Several articles by apologists for imperialism have admitted that the U.S.-NATO led war that overthrew the Jamahiriya has been a disaster for the country and its people. These failures are now being utilized as a rationale for deeper imperialist intervention.
Egyptian organizations have called for an investigation into the death of activist Mohamed El-Gendy. Meanwhile demonstrations have continued across the country against the Freedom and Justice Party government of Mohamed Morsi.
