Chaos In The Mideast As Unrest Spreads

Posted By on February 13, 2011

Anyone that thinks the problems are over in the Mideast had better rethink things.  Egypt is but one match in a box full of match sticks.

Cairo, Egypt (CNN)— Egypt’s military dissolved the country’s Parliament and suspended its constitution Sunday following the ouster of longtime leader Hosni Mubarak, telling Egyptians it would be in charge for six months or until elections can be held.

The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces said it would appoint a committee to propose changes to the Constitution, which would then be submitted to voters. The council will have the power to issue new laws during the transition period, according to a communique read on state television.

Sameh Shoukry, Egypt’s ambassador to the United States, said Sunday that the generals have made restoring security and reviving the economy its top priorities.

“This current composition is basically a technocratic government to run the day-to-day affairs, to take care of the security void that has happened, and to also address the issues related to the economy,” Shoukry told CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS.”
