Egyptian Navy Ship attacked by insurgent “terrorists”

Back in December 2013 I warned that the unacceptable US and EU backing for the Egyptian coup on the basis of an Orwellian idea called the “roadmap to democracy” was going to make it impossible for the Muslim Brotherhood peaceful revolutionary strategy to hold, especially since the majority of Muslim Brotherhood leaders are behind bars.

I said that this would mean Egypt’s youth, especially in the South and East, would cease to follow the MB’s peaceful strategy and turn to violence

This has been borne out since there have been 18 fatal attacks against the Egyptian army in Sinai involving over 100 soldiers and some 25 various explosions in Cairo and in provincial cities aimed at the police which involved over 25 policemen.
