    I suppose you have some way to back up this claim.

    Since you can't refute my statement.

    Would your first thought be "I'd like to try and govern this?".

    The military has played it cool, and I think they'll continue to do so.

    Yes they may have pressured Mubarak into leaving, but that's a good thing.

    There's nothing to refute. Your argument is flawed to begin with.

    Your disbelief in the Egyptian army's intentions are guided by fallacious reasonings.

    You know that, how?

    I could say that your coonfidence in the Egyptian army is naive, but I don't know that.

    So, we're left to offer our opinions, agree to disagree and refrain from insulting one another and using the typical, "you're wrong!...uh...just, because...".

    There's 80 million people in Egypt.

    If 3 million people showed up in Washington and demanded that Obama step down, do you think he should pack his **** and leave?

    I know it because you stated why in post #1752 in this thread (http://www.debatepolitics.com/breaki...post1059279593)

    Of course you won't notice the fallacy: Proof by example - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    You gave a few examples where a DICTATOR who controlled the military said they had the peoples' best interests in mind. Is that how you would describe the situation in Egypt currently?

    I hope they do and everything comes up roses. However, we can't ignore the reality that that may not be the case.

    Interesting irony in the far-right's panic over the Muslim Brotherhood:

    "After all, in the United States it is axiomatic that Islam is inherently opposed to democracy and that Muslims are incapable of reconciling democratic and Islamic values. Never mind that the same people who scoff at the notion that religion could play no role in the emerging democracies in the Middle East are the same people who demand that religion must play a role in America's democracy. Ironically, one of the most vocal proponent of religious activism in politics is Mike Huckabee himself, who has repeatedly called Americans to "take this nation back for Christ" and who, while running for president, proudly declared that "what we need to do is to amend the Constitution so it's in God's standards."

    The fear is simply in the name.

    If they were called the "Brotherhood of the Care Bears" no one would care, but throw "Brotherhood of the Muslim Care Bears" into the equation, and it's RUN FOR THE HILLS!

    If they have won over the military with their cause as was the case in Egypt, then yes, I think he should pack his bags and leave.
