Al-Jazeera Video: Egyptians united in call for civilian rule

"Thousands of Egyptians are back on the streets of Cairo.

Revolutionary groups and supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood seem to be united in their call for civilian rule.

They want the parliament reinstated and the ruling military council to hand over power to the new president.

Al Jazeera's Mike Hanna reports from Cairo."

If the Muslim Brotherhood and Salafis form a coalition government and God forbid they do things that you (Zara and Tony) don't like, what do you think the Egyptian Army should do?

Personally I don't trust the Salafis or think they are committed to democracy or freedom or that they want to allow another free election once they come to power. On top of that they are sectarian.

What should the Egyptian Army do?

In my view, maybe the Egyptian Army must remain loyal first to the constitution and not to the civilian government, to ensure that Egypt remains a free democracy.

What are your thoughts?

Zara, Tony and everyone else, it looks like Assad shot down an aircraft in the Turkish air force.

Should NATO invoke article 5. An attack against one is an attack against all. Should NATO deploy a quick reaction force to defend Turkey?

What does everyone think?

Why did Assad do something this stupid.

"to defend Turkey"

Is Turkey as a country under attack or is it ONE jet plane (which made an incursion inside Syrian territory, unless I'm mistaken) that was shot?
Your sense of proportion and measure are an example for all of us to follow, anan. Hehe.
