By now, one would think that ‘riot police’ would be using a variety of dyes and a slippery soap-solution in water cannons, so as to at least impede protesters. If they can’t stand; there’s not much danger or damage at risk – add the advantage in arresting members of unruly crowds. (Red stain used on the Monday protesters; blue on the Tuesday protesters, etc.)

This is a tragic development. Egypt has always been a place where the military has never wanted to take orders from civilian government, but if the military wants to rule over civilians in Egypt, it cannot ever do so without a democtratically elected civilian government that it must take orders from as a matter of law. But once a President is finally elected, guess what? It will end up issuing orders and the military will once again refuse to accept those orders because they feel that they are the only true leaders of Egypt when they got their ass whipped by Israel over and over. Egypt military only likes to fight defensless civilians and pick on its own citizens in Egypt that are armed with nothing more than rocks and low level weapons, because they will not fight anyone that can defend themselves with proper armaments like Israel. Maybe Morsi should partner with Israel, becuase I guarantee you if he returned to Egypt with an Israeli army, the entire Egyptian military would be wiped out on the spot because they are cowards and criminals with guns, and not brave soldiers and even the weakest of jews can take out entire battalians of Egyptian military. Any military that can wage war against its own civilian population is a coward military, and I pray Israel makes sure that not one Egyptian military official remains if they are provoked to enter a civil war in the entire region upon the collapse of Egyptian nation due to brutal massacre of Egyptians by their own military.

“Egyptian army threatens to shoot violent protesters”

Yeah, that will calm things down. Start shooting your own people in the streets. And here we had written the middle east off as a bunch of dark-age bigoted morons.

I will never myself agree with any groups who want to push their Islamist ideals (Sharia law) on the world. The Muslim Brotherhood is selfishly ignoring a place in the Government and therefore they don’t deserve to have a part in it. For them it is “We rule!” and only us! or there will be chaos.
The Brotherhood needs to accept the offer or take a hike!

The military junta should be resisted by all means possible. Time for tyrants or buffoons is over. This Al-Sisi fellow must be removed and the army restructured. Morsi should have fired all those greedy generals at start of his tenure, he made an error to leave the Mubarak machine in place
