      They have issued 300 arrest warrants for members of the Brotherhood, Troops and equipment have been dispatched to the Sinai to make sure no trouble is started with Israel by loyalist to the ousted party or insurgents.

      i don't know much at all about Egypt's Democracy. But "MILITARY COUP" shouldn't be a good thing for any country, right?

      We've witnessed worse in this last 50 years, for instance in Vietnam the President was overthrown and assassinated by the army, the US turned a blind eye but was deeply involved. I don't think this Egyptian overthrow was so much of a coup but more of a friendly way of saying he had three options, get out..get out..and finally get out. When you have that many people in the streets I think that pretty much makes the statement just who works for who. Today we celebrate our own coup and the birth of our nation. Not a bad run so far for a bunch of old witch hunters.

      One year ago, but Mubarak was not the worst of the lot to have power, he was propped by the US of course and given tons and tons of money to keep his military in good shape and to grease the beaks of his generals. After Sadat made peace with Israel it was a much better place, up until then the extremist were not well organized and you weren't seeing all the strife we now have. If you look at youtube and search Sadat assassination you'll probably find tons of information of what became the birth of real extremism. Mubarak was probably corrupt but you need to understand it is always much cheaper to pay corrupt people to maintain peace rather than spend trillions to fight wars, as we see today!! Now that was how politicians saw it at the close of WWII when there were lots of new nations that needed some stability, the Philippines is a great example, it is estimated the the disposed leader of the Philippines "Marcos" had socked away about 5 billion in US money sent to them to be used to run the nation, well that 5 billion was nothing if you consider we could have lost the Naval base and all the infrastructure we had built 70 years ago. The Philippines is a hot bed for communism and they live out on the outer islands where they can rule like they want and hard to control. If the military was ever weakened it could be very bad for the Philippines.
