Morisi was elected just 1 year ago by a substantial majority and he has not delivered the goods over the course of the past year so rather than wait until the election giving him a chance to try get the country into shape they instead decided change is not coming quick enough and we got rid of Mubarak by taking to the streets so now we can get rid of Mori by taking to the streets and I imagine if they are not happy with any successor to Morisi then they will take to the streets again demand his resignation. As for the military they have NO RIGHT to be telling Morisi to step down or else. The army is supposed to answer only to the serving government, they might well feel a sense of solidarity with the protestors but it is their job to back to stay out of politics do as Morssi tells them to do and if any soldier cannot handle that then he is welcome to hand in his resigntion but the army as an institution cannot get politicaal and demand the elected president resign. The arabs just do not seem to understand the concept of democracy.
