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:


Mursi is unhappy:


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.






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.


Live feeds from Cairo:


Fireworks, Lasers, and screams of joy (for now)...

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.

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.

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.

Are you referring to Publius?

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".

Which will almost certainly  be supplanted by the most stable of all states... namely.. a Kleptocracy.

That is IF they even could get rid of the existing Kleptocratic structure which was being severely impoverished by the deteriorating economic conditions under Morsi... and as we all know has a formidable presence in the WAIT FOR IT... military.

Now, after a year with the SCAF as executive, and many of Gamal’s associates facing investigation or in exile, Egypt’s economic trajectory looks remarkably similar to that of 2010. No longer do silk-suited technocrats enjoin Egyptians to forgo living wages, safe working conditions and political accountability in pursuit of “economic growth.” But khaki-clad officers echo the argument that social justice must wait, accusing those who demand it of scaring away tourists and foreign investors. Proximity to political power is still the primary path to economic privilege, and the traditional constituencies of the interventionist state -- civil servants, peasants and the urban poor -- remain marginal. In tandem with transnational capital, the army seeks to corner markets even as it mouths free-market nostrums. And Military, Inc. may do the Mubaraks one better: With Gamal’s crony capitalist allies out of the way, there is no longer any competitor whose ambitions are a counterweight to the army’s appetite for economic expansion.

Wasn't it Jefferson who said that the people have the right to withdraw their consent to be governed when a government no longer acts in their best interest? The Egyptians withdrew their consent. The Army did not want a repeat of what happened the last time. Here is a little secret every dictator knows: They only rule as long as the army is happy. Stalin and Mao were the exceptions. They kept their armies in line through purges and constant fear of the secret services. Evidently, the Egyptian presidents hadn't bothered to copy this plan.

Your absolutely correct. The powers at hand want brother against brother. Division creates weakness and the outcome is synthesized- Creating a new system that is in favor of the hierarchy and in turn crushes the republic. Begin the peace rally Cabra. What is holding you back? Talk what is in your heart that you no longer can withhold from the pressure of tyranny. Unite to create the awareness so to battle the evil and how their agenda is leading the children to a desolate future. Remember, we are culpable for our actions so one can not simply point the finger to the evil and say I can not change. Stand up and walk! We must show the courage to be peaceful. Instead, we restrain ourselves. Money? Yeah, I can see us all now. "I'm almost retired so I can't mess up my pension." Or is it comfort? "I like the convenience of not dealing with all 'that' mess so I just do my job and go fishing on the weekends." Do what actions you must for your local community and speak righteously.

It may happen to Barry the way it happened to tricky Dick.  It took 26 months from the uncovering of the Watergate affair until Nixon resigned.  We learned about Bengahzi how many months ago?  WHen they find our where Barry was that night and what he was doing it will be game over.  (I believed he sacrificed our people to keep the affair manageable for election purposes - he would not send in the troops to keep it from blowing up into a major event).  Then there is Lois Lerner, who now wants immunity to testify...hmmm, wonder what she knows?  And there is much more from the department of dirty tricks...

Ummm... Watergate was a scripted takedown (aka a coup), while Bengahzi was a script that was interrupted by people not in the know. So, there really is no comparison between the two.

"Thank you. The President was a strong and brave man who's principles and beliefs never wavered, and which we must continue to strictly adhere to and carry out, in accordance with his last wishes.

As you know, we have captured the cultural institutions of this country. The institutions that shape the souls of the young. The schools, the colleges, the movies, music, and the arts. They all belong to us now.

At the moment, we are giving people a new identity, and erasing the collective memory. We are rewriting the history books. Nothing was more important to our President than bringing peace to this war torn country. Peace, a lasting peace, can only be achieved through strength.

So, in my first act as the new President, as the leader of the new government, this new regime, we will begin to deploy troops immediately to the southern regions, we will resume the bombing in the jungle. We will begin executing and enslaving prisoners, and that includes those who have preached diversity but who have never practiced it, and those who decried intolerance but were the least tolerant of all. We shall deal with them in a harsh manner.

Remember this, life is a chess game, where all the pieces are the same color. Your self-discipline shall be watched and judged.

Furthermore, we will alert the rebel leaders hat the negotiations have ended. There will be no more compromises. No more concessions. Only complete and utter and unequivocal surrender.

We have learned a valuable lesson. Great nations do not fight small wars. We have seen the difference between winners and losers. Those who are victorious, win first then go to war, while the defeated go to war first and then seek to win.

There will be no more stupidity. No more mistakes.

It's a new day.

God help you all."

perhaps also because it's very complex. you have to understand lots of involved countries & parties in the 19th century. It's hard stuff, for really interested, persistent student of history.

Dear Lord Rothschild,

I have much pleasure in conveying to you, on behalf of His Majesty's Government, the following declaration of sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations which has been submitted to, and approved by, the Cabinet.

"His Majesty's Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country."

I should be grateful if you would bring this declaration to the knowledge of the Zionist Federation.

Yours sincerely,
Arthur James Balfour

The British also promised Palestine to the Arabs. It's less famous, since Lord Rothschild was not involved:

During 1915-1916, as World War I was underway, the British High Commissioner in Egypt, Sir Henry McMahon, secretly corresponded with Husayn ibn `Ali, the patriarch of the Hashemite family and Ottoman governor of Mecca and Medina. McMahon convinced Husayn to lead an Arab revolt against the Ottoman Empire, which was aligned with Germany against Britain and France in the war. McMahon promised that if the Arabs supported Britain in the war, the British government would support the establishment of an independent Arab state under Hashemite rule in the Arab provinces of the Ottoman Empire, including Palestine.
