Egypt: The unfolding crisis
Two years after the revolution, the dramatic turns in the country raise questions about democracy and dictatorship.
In this documentary, we analyse the two-and-a-half year story of the events that led to the ousting of a president after 30 years of autocratic rule, the first free and fair elections in Egypt's history, a new president elected and then deposed 13 months later, and a cycle of violence that has taken the country to the verge of civil war.
Egyptians for the first time have a real choice in terms of who they want to lead the country. In this election they’re voting for individuals and it’s the first time they’ve got the opportunity to actually decide the individual that they want to lead them ....

Egypt's military chiefs, the Supreme Council of Armed Forces (SCAF), headed by Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi now ran the country. But, believing that they had fought hard to secure political change and driven by a determination to pick their own leader, the Egyptian people continued their protests.
The Mansour government says it plans to call new elections within 12 months, but can stability be restored in a way that enables ordinary Egyptians to regain their hard-earned freedoms and to re-build their lives, their economy and a brighter future?
The Egyptian military is now not any more a national Army as Mubarak has studded the last nail on the coffin of loyalty to Nation... It is because of the fact he as the head of the state was a paid agent of Israel.And he betrayed by sharing Israeli's money with all ranks and files of the army personnel and doomed the Army's loyalty to the nation or the country. This army has gone mercenary. It is reported that the Army chief even now is paid by Israel huge amount of money to protect Israel. The Army chief carried out the Coupe De'tat at the behest of Israel’s instigation. It is said that the ministers are Israeli's selected tail wagging dogs..
The situation has gone beyond Army control. Now civil war is eminent and is knocking at the door. Those who brought the army to power should get prepared to pay a high price. They should be ready to shoulder the responsibility of the mass killing of the Egyptians by the Army, Para Military force and police in the name of getting the law and order situation under control.
At the end of the day, Gen SISSE is already registered along with all his Ministers and Generals as to have committed crime against humanity. One must remember that No power is permanent.
