#1 related to the story above, the head of the egypt constitution referendum committee resigned two days after being appointed

Morsi's actions have made his motivation transparent. He called for dictatorial power for two months to allow a constitution referendum, then he rushed the constitution writers to finish in 48 hours, then he set Dec 15 as the date for the referendum. This was obviously to avoid people seriously debating the terms of the constitution.

Heckava job Hillary

#3 Obama really needs to thank Morsi for waiting until just after the election. Heck of a pal he is.

#9 Grapeshot is used in artillery, while buckshot is used in shotguns.

Don't think that the MB has access to artillery - yet.

#11 Wonder who is watching the border.

The photos show M-60 tanks, which means the the 'good stuff' hasn't been moved in.
