    Dear Sirs,
    I would like to confirm the message that the Egyptian Military power is possessed by the Egyptian people and the key role of the military power is to protect the egyptian boarders as well as to protect the egyptian people from inside threat. The Egyptian people revolted against Morsi and the Muslim brotherhood because Morsi didnt fulfill his promises to the Egyptian people. although he came via democratic free elections , he failed to implement the democratic element. Morsi came via democratic free elections but didnt practice any democracy, His performance was against multi patry government. " we the egyptians gave order to the militry power to take an action aganist Morsi , and the militry power took an action "
