Egypt’s military warns of “disastrous consequences” if current unrest isn’t resolved

A bit of an ominous warning coming from Egypt’s military as protests over Morsi’s power grab are entering a third week:

CBN NEWS – Egypt’s military has warned of ‘disastrous consequences’ if the political crisis gripping the country is not resolved through dialogue.

The military said in a statement read on state TV on Saturday that serious dialogue is the “best and only” way to overcome the nation’s deepening political dispute.

Violent protests and clashes between supporters of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi and his opponents have left half a dozen civilians killed and several offices of the Muslim Brotherhood in flames since the crisis began last month.The two sides also have staged a number of sit-ins around state institutions, including the presidential palace where some of the most violent clashes occurred.

Morsi has called for a national dialogue but opponents say he must first cancel a Dec. 15 referendum on a contentious draft constitution and rescind decrees granting him immunity from any oversight.

    If ever, a reminder of the true intent of the Second Amendment and why disarming its citizens is the first act in the democracy of a tyrant.

      Especially since Barky Boy has given Morsi US tanks and other military equipment in order to kill Egyptians that dare to challenge the dictator!

      • Conniption Fitz

        Hopefully the steel and parts were made in China.

        • Orangeone

          Looks like the real reason Barky Boy wanted us out of Iraq so he could arm the MB!  Likely will do the same after Afghanistan

            The Bamster is giving aid and comfort to the enemy.Isn’t that treason?

            • Orangeone

              Yup!  Oh Boehner, where are you Johnny boy??? Come out of the corner, wipe the tears from your eyes and MAN UP!

              • 57thunderbird

                Boehner is gutless.As long as the dems(commies)have control of the senate,nothing will be done.

                  You are much kinder with your words than I am when I’m screaming at my laptop!

                • 57thunderbird

                  It takes all my restraint to do so..

              “Isn’t that treason?” Treason is just a word in Obama’s world. According to Jamie Foxx, Obama is our new “lord and savior.” The billions of dollars of military aid to Egypt is just helping our “allies” protect themselves from those Zionist devils in Israel.

              • 57thunderbird

                I think Obama believes he is the twelfth Imam who will rule the new caliphate.

                  And the only one who has to use a teleprompter.

      • Don

        The people of Egypt are being enslaved by the military equipment and hundreds of millions of American taxpayer dollars supplied by Obama and his sychophants. If you do not think this is a worldwide Islamic movenment movement that Obama is up to his ears in then you are blind or just don’t care. The “leader” of the free world is destroying our nation from within and using our nation’s resources to establish a global government under Islamic rule. This has been coming for decades and still has years to go, but it is out of the closet and the mainstream media will lead the people in the destruction of our country and everything it was founded on. He has no intention of ever leaving office.

          And nobody on either side of the aisle in D.C. has the balls to do anything about it.They are all in cahoots with few exceptions.

      Disarming citizens is often the first act toward genocide.

        God & Guns are sure security and great friends of peace & freedom. They always lead a healthy prosperous life.


    …I think it is called CIVIL WAR .”

  • cabensg

    Actually I’m surprised at the reaction to Mori’s take over. What difference does it make if they’re going to have Sharia law anyway. Is there a difference between sharia law run by a parliament rather than a dictator? I wonder what these demonstrators want other than no dictatorship? I doubt they’ll be any western reporters going in to find out.

    • Orangeone

      I think the MSNBC crew, Anderson Cooper, Oprah Winfrey and all the liberal talking heads should be on site in Egypt covering this story until it ends. All of them without armed security because they don’t believe in our 2nd Amendment. They can take Michael Moore and Van Jones along, unarmed, as body guards.

      • DebbyX

        I’m starting to feel bad for Oprah.

        Okay, I’m over it.

        • Orangeone

          You worried me for a minute Debby…..

          I have zero sympathy for her, her racism became so evident and her hero worshipping nauseating.
          Not to mention her constant fixation on her obesity and the impact it had on young girls.
          I’m personally glad her network is failing!

          • DebbyX

            I get a smile out of it once in a while also.

    There are only 2 possible governments under Islam. An Autocratic Islamic Dictatorship (what Egypt used to be) or a Theocratic Islamic Dictatorship (What Iran is now). Either way, Islam is the State.

    • Conniption Fitz

      Either way, it’s not a good deal for Egyptian people.

  • Great job there, dear leader.

  • John3_3

    This is a result of obamas failed foreign affairs policies.

    Egypt, Benghazi, higher tensions in Israel, Iran developing a nuke–to name a few.

    Unbelievable that the repubs could not win in November going up against this record!! Absolutely insane.

    • 57thunderbird

      The election was rife with fraud.That is how Obeyme won.

    • ebola131

      You can’t win when your opponent cheats and you’re too “honest” to do anything about it.
      The R’s in the House are closest to their constituents and control the purse of the country.
      They just don’t have the cahones to exercise their power without the publically displayed massive support of the “Tea Party” fiscal conservative base.
      You have to be willing to ride the bomb to the ground if you want to win.

  • Conniption Fitz

    ‘President’ Obama is sending 200 tanks, plus jets and other US military equipment to help the MoBroHoodlums establish Sharia hell in Egypt and to threaten Israel, of course.

    • Orangeone

      How is he able to do this without Congressional approval? I know this is a rhetorical question but how much more is he going to pull before someone yanks him back.

      • crosshr

        I do think that Congress do know about Obama’s quiet doing of his armament military equipment transfer to Egypt.Many in congress ride along to get along, others have no moral discernment, no moral character, and so blinded by there hate of Israel

        • Orangeone

          Sad isn’t it?  Our founding fathers are turning in their respective graves that greed is so destroying our Constitutional Republic.

  • ernst1776

    Who cares anymore?

  • Conniption Fitz

    UPDATE – According to news reports, Morsi anulled his ‘dictatorial decree’ and is asking for suggestions from the opposition for the new constitution.

    • Orangeone

      Diflection. It would be like Barky Boy admitting he was born in Kenya. Don’t EVER trust a dictator.

  • 57thunderbird

    Let the civil war begin.

  • It doesn’t sound like the Army is going to go all the way for Morsi. In fact, it looks like the Army is warning Morsi to end this or they will end him, and that is a good thing, I guess. If Morsi doesn’t give in, it looks like it will be Army rule in Egypt for years to come. Always remember that both Sadat and Mubarak came from the Army. It seems like military dictators are what the Egyptians are most comfortable with. And Obama and Clinton won’t be able to do a thing about it.

  • repubboy

    This what Obama gets for butting into another countries internal political disagreements.
    The Arab Spring was and still is a crock of Obama Leis.. A made up ,BS story, to allow the Muslim Brotherhood to gain political recognition in America. It was also the administrations idea on how to get the American people to soften our ideas on The radical
    Muslim faction that Obama administration favors and has and is aligned with today.
    That way he could as still is playing both side of the table.. He keeps his Liberal Jewish voters happy,the ones that are anti-Israel!! and He Keeps his Muslim buddies,@ C.A.R.E. happy.. all the while putting the big green weenie to the US public.. You have to give him credit he is a sly S.O.B.

    On the lighter side, here is a latma video. I think its from last week. Latma produces a weekly satirical pseudo news program. Its in hebrew, with english subtitles.

    It features a letter from obama to morsi at about the 4 min mark.
