    So the soon to be Dictator of Egypt was elected in a very close election, and guess what he just did, or is trying to do, make himself Dictator. He is now saying his Decrees have the weight of law, and are not subject to Judicial Review.

    This is what happens when you try and characteristic a shame of an election in a country with no real Constitution as democracy.

    At the end of the day it is their business, not yours. He'll end up the same way as Mubarek. Even the next person might. Sooner or later a reconcilitory force similar to Mandela will come along (not that that has helped South Africa lately) and they'll get it right....

    Morsi is a fucking idiot to say the least...

    Obama made it our business by Encouraging it, and praising Morsi.

    Then there are the fools who thought that democracy in Iraq and Afganistan would make them just like us and actually like us.

    At least in those 2 cases, we attempted to give it a chance to work, Made them adopt a constitution, and had boots on the ground to try and prop it up and make it work.

    This outcome in Egypt was predictable, and inevitable if you ask me. Mubarak was a scum bag, but he kept a lid on the fucking wacktards like Morsi and his bunch, and kept the peace with Israel.

    Obama tried to point to Egypt and Libya both as proof his FP is working, now they both appear to be Proof that it's not. Our Power, and influence in the region is at an all time low, and frankly they simply do not take us seriously right now.

    Egyptian president Morsi just brokered a truce between Hamas and Israel, preventing a wider war with a greater loss of life that likely would have insured that any future peace accord would have been delayed for years.

    But thanks for looking on the dark side of current events just the same.

    If a republican was president they would be full time Morsi apologists.

    Or...

    Egyptian president Morsi just brokered a truce between Hamas and Israel in order to buy time for Egypt to arm Hamas, build up Egypts forces and invade Israel.

    Doubt that will happen, I'm just stirring the pot, lol.
