The New Muslim Brotherhood Dictatorship in Egypt
Egypt didn't have to go this way. There was nothing inevitable about a Muslim Brotherhood takeover. But now that this is all but complete, it looks as though the incompetent generals, ineffective Egyptian democrats and a rudderless America actually helped speed this process along. Rubin reports:
Muslim Brotherhood President al-Mursi has just removed the two commanding generals of the Egyptian military. Does he have a right to do this? Who knows?There’s no constitution. That means all we were told about not having to worry because the generals would restrain the Brotherhood was false. Moreover, the idea that the army, and hence the government, may fear to act lest they lose U.S. aid will also be false. There is no parliament at present He is now the democratically elected dictator of Egypt.
The only question now is just how far and how fast Egypt will fall back into the stone age under these thugs.
