The military in Egypt is wise to prevent the islamic extreemists from attaining power. The irony is that in the call for democracy the Egyptian people are voting for these extreemists.
Look at Palestine, the world called for them to be a democracy and elect a governement. The Plaestinians did just that in what the world community viewed as a fair and open election process. The drawback was that the Palestinian elected Hamas. As a result America and Israel do no recognize Hamas as the legal government of Palestine even though it was democratically elected by the Palestinian people.
