IPS News journalist Adam Morrow discusses Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohamed Morsi’s narrow victory in Egypt’s presidential runoff election; how Egypt’s military and supreme constitutional court are subverting civilian government and democratic reforms; the danger of false flag bombings designed to sow unrest and discredit the Islamists; and why Egypt’s military is better suited for domestic repression than national defense.

  1. Egypt — Some kind of morality must come into play

    The upper half of Egyptian society, the 50% most wealthy who own all the wealth, they have always ruled Egypt and just as soon as a new paid actor President is set in place things will get back to normal.

    Yes a rich ruling class controls all of politics and the military, but most careful are they to not violate the traditions and economical norms that keep the entire upper half of society most happy.

    So, the Muslim Brotherhood and the military junta, two power combines and political parties that own a great many multinational corporations, they are battling it out on the political arena to see which group of paid actors gets to run a make believe government. For anarchy ruled by money, a dictatorship ruled by those with the most money, this is Egypt until some kind of morality comes into play.

  2. High Society — Does so love it’s own

    The corporate rich who Empire USA, they just ordered paid actor Obama to proclaim that the Egyptian military must let billionaire Mursi be President or all military aid will terminate.

    For the trillionaires who rule America, they hope upon hope in their hearts that all the nations on earth would someday be ruled by billionaires.

  3. It is not clear at this point who will be the next president in Egypt until the military announces the winner this Thursday. If Shafiq is announced by to be the winner, two things may happen:

    1. Most of the people may be tired and accept the status quo, even though there may be small demonstration which the army will crush savagely, or

    2. There may be nationwide protest demonstrations resulting in one of the following:

    a) The army may step back and allow a civilian revolutionary council to take over (this is doubtful), or

    b) The army may decide to use force during which hundreds, perhaps thousands would lose their lives. In this case two things may happen:

    i) People are intimidated and the army wins and the revolution is dead on arrival, or

    ii) People resort to civil disobedience/pick up arms/Molotov cocktails and defeat the military and execute anybody above colonel.

    There are also some possible actions if the MB candidate is announced to be the winner (to be continued in my next post)

  4. Does not the Egyptian army live/thrive off U.S. aid–3 billions annually? Does anyone seriously believe they would do anything this major without U.S. OK?

    “It is not clear at this point who will be the next president in Egypt”

    But, have I not for over two weeks proclaiming my prophesy that Mursi the Billionaire would be the next dictator of Egypt?

    Comes now the head of the Election Commission in Egypt to announce that Mursi is ahead so far in the vote count.

    For virtually everyone who walks the earth has an illusion that he deserves to be rich, and surely there can be no one more beloved by the people then a billionaire.

  6. Government forced ignorance — Public enemy number one

    Comes now the Egyptian military, knowing full well who won the election, and they to mentally paralyze the population by refusing to disclose who will be their next President. Maybe Sunday, maybe a year from Sunday, and while the people cook with anxiety.

    Perfection in mass slavery, for what can a man do if he has no idea of what is reality, as it transpires in real time and real space?

    So, overthrow the corruption of it or learn to live with it, but never should Egypt fall sucker-bait to the false-hope slavery embodied in it.

  7. I've seen that before in Africa. In 1992 Algeria decided to organize open parliamentary elections for the first time since their independence from the French colonial masters (132 years of occupation of Algeria). The Muslim Brotherhood (Algerian equivalent) handilly won the elections and the army (controled by France) did exactly what Egypt just did – i.e take over the government and impose the military rule…. And what happened? 200,000 were killed between 1992 and 2002 in a bloody civil war……

    I feel that Egypt is taking that path except that this time it's Not France that has the leash on the military but the US.

  8. Jahbulon, your much too pessimistic, for in the grand scheme of things, wars have a purpose and that is reach their ultimate conclusion. For crime has limitations, both in amount and duration, whereas good is unlimited, unending and just as soon as misery cannot get any worse, then surely all things will turn toward the good.

  9. Poor man needs but one gun to keep the foxes out of his hen house

    All armies are for sale to the highest bidder. Be it Egypt or Empire USA, we see the generals being hand picked by the richest of the rich, at every banquet in High Society we see the glorified bodies of generals with all their shinny medals, in America the generals get to retire as executives of corporations, in Egypt the best generals get to own corporations.

  11. If it is needed, there will be some provisions of the significant documents, certificate
    of incorporation, Certificate of Incumbency, as
    well as the Articles of Association. For domestic
    purpose, wooden and plastic snap frames are popular. This clock would be complete with a case, Terry realised he could make
    a profit on both movement and case, and a finished clock could be sold all over America.
