Muslim Brotherhood offices torched, Morsi on defensive - EGYPT - FRANCE 24

As enraged demonstrators torched Muslim Brotherhood offices in several Egyptian cities, a defiant Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi defended his recent decree granting himself sweeping powers before a crowd of supporters outside the presidential palace in Cairo Friday.

"Political stability, social stability and economic stability are what I want and that is what I am working for," said Morsi. "I have always been, and still am, and will always be, God willing, with the pulse of the people, what the people want, with clear legitimacy" he said from a podium before thousands of supporters.

Sunday morning TV ... MSNBC ... Up w/ Chris Hayes; discussing Morsi attempting to establish himself as absolute dictator, but then someone comments, "How does he enforce this?" and it always comes down to who has the guns and how will they use them.

Love this species!

They tried to assimilate me. They failed.

The IMF reached an agreement a with Egypt for a loan only a few days ago. Could this have something to do with the protests?
