Absolutely agree. If you renege on principle once, you will do it time and time again. If it is a people will to be stuck with AKP after another election, so be it. I hope not, but I will not rely on military to overthrow AKP. Much harder but more righteous struggle for our rights is ahead, towards which there should be no shortcuts. Dependence on military is only a sign of liberal weakness, as is situation in Egypt. It just showed how weak Liberals and Copts are that they had to rely on military establishment to remove MB. But "third square" movement is giving some hope, that liberals will find their voice.
