    The Muslim Brotherhood won Parliament and the Presidency. Yet on the eve of the election for the Presidency, the government wrote decree giving the military basically governing power and stripping most of the President's power! They say it's only "temporary," but when in the middle east (or anywhere) does a military grab power only temporarily and give it back. Especially when giving it to your rival. Don't forget the military has been fighting the Muslim Brotherhood for decades!

    The second move after the win was to dissolve the Muslim Brotherhood Parliament!

    What do you think the response from radical Islamist will be? I doubt they take it on the chin and walk away. I believe it's a powder-keg ready to be set off. The spark will come and then we will have a Syria situation!

    Civil war? I don't think so, I just predict the Egyptians will elect the MB to power and become more of a shit hole than it already is.

    They elected a President and before the results were in the Generals stripped the Executive Branch of all it's powers, then they disbanded the Parliament and call for new (most likely rigged elections). The Muslim Brotherhood won both the Executive and Legislative Branch.

    The Army has been at war with theMB the last few decades. I doubt the terrorism loving MB will just take it on the chin! No way!

    I don't think the Army there has the will to start killing Egyptians in mass like they are doing in Syria, the Egyptians will elect an Islamist to power and live happily ever after in their shit hole.

    Actually the Egyptian Army more than has the Will and Might to do it. Rather it was Murbarak that instructed them to stand down. Murbarak is the reason it Egypt didn't end up like Syria. See the West media and the Obama regime slandered Murbarak. All the call for him being a dictator were erroneous. He kept the Islamist at bay, he kept peace with Israel and the West, he protect the large Christian minority safe, he protected women's rights and he refused to go on a ASSSad killing campaign when he had all the tools at hand to do so!

    Murbarak was one of the few brave leaders in the Arab world!

    Obama's Arab Spring has so far been a disaster.

    Mubarak was nothing but a puppet dictator backed by the U.S. and kept in power by the CIA.

    He wasn't popular with the common Egyptian people and needed to go.

    For good or bad; Egyptian citizens should be left alone to chart their own destiny for their country.

    If it means civil war; so be it.

    Then once that's settled; they can unite against their real enemy....Israel :cool:
