Disaster !!
How fast this country is going to dive into the political cliff !! Should we thank President Morsi for it ? Is this nation on the right track for democracy, harmony and unity or is it going to bottom further ? How much more power a leader needs to do the right thing by his nation and do it right the first time ? one is wondering !
