Egypt’s “Temporary ” Dictator To Deploy Army Against Protesters…(We’re Next!!)
by Tyler Durden
Update: The devolution is complete as Egypt declares martial law.
It was only a matter of time before Egypt’s US-endorsed temporary dictator resolved to what will be spun as temporary military intervention against what is increasingly looking like a permanent counterrevolution by deploying the army to crush local protesters who have besieged the Egyptian presidential palace for almost a week, and have put the country’s new “democratic” regime increasingly under threat of collapse. RT reports that “Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi will authorize the deployment of the country’s armed forces to quash protests in Cairo, al-Ahram reported. The military said prolonging the crisis would be “disastrous,” and that they would not tolerate violence. At least six people died and hundreds were reported injured over the last few days in the unrest that has gripped the Egyptian capital since late November. Al-Ahram reported that the armed forces will be given powers of arrest, previously an exclusive right of the police.”
