Isn't it a coup' that brough Mubarek into power?

Do they want Mubarek back?

Its shame! Egypt simply sucks as a nation. It's gotta be the most unstable country in Africa. They can't even handle their own problems and yet they try to start war with Ethiopia over Nile river. It's turning into an other somalia. Ethiopia is much more stable and stronger than Egypt.

Interesting that anti-Islamist American righties are attacking this overthrow and criticizing the Egyptian people for opposition to a leader they themselves have criticized.

Isn't that rather obvious hypocrisy?

And before Obama Derangement Syndrome comes into play, I'd say that I think his policy here was rather poor. He went along with Morsi too much when we should've been trying to push his regime in a more fair and democratic direction.

But Obama was at least consistent - he stood by and let Mubarak be deposed, saluted Egyptian independence and committment to democracy, and then accepted Morsi as democratically-elected ruler. He has to feel that he can't win...

You know what Egypt needs? A blood thirst dictator like their former leader Mubarak! Dictatorship is the only solution to egypts problems. Go back to your Islamic way of living.

Funny how in the last year, one of the things that upset the people was the constant power outs. Every day, two...three tines a day. Since the protests began the lights of Egypt have blazed for all the world to see....uninterrupted.
Also, a little matter of the fact that in this year, despite media criticism, no programming or channels were cut. Within 5 mins of the military coup, all Egyptian cellphones and pro-Morsi televised broadcasts were cut off dead. On facebook, the Egyptians are posting of mass arrests of media personnel.
Just a little something to ponder....

Here's what I meant, nitwit. You posted:

"Its shame! Egypt simply sucks as a nation." - Dimwitted insult

"It's gotta be the most unstable country in Africa... It's turning into an other somalia." - Somalia is the most unstable country in Africa, so you contradicted yourself.

"They can't even handle their own problems and yet they try to start war with Ethiopia over Nile river. Ethiopia is much more stable and stronger than Egypt." - Egypt didn't try to start a war, there was a dispute over access to water from the Nile, which is critical to them. Further, Ethiopia isn't a very stable country in its own right, and is still very poor and backward compared to Egypt.

That make it clearer, genius?

Yeah I agree ethiopia is still poor but this poor nation once destroyed egytian army twice in row during the war that erupted in 1874. And that was Ethiopia without modern weapons. So tell me, if your lame army didn't stand a chance in a fight against ethiopia back then, wha the hell makes you think you can win now? And Egypt is not civilized either. Half of its population is uneducated. And you'll heavily depend on the US aid. Before you say anything else I suggest you go back and dig the history of your country Alittle bit dummy.

And it's not clear yet. It's actually more confusing. You didn't even say a thing on how my post contradicted itself. And one more thing, Egypt only got famous for the pyramids that were built two thousands years ago. Other than that, what else Is Egypt known for? They have instigated many wars and lost each war they went in. Ethiopians are far more better fighters than Egyptians. An yeah Egypt is the biggest US aid recipient in Africa. So do you wanna take back what you said friend?

When a Muslim is involved he will only be left alone to fight for himself, the hypocrisy of the western world has been exposed, they only stand up for their own, but the whole world knows that Muhammed Morsi was DEMOCRATICALLY elected a year ago. Shame on the Egyptian military for this betrayal.

Definitely this is an invitation to those who terminate the life of Anwar Sadat. The Egyptian military will regret this action and the hooligans that brought Morsi government down will weep for their foolishness when they realize that Mubarak has just resurrected.w

Yep, democracy wouldn't work in Egypt. I'm not too fond of Morris either, but he was first democratically ever elected leader of Egypt. Trying to make Egypt a democratic country is huge waste of time. There was never and will never be free Egypt.
