The Brotherhood too has apparently reached out to the military. But it appears the military may take a hard line with them:
Top Muslim Brotherhood negotiator Amr Darrag said that the group is open for talks but after “confidence-building measures.” However, he added, “the other side didn’t show a single gesture or any sign that it is ready for dialogue. It only talks about it but no action.”
Time will tell how this works out for Egypt, but at the moment it appears the military has the support of a majority of the public, has an opposition that is fracturing and may have the Muslim Brotherhood on the ropes. Do they let them recover or do they attempt to finish them off?
If they have any regard for the safety and security of their people and their nation, not to mention their own hides, they will do everything they can to finish off the Muslim Brotherhood and its assorted fanatical hangers-on.
Because these fanatics believe there can be no end to their war with heretics and infidels other than total victory and submission on the part of their enemies. Any “truce” will be nothing more than a temporary halt to permit them to regroup and heal from the wounds that have been inflicted on them.
As the old saying goes, “If you would kill the king, then make sure you kill the king.” They tried, and failed. Now the king should kill them.
If he wants to stay king, that is.
