The Pentagon expressed serious concern Monday after the Egyptian military declared sweeping new powers just as ballots were being counted in a pivotal presidential vote.

"We're deeply concerned about new amendments to the constitution declaration, including the timing of their announcements as polls were closing for the presidential election," spokesman George Little told reporters.

Wickedness & absolute abuse of authority
lets all pray to our Father in Heaven Yahweh - that he will make the wicked sleep in death both now and eternally (in the scales of justice to equal measure as to what has been sown) they reject Yahweh as the absolute authority - their breath IMO no longer matters and the deplete that which isnt theirs to begin with (too many saints and HOLY ppl have been lost)

Fascist comment
You can always count on someone to introduce the old Western Fascist line that the Jews run the world. And speaking of stupidity, Goldman Sachs has for many years had nothing to do with Jews, it's just a name used to promote antisemitism among the gullible and those desiring an excuse for bigotry. And as for "puppet masters," it is the Brotherhood that has been tutored by the Carnegie Institute for Peace for 7 years at least -- I have seen the evidence going back to 2005. And the U.S. is manifestly OPPOSING the military. The U.S. State Department burps and the Brotherhood takes a stomach pill.
