President Obama did not use the term coup'etat when the military overtook a democratically elected government. If he had done so it would have automatically triggered a prescribed response by the US which includes withdrawal of all aid. The issue is that officially the USA promotes Democracy, but what to do when The Brotherhood is elected? Remember Hitler was freely elected....Obama failed to act decisively and all hell has broken loose! We should have said, this is what it is and while we do not support this man, we support the elected Presidency, we will not abandoned Democracy in the area. So in my opinion, we should have withdrawn aid at the time the military took over the fight from the people and expelled the President. Prior to that we should have watched to ensure that the next election took place as the law prescribed. The risk of course being the establishment of a terrorist state where an ally used to exist.

Unless there is an atrocity we should support the democratically elected president.

the 'atrocity'(s) already happened with previous treasonous presidents and continues!
We have 'wars' that are unlwful since they are undeclared by Congress as they are supposed to be and the U.S. is Not supposed to be GloboCop.
The last properly declared war was 1941.
We have 'money' that's unlawful as of 1933 and that 'Emergency' declared by FDR of 3/9/33 that's never been undeclared by any prez but continued thru unconstitutional Executive Orders and includes martial law takeover plans with detention camps all set up and ready
I could go on about the atrocities which effectively make our federal govt. a sham and unlawful
There's a reason the prez and ALL public servants take the oath to the Constitution- it's supposed to be followed-but it isn't

BTW- ewe apparently don't know what kind of govt. we're to lawfully have according to that legal document in Article 4 section 4, and it ain't no damn 'democracy'! READ it to see what kind of govt. we are to be and then google to read about the difference between that and democracy which which literally means mob rule
Read what Jefferson, Adams etc. all had to say about democracy as a form of govt.

talk about atrocities, and bringing up Hitler...Hitler and gang had their own parliament building the Reichstag burned down and falsely blamed Poland as an excuse to go to war
The CIA and gang had 3 towers taken down in NYC with explosives and thermite and the Pentagon hit with a drone bomb and blamed that CIA creation called al-Qeada
'Invisible Empire' the excellent documentary

What is happening, is Egypt is trying to prevent a fundamentalism and extremist Islamic take over in likes of Al-Qaeda.

The military doesn’t want the country going back to the stone age...

The U.S.'s closest Middle East allies are undercutting American policy in Egypt, encouraging the military to confront the Muslim Brotherhood rather than reconcile, U.S. and Arab officials said.

Egyptian security forces detained backers of ousted President Mohammed Morsi last week in Cairo.
The parallel efforts by Israel, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have blunted U.S. influence with Egypt's military leadership and underscored how the chaos there has pulled Israel into ever-closer alignment with those Gulf states, officials said.

A senior Israeli official called the anti-Muslim Brotherhood nations "the axis of reason."

I think the Republicans would act against the long term interest of the USA ust to make Obama look bad. It is clearly what they are doing with Egypt.

They want the Taliban running the Egyptian military and the great country of Egypt...

Course, the Taliban looks likes the fundamentalism Republicans...
