For those of us who are slow to grasp what just happened, today, in Egypt, and to what’s going to follow; here is a fair analogy to help seize it. In a first and close election of the United States in 2008, Obama defeated McCain by a small margin. McCain, who has never heard the word “democracy” before, finds it hard in his heart to accept the defeat since he firmly believes he is born to lead. He rallies all the enemies of Obama (and there are tons of them, here), talks to the old buddies in the military and pointed out the fact that Obama has some secret plans to promote the black cause in America and convert all the Caucasians of America into Blackness. The US military issues a 48 hour ultimatum to Obama to reach a deal with McCain alliance or face a military coup. Obama fells that he should not step down since he is elected by the majority, by a small margin, but still the majority. The pro and against Obama and the pro and against McCain and anyone between will take the country down in a bloody civil war. It will take the world two more years to decide if it a coup or not occurred. The neighbor countries, Mexico and Canada are delighted at the situation since their enemies will be inter-killing each other, and the Mexican and the Canadian holy blood will be spared. And everybody will live forever happy, except the Americans, I mean the Egyptians.
