EGYPTIAN MASSACRE, JUSTIFIED?
Icheoku says the military in Egypt may have done the West, especially the United States of America, a lotta good when they forcibly stopped the fundamentalist government of President Morsi and his fanatical Muslim Brotherhood cold in their tract; and it does not matter the nomenclature of their putsch - whether it was a coup or a pseudo-coup. So considering the fact that Ayman al Zawahiri, Osama Bin Laden's second in command and the man currently heading Al Querida, is the general overseer and generalissimo of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, why blame an action meant and geared towards halting this terrorist from acquiring a vital land base to export his terror around the world. Can anyone imagine the damage a closed Suez canal could do to world commerce or the conundrum which a war with the State of Israel would have foist on an already combustive part of the world's geography? Icheoku queries, why give Al Querida a staging ground with such a vital interest country Egypt by allowing Ayman al Zawahiri take total control of Egypt by proxy of Muslim Brotherhood and Morsi, and with it the Suez canal as well as the entire Middle Eastern oil?
Unfortunately Washington and some Americans are hard of learning or rather too slow to learn the surreptitious lesson which was enthroning the Muslim Brotherhood in Cairo; as that would have been the single biggest and best gift to Al Querida which their blowing our twin towers in New York could not have given them. Egypt, the land of the Pharaohs, would have become a proving grounds for terrorists in the Middle East and with it entrenched their scourge on world peace. So without gainsaying or any leg-dragging, Icheoku says instead of hanging the military in Egypt out to dry because of their patriotic act of overthrowing a terrorist-sympathetic government of President Morsi, with the threat of or withholding of our aid to them, Washington should rather increase the aid; and use them to fight a proxy war against remnants of Al Querida masquerading as Morsi and/or his Muslim Brotherhood government or any other nomenclature they devised to hide under.
Recall that Egyptian born medical doctor turned terrorist and current head of Al Querida PLC, Zawahiri, grew his teeth as a Muslim Brotherhood activist before establishing Al Querida with Osama Bin Laden. Icheoku says it does not require rocket science or a PhD in Logic and Clear Thought Studies to figure out that the terrorist chief's lieutenants still abound in Egypt and in the Muslim Brotherhood. So what stops him, Zawahiri, from calling the shots of what the figurehead President Morsi does in Cairo from the caves of Toraborah or Abotabad; including carrying out further terrorist acts on the United States of America as well as any other Western country in their cross-hairs? Therefore whatever action the Egyptian military takes or decides to take, including killing some of the Muslim Brotherhood foot-soldiers in order to stop terrorists from securing a firm staging grounds in Egypt, should rather be commended than chastised.
Icheoku disagrees that what deposed President Morsi and his fundamentalist Muslim Brotherhood had was a democracy; otherwise why were they burning churches and destroying other non Muslim Egyptians' way of life? Democracy as truly practiced, guarantees freedom for all; but a situation where the Muslim Brotherhood shouts democracy and yet would not allow other Egyptians to practice their own faith or conviction falls short of the word defined. It should not just be democracy as far as those fanatic Muslim Brotherhood freely run amok and visiting mayhem on other Egyptians; no, it should be democracy for all - it should be FREEDOM for every Egyptian, period. If only the deposed President Morsi had been killed during the coup or whatever it was that overthrew his government, may be by now Egypt would have moved on without the unneeded distraction of him still being around as a galvanising point with the ongoing clamour for his reinstatement. Icheoku says that Morsi's government was exclusive of other Egyptians who are not fundamentalist Muslims and therefore was bad for democracy strictly defined as freedom loving. It ought to and should go and therefore was well dispatched, case closed.
Icheoku strongly opines that the option in Egypt is simple - either there is a democracy for every Egyptian regardless of faith, including guarantee of their rights to freely worship their God according to their own understanding of Him respectively or there should be no democracy at all; especially according to the Muslim Brotherhood pigeon-holed warped description of it. To this end therefore, Icheoku is emphatic that the Egyptian military did the right thing by stopping the Islamization of Egypt and with it an imminent threat to the State of Israel and the Suez canal. By checking the excesses of these Muslim Brotherhood fundamentalists, the Egyptian military nipped in the bud what would have later proved a sword of Damocles on the entire world. The whole world including America should therefore show some understanding of the peculiar nature of the threat posed by allowing a Zawahiri tele-guided government of Morsi in Cairo and not in anyway pretend to be more catholic than the pope or be seen as being more sympathetic to known TERRORISTS.
Icheoku says the Egyptian military are Egyptians; Egypt is their country and no one or any country can pretend to love Egypt more than its military. As chief security officers therein, they acted in the best interest of their country by checking an existential threat which the Morsi led Muslim Brotherhood government represented. Think of Israel; think of the economic importance of the Suez canal; think of other incendiary situations therein in Middle East and their potential unravelling; and then juxtapose them with the known Muslim Brotherhood's positions and dispositions towards them and it should have been more of kudos to the Egyptian military for acting when they acted than the current politically-correct knifing. Icheoku says hail to the Egyptian military for their decisive action in stopping the Muslim Brotherhood before they could cause further damage to a citadel of civilization. No sacrifice, no price, no trade, including the alleged slaughter of mere 1000 Islamist fanatics, is rather too much for what inaction and the continued existence of the Morsi Muslim Brotherhood government would have portended. ENOUGH of the chastising of the Egyptian military!
