Even though the 18 months of military rule between the fall of Mubarak and the elections were terribly unpopular, Morsi’s government is worse.

Yet, the news media scoffed at people who predicted that oppressive sharia based governments would result from the "arab spring." And even after what we have seen in Egypt, the US is sending another $120 million in aid to islamic supremacists in Syria.

"It is a measure of how bad things have gotten in Egypt when news agencies report that a growing number of Egyptians would prefer a return to military rule over their first and current freely elected government." ................ Well, so much for the Arab Spring. But just how "free" were these elections? The fact of the matter is that the Islamic Brotherhood was the only political organization in Egypt with any kind of on-the-ground structure at all and they made the most of what were essentially rushed elections. Morsi and his Brotherhood supporters represents more oppression than Mubarak or the military ever did--or could, because HIS particular brand of oppression is one of the spirit as well as of the body. Mubarak was a deeply flawed leader and the subsequent military dictatorship had no clue how to run the country, but the average Egyptian had far more freedom, of thought as well as of action, under either of them than they do under the boot of Morsi.
