Tweets from Egypt hint at Army revenge, not peaceful transition

While President Obama and other political leaders meekly call for a peaceful transition from Morsi’s rule to civilian control guided by the military, there are indications that a violent struggle might occur between the Egyptian Army and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Oppression of journalists, mass arrests, and indiscriminate attacks harken back to former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s dictatorship. Will members of the Egyptian army restrain themselves or start a new era of tyranny?

    The army attacking the brotherhood while the brotherhood are attacking coptics. Chaos to ensue.

    Something like the Scorpion and the Fox. The Army is the Fox the Muslim Brotherhood is the Scorpion. The scorpion’s toxin has not killed the fox yet, but it has made it very hard to get to the other side of the river. All other foxes see this and are hunting down the rest of the scorpions to make sure there life is not pleasant anymore, even if its in there nature to sting.

    So, we are supposed to be concerned now about the Muslim Brotherhood? the group that kills Christians? Just like Sarah said… let Allah decide.

    Arresting members of Al Jazeera is not really bad considering Al Jazeera are the terrorists best friend.

    As interesting, if not more so than the arresting of members of the MB, is the accelerated back peddling the brat and his trolls are employing to distance themselves from their BFF, Morsi. Rumor has it that Valerie Jarrett is closing the MB office at the witless house; and all future visitors from the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, HAMAS, Hezbollah, etc. will have to use the service entrance.

    Animals will be animals, it really will not concern me much.

      Depends…There are more radical elements out there than the MB….Al-Qaeda? The Taliban? A very distinct possibility… Jawamax 8<{D}

    I listened as we were told Mubarak was a terrible dictator and that the MB was “no longer violent”… all the while happily ignorant of the issue of a Caliphate & the well publicized Islamic movement they pursued. Since then, I watched as political Islam, through the MB, destroyed civil order with Sharia rule & the slaughter of whole communities without even a hint of remorse for our misplaced support.

    Now suddenly we’re concerned that the MB have been arrested by the hundreds? A “return” to the Mubarak days” you say? You mean, a time when a government took seriously their requirement to providing security for all its citizens? I don’t get it how anyone could think MB is about peace or that clamping down on radicals bent on power and suppressions can be anything but peaceful.

    Seems to me that the folks in the mix, the Egyptians, are well aware of the risks they take in doing what they need to do to restore the tenants of a civil society. It took great courage for over one quarter of the population to stand tall, we owe them our respect and support in attaining self government. Besides, isn’t that what we fight for here? May be, by simply recognizing MB for the real threat it is would be a great start?

    Above all, pray unceasingly. We were not promised that this battle between good and evil would be easy, but we were promised that with God as our compass we would not be abandoned.

      The people involved in this mess do not even recognize God in the way that we do. There is no “good & evil” there. It’s all evil and we should just let it burn.

    The MB, aren’t they a largely secular ortanization? At least according the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. For some reason I doubt Clapper saw the events in Egypt coming.

    What better birthday present for America than all of these Muslim rat bass turds pound each other into oblivion?? I say the U.S. should just get the hell out of the region, withdraw any and all military and financial support, (excepting, of course, Israel), and allow these vermin to annihilate one another. When the dust settles and the Muzzies are gone, we can waltz right in and suck up their oil and dance a jig on their graves. That’s MY foreign policy strategy. Beats the hell out of Barky’s….

    We should learn already that just because “the people” demonstrate in huge numbers in the streets, it doesn’t necessarily mean we should automatically agree with their cause. Especially if they are Muslims. Often both sides are not our friends.

  • Steve_J

    How many mb and islamists are in postitions of responsiblity in the military?

  • AZWarrior

    Personally, I think the Egyptian Military has the situation well in hand. The Muslim Brotherhood has brought this on themselves and now must pay the price.

  • David Paitsel

    Killing members of the Muslim Brotherhood and their supporters is roughly equivalent to killing terrorists. I should be concerned about this…why?
