Military vs Islamists

Reader comment on item: Egypt's Palace Coup

Submitted by hzw (China), Jun 27, 2012 at 05:01

The fact is that the military has been running the country for a long time, and Mubarak was trying to interfere with their monopoly due to egotist motivation to install his son into power. They did find a way to get him out, but I do not think that they counted on the Muslim Brotherhood jumping so seamlessly into the void and taking advantage. Now it is a true battle between the military and the Islamists. What it is not, nor never will be , is a democracy that the people elect to. The delusion that the Muslim Brotherhood are representing the people is an extremely dangerous one.
