: the entire region is nuts but you have to give some respect to the Egyptian military. Unlike so many Middle Eastern governments where the military is used to carry out acts of war and brutality against their own people, the Egyptian military supports the people above all. That's very American of them. Kudos!

    My second thought is I'm very frustrated what happens in Egypt, Syria, Iran or Libya is tied to our national and vital interests.

    Do you think backing Morsi with Clinton and Kerry writing up Infrastructure bills for foreign aid might have something to do with it. Uhm you don't recall Ginsburg going over there and telling them they should model their Constitution after the South African one. How about Kerry wherein he wanted to witness Democracy in action and flew over there to watch Egyptians vote.

    Did you think this was not in the Neo Lib ideology and ran lock stock and barrel with the Neo Con policy?

    What country in this region, aside from Israel, has shown itself capable of anything but this? It's just who they are and what they do.

    You mean right after we were attacked on our own soil for the first time in our nation's history?

    Sounds like a fair point. LOL
