    Awesome. If I was poor, uneducated, and Muslim, I would protest, too. So many people from Egypt work in the Gulf States, like Saudi, that they must protest to show the piety to get paid. LOL. The region is, has been, and always will be in turmoil.

    These islamists are highly dangerous. Once they gain power they will destroy democracy and will never want to relinguish power. Now they are claiming they are fighting in the name of democracy. If you disagree with them once in power they will bump off or assissinate ato eliminate any liberal, secular opposition. Just look at Tunisia at how Islamists/muslim brotherhood eliminate opposition

      You are right. Unfortunately Obama is doing the same historical mistake against Egypt by supporting The moslem brothers. Of course the real Islam is totally different.

      Split your country but never talk about Egypt. Lousy Obama and Israel never imagine that your scheme for dividing our country as u did in Iraq and Sudan will succeed. Keep your hands. away from Egypt..your scheme for dividing egypt has ended ,, vanished,,, so go to Hell. Your scheme with Morsi and his terroristic group MB has been discovered to all Egyptians and that's why we rejected Morsi the traitor..Obama save millions of dollars of American taxes that u spend in supporting terrorism in middle East. Be sure Egypt will never be Syria or Iraq .

    President Morsi may not have done justice to his party's historic mandate, especially in light of Egypt's tradition of being less rigid than many other states in the region, but a stable democratic order cannot evolve if the Muslim Brotherhood and other, more orthodox groupings are kept out of power. The military is best seen as an umpire, not an active participant. Egypt's large population, relative lack of hydrocarbon wealth and widespread poverty do not afford it the luxury of a prolonged period of instability, which would also hurt tourism.

    I ask you to have a good insight on what the Egyptans are asking their army .we are asking to stand against the terrorists of the Moslem Brothers.we don't want our country to be a jungle for the fanatics from all over the world,killing ,terrorizing our people and dividing Egyple which is the only state in the world with the same borders.we appreciate the American friendship and hope the Obama administration willncorrect its policy in supporting the brothers.this a bad policy for both Egypt and US national security,Egyptians swear ,will remain united,women and men,Moslems ,Christians and others,for ever.

    We, Egyptians, all what we want is to have a transition to democracy that suits us and understands our needs.
    We don't want any dictations from anybody. We ask from the world and the USA, specially, to understand our country's siututaion. Also be fair in its reports and not to take sides, specially - channel.

    A country never recovers if they hang the legitimacy on idle for any reason. Democracy is the last best found system in the world, and the elected is the legitimate. You Egyptians will learn it whether in peace or in bloodshed in the end. There is no other way like some of yours claim. "The MB are potential danger and we do not like their offer and do not want want them" argument is nonsense. Wait the ballot, win if you can. But never talk about the numbers gathered in Tahrir. The numbers are in ballot box, no other way.
