Massive Protests in Egypt

Massive protests in Egypt are coming to a head today, as a military deadline for Egypt's president, Mohammed Morsi, to come to a resolution with protesters is set to expire. Morsi said in a speech last night that he would not back down to the threat of a military coup.

AP reports military officers are present in state TV newsroom, monitoring content before ultimatum.

But what will the protests lead to? The protests that led to the downfall of Hosni Mubarak resulted in Morsi becoming president. Without a firm grasp for what liberty really is, the people of Egypt are doomed to be led  by tyrants of one degree or another, just like in most other countries.


Egypt TV reports Morsi under house arrest.


Gen. Abdel Fatah Said Al-Sisi has announced a military coup in Egypt. He said that the Constitution had been suspended, that early elections would take place, and that there would be a “code of ethics” for the media. He stated that the chief of the Constitutional court would be taking charge during a transitional period before another election.
