Cairo (CNN) reported that two years after massive demonstrations forced out longtime leader Hosni Mubarak, Egypt finds itself right back where it started. This time, protests led to the removal of Mohamed Morsi, the country's first democratically elected president. Some are calling it Egypt's "second revolution."
This latest coup toppled Mohamed Morsi as president of Egypt yesterday (July 3) and it brought hundreds of thousands of people into the streets across Egypt to both applaud and assail the generals' decision to take control of the country's politics for the second time.
Egypt had been under Mubarak's dictatorship for 30-years and, now just two years after their revolution for freedom, the people are free and not scared to voice their opinion, protest and to remove their country's first democratically elected president because he failed to achieve the goals of the people and failed to meet the generals' demands that he share power with his opposition.
In Fiji, however, its been seven years since the military commander overthrew the democratically elected Qarase government and is holding the country hostage while he and his corrupt group of friends and family rob Fiji of its wealth and native lands. Meanwhile there is still no mass uprising of the people against the military dictatorship. Only piecemeal protests by brave individuals have occurred since the coup of 2006 but they have been easily overrun by sadistic and brutal military goons.
A protest by a united group of people is the key, as shown by the Egyptians. Not 3 years ago it would have been a crazy idea for an Egyptian to even contemplate Mubarak's removal. But within a year it not only was possible, it was achieved.......
