Egypt’s president orders return of parliament

See it here. If the US really supported democracy, it would come out in favor of Mursi’s call to reinstate the parliament - through words and deeds.  The most important deed would be to threaten to cut off military aid. The truth is, however, that the US supports the SCAF because the military council ensures that Egypt will not drift too far from US policy interests, not national interests, but policy interests (i.e. Egyptian support for the siege on Gaza, Egyptian recognition of Israel, Egypt remaining part of the anti-Iranian alliance in the region, etc.)
