#1 "If opposition is seeking change, only way to do it through ballot box and earning people trust in upcoming elections
You'll know you've arrived at true democracy when 129% of registered voters turn out to vote and the opposition candidate fails to get a single vote. Call it whatever you like. We call it Obamaville.

#2 MB are no friends of the West.
We must support the opposition like we should in Iran.
It all comes down to Democracy versus Sharia Law.

#3 And in order to defend democracy we had to flagrently ignore it by giving our guy overwhelming powers and then ramming home our own version of how the country will be run. Nice
This time the non MB have the experience of two "sort of " successes. One against Muberak, the other against the military. They will not stop. and the MB - well, they can be rallied on to go into the breach at any time. Looks like a coal for Xmas for all concerned.

Bullshit! The so-called "opposition" was never and is never going to pull the levers in Egypt. The MoBro Genie is out of the bottle. Deal with it. Besides, those leftist pricks brand of "Democracy" has nothing to do with Liberty. Trying to be on the "right side of history" is for saps.

Leftist theologians vs leftist secularists. What a choice. Sadly, these choices reflect the composition of the Egyptian hoi polloi.
