Mike Luckovich on Egypt’s Coup

Comment: See Ramzy Baroud's excellent analysis at Dissident Voice entitled "ElBaradei’s Democracy: How Egypt’s ‘Revolution’ Betrayed Itself" (July 10).

This passage from the article perhaps sums it up best:
"What took place in Egypt, starting with the orchestrated ‘revolution’ on June 30, from the army’s ultimatum, to the military coup, to the shameless reinvention of the old order – accompanied with repopulating the prisons and sending tanks to face unarmed civilians – was not only disheartening to the majority of Egyptians, but was a huge shock to many people around the world as well. Egypt, which once inspired the world, is now back to square one."
