The military establishment in Egypt is obviously unhappy about its losing extra power in emerging new Egypt. .
It has come to light now that there was an attampt in Cairo to kill president Mohammed Morsi and take power by the military. However, it is not clear if the Pantegon eng couraged the Egyptian military to stage the coup and murder.
Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi dismissed top 12 mlitary officers recenlty. The dismissals came after Israeli attackers killed 16 Egyptian soldiers at a border outpost in the Sinai desert. The attackers were killed when they crossed the Israeli border.
The dismissals of the senior army officers has left Morsi, the candidate of the Muslim Brotherhood, more powerful than before.
Egyptian security officials have revealed that the recent dismissal of Egypt ’s defense minster, army chief and other top officers was meant to prevent a coup that was planned for later this month.
According to the Egyptian media reports, military officials told Egyptian leader Mohammed Morsi that plans were being hatched within the army to take over power and even to assassinate Morsi himself during the funerals for the soldiers killed in Sinai. So Morsi did not attend the funeral. -------
