The military does a coup, rounds up the leaders of the civilian government, and it's considered a step in the right direction? Shares of the Cold War, where the US is happy to back anti-communist goons; the old saw of the the era was "He's an SOB, but he's our SOB."
Or, borrow from Tom Lehrer's Send the Marines; "they've got to be protected,all their rights respected, 'til someone we... like can be elected."
Morsi as Allende, maybe? If Cold War II is against devout Islam, a popularly elected Muslim theocon (at least theologically so, the Brotherhood has a strong charitable streak which is one of Islam's nicer traits when done right) gets shown the door in Egypt like the popularly elected Marxist got booted by the military in Chile 40 years ago.
For now, we have low-grace civil unrest (that got typoed in from low-grade, but low-grace fits all too well), with 13 protestors getting killed in Alexandria today. You could have seen this coming from a mile away, the first Friday after the coup, and the sermons in the pro-Brotherhood mosques would rouse the rabble, although the rabble don't need much rousing after their leaders were arrested en masse in the last two days.
It's currently a two-way fight between the military and the secular-leaning protestors on one side and the theocons on the other. If history is any guide, we may have a three-way fight, with both the Brotherhood and the secular protestors being ticked at the military, which seem to be going back to their Mubarak-era style of stifling anti-military protest in general and Islamic protests in particular.
It will take some uncomfortable realpolitik for the US, on both sides of the aisle.. The Morsi team wasn't helpful with Israel and Gaza, but backing a set of Cold War style authoritarian SOBs in the name of anti-Islamism is something that the Obama team is not comfortable going with. Neocons won't be happy, either, since democracy is getting a reboot at best and a jackboot at worst; this weeks move will get spun by the Egyptian powers that be as the latter, but it's looking more like the former.
Only the paleocons and anti-Islamism folks will be happy. The more cynical foreign policy vets might nod warrily at a return to some Cold War pragmatism at the expense of democratic idealism. If you're not a civil rights paragon but you're anti-Islamist, you're the new order's kind of SOB.
