    Samo-Samo! The people aren’t going to stand for it.

    Terrific! Get rid of one Autocratic Despot, and replace him with another Autocratic Despot!
    It seems to happen a lot in the Mid-East…

    Temporary autocracies are like temporary tax cuts. A real pain to get rid of once they’re there.

    Same O -Same O is right.
    They get into office screaming Democracy, the minute their rumps hit the throne, they attack the people who put them there.

    Sorry, my friend. Egyptian history strongly disagrees with you..

    If he let it be clear why he does it this way – that its supposed to be temporary, and way too many people try to block the legislation by petitioning against it, and thereby nothing gets done – then MAYBE people would be for it.

    I think you’re right. I think the military are waiting for their citizenry to kick Morsi out and try again. After a few tries, they (the military) will try one of their own, when they think it’s safe. I hope democracy prevails.

    This cannot be true. Why, it was none other than George W. Bush who told us that all people in the Middle East yearn for democracy, especially those in Iraq. That was proved, because there is a fiercely democratic government there now.

    So, all we need to do now, is to invade Egypt. Simple, huh?

    One problem is that they had an election before they had a Constitution, now they need that Constitution and follow it. And now Morsi is feeling the heat all around to either retract or to get out of office.

    A riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. Said by Churchill about Russia, but could apply to many countries in the Middle East today.

    Just saw the BBC news & Tahrair(sp?) Square is filling with protestors. Whether he is a leader or a dictator will be seen in the next hours. Democracies aren’t born easily. But they are precious when won.
