Egypt's military rejects swift transfer of power and suspends constitution
Ruling military council intends to retain power for six months or longer while elections are scheduled and will rule by decree
The Egyptian military has rejected the demands of pro-democracy protesters for a swift transfer of power to a civilian administration, saying it intends to rule by martial law until elections are held.
To which I will add, they will rule beyond elections, as they did under Mubarek!
The army's announcement, which included the suspending of the constitution, was a further rebuff to some pro-democracy activists after troops were sent to clear demonstrators from Cairo's Tahrir SquareIf you have been reading here for the last little while, you may recall that back on Feb 02/11. I made this statement.
In a sign that the army will only tolerate a limited (no) challenge to its power, it is expected to issue a communique on Monday saying that it will crack down on those creating "chaos and disorder" as well as effectively banning strikes.
"The protests/protestors did not address the basis of their problems. They did not strike at the root. They will end up worse off then they are now."
I can assure you I'm not psychic, cause if I was.... I would have already picked the winning lottery numbers and been outta here! ;)
The information was out there it was accessible to anyone and besides, this game plan has been done before.
