Is Egypt Set To Implode?

January 30, 2013

January 28, 2013 - San Francisco, CA - - On its second anniversary, it seems that the commemoration of Egypt's "Arab Spring" revolution has gotten a bit out of hand resulting in president Morsi declaring a 30 day national emergency and consequent declaration of martial law.

There is a generalized air of violence permeating the country, with institutions seemingly incapable of handling the rioting which is taking place across the country, in Port Said, Cairo, Ismailia, in numerous cities along the Suez Canal as well as other important population and commerce centers.

President Morsi - who remains a high ranking official within the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood [MB] - has rammed a new edict through Egypt's compliant Shari'a based Shura Council, which will allow the military to act as judge, jury and executioner [please refer to Muslim Brotherhood Asked For Law Giving Arrest Powers To Military, Al-Masry Al-Youm for further clarification].

In other words, Egypt is now undeniably a totalitarian state. It should be noted that though deposed [and imprisoned] president Mubarak governed under a similar lack of legal restraint, much of his concern and energy was directed at suppressing the very Muslim Brotherhood which now runs the country.

As the lawlessness spreads and fear sets in, Mr. Morsi will find an environment which is rife with opportunities [never let a crisis go to waste] to further extend his already considerable power.
