[Washington engineered Hosni Mubarak's ouster. He fell from grace. He
opposed Obama's regional agenda. It cost him dearly.
He became more liability than asset. Mohammed Morsi replaced him.
He's Washington's man in Egypt. Hard line rule continues.
Morsi's its public face. Egypt's anti-democratic tradition persists.

[Secular Algerians supported their army in 1992 when it cancelled the second round of
elections which would have been won by the Islamic Salvation Front. The "national
security" of the state was in danger, the Algerian generals said - the very words used
by Egypt's military leaders on Monday. And there followed in Algeria a civil war that
killed 250,000 people.--Robert Fisk, "Military rule would be more
like the silly junta who took over after Mubarak," independent.co.uk, July 1, 2013]

[Far from a spontaneous uprising by Egyptians, - aka "a people's revolution" - what
really happened was a putsch orchestrated by Egypt's "deep government" and outside
powers - the latest phase of the counter-revolution against the so-called Arab Spring. .
The dictatorship's old guard - better known as the "deep government" - sought to thwart
every move of the Brotherhood.--Eric Margolis, "The

[The Mubarakist bourgeoisie's response was that Egypt was theirs to pillage alone and
that they would not allow some Islamist upstarts to move in on their territory. . . .
Mubarak's bourgeoisie set their media empires loose on Mursi and the MB. Week after
week, hour after hour, on television, in the press, on social media, especially Facebook
but also twitter, a campaign of vilification, exaggerations, and outright lies would
ensue. . . . Gripped by popular fascist love fests for the army, Egypt is now ruled by an army
whose top leadership was appointed and served under Mubarak, and is presided over by a
judge appointed by Mubarak, and is policed by the same police used by Mubarak.--Joseph
