Egypt’s Army Vows to Fight to Death As Morsi Remains Defiant
Obama’s BFF Morsi is in trouble.
Check it out:
Egypt’s military vowed to defend the country’s people against any “terrorist, radical or fool” hours ahead of its deadline for President Mohammed Morsi to resolve the nation’s political crisis — or face intervention by the army.
“We swear to God that we will sacrifice even our blood for Egypt and its people, to defend them against any terrorist, radical or fool,” read a post on the official Facebook page of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, which is headed by Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi.
A military source told Reuters that the statement — issued after Morsi appeared on state TV late Tuesday to once again reject an ultimatum from Sissi that he share power with opponents or face military action — reiterates that the armed forces would not abandon their demands.
