    sorry Mr. ELBradei you switched our rank in the failed state index; we are now 31 last year was 45 so we are worst in 2012 than 2011. you mentioned a 7% growth, well, in what exactly. ppI now reminisced Mubarak era not because we still face same corruption but we are way worst.

    There is no real opposition in Egypt! The opposition in Egypt seeks for jumping over the democracy process! we had a fair election and a fair referendum and all the world have seen how fair those were! but the opposition refused it!
    If they really need a democratic country they must accept the results whatever it's as it's fair and it represents the people will!
    If united states is going to support any side it should support the government as it represents the people will and it works for the benefits of the country.
    Media shows what happened in Egypt right now as it's a second revolution against the elected president but that is not true. Many of people who are supporting the president are at home and don't want to rally at streets to avoid the clashes with the oppositions!
    Mr Elbaradie talked about violence but he must blame himself and his coalition because they started with violence and it's pretty easy to watch that on CNN how their protests turned to be violence by using molotov and stones against the security forces and throw it on the presidential palace! I'm wondering why he didn't mention that part on this interview!
    They played on making people hate revolution by many protests everywhere and how it harms people all time,it harms their safety and their jobs and then he is blaming muslim brotherhood and the president!!

    only brotherhood members support Morsi, the rest of Egyptian blame themselves for supporting him. he simply has zero ability as a president. all he does till now is to lie. no one knows who exactly runs Egypt, everyday some one from brotherhood party announce a statement and anther one deny the same statement few hours latter. Morsi are blinded by brotherhood office they just want him to follow their secret political agenda. it's somehow Iranian scene: Morsi is just their nice puppy who can obey whatever they want. unfortunately, the opposition parties aren't all at the same wave. so let street rule the game.

    Right on Mr. Baradei, Morsi is a total failure, he's only supported by his party and those around them who know that if they leave the power they'll go to jail. They are in a survival battle and do not care what happens to the country or the people.

    Morsi cannot fill the chair of President. His political party is incapable of running a nation. How could such a turn of events have occurred in Egypt without the overall will of the people? Clearly, the current occupiers of the Presidential Palace have struck a series of secret deals with the Egyptian Army that fortifies their positions.

    If the Brotherhood is to be removed and they should be since they are highly incompetent (God doesn't run nations, people do!) powerful deals with the Egyptian Army need to be made. Only the Army can save Egypt now. Not the people. The people have neither the means ($'s) nor power (guns) to bring about effective change and they are sadly deluded if they believe they can.

    This begs the question – why is the Egyptian Army in cahoots with the Brotherhood? Why has the Army allowed these turn of events to take place without so much as a hint of dissent? Blood on the streets is entertainment to the masses and a smokescreen covering up far more sinister events. Who in Egypt's Army has sold out to the highest bidder?

    Opposition members and carefully selected members of foreign intelligence bodies need to join hands with the right people in Egypt's high command instead of running around the streets of Cairo burning kiosks! Egypt's gullibility (accompanied by lots of shouting and raised voices) has allowed deadly forces to take control by 100% deception and manipulation. The people of Egypt are far too emotive to make informed decisions at the moment.

    Choose your battles opposition members and stop firing of in all directions. Focus your attention on those that procure weapons in the Ministry of Defense/Army/Finance. Set up a sting! Wake up!! Destroy the MB from within and build an internationally financed underground network.

    And most of all........figure out a way to make the West support you instead of MB!!!!
