A simple update regarding our constitutional referendum

The constitutional draft that was created by an illegal Constituent assembly is on referendum this saturday. Until this moment we don’t know the following:

1) Who will supervise: More than 90% of the Judges -who by law must supervise- are refusing to supervise the referendum. The remaining 10% are in no way enough to cover the entire referendum.
2) Who will monitor it: Until now No info has been given to NGO’s or journalists to get monitors passes
3) where people will vote: Until now people have no clue which polling stations they are supposed to go to.
4) When will people vote: The Presidency until now hasn’t decided if the referendum will be on one phase or two phases, and if it’s two, there will be a week separating the first half from the second with results coming out for the first phase a week before the second phase. Very dangerous.
5) Who will secure it: The Army is now responsible for securing it, but said they would only do it for one day, the two phases situation is not in its plan.

Again…The referendum is on Saturday. Today is Wednesday..

    the situation is bad.intransigence and bigotry are seen.a mixture of beliefs,delusions and greed is evident.doing politics as usual seems not an option.problems that should have been settled thousands of years ago,are making a meaningless comeback.so what to do.a yes or no to the referendum is not settling.in either case, the fight will continue. the ballot box is far from ending the dispute, and will not effect any democratic significance ,with most of the voters are either illiterate or disinterested. it will be a ballot of loud noises,empty rhetoric, and will not reflect the impending needs of an impoverished society.the yes result will result in more demonstrations,and the no result will effect the same ones from the other party.the rivalry will continue throughout the planned political course,to no avail. A serious effort, by the uniforms, is deemed indispensable.the president steps down,as a national security concern.the process starts again,with the appropriate legal framework,settling all the violations to the concept of state ,legislation and internal order. the rule of law is exercised in its own right, and its inherent literal meaning.thus providing equal citizenry with obligations and rewards. any other course ,will be an encouragement to all factions to continue the escalation.the escalation will not be without unforetold consequences.

    A MOST IMMEDIATE ALERT TO THE UNIFORMS.
    the referendum starts tomorrow.this is not the problem.the real problem is after results.the unifroms you like words put in sequence,i will put them in sequence:
    1- the referendum result is yes.mass protests at the streets.and of course no possible damage assessment.
    2- the referendum result in no. the MB will do the same ,with no consequence predictions.
    3- Massive confrontations and casualities,the police and the republican guard cannot do anything.
    4- What will the higher military council do ?.
    5- two options ,one is push forces to contain fighting.the second is leave the fighting to continue untill there is danger of a serious internal situation.
    6-if you push forces to the war zones,they will try to stop the fighting.if stopped for the moment,it will continue later ,without the army is able to estimate the casualities and strategic consequences on the streets.
    7- if the limited forces you pushed,cannot stop the fighting ,you have to deploy bigger forces.
    8- if they succeed, again, it will continue later ,without the army is able to estimate the casualities and strategic consequences on the streets.
    9-if the bigger forces cannot stop the fighting,you will have to DECLARE MARTIAL LAW.
    10- by declaring martial law,you put an end to the fighting by force and by necessity.
    11- situation is calm in egypt.and you start A CLEAN POLITICAL PROCESS AGAIN.
    12- every one participates in REAL NEGOTIATONS, WITH GOOD AND OBLIGING OUTCOMES.
    13- ANY ONE WHO DOES NOT ABIDE BY WHAT IS AGREED IS IMMEDIATELY BANNED FROM TAKING A ROLE IN A CLEAN POLITICAL SETTLEMENT,WITH THE COURTS, THE BROTHERHOOD,THE OPPOSITION AND REPRESENTATIVES OF MANY BIG SEGMENTS OF THE SOCIETY OF EGYPT.
    14- if the above OPERATIONAL PLAN fails, there are no more troops left to deploy.and you as the armed forces will lose the war for winning egypt. AND THE ARMY AND EGYPT WILL END UP LIKE HITLER FORCES BURIED IN THE SNOW AROUND STALLINGRAD,WITH NO CLOTHES,FOOD AND AMMUNITION.
    15- THEN,LET CHURCHILL CARPET BOMB DRESDEN (ENEMIES OF EGYPT BOMBARDING CAIRO INTO SURRENDER.
    16- POINT 16, ASSEMBLE ,MAKE THE PLAN,PROTECT THE INFANTRY,THE AIR,THE SEAS AND THE CIVIL RESISTANCE.
    17- POINT 17.OUR EGYPT SLOGAN WILL BE: We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.
    Winston Churchill.
