Egypt’s New Boss Same as the Old Boss…with a Side of Arab Winter?

by Steve MacDonald

Morsi declares himself new powers Eqyptians light stuff on fire to celebrateOn Thanksgiving the Muslim Brotherhoods Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi (Morsy) declared himself immune to judicial oversight (See also King, Dictator, Tyrant).  In the name of protecting the revolution no judge may overturn, edit, retract, modify, overrule, or otherwise act in any manner to alter any edict the new King of Egypt utters…until the (cough cough) people’s assembly has been elected and a new constitution has been written….

So none of that overturning executive orders nonsense, judges can’t stop them, and  any lawsuits directed at the folks at the top of the power pyramid are hereby vacated.

Some “animals” are again more equal than others.

As is often the case when a third world tyrant man with a vision for Sharia Law enforced by the violent Muslim Brotherhood change takes “bold steps” to protect his power reforms, there are those who will object.  Since we are talking about the Muslim world that means reports of protests, riots, damaging property, setting things on fire, and sexual assaults.

Supporters and opponents have clashed.  The (EGX30) Egyptian Stock market is droppingJudges are taking sides, there are declarations for national strikes, threats of even more violence, and calls for impeachement of Morsi.

What do we call this, the Arab Winter?

And does anyone doubt that the “reform” government will abuse its monopoly on force any less than the otherwise stable “abusive regime” they claim to have replaced?  And did the US government broker away its objection to Morsi’s planned power grab as part of the so-called ‘cease fire’ agreement with the Palestinian’s and Israel?  Sort of a “I’ll have more flexibility after the ‘election’ ” kind of a thing?  And hey, thanks for looking the other way we’ll be sure to make you pay repay you for it.

And was the “cease fire” ever anything more than an effort to give the terrorists time to re-arm for their own ongoing “peaceful protest” (firing thousands of rockets at civilians) against Israel, with the inept US willing to ignore the real implications for the region just so it could claim another empty foreign policy PR victory?

The Obama administrations mummers dance continues without intermission while Egypt presents the potential for Syria 2.0 and the new genertaion of tyrants mingles with the old as they grease the machines of power with the blood and liberty of their citizens.

The new boss worse than same as the old boss (well, their definition of the old boss)..and yes, they will get fooled again.

Wait!  Is this all because of a video?
