I found it interesting that after all the marching, all the demonstrating, and rioting, after forcing Former President (Dictator), Mubarak out of office. After trying him for murder, and even now as the man lies near death in a prison hospital, that the resounding Bell of freedom rings with nothing more than a dull thud across Egypt.
What a sad commentary for a people who want nothing more than a voice in their future, and a halt to all, the violence the seems to dominate the world of politics.
Those who once dominated government, and quietly stood ready to murder anyone who dared actually, really, seriously, challenge their authority, including now former Dictator President Mubarak, could not let it go. They could not let the future be what it should be. The very perception of the loss of so much authoritarian power was obviously too much to bare, and they dissolved Parliament, the legislative body of the people, and reduced the power of the President, and the Army will dictate the composition of the new Egyptian Constitution. In short my friends……The military overthrew the Nation of Egypt.
It was nothing more than a military cue, an overthrow, and the taking of government. They made the announcement of what they were doing in the best interest of the people and of course the security of Egypt, as well, I am sure, their own job security, just hours after a national election that was watched by the free world.
At first there was stunned silence for the Egyptian people. but soon after they regained their composer, they were in the street once again raising the cry for freedom. The United States has warned the generals that this action is questionable.
But according to the Christian Science Monitor, ‘ The military leaders fear the ascendency of Islamist politics and their own demise, But their latest move, including the introduction of martial law in advance of the court’s ruling, has exposed to democracy-hungry Egyptians where the greater concern should lie.
It is all to clear to the people that their biggest fear, like that of so many dictatorships is their own military.
What a sad commentary for the people of a nation seeking the ideals of freedom and that of a truly democratic state.
Who got hurt in all this? Mubarak lays dying in a Prison Hospital, the Parliament dissolved, and martial law replaces the law of the land. The President, elected by the people pushed to the wayside by a military bent on absolute rule, has left the hopes the people in a void. What they thought they had, never existed. And now they are faced with a far more serious set of circumstances. A well armed military machine that might do the Juntas bidding. Or will they?
That question remains to be answered. The answer will come from the people.
That’s my point of view ………..What do you think? …….. I look forward to your insight.
Have a good night………….and as usual………. God Bless America!
