The latest news from Egypt raises a very troubling political question:
And if we are at that point, is a military takeover the only viable option? The US has spent decades condemning military coups (albeit selectively...) - is this one of the "good ones" that we should welcome rather than criticize?
Not knowing boo about Egypt, I can't answer any of these questions, of course. But the questions themselves intrigue me - despite our faith in "freedom" and "democracy", there may well be limits and circumstances where holding another election is not the answer.
