No doubt the Obama administration will pretend that nothing is amiss and aid to the military in Egypt will continue. Good thing because at the rate they’re expending bullets, they’re going to need a resupply soon.

Yes, Islamists are bad, bad people and the Muslim Brotherhood are the worst of them. We don’t want them in power. We don’t want them spreading their poisonous ideology. But guess what? The Islamists won 70% of the seats in the Egyptian parliament in an election last year. This isn’t some fringe opposition group they’re trying to suppress. The Egyptian people may be mad at the way that Morsi incompetently dealt with the economy and tried to suppress the opposition himself, but if the election were held tomorrow, Islamists would almost certainly receive a majority of the vote.

I’m just cynical enough to think it’s a good thing they’re out of power, but firing live bullets into a crowd? Tear gassing women and children?

Egypt’s travails are just beginning.

I have always argued that there is nothing wrong with Islam that mass famine cannot cure. And as far as the religion's gloating over slaughtering the infidels and hate-contorted faces endlessly screaming for terror and Jihad.....that can be cured the way Egypt is curing it today.

As long as the bloodshed can be limited by the country's borders, we are duty and moral-bound to arm BOTH sides of any civil conflict in any muslim country.

I'm glad the Egyptian military isn't whitewashing this situation. I really prefer when the Muslim Brotherhood is red-washed in their own blood. The MB has killed so many innocent people. It's time they meet their maker and it isn't allah.

I mourn for the casualties of the MB (not). Be outraged, support the bizarre-o Admin's severing of support of the new regime, etc. They are spinning on a dime and seeking support in other places - Saudi Arabia, Russia. Al-Sisi refused to take Obama's call in which Obie was doubtless going to order the general to step in. He won't be 'doing a Mubarak' to please those outside Egypt.

or 'step down.' Obama said 'traditional relations are done' or somesuch no doubt in part because al-Sisi refused to speak to him. I half-wish Netanyahu would do the same.

Hmmm ... I notice that there is no mention in Rick Moran's piece about the three or four dozen Egyptian cops being killed over the course of these events, or about the "non-violent" Egyptian Brotherhood's burning of Coptic churches. I guess that would spoil the leftist narrative.

The MB , al Qaida and Sinai bedouin are in deep excrement. After all the Egyptian army knows how to make people disappear and has used Mustard gas on enemy arabs before.want to bet that soon dispatches from Egypt willbe coming through 'our correspondant in Jerusalem'. Much safer to be a war correspondant in Israel than in an actual warzone.

Pity latma.co.il is off air. i would love to hear Egypt's Minister of conspiracies or the Palestian minister of uncontrollable rage's take on all this

Face it. The awkward inhabitants of the Middle-East's largest population pen don't do well under ideal democratic conditions - proven by Egypt's generally passive history under strong man rules from Nasser through Mubaric. Once the fanatics get in control of anything, it usually goes straight to hell. Which it is doing as I speak.

Evidence the US of A under the phony leftist Barack Hussein Mohammed Obama - a committed ding-a-ling, as loopy as Morsi, but as of yet not possessing the cajones to stage the take-over he really desires. As far as I can tell, the US of A always does poorly under the thumb of a basically gutless liberal, and once poorly enough, the boys in the band like to see the big cheese bumped off or bumped out.

Egypt is going to have to settle back to the good old days with a strongman ex-general running the show and being very, very dangerous to anyone who threatens the general peace and/or anyone who competes with the ex-general for what's there for the taking.

"German Security Forces Crack Down on pro-Hitler protests."

This is what is really going on over there. I support the Egyptian military in their attempt to honor and defend their Constitution, which requires respect for everybody's Civil Rights. The Muslim Brotherhood tried to dismantle these Constitutional protections, much like how Hitler dismantled the German Republics Constitution. The Egyptian Army very well may be preventing another Islamic mini-Hitler from coming to power.

Time for the Muslim Brotherhood to go.

The Islamists are no better than the Nazis. The Baath Party of Iraq and Syria is modeled on the German Nazi Party. The crack down is a support of Democracy being attacked by Islamists who are trying to use an election to steal power and enforce sharia. Its good to see the Egyptian Army's commitment to defending their laws and Constitution.

Exactly. The Muslim Brotherhood is an enemy of the USA and of American Christians in particular.

Slaughter them all.

Did anyone GAS what the Red Army may have done when it beat the Wehrmacht back to Berlin?

Nope.

I saw video of Brotherhood men with AK-style rifles on the streets today, shooting at police. I have reports from friends in Egypt of Anglican and Catholic churches under heavy attack in Suez, and Coptic Orthodox churches under attack in the Delta. It isn't the USA. Egypt was a police state under the Nasser to Mubarak chain of dictators, it was a police state under the Brotherhood, and it's a police state now. For Christians and modern Muslims, this police state is far preferable to the Brotherhood.

When they're done with the Brotherhood in Egypt, can the Egyptian Army come over here and take care of our MB problem?

Can you imagine if Mubarak had used these tactics? He might still be in power if he had.

Can you imagine if the Shah had used these tactics? His son might still be in power if he had.

When asked if Islam is amenable to "reform," I always answer Yes. War is the solution to Islam. The UN never gives War a chance. There are so many key moments in the last 60 years when War was on the verge of permanently solving the problems presented by Islam, and every single time the UN intervenes in the nick of time to insure that Islam remains in its present state of intractable misery. The diseased societies of Islam can only be rectified by the application of total war. Before the UN, total war was universally appreciated. The fates of Germany and Japan are educational and inspiring. Total War sparked a total reformation of those societies, where half measures like diplomacy and peacekeepers and international organizations failed. Half measures leave intact failed systems.
