Supporters of the outsed Muslim Brotherhood government have taken to the streets and have come under attack from the military-backed interim government. The death toll is already up to 525, with thousands injured.
I have mixed feelings about this. The Muslim Brotherhood was democratically elected by the people of Egypt. The current government violated the democratic process when they staged a coup to overthrow them. This is all undeniable.
But I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to see the Muslim Brotherhood fail. The middle east needs another fundamentalist regime like it needs a hole in it's head. I'm disappointed that the Egyptian people would elect such a government in the first place. But democracy is what it is.
