Al Picozzi's insight:

Another view of the coup in Egypt against the Muslim Brotherhood.  Eveyone has their spin on these issues.  Militray Coups in Egypt have been part of their history.  The Free Officers movement in 1952 led by Nasser and Naguib that overthrew King Farouk is prme example.  Later this led to a conflict over the Suezx Canal in 1956 when Nasser nationalized the canal prompting Great Britian, France and Israel to invade.  Eventually, under pressure from the US, USSR and the UN, they withdrew from Egypt.  Alot going on here that is goning to shape the situation in the Middle East.

On July 23, 1952 a group of Egyptian army "Free Officers" engineered a coup d'etat. Military leaders have kept a firm grasp on power ever since.
Al Picozzi's insight:

Also happened at the end of the Ottoman Empire, of which Egypt once belonged.  Mustafa Kemal with what was left of the Ottoman Military supported Turkish nationalsim and deposed the Sultan and gave birth to Modern Turkey.  So here is a question to ponder, is a military coup detat to change governamnets part of the culture in this area? If it is, does anyone have the right to interfere?
