It can now be said that President Barack Obama was instrumental and outspoken in causing the ouster of Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak, even though Egypt had been a friend of the United States and had kept general peace in the Middle East for some 30 years, especially between Egypt and Israel. President Obama, in calling for a democracy in Egypt and new elections, had to know that there was only one well organized political party in Egypt at the time, the Muslim Brotherhood. Sure enough, Mohammed Morsi, the head of the Muslim Brotherhood, became president of Egypt.

Editor: While our politicians both Democratic and Republican decry the removal of Mohamad Morsi from office by the Egyptian military, the point is lost that when an elected leader becomes a power grabbing tyrant he must be removed. The Muslim Brotherhood is the sworn enemy of the United States, Israel, Saudi Arabia and the other gulf states. The Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist origination period. They assassinated Anwar Sadat because he signed the Camp David peace treaty with Israel.

Maybe everyone is misreading America's views on foreign policy? Among Republicans, there's a big argument between the so-called isolationist wing of the party and the ostensibly interventionist wing. On the left, there's a similar debate (though liberals are never described as isolationists no matter how isolationist they might be). Among Democrats, the dividing lines are murkier if for no other reason than the Democratic Party takes its lead from President Barack Obama, and his own views are murky, to put it charitably.

From the start, it was a world-class piece of political theater. The recent massive demonstrations involving millions of Egyptians are said to have persuaded the Egyptian military to throw President Mohammed Morsi out of office. Actually, however, military and opposition leaders along with government and business officials appear to have planned all of it in advance. What better evidence could there be than the sudden, overnight resolution of several major problems that infuriated millions of Egyptians, prompting them to demonstrate?

Mohamed Morsi holds a singular distinction. While president of Egypt, he was the world's only democratically elected leader to motivate more than 20 million of his people, one-quarter of the population, to sign a petition calling for his ouster. Millions of these people began showing up at angry, sometimes violent demonstrations in Cairo and other cities a week ago, the one-year anniversary of his rule. They're irate about Mr. Morsi's blatant leadership failures. Egypt is riven with enervating economic, political and social problems of the sort it has never experienced before.

Egyptian army tanks are rumbling through the streets of Cairo in an ominous show of force that leaves little doubt that the country's fledgling experiment in democracy has been seriously disrupted. The whereabouts of President Mohamed Morsi, the country's first democratically elected leader, are unknown, and the generals directing what the president's advisors have condemned as a "military coup" have yet to fully explain their intentions. The political situation is still very much in flux.
