Cairo - The top leader of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood has vowed to restore ousted President Mohammed Morsi to office, saying Egyptians will not accept “military rule” for another day.

General Guide Mohammed Badie, a revered figure among the Brotherhood’s followers, spoke Friday before a crowd of tens of thousands of Morsi supporters in Cairo. A military helicopter circled low overhead.

Badie addressed the military, saying “your leader is Morsi” and demanding they abide by their pledge of loyalty to the president, calling it “the honor of the military”

He called on Egyptians to protest, saying “we will not be deterred by threats or detentions ... or the gallows.”

“God make Morsi victorious and bring him back to the palace,” he said. “We are his soldiers we defend him with our lives.”

The crowd doesn't look like the millions of people who demonstrated last week for the ousting of Morsi. Looks like the media, as always, inflated the numbers dramatically to suit their own story line.

I wonder how smart the move of the Army was. They would of accomplished much more by keeping their stick high, and forcing a unity government.

I'm looking back at all the critics of Obama who raised worries in the pace the action is taking. A lot of pundits jumped on him that he is pro Mursi and pro muslim. Time will tell if this military take over was good for Egypt and for the world.

BTW for your knowledge, the Tameroids petition which collected 22,000,000 signatures, criticized Mursi for following the footsteps of America to closely. The point is that any stable government, even not to friendly, sooner of later they'll come to reality that they have to live in peace with the rest of the world, and rein in terrorists in their country if they don't want it to come haunt them later (Syria for example). The Mursi government got it, although their retoric, for internal purposes, may of been different. With a civil war, you get screwed up national interests, harbor for terrorists, and no government to keep responsible.

I don't know what was so peaceful about it? between 3 and 16 killed every day. Maybe you only get the news you want to see, keep on reading Fox and listening to 770.

Besides, from their point of view it's a coup, they have a right to go to war. Why blame them? (I'm not saying that they're right, and they should resort to violence. All I said, was from their point of view, should I've been part of them).
