    When Morsi first came to power, the military moved to block some of his powers and the Mubarak era judges disqualified many of those elected to the parliament. When I first heard Morsi had “seized power”, I thought of what I was hearing in the light of a democratically elected prime minister being hobbled by the remnants of the previous regime. I will continue to watch events in Egypt with the hope that Mr. Morsi will not become the dictator Mubarak had become and that he will also remain faithful to agreements made with Israel and the USA. I am impressed with how the Egyptians are standing up for their rights.
    & Happy Holidayze.

    we are all concerned with morsi but he is just what the americans wants, a controllable dictator. if the street riff raff are allowed to democractically elect a leader he may be some one who will not take orders from washington like mubarak did. god only knows who the riff raff would elect like at the us

    @Respectful Troll

    You’re being a little generous here. Morsi has already listed assumed powers that the council of judges and others have said are unconstitutional. He’s cut from the cloth Muslim Brotherhood and is bent on implementing sharia law. He hates Israel and has little use for the U.S. except we are giving them money. Hillary already met several times with the “arab spring” group to try to organize them into a democratic governing body. It didn’t work. Mubarek kept the peace and at least was cooperative with America and maintained somewhat diplomatic relations with Israel. The middle east is a cesspool and we have no business there.
    We can drill our own oil and let those people continue to kill each other as they have for the last several hundred years.

    Hello Mickey,
    I nearly always find myself in agreement with you. it’s the time of year to be generous tho, isn’t it? But I’m cynical enough to watch how he handles the protesters who, even as I type this, continue to gather in Tahria(sp?) Square to protest. We’ll soon see if Morsi can pass the George Washington test by stepping away from office if required by an act of parliment.
    At least we don’t import oil from them, I don’t think their oil industry is on par with some other arab nations.
    I dislike the USA giving patronage to dictators. One reason Iran hates us is because we kept the Shah in power even when he was torturing people in prison. I fear we lost some of the moral high ground there.
    Been enjoying your posts. take care.

    “Mubarek kept the peace”? He sure did- through American-funded oppression.But that’s our foreign policy, I suppose… freedom for the people we like, “Made in USA” jackboots on the necks of everyone else. And then we wonder why we’re not universally loved.

    The judges threw out a bunch of fairly elected legislators and also two different groups that were drafting a constitution. Egypt probably needs a constitution, and if there’s a process for creating one, it probably shouldn’t be thrown out. I’m willing to cut Morsi SOME slack, but it really seems like a bad solution.
