    I have been looking for this opportunity.
    Okay, Morsai of the Muslim Brotherhood was duly elected to be President.
    He was opposed by judges from Mubarak’s regime.
    So he temporarily declared more power until a new constitution was drawn up.
    The new constitution was written in a 16 hour session a couple of weeks ago.
    Now, the new constitution needs to be voted on? Ratified?
    As Rachael Maddow would ask, what have I said that is wrong?

    This is what fundamental transformation looks like.

    This is a country that has no experience with democracy. It will take decades to work out. We should expect the same everywhere in the region.

    Here’s what is wrong …
    .
    The situation in Egypt is incredibly complicated and involves more than just two factions. Notably, their military and internal police divisions are slivered into multiple groups that are at violent odds. Jockeying for control of these groups is making people nervous about who will ultimately control them.
    .
    If we look at it through the typical good guy vs. bad guy black-and-white manichean lens that most American media present, we’ll never properly understand.

    Seems that the whole country is in de-Nile!

    Morsi has an engineering background and some of his education was in the USA. He says things that upset politicians here.
    I don’t think we have much choice except to let the Egyptians sort it out among themselves.

    “As Rachael Maddow would ask, what have I said that is wrong?”

    What you have stated is not wrong. What isn’t there is his action to give himself almost dictatorial powers that were not part of the constitution or his stated election mandate. The cartoon refers to that, his dictatorial status is seen as not being much different than Mubarek. The constitution presented is based on Sharia law and obviously heavily supported by the Muslim Brotherhood.
    Hilary met with the original democracy movement and tried to get them to organize into a political body and become part of the election and the ruling government. The divisive factions ruled and they never put together a political party to compete in the elections. Once more chaos rules.

    Have we forgotten that our CIA redirected their captives to Egypt for “rendition” that could happen only there?

    We also sent them to Syria, a staunch ally.

    The Pharaohs must be spinning in their tombs. Assuming any are still in tombs.

    Now we know why Mubarak suppressed the Muslim Brotherhood.
