    Concise article which is well written and filled with factual information. Of course, Coptic Christians are supporting the military. They were living in fear under Morsi. The MB spokesman states that the military wants to install a dictatorship. Well yeah! As if Morsi was not a dictator who appears to be lined up with Iran. The 2 dollar question remains of just why both American political parties are putting a democratic spin to this issue. Senators McCain and Graham both visited and came back with the exact interpretation from the Obama Administration. it is to be sadly noted that 40 Egyptian policemen have been killed in the rioting. I am sure quite brutally. There is also a question of just when this type of problem will come to the U.S. Here in St. Louis, the city population has dropped to 315K. There are now 70K Bosnians in the city and a total of 80K in the region. So far, they have been great and model citizens. For stable folk in the area, the nervous question continues to be based on "so far". Hopefully, this is a Middle Eastern phenomenon.

    I wonder how many of these protesters are Egyptians?

    No one including Egypt should want the Muslim Brotherhood to rule it. We are seeing a cataclysmic confrontation going on that will affect the entire Muslim community. Will they go with the Jihadists or with real democracy. Poverty may be expected from the rule of an Islamic government

    The plot thickens.
