Time For Armed Forces To Save Egypt
Now it is the police, which should maintain law and order going strike. There is no other civil force as an alternative. What's next for Egypt? If the Armed Forces seizes power without consent from the MB, Egypt will see greater civil disturbances which can even be more violent. If President Morsi and Chiefs of the Armed Forces should agree to take tough and painful measures to bring peace and stability, possibly MB will keep the peace. Beware, with all precautions to prevent loss of life, life may still be lost in the process. President Morsi and SCAF must now stop the rot or else Egypt will drop into the abyss.

RE: To Late For Muslim Brotherhood
From an outsiders perspective MB have had many opportunities to form a national unity government in the interests of all Egyptian people. From an outsiders perspective the MB have lost this great opportunity because they wish to hang onto power at all costs. MB are now tarnished with the Mubaric brushand will spend the next sixty years isolated without a voice to shape this great nations future.
