    What Is Going To Happen In Egypt

    How do you think the problems in Egypt are going to effect the rest of the surrounding nations. What is going to happen if the conditions get worse in Egypt. What should the US do or not do. What do you see happening in Egypt?

    Egypt is in a new kind of turmoil. The majority of Egyptians were ecstatic following the demise of Mubarak - a dictator for decades in that land - people power helping to 'dethrone' him. It seems the principal player in that revolution was Egypt's military who maintained their self control in the face of great provocation and confusion. The general's realised that Mubarak's time was up and didn't support him.

    Morsi is a different kettle of fish. He has given himself sweeping new powers (as the western media call it) and has the military firmly behind him, so far. Yet he seems to be in two camps at once - he wants civil rights yet he supports the Islamic law, which as far as I can tell,is full of inequalities. Perhaps he's caught between a rock and a hard place having to keep the factions apart - don't forget Mubarak's old campaigners are still there plus the hard line Muslim brotherhood with its darker elements shall we say.

    The fascinating thing is that Morsi was part educated in the US and his sons have US citizenship? This could be pivotal in the long run - the Islamists will say Morsi is nothing but a US puppet dictator - the Mubarak gang can emphasise that, if things don't get better soon, Egypt was better off under Mubarak and will try and use that as a platform to gain more power.
    In the meantime all the people want is for Egypt to move forward,into a post dictatorial age, with democracy the keyword. At present though this dream is as far away as ever. We'll have to wait for this football related execution scenario to finish, let the dust settle, and then hope the new US foreign secretary can start real work in Egypt.
    The Arab spring was supposed to bring green shoots of democracy, and it has to a small extent, but the recent north African and Syrian issues show that this isn't going to happen overnight.

      You speak much wisdom in a short space. Sadly, I think that you are right that it will take a long time for the dust to settle in Egypt, whose main industry was U.S. and Russian tourism before the civil wars broke out. Thank you for writing! Peace!

    Sadly,I believe things will get worse before the country is finally put into the right hands to bring it back to greatness. The problem really stems from too long a period between the first revolution and free and open elections for a new goverment and the peoples misunderstanding of what democracy really means.
