putting the country on the brink of civil war is the ultimate stupidity. the test of wills has an (F) grade. the onus is on Mursi. he started it with a miscalculated constitutional declaration which scared everyone about his intentions. now it is his duty to diffuse the situation and step back and blink.

Egypt’s hard earned democracy is at a critical junction. Will the Tahrir Square be the “Tienanmen Square” of Egypt? This is for Morsi and the Egyptian military to decide.

@Irishs – That nearly insane rant of yours is amazing to me. You need some serious Christian counselling. We have Obama, Hillary, and a few European mental midgets to thank for this fine mess. Egypt appears to have been doing alright until the changes forced by the West. Mubarak could not use the military to stop protests but Mursi can? The people of Egypt want freedom not an Obama selected group of thugs to run their country. It appears that everything Obama touches turns to ????? Egypt is a mess, Libya is a mess, our economy is teetering, and what’s Obama doing demanding that the debt ceiling be raised AGAIN. We have to stand against this little guy until he can pack and leave the White House permanently. Most Americans will be busy struggling so they won’t notice and the time will go fast.

Jefferson’s “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants”. And it doesn’t matter if the “tyrants” are royal, military, dictatorial, or religious.

It is an awful decision to risk your life for your country’s freedom. But if one wants your children to be free to be who they can be, tyrants who stay in power by imposing their will on personal actions will never give up willingly. It is difficult watching an “Arab Spring” so full of hope, be trampled by those who stole that hope. The Egyptian people have to summon the courage, or submit to a religion determined to turn the clock back a millenium. Either a George Washington or a new Dark Ages will be born soon.

Looks like the Egyptians may regret what they wished for in the LAST uprising (this summer).

The enforcement of religious laws by the state is inherently unjust and can never be otherwise. Good luck to those Egyptians who oppose the Brotherhood. You will shed blood for a righteous cause. War is coming.

Looking at the photo’s, it’s obvious that the Military has thrown in with the Muslim Brotherhood making the Armed Forces of Egypt a Militia wing of the Muslim Brotherhood. That is how anyone should approach working any dialogue with Egypt’s armed forces. Also, America….as happened with Egypt’s Armed Forces can easily happen with the U.S. Armed Forces under Obama, and the Armed Forces be used against the American People just like the Egyptian Armed Forces are being used against the Egyptian People.

Anwar Sadat was killed by the Muslim Brotherhood in a Power Grab. So what did you expect from them today? Puppy dogs and roses. Good luck with Sharia Law. You ask for it now you have it.

the problem isnt with the US, or Europe or whomever the zionists are.
the problem is with these countries…who treat there own people like crap, and when they get upset….they roll out the tanks… these leaders are afraid of freedom of thought and of expression. You cannot
make everyone agree with you. so why bother. democracy is the best virus of all time.

The Egyptian brothers deserve what they got.
They did not want to learn from Iran and allowed an Islamist gain power. The religious believe they are acting on behalf of the god – therefore the nation is doomed with theocracy. Maybe someday we all learn that.

“His Islamist supporters say the decree was necessary to prevent Mubarak-era judges from interfering with reforms.”

Although there’s reason to be concerned about corrupt Mubarak-era judges I think Mursi has gone too far and will need to soften the decree.

So, if the Egyptian army start killing it’s fellow citizens on Mursi’s orders will there be outrage to match the outrage over Syria. This is the Muslim Brotherhood that Obama love during the so-called Arab Spring he was so fond of.
