WATCH: Live pictures out of Tahrir Square July 3, 2013.

In response to last weekend's violent protests, Egypt's Supreme Council of the Armed Forces issued a 48-hour ultimatum to President Mohamed Morsi "to meet the demands of the people" or the army will intervene. Morsi came to power exactly one year ago after the 2011 Egyptian revolution brought down former President Hosni Mubarak. Now, the same crowds that flooded Cairo's Tahrir Square in 2011 are calling for Morsi's removal. As the clock runs out, follow the action for the next 48 hours in this space, join the conversation on Twitter with #EgyptABC.

I wish they would, then they could vote him in as President in Egypt's 2nd democratic election in a year. Term limits working in Egypt.

Wow, their mountains are really geometric over there.

Seriously, these are un-photoshopped pictures blaming Obama, correct?

The Canadians closed their embassy a few days ago....closing an embassy is a signal of real impending trouble, something that will not be settled over night....my thought....stop meddling in other countries affairs....

Those folks in the square sure look like they are
celebrating to me.
Perhaps this will spur the Turks to return their
government to a more secular one.

State Department said "Democracy not just about being elected... also about letting the voices in your country to be heard"

So then what was "I won" about? Or "Silencing teaparty by IRS intimidation" or silencing the Press through intimidation and threats, or Brietbart or Hastings etc.

Watching what has to be the largest demonstration in history, now having become a celebration, I'd say the average folks in Cairo are "pleased," to say the least, with Morsi present deposition.

Not much...
The major media won’t show these images to the sheeple. it doesn’t fit the Administration/MediaMatters-approved narrative, and they don’t want to be looking for a new job in the Obama Economy.

The MSM are the first ones who need to be lined up against a wall.
