The way you hear Kerry and Obama speak, you'd think the Muslim Brotherhood are a reasonable group that can be negotiated and reasoned with. They are burning churches and killing Coptic Christians; today they are having a "day of rage". First they attend their morning prayer, then they go out in the streets for their day of rage. Of course the military isn't looking any better having killed hundreds of them in the last few days. I think this situation was headed towards a violent showdown no matter what, but the military decided to escalate things sooner.
And there sits Israel.
