    Too much meddling IMO.

    Here's the thing though.

    Yes, it's a democratically elected government, but it's far from having any semblance of liberty.

    What good is having someone voted in if they treat the people like slaves?

    thats why i was asking how he was voted in. doesnt seem to make sense for people to vote for a guy that treats them as such. was it fraudulent voting? false promises (not unlike our country)? or some other reason altogether? or does over half the country really believe hes the best guy for the job? the protestors numbers would suggest thats not the case.

    From my understanding, Morsi was very popular around the time of the first revolt. He was on TV often, organizing protests, etc and the people were trusting him. But after the election, he reserved a bunch of powers that were not written into the constitution, effectively making him President for life and a tyrant.

    This was a big part of the current coup now.

    I see, basically what Dade said but for some reason i was missing the part where he flipped what was expected and what he ended up doing. getting democratically voted in and then immediately killing democracy is one way to certainly cause a revolt.

    Watching the news this morning and I can't help but think about our old buddy Galen.

    Egypt is a disaster right now. I never thought it would ever be this bad.

    It is really bad.

    And as bad as it is, I still don't know that we should really get involved.

    The only way they will have elections that matter is to first develop national parties.

    I really hope we don't.

    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.
