  •  Maybe the opposition does not have enough strenght (6+ / 0-)

    To overthrow Morsi.The reality is far more complicated than the headlines in the news.I'm not  advocating for the Muslim Brotherhood  you must consider this before making any bet:

    1)The Muslim brotherhood are capable of mobilizing more people than the opposition.Like it or not, the opposition is no match.

    2)The Brotherhood is deeply rooted in the Egyptian society,especially among the poor.

    If the opposition wants to overthrow Morsi,it need to have an alliance with the army.Otherwise,street protests won't do it.

    •  Considering that the leadership of the military (9+ / 0-)

      consists of old-guard secularists educated and trained in the Soviet Union, and new-guard secularists educated and trained in the United States, I really don't see the Military backing up Morsi.

      My understanding is that Morsi and the Military don't have the best relationship, but I could be wrong. There's a lot of conjecture when it comes to the Military's relationship.

      We honestly could see the same developments we saw in Turkey, where the Military overthrew governments that didn't want to move is a secular, democratic direction.
