    within the week. I am pretty certain the people in the square will not stand down. It's either a massacre Tiananmen style or the military sides with the people.

    I think the military is the only answer.

    •  1954, Nasser promised democracy and elections (0+ / 0-)

      in a few months and then turned around and picked up every leader of the protest movement and killed them. Most of those leaders were members of the MB. Of course, no one really remembers this little incident...but what is happening right now strangely reminds of 1954

      Don't give a damn a/t each & every politician currently alive in the US. Last time i voted for the top part of the ballot was 1972. Never missed SB election
