Defies Military’s Deadline
By Harold Hutchison
Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi vowed to remain in office, defying not only protestors assembled in Tahrir Square, but also the Egyptian military. The protests against Morsi’s rule have turned violent, with 152 people injured on Monday.
Morsi, who took power last year, has been seen as more interested in advancing the goals of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Obama Administration helped push out the regime of Hosni Mubarak, which had held power for 29 years.
Is Egypt about to explode into civil war?
