I would rather have a police state rather tahn the islamists running around with guns as if they are in a jungle 1000 years ago.

Everything going according to plan as Hilary and military commander Tantavi discussed right after democratic victory of Mursi. Country is going to be looking more or less like Pakistan with autocracies, dynasties, democracies and coup.

@Khalid: I fully agree with Mr. Khalid. No no please no Islamists as they are today. See what is happening all around.
