    Of course Muslim Brotherhood will drag Egypt to dark middle ages, does anyone have doubts? And those attacks on Shafiq's HQs, they are not accidental, that's because Muslim Brotherhood is not satisfied that Shafiq entered the second round with their candidate Mursi. So they decided to threaten Shafiq and his supporters by burning his HQs and that's happened just after leaders of Muslim Brotherhood met with US ambassador to Egypt in Cairo... It seems that Washington and Islamists came to a consensus of opinion that they don't want to see recovery of secular regime and annealing of political situation in Egypt. Of course they don't because if any real authorities will rule the country it'll be hard for Muslim Brotherhood or some other destructive forces to split the income from Suez Canal and also from oil and gas fields on the seashore of the Red Sea. I'm sure that Americans and Muslim Brotherhood made a deal, American support in all things in exchange for resources...

    Looks like the military may be taking things over at this point. It'll be interesting to see how the public (and the 'brotherhood') responds.

    Frustrated Egyptians Look for ‘Third Option’ at Runoff Vote
    June 15, 2012 - Egyptian human rights activist and visual artist Aalam Wassef’s latest YouTube video (below) depicts a soldier standing next to a ballot box. With every ballot put into the box, the soldier grows bigger; but in the euphoria of voting, no one notices - until finally they do, but it is too late. The soldier crushes the people with his massive boot, then a logo pops onto the screen: “Boycott the Elections.”

    Obama does not run the nation, Egyptians and the military does.

    obama was highly instrumental in forcing Mubarak to step down. obama is the cause of the continued fighting in Syria, whether obama was chiefly instrumental in the carnage in Libya after Gaddafi was removed from power is doubtful but certainly something liberals love to celebrate.
