Army chief ousts Egypt's president Mohammed Morsi
The Australian ^ | 07/03/2013

Posted on 07/03/2013 1:42:39 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

EGYPT'S army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has ousted president Mohamed Morsi and declared the head of the Supreme Constitutional Court caretaker leader.

Mr Sisi, the defence minister in Mr Morsi's government, also announced a freezing of the Islamist-drafted constitution and early presidential elections.

He said a "strong and capable" government would be formed and would have "full capacities".

The army chief said a panel would be formed to look into amendments to the constitution and a law would be drafted to regulate parliamentary elections.

After the announcement, delivered by Mr Sisi in a televised address, Mr Morsi denounced the move as an "illegal" and urged Egyptians to "peacefully resist the coup as he himself will do", a senior aide told AFP.

Opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei said the roadmap announced by Mr Sisi "meets the the people's demands for early presidential elections".

The army's dramatic move comes after millions of Egyptians took to the streets to call for his ouster, accusing him of betraying the 2011 revolution that brought him to power.

Some nations are smart enough to correct a disastrous mistake made by a rigged election after a year of misrule. Other nations in the same situation are stupid and lazy.

Hey Morsi, don’t let the door slam you in the butt on the way out.

Notice that the Brotherhood isn’t busting out and going all head-chopping jihad all over the crowds. They slink into the shadows when the wind isn’t blowing their way.

There was a Pro-Morsi rally.... but it was pathetically small:

Exactly. They and their ilk are mere cowards, beheading when they have the numbers but sulking quietly when they don’t.

The American people have provided a lot of aid to the Egyptian people and the Eguptian military over the last 50 years or more.
It would be nice for them to return the favor.

Maybe the Egyptian military leaders could come to America and help their American counterparts grow a set.

I wonder how many ‘refugees’ Obama is planning on importing under the radar. He wants 10,000 Syrians, so what’s another 10,000 from Egypt?

You are right, but I think certain nations sheeple are to comfortable and don't have the stomach for the cost and fear the military will not support them.

Military is a little too powerful when then can willie nillie change leaders. Egypt like the rest of the Muslim world is not in a desirable state. All this tells me is that no matter who is “elected” only the military really has any power

Obama rigged the U.S. election with the IRS and now is importing 100 million leftist 3rd world socialis. Yet we Americans sit down and watch TV, sports, play on our smarthphones

We Americans put up with greater tyranny from Obama than the Egyptians . Instead we watch TV, sports and play with smartphones while Obama and his tyrants in DC enslave us. we don't do this but we could

I will not judge the particulars of the Egyptian people rising up.They still may never know or want any form of Jeffersonian democracy.I will say that I am extremely proud of those people to stare the tyrants and thugs in the eye and say stick it,we don’t want you(or Obama)I wish hopelessly that America will show such gumption and patriotic duty; sweeping the tyranny of Obama and his evil and corrupt regime in the dust bin of failure.

Noted: to Mohammedans and their dhimmis, a popular revolution that can be manipulated to put Caliphate supporters in power is a popular revolution, but a popular revolution that removes Caliphate supporters is a coup d’etat.

Were you there for the taxpayer march on Washington on September 12, 2010? There were plenty of concerned Americans from all over the country there, hundreds of thousands, who all had jobs and spent their own money to get there.

There are plenty of concerned people, we aren't all keyboard warriors playing with our cell phones.

So Obama backs the ouster of the guy who kept Egypt stable for 30 some years in favor of his Muslim brotherhood kin. Gives them money, arms, and support (I mean the US taxpayers did), and now a year later he is gone?
Everything Hussein touches turns to shiite, and years after his treasonous ass is living in his 35 million dollar Hawaii mansion and retired, we will still be dealing with the wreckage of his usurpation.

At least Carter backed a violent, deranged anti-American thug who had some staying power, and we got to fight him and his kind to this day.

Crap, you know you suck when your anti-American terrorist thug you back to try to destroy your country only lasts a year. He’s making Carter look competent, and that ain’t easy to do, even if his compentency is in destroying his own country.

Well, Obama, here the new eleventeen star Supreme Admiral-General presently running the nation of Egypt:

I guess you can call to congratulate him at any time, Mr. President. I'd recommend getting your embassy staff out of Cairo first before you lose another ambassador through incompetence.

_____________________________

You really are wise. When you have the tanks, jets, semi automatic rifles you are in charge. The military in Egypt is not non profit. They control a big chunk of construction and other industries. With the 1.5 Billion in aid we send them. It’s all about the money and control.

It is absolutely amazing the way our Founding Fathers wrote the US Constitution. It was divinely inspired. Normal men (or women/LGBT/handicapped to be PC) couldn’t think of this.

As much as I can disagree with George W. Bush’s policies...see Medicare Part D and amnesty... he was right about one thing.

It’s great to live in a country where power is handed over peacefully. Even Hussein Osama can’t ruin it. Checks and balances.
