The Egyptian problem is too many people, not enough food

Reader comment on item: Intricacies of Egypt's Coup d'├ętat Explained

Submitted by Ken Besig (Israel), Jul 9, 2013 at 07:42

Egypt has too many poor, illiterate, malnourished, and violent people who no longer have enough food or fuel. The leader who can actually provide them with food and fuel will remain in power, Morsi did not and could not, therefore he is gone.

But unless some other source of funding can be found for the next Egyptian leader to provide food and fuel, he will be thrown out as well, and chaos will probably reign in Egypt for a long time.
