This is an extremely sad and an extremely hilarious headline.
How does a democracy allow a Field Marshal to choose a Prime Minister? The answer to that lies in the fact that democracy, as an idea, is a great thing if people are willing to embrace it. Egypt wants no part of "Western" democracy. To let the people vote would be insane, apparently. What Egypt wants is for everyone to go home and stop protesting.
This is what the Arab Spring was supposed to lead to? A failed government fails some more, people protest, the government represses those people, and then we see the military choosing a Prime Minister?
I guess people will have to get on Twitter and Facebook and stop this.
