    State of Emergancy declared in Egypt!

    BBC News - LIVE: Egypt police move on Cairo sit-ins


    police are moving in to break up the protests! Should be a violent and bloody day.

    Sky news cameraman shot dead. Yet again showing how dangerous their jobs are and the sacrifices they make everyday to bring us the news.

    Yep, the " Arab Spring ".

    We had a friend over there once, who kept the Muslim Extremist in Check, and who was also a partner in our fight against Islamic Terrorist.

    Now, Obama laments the rising violence and destabilization of a Country that was once considered an Ally to the US.

    And it's only because he knows the situation is to far gone for him to take credit for it.

    It seems that much of the region is seemingly in emergency mode most of the time these days. As much as I hate to say it, maybe they were better off with dictators. At least it wasn't keeping the whole freaking world in a state of unease.

    Nothing to see here folks. This is not a coup. There was not an unjust declaration of power by the military ending democracy in Egypt. Keep sending aid.

    While I dont approve of kicking out a democratically elected government per say, what the Brotherhood was doing was as undemocratic as it gets. Not only did they rail-road a non secular constitution through, but they basically introduced even more nepotism into the system. I fully support the military on getting rid of the previous government and I suspect that the first to shoot were in fact the Brotherhood supporters and their terrorist backers. Why do peaceful protesters have to put up massive barricades and have automatic weapons? Why do they have women and children in those camps and them saying that they wanted to assure that their children had a place in paradise?

    No this is all the Brotherhoods fault pure and simple. They created the problem, and have reacted badly with violence.

    There was a reason George Washington said we should mind our own business.....
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Giving weapons and massive financial aid to the Egyptian military is hardly minding our own business.

    That's like saying Saddam was a friend because he kept his people in check. Sorry, but that place is screwed up regardless of who is in charge.
