The Coup Is Complete: Egypt Military Tells Mursi He Is No Longer President - Tahrir Celebrates - Live Feed

Tyler Durden's picture

Well that was quick

Some headlines from the speech:

  • SEESI: MILITARY TRIED TO BROKER RECONCILIATION FOR MONTHS
  • SEESI SAYS PRESIDENCY REJECTED OVERTURES
  • SEESI: MURSI SPEECH YESTERDAY DIDN'T MEET PEOPLE'S DEMANDS
  • SEESI SAYS EARLY PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS TO BE HELD
  • EGYPT'S CONSTITUTION TO BE SUSPENDED UNDER PLAN, SEESI SAYS
  • SEESI: MILITARY AGREED ON ROADMAP THAT WON'T EXCLUDE ANYBODY
  • SEESI SAYS GOVERNMENT OF TECHNOCRATS TO BE FORMED

Mursi is unhappy:

  • MURSI URGES CITIZENS TO REJECT COUP: SKYNEWS CITING STATEMENT
  • EGYPT'S MURSI SAYS MILITARY MEASURES REPRESENT 'FULL COUP'

Which however is irrelevant, as Mursi is about to disappear, only to reappear perhaps in the transit zone of the Moscow airport

From the WSJ:

Egypt’s military announced it is ousting Islamist president President Mohammed Morsi, suspending the constitution and calling for early elections—a move the presidential palace quickly branded a “complete military coup.” Egypt will be ruled temporarily by the president of the Supreme Constitutional Court, the head of Egypt’s military, Gen. Abdel Fattah Al Sisi, said in an address on state television Wednesday evening in Egypt. Mr. Morsi rejected the declaration that he was out of office and called on Egyptians to avoid bloodshed and honor the constitution.

Of course, how the Muslim Brotherhood will accept their overthrow remains unclear but after the initial shock expect "reprisals"...

The new interim head of Egypt will be revealed tomorrow:

  • Head of Egypt constitutional court to be sworn in as interim head of state on Thursday

He will most likely be succeeded by Mohamed ElBaradei.

While earlier the State Department spokesperson was careful not to take sides, it seems - given Cantor's recent comments of the US long-standing support of the Egyptian military - that they have come out in support of the new framework; for fear, we suspect, of the growing anti-American sentiment we first exposed here.

 

 

 

 

*U.S. ORDERS HOME NON-ESSENTIAL DIPLOMATS IN EGYPT: AP

Reuters is reporting that four are dead in clashes between Morsi supporters and security forces in Alexandria - as we noted here, it seems the military's standby role has shifted gears.

so where does morsi try to run, the U.S. or Israel...    sadly for him, now that he has no further use to them, his days are probably numbered.

redpill's picture

Who gives a fuck.  He was instrumental in cramming a Constitution down their throat that only a slim majority of people supported.  Constitutions need to protect the individual from the goverment and be broadly consensual, not impose Sharia law because the MuzBros think the prophet wants it that way.  Otherwise you are just laying the groundwork for the next revolution.  Mursi reaped what he has sown.

Boris Alatovkrap's picture

There once is spring time in Cairo

Where it did went, I don't know,

Even Morsi put on big smile,

But is all be in denial

(see what Boris is do for humorous word pun - "denial", "the nile" because is long river in Egypt)

Because military general is real leader of country and democracy is poor to take root in radical islamo-fascist regime where citizenry are more comfortable to take order from kleptocracy above than is to govern self below.

Sorry, Boris is still amateur in create tempo of limerick, is prefer iambic pentameter.

prains's picture

your riambic pentameter is still fucking funny Boris

Btw, have you guys notice that Morsi's campaign political party logo...looks a bit too eerily like Obama's logo?

big picture is important... the people are rejecting the NWO model, forced on them from the outside.  the muslim brotherhood has always been a front for the U.S. and Israel.  now ordinary people have figured it out.  huge development.

ACP's picture

Al-Sisi is probably going to need a lot of highly loyal, well-trained bodyguards. He just pissed off all the world's fatcat shitbag oligarchs in one fell swoop.

As AC/DC might say...

flacon's picture

If he pissed off the oligarchs, then why is he calling for a group of bankers and intellectuals with ph Dees from accredited American Ivy League universities to run the show?

ACP's picture

Since no one really knows what's going on behind the scenes, the backgrounds of the technocrats involved will definitely have to be watched. Hopefully, the generals know enough about The Big Goldman Screw that they have some independent thinkers draft the new constitution. At the moment, they seem to be a lot more inclusive than Morsi's regime.

cifo's picture

Probably payback for siding with Iran.

john39's picture

Morsi recently sided with the mercenaries sent to Syria by US/Israhell/gulf states...  no way did he back Iran.  Another reason why this is a big development.

Bringin It's picture

Right on John39.  He did not back Iran.

The US .gov stooge was kicked out of Georgia [Ok, he gets to hang around unil Nov w/o power] and now Egypt. 

Is this a trend??

Boris Alatovkrap's picture

Morsi also is buy nice summer home in Memphis, but now maybe is not so good idea. Can get refund on deposit?

prains's picture

He can just move in Boris no deposit required, the key is under the mat

"He was instrumental in cramming a Constitution down their throat that only a slim majority of people supported. "

Are you referring to Publius?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federalist_Papers

A piece of paper written by the government and subject to review, interperation, and enforcement by only the government is intended to protect the serfs from the government, which controls overwhelming amounts of people/materiel, capital/resources, all of the courts, and the military (gee I wonder why that whole state militia thing fell apart, hmmm....)? Is this a "who's on first?" routine?

"consensual", that's fucking rich, get back to me with the results of that full universal public referendum on the Constitution... the one that never happened.

Now remind what Jefferson said regarding "the next revolution".

“the Egyptian people have spent dearly to achieve ‘SOCIAL JUSTICE’ for every Egyptian man and woman.” – Dr. Mohammed El-Baradei http://mtv.com.lb/en/News/215991

Liberal Ideals: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constitution_Party_%28Egypt%29

“In a related development, the Tagammu Party’s political committee will meet today to determine the party’s stance on ElBaradei. The meeting will also look at ways to coordinate action with the “NATIONAL ASSOCIATION for CHANGE” established by ElBaradei before he recently traveled outside Egypt”.

UH-HO!!! Where have we heard those highlighted references before…

Replace a hard-liner for another PROGRESSIVE!!! And, everybody CHEERS???
Remember the euphoria in 2008 for Soetoro? Wash, Rinse, Repeat…

Harbanger's picture

Fuck the idea of ‘SOCIAL JUSTICE’, it's a leftist fabrication.  You either have personal liberty and freedom to express it or you don't.

MeelionDollerBogus's picture

Complete misunderstanding of emergent properties of complex systems on your part.

One can't enforce social justice but if one can detect elements of any system at any level which attack social justice, they can be removed gradually, attacked like a disease facing an able immune system.

...annnd no one sees a problem with this??

Ghordius's picture

LOL - lots of countries where this means "not out of (career) politicians". You know, university professors, entrepreneurs, people who never seeked office and are nevertheless respected... just describing how the word is understood

Temporalist's picture

Unfortunately it seems that those people are picked and not sought.  "Respected" is not a word that I respect any longer.

Odin's picture

Of course any military is reliant on the Military Industrial Complex which is of course dominated for insidious purposes by the Western Elites... Unless Russia decides to bring them in to their fold... Interesting to see how it will play out... At any rate its awesome to see the Egyptian military give a big fuck you to the Muslim Brotherhood...

disabledvet's picture

a lot of flags being flown. strikingly nationalistic actually. Morsi could be construed as being ineffective.
