For those of you who do not remember, Morsi was the democratically-elected President of Egypt, who came to power on the surge of what the western media inaccurately calls "The Arab Spring". Then, a year into his term of office, army officers who feared his constitutional shenanigens amounted to a coup, had him arrested and removed from office. He's been on trial several times. 

BTW, I'm not showing sympathy or antipathy for Morsi. I believe the situation is interesting, however. One does wonder, however, if Pres. Sisi will end up like Mubarak, or even Morsi.

 

Thoughts?

Sisi is already worse than either. Morsi brought about his own downfall with authoritarian policies but the West should have protested the overthrow of Egypt's first democratically elected leader more vehemently.

Why? Was it really in our interests to see the Muslim Brotherhood grab most of Parliament and the Presidency of Egypt? Try telling that to CIA.

Well then, let’s be more honest about our interests. If we want compliant dictators in control in the ME for the foreseeable future come out and say it: our murderers are preferable to their mullahs.
