    The idea of a democracy for Morci?, is a democracy like in Iran, or like was in the communist country, under dictatorial leadership of the working class, or say Islam only.
    I don't thing the USA and the world can stomach another Iran. Therefore, put the interests of the civilized world, first and support the 49% of Egipt.

    Good for the Egyptian military, Egypts last hope. The more extremist Islamists they kill, the better for Egypt and the World.
    We should increase our aid to them as they engage in defeating their enemies, and ours.
