Why Egyptian Army is silently watching over the brewing crisis?



Anchor for Allvoices


President Mohamed Morsi granted himself vast powers. He holds on to such powers without judicial review of the Supreme Court of Egypt. This action of Morsi invited too much anger that boils down at Tahir Square and in the streets of Cairo.

Restlessness at the square, on the streets of Cairo and elsewhere in Egypt indicates people’s sentiments against the coming back of dictatorship hence, Morsi is branded as the “Pharoah of Egypt.” Young and old Egyptians alike pelt stones at armored policemen as they control the crowd. The crisis becomes tense each passing day. It is now undeniable that Egypt is in chaos.

Egyptians oppose Morsi becoming a dictator. He calms down the restless people telling his grab for vast powers is “temporary.” How temporary becomes permanent? As long as Morsi does not divest himself of such powers, he holds on to them permanently. Where is the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces? Where is the Egyptian Army? Why they are all silently watching the chaotic situation?

Does the present situation in Egypt prolong Morsi’s presidency?
