    The one red line that could be drawn is to hold as unacceptable the wanton killing of hundreds of largely unarmed protesters by an army intent on proving its willingness to act, that has been on display these last few days. Except for the US and the EU, the other major powers do not worry about these things.

      Agreed!
      If this part of the world wanted 'western' democracy, let them fight for it. OR not.
      I don't think they want what we are trying to sell.

      With apologies.

      The House of Saud and neighbors have resources to spare should the Egyptians want help.
      They don't want us except to blame or to feed our young and out treasure into the mill.

      There is no way that the Egyptian people could have waited to the next elections. The economy was in a nosedive. I wish we had a process whereby we could impeach the president, but we don't.

    Egypt has been fighting an armed religious fascism and terrorism which scandal murder, torture, mutilation, destruction of places of worship, public and private buildings and archaeological buildings
    Please do not put pressure on Egypt and help in the fight against terrorism and we do not accept telling Lindsay that Sisi’s ecstatic by authority.
    What happened is public will and not a military coup.
    All the Egyptian people except fascist terrorists are with the Egyptian army so please do not intervene in our interior affairs.
